XR4. Any wind. Any style. A power delta bow kite. For pure adrenaline pumping hangtime. A kite that delivers ridiculous whoo-hoos in any conditions. A kite that always has your back.
From freeriding to surf the 4th generation XR delivers control in the gusts and power in the lulls. Your ticket to relaxed cruising, explosive boosts or sublime wave riding. Experience for yourself the XR’s chameleon like ability to transform to any style or riding level.
How can we build a high performance all-rounder? With technological innovations like our flight control system, our unique safety system and our intelligent trim system. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the XR4 increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, when sheeting out the bar, the XR4 will fold in its’ wings and depower. It is this kind of innovation that exemplifies the design team’s drive to create the perfect all-round kite. And the market responded, making the XR series a bestseller. And now available in white or black.
Technically identical, the new black edition delivers the same whoo-hoos as our classic white edition. The same comfort and high performance you expect from an XR series kite. The XR4 features:
Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite can deliver.
Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise, tight pivot turns. 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. This is the new XR4.
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 XR4 increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheeting out makes the kite fold in its’ wings and depower. Intelligent Arc. For precise, controllable power and depower on demand.
The classic, bombproof, 5 strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the XR4 design to stabilize the additional power created by our Intelligent Arc system.
The XR4 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!
Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. But don’t worry, the kite comes out of the bag ready to fly so you can play with the adjustments later.
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.
Supersonic inflation! We re-routed the speed-pump strut distribution hoses to make air flow faster into the struts. We did this for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kit
Instant relaunch really is instant! The XR4 is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your XR4 has your back.
The XR4 is fully compatible with the Sensor 2 or the titanium cored Sensor Pro bar which features precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. Find out why our bars work best for the XR4 here.
