RADICAL REACTION TIPS NEW!
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.
3 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 in waves.
EXOTEX® Light Struts NEW!
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.
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.
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.
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.
