AV8 1X TRIMLITE (4:1 RACE TRIM)

 

***

“The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kite boarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency.

 

Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind driven supercar in every respect.” - Pete Cabrinha.

      CORE XLITE: FOIL
      Specialized Series, CORE’s line of highly focused, single-purpose gear adds a new kite. The XLITE answers the call for a dedicated, high performance foil kite. A no compromise, all in, one strut inflatable with features unique to the niche discipline of foiling.
       

      1). Core XLite
       
      A tailor-made foil kite.
      One of foiling’s defining attributes is the ability to #gokiting when traditional kiters can’t. Hydrofoils are so efficient that they need a kite that flies in virtually no wind. "We set a very high bar when we release a new Specialized Series product and our new foil kite is no exception" comments Philip Schinnagel, CORE's managing director. XLITE, an offspring from the Nexus and Section kites, went through a comprehensive lightweighting program which shed 20% in weight. Foiling the XLITE in 8-10 knots has never been easier.
       

      2). Core XLite
       

      3). Core XLite
       
      The devil is in the details.
      Mass reduction isn’t easy. So, CORE experimented with new leading edge materials, bridles, andone strut designs. After exhaustive R&D, our designers zeroed in on CoreTex for the canopy and new ExoTex Light for the leading edge. "CoreTex brings power and support to our single strut canopy" explains Frank Ilfrich, CORE's chief designer. "And our testing found ExoTexLight is similar in strength as our currentExoTexleading edge dacron yet is 10% lighter." New, lighter bridles (and redesigned attachment points) prevent line snag when relaunching. No detail was too small to lightweight. In the end, CORE’s 20%mass reduction target was achieved.
       

      4). Core XLite
       
      The power of the Nexus and the drift of the Section.
      The XLITE’s design genus is inspired by CORE’s wave phenom, the Section, and the Nexus, a multi-talented allrounder. The XLITE benefits from the Section’s drifting skills in waves. Yes! The XLITE is wave ready! Send the XLITE, and you’ll feel that Nexus power in super light winds. Enough juice that allows you to size down. CORE’s designers increased the canopy’s aspect ratio (higher than the Section) so the kite can keep up with the foil at speed. With perfect kite balance and super direct bar feel, the XLITE makes learning new moves a blast.
       

      5). Core XLite
       
      CORE’s new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar completes the package.
      SLE foil kites are sensitive to heavykite lines that sag and affect steering. To maximize yourXLITE'sperformance, we recommend our new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar.It comes with a shorter all carbon bar in 39/45cm width and super adjustable lines that are 20% thinner. Thinner lines also improve water relaunching in marginal conditions. The foil bar comes with 22m Tectanium lines (16m+2m+4m) that are rated for 300+kg. Additional 3m extensions are found in the bar bag for those who prefer longer lines.

      Our new dedicated foil kite takes off:
      CORE XLITE
       
      FOIL BETTER.
      A one strut inflatable with features unique to foiling.
       
      Specialized Series grows again.
      It’s been a while since we introduced a new product under the Specialized Series banner, our line of highly focused, single-purpose gear. We’ll never add a product to this line unless we can make something special. Extraordinary. For the select few who appreciate the finest, laser-focused gear. The new XLITE ticks all the boxes and answers the call for a dedicated, high-performance foil kite. A no compromise, all in, one strut inflatable with features unique to the niche discipline of foiling.

We developed thinner, anti-snag bridles that further reduce weight and improve water relaunching. No detail was too small to lightweight. In the end, we hit our 20% mass reduction target. And we're super happy about that!

      CORE’s new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar lights up any foilboard.
      SLE foil kites are sensitive to heavy kite lines that sag and affect steering. To maximize your XLITE's performance, we recommend our new mid-sized bar (39/45cm) Sensor 2S Pro Foil. Wow, long name! The new bar comes with an all carbon design and super adjustable lines that are 20% thinner. Thinner lines reduce drag and improve water relaunching in marginal conditions. The foil bar comes with 22m Tectanium (16m+2m+4m) lines rated for 300+kg. Additional 3m extensions are found in the bar bag for those who prefer longer lines.
