Core XLite 2 Kite

The Specialized Series XLITE 2 is a one-strut foil kite that's tuned to perfection. By fusing the power of Core's Nexus allrounder and the superlative drifting from Core's unbeatable Section wave kite they created a foiling machine that's an honest 30% lighter than the already light Nexus. The new CoreTex 2.0 canopy features massively improved tear resistance in both directions, slight weight savings, and a new emulsion that improves flight, durability, and longevity. The ExoTex Light on the struts and leading edge is super tough yet lighter than Core's industry-leading airframe material. Thinner, anti-snag bridles further reduce weight and improve water relaunching.

The canopy material receives a major upgrade that adds more muscle and durability -a big plus- for single strut kites. Core added 2 and 3-meter sizes for slicing up the Gorge and a 13.5m for those super-light summer breezes. Heavily modified bridle, panels, and shape accommodate the new smaller sizes to deliver the ultimate foiling experience.
