And nothing but.
Serious foilers will feel how light and responsive the XLITE 2 is in the air. And how it loops with just enough pull to get you safely around your air jibes. Beginners will appreciate the XLITE’s reverse launch ability. Whether it’s foiling lake Garda, foilsurfing Silver Rock’s swell, or freestyling your home spot, the XLITE 2 will light up your foil.
ONE STRUT LIGHT FRAME
MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
Our single strut frame delivers better lightwind control than strutless kites by reducing excessive canopy flutter. Single struts also offer superior water relaunching capabilities over strutless kites, especially in lighter wind and surf conditions. Go one strut!
CORETEX 2.0® Canopy New!
Exclusive to CORE.
Core’s 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 -a big plus- for three strut wave kites. CoreTex 2.0 sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection, and elongation.
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. Expect snappy turns, less weight, and endless smiles with your Section.
BUILT FOR THE LIGHTEST DAYS.
The efficient light wind profile generates power and speed with a maximum camber that is shifted further back to improve drifting. Give it gas, though, and the XLITE 2 comes alive! You’ll feel in total control bearing downwind and carving those delicious air jibes.
Don’t be left in a lurch.
A quick relaunch is critical in lighter winds and surf conditions. So, we designed the kite to reverse launch when needed. The mono strut makes water relaunching in the surf a breeze compared to strutless designs.
SPEED AND PRECISION.
The XLITE 2’s slightly higher aspect ratio Future-C design delivers fast, tight turns. Broader tips generate stable, balanced flight with precise control. Picture yourself carving at speed while gracefully down-looping your XLITE 2. Yup, it’s that easy.
YOUR XLITE, YOUR WAY.
Ultrashort Bridle System
Short and sweet. The XLITE 2’s super short bridle system improves feedback, so you better feel your kite’s position. And the new anti-snag bridle attachment points improve water relaunching. Now, imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain. We modified the bridles for the 2 and 3-meter sizes to further improve handling.
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.
