Perfection through Simplicity

  • CORE Sensor 3 Bar

Perfection through simplicity

Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the ultra-light Sensor 3 – a legendary control bar with groundbreaking features.

 

Key Feature Snapshot

Feel.

No gimmicks. No unnecessary features.
The Sensor 3's elemental design delivers superlative feel and comfort.

Titanium Core - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

Titanium Core

Super light and strong.

The integrated titanium truss ensures our twin auto-untwist center lines that pass through the center of the bar do not affect the bombproof rigidity of our bar. It might be overkill, but we prefer it that way. And if the center lines wear out the bar guide, replace it with a fresh one.

Control.

The whole line setup and depower system is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback, control, and fly-by-wire feel.

Live Wire NEw!

Feel more "connected" to your kite with floaters that don't interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. And adjust bar width (50/46.5cm) by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. We also disappeared the elastic line keepers into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.

Auto Untwist

Twisted lines are a thing of the past. 

Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3 bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet "between the fingers" comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and special coating.

4:1 Adjuster

Simple. Fast. Easy. And proven.

Our block and cleat system reduces pulling forces by a factor of four making quick adjustments in gusts a breeze (pun intended:). And the adjuster rope features an elasticized construction which shortens and keeps the line out of your way.

Connect.

A bar's safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3's new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.

SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)

CORE's exclusive hybrid system combines the advantages of a single front line, double front line, and fifth line safety. When deployed, it blows out the front line (below the "Y") eliminating pull. At the same time, a pulley system shortens the second front line (above the "Y") which moves the kite to a stable and safe relaunch position. 

CORE Supported Single Frontline Safety
Short Safety Leash - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

SHORT SAFETY LEASH

Extra short is extra safe.

A short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our 50cm leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It's easier to see or grab, and it won't tangle. If, on the other hand, you see yourself unhooking in the future, we have a Pro Leash for you.
 

The CORE advantage


 

LINES MADE IN GERMANY

CORE tough. 

Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with line innovation and workmanship. They pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. Only 1.8mm thick and a breaking strength of 368 kg, the Sensor 3 lines will perform beyond your expectations.


 

Lines Made in Germany - CORE Sensor 3 Bar
Spliced Ends

SPLICED ENDS

For a better hold.

We splice all our ends before sewing for a more permanent hold. It's a little more work, but this method guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics.

Replaceable Bar Inserts

Simple and replaceable.

Bar inserts that surround the depower lines lubricate them as they pass through the bar to reduce wear. The inserts are also easily and inexpensively replaced without tools.
 

Tectanium® Powerlines - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

Tectanium® Powerlines

Strong and durable.

The front lines from the "Y" to the chicken loop use our exclusive, low stretch, Tectanium. And we protect it with a 5.2mm, UV-stabilized, Polyether where it passes through the bar. Techno speak for really durable, self-lubricating, no pinch, depower lines. The virtually frictionless, depower/safety lines are more aerodynamic, provide better feedback, and are more comfortable between the fingers. Just wait till you try it. You'll see.

Sensor 3 Tectanium Powerlines

 

Anti-Slip Coating

More grip's always better. 

Special rubber is applied to the bar ends and CIC release 
to give the surface even more grip when wet.

 

 

Sensor 3 Pro Multibag

Multibag

More than just a bag.

The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3 bar when you're on the road. Accessories, tools, spare parts, line extensions, and optional loops can be stored in the bag's compartments. The mesh insert on the back guarantees proper ventilation. Fold it away or hang it up in a visible spot, so you don't forget it.

HIGH-Quality Raw Materials

A bar is only as good as the quality of its parts and processes.

We use thermoplastics primarily used for the production of precision parts using the injection molding process. The colorless, semi-crystalline polymers are characterized by extreme rigidity, low frictional resistance, and amazing dimensional stability.

Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. This gives titanium the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. Plus, titanium is impervious to salt. For these reasons, we've used titanium for the control bar truss, as well as the quick release and bar end grub screws.

Marine-grade A4 stainless steel is used for the remaining metal components. The higher proportion of molybdenum minimizes corrosion and delivers years of reliable performance.

Only the best stuff goes into the Sensor 3.

High-Quality Raw Materials - CORE  Sensor 3 Bar

Sensor 2+ - Vario Lines (18, 20, 22, 24)

SENSOR 3 BAR. PLUS FOUR LINE LENGTH OPTIONS.


A Sensor 3 bar with four line length options. Maximize your kite’s performance. Easily and inexpensively with the new Sensor 3+. A bar that replaces the standard 24m lines with our Vario lines. Vario lines are Liros sourced, 18m lines with a 2m and 4m extension. As a result, the Sensor 3+ can be outfitted with 18, 20, 22 or 24m lines. Go short in the waves. Or longer in your next race. Without buying more bars. Sensor 2+. Save money. Experiment. And have more fun.
 

ACCESSORIES

CORE LOOPS & STICK SETS

Standard Loop - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

Standard Loop

The small loop comes standard on the Sensor 3 and is designed for freeriders and freestylers who mostly ride hooked. The smaller loop size lowers the adjuster height, which benefits shorter riders. An elasticized chicken stick is easily manipulated to make hooking in faster. After hooking in, the chicken stick can be passed through the harness hook to avoid unintentional unhooking.

Rope Slider Loop - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

ROPE SLIDER

The Rope Slider loop is our recommended solution for wave and foil riders who use a rope harness. Its compact design brings the bar closer to the body and improves lateral movement without annoying harness slippage. To reduce friction and wear on the spreader bar rope, the metal surface of our loop is finely ground by hand. The Rope Slider is only intended for use with a sliding rope spreader bar. The safety ring can be attached in semi-suicide mode, so the leash's carabiner stays at the same level of the quick release and out of the way.

Pro Loop - CORE Sensor 3 Bar

PRO LOOP

Radical wakestylers, freestylers, and unhooked kiters will prefer our largest available chickenloop. Its size makes unhooking and hooking back in easy and intuitive. Naturally, the distance to the trim adjuster increases, so you should keep that in mind. To prevent unintentional unhooking, use the chicken stick and when you don't need it, simply move it outside the loop where it won't get in the way.

PRO LEASH 3

Radical free- or wakestyler? The Pro Leash 3 is for you. Its length enables comfortable passes without the "straitjacket" feel. A new swivel guarantees smooth spinning, and a generous protective neoprene sleeve over the carabiner prevents unintentional release. Please note that a leash connected to the back of your harness is more difficult to release than the regular leash. Do not select this option if you ride hooked in.
