The Core XR6
Say hello to the new XR6! The latest from Core's Universal+ Series is engineered to perform in all conditions and disciplines. It inherits the power and unbelievable wind range of the legendary XR5 while receiving weight saving and handling upgrades.
Fourteen years of development, hundreds of prototypes, and many inhospitable test sessions have gone into the XR6's signature ride. Frank Ilfrich, Core's head designer, knows how important it is not to lose the DNA that makes the XR what it is today and his team has succeeded again. The XR's linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings.
What Core Says About the Core XR6
After six generations, they've dialled in the characteristics Like prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water and in the air. With the same tread depth in the centre as the XR5, but slightly flatter on the outside. For this purpose, the Bridle connection points and Strut geometry have been revised, small but crucial adjustments allow for even more control in high end, higher airspeed and better upwind capabilities, more pop and faster spin!
The XR6 continues with Core's highly successful 5-strut, Delta Bow shape that isn't just a fan favourite; it also breaks records. Earlier this year, both Maarten Haeger und Ross-Dillon Player busted through the 30m barrier on their XR's. A feat that was previously considered impossible.
Freeride / Freestyle / Race / Wave "You decide, which style you want to ride"
Core's proven fabrics – CoreTex and ExoTex – are exclusively used on the canopy and leading edge. Lead designer, Frank Ilfrich, went over every small detail and found weight savings in the leading edge, extra speed in the canopy, and efficiency improvements to our Speed Pump System. Frank and his team modified the strut curves to extract more stability especially when powered. The additional strut rigidity (and lowend grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering.
Now, it's your turn to break some personal bests with the new XR6.
