Core 17m XR4 LW (Demo/Used)

The new XR4 LW (Light Wind edition).  Available now through Hangtime Kiteboarding.

The 4th generation XR is here. A power delta bow kite for pure adrenaline pumping hangtime. A high performance all-rounder that delivers ridiculous whoo-hoos in any conditions.

The new XR generation is still the same power freeride machine loved by beginners and pros alike for its no nonsense comfort and ease of use in waves or freestyle.

CORE carried over features like their Intelligent Arc flight control and Short Bridle System that made the previous generation so good in the first place. They tweaked some features to make them even better. Like reducing pump time by improving airflow in the Speed Pump System. And adding new Grintex® patches on the leading edge and tips for better protection.
