Skyscraper

Your Air Venture begins now.

Now’s a great time to retire your hangar queen(s) and start planning your next mission on an XR7. Better yet, get your whole squadron on the XR7 and rule the skies.

See how easy it is to earn your wings with the XR7’s new canopy material, precise flight control, and new, lighter build. After six years, our signature canopy material receives a major upgrade. CoreTex 2.0 now features massively improved tear resistance in both directions, slight weight savings, and a new emulsion that improves flight, durability, and longevity.

While newly enlisted kiters will enjoy its ease and range of use, experienced pilots will feel improved inflight stability. The overall lighter construction, ExoTex Light Struts, marginally lighter (polyester) canopy, and iterational shape and bridle improvements have our testers telling us the XR7 is more turny, and playful than ever. That’s what we like to hear from our Universal Series Big Air kite. So what’s stopping you from grabbing an XR7, Sensor Bar 3, and Fusion 5 twintip for some incredible sessions?

Bring your squadron to a CORE demo site and join our Airforce. Or, visit your local authorized CORE retailer for a closer look. 

THE XR7 IN DETAIL

How do we build the XR's legendary linear response that delivers effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings? With technological innovations like our flight control system, our unique safeties, and our intelligent trim system. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, Intelligent Arc increases the XR7's wingspan with a simple pull on the bar. Now, let's dive into the details and highlight some of the improvements we made. 


 

Key Feature Snapshot

CORE XR7 Kite - Delta Bow Shape

Delta Bow Shape

The XR7 incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept-back wings of a delta kite. Our airfoil is engineered to rip upwind when underpowered, boost bigger on demand and get you planing first! Our latest design benefits from optimized wing profiles.

 

 


 

CoreTex® 2.0 Triple Ripstop

CORETEX 2.0® TRIPLE RIPSTOP Canopy New!

Exclusive to CORE.

Our industry-leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is even better. The marginally lighter canopy fabric features massively improved tear resistance, stiffness, and durability. A new coating process aids stability in higher winds and jumps. CoreTex 2.0 sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection, and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.

CORE ExoTec - Ultra Rigid Dacron

EXOTEX® Ultra Rigid Dacron

The XR7's leading edge features our benchmark performance Dacron. ExoTex incorporates a unique thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables a higher pressure airframe. No-stretch ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, airframe rigidity, and rider feedback. Expect snappy turns. Explosive lift. And endless smiles on your new XR7.

EXOTEX® Light Struts New!

After extensive evaluation, we replaced our ExoTex strut material with ExoTex Light, a super tough yet lighter version of our industry-leading airframe material. It's been real-world tested for 2 years now so we're confident in its durability. You'll immediately appreciate how the XR7 feels a little zippier in your hands.

XR7 - 5 Strut Frame

5 Strut Frame

This kind of muscle needs five struts. 

The bombproof, five-strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the XR7 design to stabilize the additional power created by our Intelligent Arc system. And they massively improve the kite's performance in the upper wind range.
 

Faster Turning Speed CORE XR7 Kite

Faster Turning Speed

Small moves in bridle attachment points have a huge impact on any kite's performance. We think we've found the magic spots that deliver a fast-turning, responsive kite that loves to be thrown around.
 

CORE Intelligent Trim System Modes

CIT Modes

Custom-fit your XR7 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 and increases depower. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar. 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 superb 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.

Intelligent Arc

 

Intelligent Arc

Intelligent Arc is a bridle configuration that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the XR7 increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheeting out makes the kite fold in its wings and depower. Intelligent Arc helps you rip upwind, extends your float time, and cushions your landings.
 

Short Bridle System

SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

Short and sweet. 

The super-short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite’s position. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.

INSTANT RELAUNCH

Instant relaunch really is instant! The XR7 is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position when it hits the water. One quick tug on the bar and the XR7 launches itself effortlessly. Riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water when time is of the essence. And beginners gain confidence knowing their kite will be flying in no time. So go ahead and try some new moves, you know your XR7 has your back.
 











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 pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

CORE XR7 Speed Pump System

Speed Pump System

Supersonic single point inflation. This model receives shorter air hoses to reduce weight and improve airflow to the struts. When you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts.

XR6 - GrinTex®

GRINTEX® Patches

Anti-wear patches where you need them. 

Extreme abrasion-resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points give the XR7 another level of protection from perfectly placed beach hazards.
