Core Nexus 2 Freeride Kite Kitesurfing


Take a look at the new Core Nexus 2 Kitesurfing Kite (Black) at Boardworx

Gone are the days of travelling to the beach with heaps of gear a quiver of wave kites, a quiver of freestyle kites and a separate set of kites for boosting. Prepare to meet the Nexus 2 with the new Core ExoTex Light struts. An athletic kite that is never too cool to learn a new trick whether on a strapless surfboard or your dependable twintip, the Nexus 2 brings incredible versatility to wave and freestyle riding. The secret behind the Core Nexus 2s versatility is due to its highly refined three strut Future-C shape and proprietary materials that combines the proven surf profile of the Section with the kiteloop pedigree of the GTS.

The Nexus 2, is technically billed as two kites in one, but we found at least three things its really good at. Just set the kites CIT Modes to match the beach conditions and go have fun. Be it hard cutbacks on your favourite wave or a sublime backroll, the Nexus 2 will excite your senses.

Certainly, its great in waves, with more lift than a Section so it boosts better as well, but the slackline control is still there in spades and you can mess with the settings. One way for Surf, the other for freestyle on which settings if you have been trying that handles trick and not nailing it then chances are you will with the Nexus, its a lot more forgiving, less punch in the face than say the GTS.

Then in the middle settings, its just a great freeride kite, what makes it good at waves and freestyle also means it excels for intermediates wishing to just go ride, or push their individual envelopes. Its not an XR5 so if you dont know how to jump, pick your kicker, load and release its not going to take you to the moon like the XR5 will, but if you do know all that good stuff then it will do it better as the guys found out in Cape Verde where they broke the island height record using it.

Then there is foiling, lots of folks have spotted that what makes kites good in waves also makes them good on a foil, but there is a little bonus with the Nexus particularly when your foil taking upwind, it is extra lift in the vertical just gives you that extra through the tack, try one you will see what we mean.

So there you have it what is that? did we say three kites in one? Well maybe make that four.. and friendlier than the fire from a US AirForce Warthog.

This kite normally has a 5 day delivery time
