Key Feature Snapshot



CIT MODES

Custom fit your Nexus LW to your riding style. Start by selecting your favorite CIT mode on the leading edge bridle connection points. The wave mode makes the kite turn faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar making foot changes a snap. The freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. The kite comes out of the bag in allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime.

Complete your personalization by adjusting the steering line connection points to set turning speed and bar pressure. But don’t worry, the kite comes ready to fly in the most common settings.

Nexus LW - 3 Strut Frame

3 STRUT LIGHT FRAME

Three strut greatness. They initiate turns faster than similar five strut designs which is an important consideration in waves. Our three strut frames save weight, deliver better lightwind balance, and improve drifting. Additional dacron optimization strategies save more weight and provide improved slack-line drifting. Three strut perfection. Strong. Stable. And light.



FUTURE-C SHAPE

Derived from the GTS’s canopy shape, the Nexus LW’s moderate Future-C design delivers fast, tight turns and precise control.

REACTION TIPS

For catlike reflexes on monsters. We finetuned the Nexus LW’s wingtip shape for pure wave riding magic. Enjoy the confidence inspiring reflexes, agility and directional control in waves of all sizes.



EXOTEX® SLIM STRUTS

The benchmark for performance Dacron. No-stretch ExoTex Dacron incorporates a unique radial reinforcing thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables higher pressure airframes with smaller diameters. ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by substantially increasing tube strength and rigidity despite reducing diameters. How can you tell? Look at the radial seams on our leading edge. Do you see any seam bulges that disturb airflow? Not anymore. Instead, expect smooth airflow, snappy turns, and endless smiles on your new Nexus LW.

CORETEX® LIGHT

Exclusive to CORE. Our ripstop material is a lighter weight fabric created solely for our LW range. This lightweight fabric improves low wind performance yet provides incredible breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. Feel the tight, crisp signature of a CoreTex Light kite.

ULTRALIGHT WINGTIPS

ExoTex® Dacron provides an opportunity for weight saving leading and trailing edge designs while protecting areas in contact with the beach during launching and landing. Those areas are particularly robust and designed to take a beating.

Nexus 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.

ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

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

SPEED PUMP SYSTEM

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

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.

INSTANT RELAUNCH

A quick relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave that is about to eat your kite. We designed the kite to 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.









Sensor Barsystem

SENSOR BAR READY

The Nexus LW is optimized for CORE’s ultralight Sensor bar system. They feature precise kite control, unmatched safety, and uncluttered simplicity. Find out why everyone is going crazy over our Sensor 2S here.
