NEW! RADICAL REACTION TIPS
The Nexus 2's agility is on fire! Wider, optimized wingtips improve control and give the Nexus 2 even more sporty and dynamic behavior. A side benefit of its wider tips is improved water relaunching – a big bonus for foilers. For catlike reflexes on monsters. We fine-tuned the Nexus’ leading edge profile (especially between the bridle and steering lines) to provide added confidence-inspiring reflexes, agility and directional control in waves of all sizes. Slightly widened tips improve the Nexus 2's reaction, agility, and relaunching.
NEW! EXOTEX LIGHT STRUTS
You'll find ExoTex Light on the Nexus 2 for the first time. It's lighter. It drifts better. And foilers will notice its improved light wind performance. No-stretch ExoTex Light replaces ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron in the struts. The new Dacron incorporates a re-engineered radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that reduces mass by approximately 10%. While ExoTex is used for the leading edge, the new ExoTex Light struts improve the Nexus 2’s drifting and turning speed – important attributes for freestylers and wave riders.
STRUT LIGHT FRAME
Three struts just turn better. Fewer struts allow the kite to twist better which improves wave performance and kiteloops. Additional weight savings are achieved with new ExoTex® Light struts. Our lighter dacron really helps the kite drift effortlessly.
The Nexus 2 naturally retains its proven features. CIT Modes adjust the kite's handling to the prevailing beach conditions. Its Future-C Shape, Surf Profile, and Ultrashort Bridles give the kite a distinctive, playful character. And our proven triple ripstop CoreTex canopy delivers the performance and longevity you've come to expect from a CORE kite.
NEXUS 2 LW
Same CoreTex Light canopy. New ExoTex Light leading edge and struts makes this our lightest LW ever. Imagine the fun you'll have with this baby. Nexus 2 LW. Light wind's never been this exciting!
CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY
Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry-leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection, and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.
EXOTEX® ULTRA RIGID DACRON
Our ExoTex powered leading edge promotes more twist yet still maintains a rock-solid shape. More twist initiates faster turns. No-stretch ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron incorporates a unique radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that can withstand higher pressure. ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by substantially increasing tube strength and rigidity. How can you tell? Look at the radial seams on our leading edge. Do you see any seam bulges that disturb airflow? Not anymore. Instead, expect smooth airflow, snappy turns, and endless smiles on your new Nexus 2.
The Nexus 2 relies on our proven Future-C shape. The moderate aspect ratio shape delivers smooth and controllable turns with an unmistakable “on-center” feel. Try a Future-C kite, and you’ll never go back ;)
SENSOR BAR READY
We optimize the Nexus 2 and 2 LW for CORE’s ultralight Sensor bar systems. They feature precise kite control and uncluttered simplicity. Get the most out of your Nexus 2 with our all-new Sensor 3 featuring Stealth Winders, CIC Push-Out-Release, and Live Wire. Sensor 3. Perfection through simplicity.
ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM
Short and sweet. The Nexus 2’s super short bridle system improves feedback, so you have a better feel for your kite’s position. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.
Choose your character by selecting your favorite no-snag CIT modes on the leading edge bridle connection points. The Freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. In Wave mode, the kite turns faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. The kite comes out of the bag in Allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime. Finish your personalization by adjusting the steering line connection points to set turning speed and bar pressure. But don’t worry, the kite comes ready to fly in the most common settings.
The maximum camber is shifted further back, and its aspect ratio is lowered (that means it’s a little fatter) to improve drifting. Give it gas, and the Nexus comes alive! The surf profile also improves wave riding in onshore winds as this wing shape loves to go upwind and not backstall when riding down the wave.
A quick relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave that is about to eat your kite. The refined tips help the Nexus 2 find its relaunch position in a jiffy. Wave riders will appreciate how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug especially when time is of the essence. And foilers will appreciate the kite’s improved reverse launching ability.
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 effort. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.
