Nexus

The Player.

Meet the multi-talented Universal+ Series Nexus with fully customizable handling. An athletic kite that is never too cool to learn a new trick. Whether it's on your favorite surfboard or twintip, the Nexus brings exceptional versatility to wave and freestyle riding. 

Our latest design is a product of the phenomenal Section 2, the indomitable GTS and fourteen years of intensive kite development. An allrounder that instantly endeared itself to our wave+ prodigy, Willow and megaloop rockstar, Akkie. 

Amazing things happened when we spliced the genes of the GTS4 and Section 2 into the Nexus. Take for example the Nexus’ CIT, the fancy acronym behind the kite’s adjustable handling modes. It lets you finetune the kite’s power and turn radius. Akkie likes his megaloops big and powerful, so he selects the CIT’s freestyle setting whereas Willow prefers the wave mode for tighter loops (on his bottom turns). The wave mode also makes the kite turn faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. We can’t forget to mention the CIT’s standard setting. In allround mode, the Nexus pulls a little more, increases hangtime (woohoo!), and turns a little slower. Perfect behaviors for newer kiters, and anyone who prefers a more relaxed riding style.

The all-new Nexus inherits many of CORE’s best innovations including its linear power delivery, three strut frame, and Radical Reaction Tips from the GTS. It also acquired the incredible handling, huge wind range, and Surf Profile from the Section 2. 

The new Nexus makes fast friends everywhere. Like a big day on Silver Rock’s legendary reef. Or the buttery lagoons dotting Portugal’s west coast. 

Nexus. Willow and Akkie approved. And we’ve seen what they can do.

Two characters. One kite.















I think it’s when like-minded people are doing like-minded stuff, there’s a connection, and you just enjoy it. No matter what.

You really get pulled and dragged into your own zone. That’s what I really love about kiteboarding.

Key Feature Snapshot


CIT Modes (new)

Custom fit your Nexus 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.

CIT Modes: Wave / Allround / Freestyle
Nexus - Future-C Shape

Future-C Shape

Derived from the GTS’s canopy shape, the Nexus’ moderate aspect ratio Future-C design delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. Picture yourself carving perfect bottom turns while down-looping your Nexus and not getting yanked off your board. You can thank the Nexus’ Future-C shape for those perfect turns even in big conditions.

 

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. Three strut perfection. Strong. Stable. And light.

Nexus - Radical Reaction Tips


RADICAL 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.


EXOTEX® ULTRA RIGID DACRON

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.

CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY

Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry-leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.

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

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.







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 strut valves allow uninhibited air flow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)
