HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE | FREESTYLE | WAVE
(Caution,) mega boosting your XR6 may require pilot oxygen.
The latest from CORE's Universal+ Series is engineered to perform in all conditions and disciplines. Like all Universal+ Series kites, the XR6 is designed to excel in one area, and for the XR6, it’s space travel. Not that space travel but the ability to go higher and further than you've ever been. Don't believe us? Ask Maarten Haeger who crushed the 30m barrier with an amazing 10+ storey high jump on his XR.
The XR's legendary linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings. After six generations, we've dialled in the characteristics most kiters are looking for. Like prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water and in the air.
However, if you plan to unhook or mega loop your Universal+ Series kite, then you should look at our GTS5. And if you're spending more time on a surfboard than a twintip, you should consider CORE's newest Universal+ Series kite, the Nexus.
The XR6 comes with an amazing backpack, manual, line extensions and a repair kit.

It's T minus 3 and you've lined up the perfect ramp in the distance. It's still a way off yet the anticipation of liftoff is intoxicating. The stars line up, your timing is perfect and you pull hard on your backhand. Where will your XR6 take you? For some, well into the troposphere. And for others, the XR6 will deliver a never-ending rocket ride.
As a member of the Universal+ Series of kites, the XR6 is engineered to perform in all conditions and disciplines. Especially the tricky winds typically found on big inland lakes and near complicated shorelines. Like all Universal+ Series kites, the XR6 is designed to excel in one area, and for the XR6, that’s interstellar travel. Don't believe us? Ask Maarten Haeger and Ross-Dillon Player who recently went interstellar sending their XRs. Maarten's vacation turned surreal when he smashed the 30m barrier with an amazing 10 storey high jump on January 2nd, 2019. Now, it's your turn to break some personal bests with the new XR6.
The XR's legendary linear response delivers effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings. But don’t take our word.

DELTA BOW SHAPE
The XR6 incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept back wings of a delta kite. Our airfoil is engineered to rip upwind when underpowered, boost bigger on demand and get you planing first! Our latest design benefits from an optimized wing profile shape near the maximum chord to add a little more speed.
5 STRUT FRAME
The bombproof, five strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the XR6 design to stabilize the additional power created by our Intelligent Arc system. Our designer modified the strut curves to extract more stability especially when powered. The noticeable improvement in strut rigidity required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering.
FASTER TURNING SPEED
Small moves in bridle attachment points have a huge impact on any kite's performance. We've been experimenting with these points on just about every prototype to improve handling while maintaining its signature character. And we think we've done it again.
Start by selecting your favorite CIT mode on the leading edge bridle connection points. The wave mode makes the kite turn faster and increases depower. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar. The freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. The kite comes out of the bag in allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and superb hangtime.
