The Intelligent-ARC makes the Riot XR3 a true jumping machine. The inspiration behind the Intelligent-ARC comes from nature: As a bird is able to glide without flapping its wings, for long durations of time, so to the Riot XR3 spreads its wings when the bar is pulled in. We call it Big-Air power on demand.
This principle allows for a more powerful down stroke which assists with early planing. It also reduces shear forces. Upwind ability is also made more efficient as a result.
Conversely the projected surface of the kite is reduced when depowered, like a flying bird. This adds to the agility of the kite when depowered and allows for precise turns. This characteristic makes the Riot XR3 ideal for riding in the waves.
The Riot XR3 is the first kite to benefit from the use of the exclusive CoreTex® Triple Ripstop fabric. It not only increased the durability, tensile strength and air permeability but also infuses the kite with a very crisp ride.
The new Short Bridle System improves the, already quick, response of the kite to steering and makes for an extremely dynamic turning ability. The Riot XR3 scores highly in waves with its agility and precise bar feedback. It allows you to feel exactly where your kite is at all times.
A real comfort feature of the Speed Pump System is the new Speed Valve 2. You’ll be able to pump up your Riot XR3 in a significantly shorter time whilst being able to deflate the kite in seconds. Even bigger kites are now able to be inflated and deflated with greater comfort. How is this possible? The pump hose is able to be placed inside the Speed Valve 2 valve. This allows the air to flow through the almost three times bigger valve diameter without hindrance.
The Riot XR3 features the proven CORE Speed-Pump-System:
The tube is positioned in a service friendly manner – tight and streamlined with the fabric.
The CORE Intelligent Trim System allows you set the bar feedback levels and turning speed.
The turning speed can be adjusted from “super fast" and "fast" to "medium". The kite feedback levels can be set between “direct” and "medium" to “super direct”. The bar pressure is adjustable between "super light" and "light" to "medium". You can customize the settings to suit your individual and session needs – within seconds.
The kite’s factory settings are ideally set up for 90% of all kiters.
The intuitive safety release is activated by turning the ROTOR-Quickrelease with a minimum level of effort. In contrast to the conventional push-out system it requires no power against the flow of the water. This gives you an extra level of safety.
The SENSOR-Bar System allows for a pressure-less release on the virtual fifth line. Re-launching is easy and safe. The big linear depower range of the Riot XR3 adds to the safety and control elements when over powered.
Our philosophy is that you should have the maximum amount of enjoyment for the longest period of time with our products; and in addition you should be able to rely on them completely. This philosophy is realized in the selection and processing of materials.
Only the highest quality materials are used, such as the new CoreTex Triple Ripstop fabric. This is a high performance material with a unique manufacturing process: single fibers are first coated before they are woven and then finally heated to achieve the finish. This ensures that every single fiber strand is sealed and that the fiber will not absorb water, even after prolonged use. The triple reliable security fiber of the Ripstop material makes the fabric tear resistant and noticeable increases the durability.
You can feel the quality and vigor of the material when you pick up the kite lines. All the lines and pulleys on the kite are “Made in Germany”. We develop and produce them in conjunction with our partner Liros in Germany. Liros lines are renowned, in flying sports, for the consistent perfection of their production, reliable stiffness, abrasion resistance, kink resistance and safety.
The flying lines of the CORE SENSOR-Bar have a breaking load of 368kg at a diameter of only 1.8mm and thanks to their smooth surface, they are especially user friendly to lay-out.
Attention to detail: We devided the kites profile into 20 single panels of fabric to get out the maximum of flying performance out of the kite.
