SENSOR 3 PRO
Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the carbon powered Sensor 3 Pro – with all the groundbreaking features of the Sensor 3 but built in a carbon fiber construction and with Tectanium Vario lines.
Ultimate performance has a name: Sensor 3 Pro!
The incredibly light and rigid carbon fiber composite reduces the bar's inertia, which in turn improves response and control. Kitesurfing has never been more precise!
Super light and strong.
The integrated titanium truss ensures our twin auto-untwist center lines that pass through the center of the bar do not affect the bombproof rigidity of our bar. It might be overkill, but we prefer it that way. And if the center lines wear out the bar guide, you can always replace it with a fresh one.
STEALTH WINDERS NEW!
No divots, sharp corners, or hard protruding ends on this bar.
The clean, minimalistic bar ends create no new contours to interfere with your fun. After your fun sesh, the soft bar ends fold open to reveal hidden line winders. Nifty!
The narrow, non-slip asymmetric grip is easy on the hands – even for marathon sessions. Contrasting colors provide improved left/right visual guidance. And a thin redline on the underside lets you know if the bar is reversed.
Every part of the bar is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback and control. And now, with 100% Tectanium lines, the Sensor 3 Pro delivers the ultimate fly-by-wire feel.
TECTANIUM® VARIO LINES
Exclusively developed for CORE by Liros, the market leader in specialized aeronautical and sail cordage.
The no stretch Tectanium center and steering lines are 400% more resistant to elongation and feature an unbelievable 50% higher breaking strength. The 10% thinner lines are also noticeably more aerodynamic. Our adjustable length Tectanium lines let you fly your kite at 18, 20, 22, or 24 meters with its base 18m lines and 2 extensions.
LIVE WIRE NEW!
Feel more "connected" to your kite with floaters that don't interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. Adjust bar width by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. And the elastic line keepers disappear into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
Twisted lines are a thing of the past.
Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3 bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet "between the fingers" comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and coating of the front lines. Welcome to the era of auto untwist!
Simple. Fast. Easy. And proven.
Our block and cleat system reduces pulling forces by a factor of four, making quick adjustments in gusts a breeze. And the adjuster rope features a new elasticized construction which shortens and keeps the rope out of your way.
A kite bar's safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3's new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and, most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.
CIC RELEASE NEW!
Safe is good.
The heart of our new CORE Intuitive Connect Release is our push-out and easy click-back-in quick release. The red CIC Release cap is designed to provide a superior grip in emergency situations. And reconnecting the quick release is as simple as re-inserting the chickenloop end into the CIC mechanism until you hear it click in. CIC Release. Just release and click back in.
The Sensor 3 comes equipped with our standard triple ring. The triple ring is not only easy to hook your leash to but also allows you to easily attach a second leash while transferring the kite to a friend. We also include a wakestyle combo ring for experienced unhooked kiters. Do not use the combo ring unless you have advanced wakestyle skills. Product images show the combo ring.
SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)
CORE's exclusive hybrid system combines the advantages of a single front line, double front line, and fifth line safety. When deployed, it blows out the front line (below the "Y"), eliminating pull. At the same time, a pulley system shortens the second front line (above the "Y"), which moves the kite to a stable and safe relaunch position.
SHORT SAFETY LEASH
Extra short is extra safe.
A short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our 50cm leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It's easier to see or grab, and it won't tangle. If, on the other hand, you see yourself unhooking in the future, we have a Pro Leash for you.
THE CORE ADVANTAGE
LINES MADE IN GERMANY
Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with innovation and workmanship. Liros pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. You'll immediately notice the quality when laying out your lines for the first time.
For a better hold.
We splice all our ends before sewing for a more permanent hold. It's a little more work, but this method guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics.
REPLACEABLE BAR INSERTS
Simple and replaceable.
Bar inserts that surround the depower lines lubricate them as they pass through the bar to reduce wear. The inserts are also easily and inexpensively replaced without tools.
More grip's always better.
Special rubber is applied to the bar ends and
CIC release to give the surface even more grip when wet.
More than just a bag.
The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3 Pro bar when you're on the road. Accessories, tools, spare parts, line extensions, and optional loops can be stored in the bag's compartments. The mesh insert on the back guarantees proper ventilation. Fold it away or hang it up in a visible spot, so you don't forget it.
HIGH-QUALITY RAW MATERIALS
A bar is only as good as the quality of its parts and processes.
We use thermoplastics primarily used for the production of precision parts using the injection molding process. The colorless, semi-crystalline polymers are characterized by extreme rigidity, low frictional resistance, and amazing dimensional stability.
Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. This gives titanium the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. Plus, titanium is impervious to salt. For these reasons, we've used titanium for the control bar truss, as well as the quick release and bar end grub screws.
Marine-grade A4 stainless steel is used for the remaining metal components. The higher proportion of molybdenum minimizes corrosion and delivers years of reliable performance.
Only the best stuff goes into every Sensor 3 Pro.
The small loop comes standard on the Sensor 3 Pro and is designed for freeriders and freestylers who mostly ride hooked. The smaller loop size also lowers the adjuster height, which benefits shorter riders. An elasticized chicken stick is easily manipulated to make hooking in faster. After hooking in, the chicken stick can be passed through the harness hook to avoid unintentional unhooking.
The standard loop Sensor 3 is delivered with a triple ring. A combo ring is included for wakestyle use only. All images on this page show the combo ring.
The Rope Slider loop is our recommended solution for wave and foil riders (who use a rope harness). Its compact design brings the bar closer to the body and improves lateral movement without annoying harness slippage. The Rope Slider is only intended for use with a sliding rope spreader bar. The metal surface of the loop is finely ground by hand to reduce friction and wear on the spreader bar rope. The safety ring can be attached in semi-suicide mode. This method keeps the leash's carabiner at the same level of the quick release and out of the way.
Radical wakestylers, freestylers, and unhooked kiters will prefer our largest available chickenloop. Its size makes unhooking and hooking back in easy and intuitive. Naturally, the distance to the adjuster increases, so you should keep that in mind. To prevent unintentional unhooking, use the chicken stick and when you don't need it, simply move it outside the loop where it won't get in the way.
The Sensor 3 Wake is set up with the combo ring. Unhook and hook back in like never before.
PRO LEASH 3
Radical kiter or wakestyler? The Pro Leash 3 is for you. Its length enables comfortable passes without the "straitjacket" feel. A new swivel guarantees smooth spinning and a generous, protective neoprene sleeve over the carabiner prevents unintentional release.
Please note that connecting your leash to the back of your harness makes it more difficult to release than our standard leash. Do not select this option if you ride hooked in.
