Key Feature Snapshot

Reaction Tip - CORE Nexus 2 Lightwind Kite

Reaction Tips

For catlike reflexes on monsters. We fine-tuned the Nexus’ leading edge profile (especially between the bridle and steering lines) to provide added confidence-inspiring reflexes, agility and directional control in waves of all sizes. Slightly widened tips improve the Nexus’ reaction, agility and relaunching. 

3 Strut Light Frame

Three struts just turn better. Fewer struts allow the kite to twist better which improves wave performance and kiteloops. Additional weight savings are achieved with new ExoTex® Light struts and leading edge. Our lightest dacron frame ever delivers effortless and balanced drifting for amazing fun in the waves.

CORE Nexus 2 LW - Future-C Shape

Future-C Shape

The Nexus 2 LW relies on our proven Future-C shape. The moderate aspect ratio shape delivers smooth and controllable turns with an unmistakable “on-center” feel. Try a Future-C kite, and you’ll never go back ;)


ExoTex® Light Slim Struts NEW!

No-stretch ExoTex Light replaces ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron in the struts and frame. The new Dacron incorporates a re-engineered radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that reduces mass by approximately 10%. The new lighter struts and leading edge improve balance and control.

Nexus 2 LW - Ultralight Wingtips

ULTRALIGHT WINGTIPS

Weight savings are achieved with minimized ExoTex usage on the wingtip's leading and trailing edges which boosts light wind performance. Their geometry absorbs the dynamics of the larger three strut frame sizes. 

Nexus 2 LW - Surf Profile

SURF PROFILE

The maximum camber is shifted further back, and its aspect ratio is lowered (that means it’s a little fatter) to improve drifting. Give it gas, and the Nexus LW comes alive! The surf profile also improves wave riding in onshore winds as this wing shape loves to go upwind and not backstall when riding down the wave.

 

 

Short Bridle System

ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

Short and sweet. The Nexus 2 LW’s super short bridle system improves feedback, so you have a better feel for your kite’s position. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.

Speed Valve 2

SPEED VALVE 2

No special hose adapter needed here! The Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump effort. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

Speed Pump System

Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and optimized strut valve locations allow uninhibited airflow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)

INSTANT RELAUNCH

A quick relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave that is about to eat your kite. The refined tips and swept wing help the Nexus 2 find its relaunch position in a jiffy. Wave riders will appreciate how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug especially when time is of the essence. And foilers will appreciate the kite’s improved reverse launching ability.

GrinTex®

GRINTEX® Patches

Anti-wear patches where you need them most. Extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut tips give another level of protection from perfectly placed beach hazards.
