Core Nexus 2 Features
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.
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.
No-stretch ExoTex Light replaces Exotex Ultra Rigid Dacron in the struts. The new Dacron incorporates a re-engineered radial thread pattern and emulsion (protectie 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.
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!
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 moves, and proides little extra grunt. In Wave mode, the kite turns faster, increases depower and doesn't pull you off you 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!
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.
