Carbon Unibody bar with Tectanium lines S-System
210G CARBON FIBER BAR
CARBON FIBER BAR
Yes, even lighter than our Unibody bar. Our carbon fiber bar reduces the already low weight to an unimaginable 200g. With the same breaking strength, the titanium reinforced, carbon bar is even stiffer than the Sensor 2S bar. Its low mass and low bar-end height reduces inertia and optimizes leverage. For perfect balance, control and response.
FULL TECTANIUM® LINES
Exclusively developed for CORE by Liros, the market leader in specialized aeronautical and sail cordage. The virtually tangle-free, no stretch, Tectanium center and steering lines are 400% more resistant to elongation and feature an unbelievable 50% greater breaking strength. To cap things off, the lines are 10% thinner and, therefore, more aerodynamic.
- 10 percent lighter and thinner
- 50 percent higher break load
- 400 percent higher stretch resistance
Perfect balance. The stainless steel connection between the Rotor QR and the depower lines is shaped to provide more symmetric pulling forces on the lines. S-Neck: Smoother auto untwist. Zero unwanted leverage. Perfectly symmetric pulling forces. Now that’s smart.
TECTANIUM S-SLIDE / DEPOWER LINES
The Sensor 2S replaces the front lines from the “Y” to the chicken loop with our exclusive, no stretch, Tectanium. And we protect it with a 5.2mm, UV-stabilized, Polyether where it passes through the bar. Techno speak for a really durable, self-lubricating, no pinch, depower line. The new, virtually frictionless, depower/safety lines are more aerodynamic, provide better feedback, and are more comfortable between the fingers. Just wait till you try it. You’ll see.
TECTANIUM® VARIO LINES
Tectanium Vario lines come standard. With the base 18m lines and 2 extensions, you can fly your Sensor 2S Pro bar with 18, 20, 22, or 24m line lengths. Liros’ innovative emulsion (protective coating) process shields your Tectanium lines against abrasion, dirt and UV radiation better than ever. Trust Tectanium.
Leave it to CORE to design the strongest bar ever. We engineered an internal, aircraft quality, grade 5 titanium alloy truss to reinforce the bar. The titanium’s featherweight rigidity gives, in part, the Sensor 2S Pro’s direct feel. And it permits a reduced diameter, no cramp, grip.
DURABLE 24 METER LINES
Made in Germany quality. Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with innovation and workmanship. For example, they pre-stretch our lines under heat. Only 1.8mm thick and sporting 50% greater breaking strength, the Sensor 2S Pro lines will perform beyond your expectations. A small but important detail relates to how we finish our line end loops. We don’t simply fold over the line and stitch it up. No, that’s cheating. We braid the loop before stitching and finishing for a safer, stronger, and more aerodynamic connection.
SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)
Exclusive to CORE. When the Rotor quick release is activated, the kite will fully depower and come to rest in a ‘drift launch-ready’ position (nose to wind) until you are ready. The benefits here are twofold. The kite stays put and does not want to relaunch into the sky. And there is no pull on the lines while the kite is in ‘drift launch-ready’ position simplifying the process of re-engaging the Rotor quick release. So how does SSF work and why does the kite not ‘turtle’ and stay in the air? The answer is that the kite does not flag out on one front line or equally on 2 front lines. SSF releases 100% of the back lines and flags the kite mainly on one front line. But sufficient tension remains on the other front line to steer the kite down. So in effect, it is the slight (unequal) tension on the other front line that prevents the kite from turtling and remaining sky bound.
Easy, one line, trim adjustment for those who prefer simplicity. Our clam cleat design reduces pulling effort by 25% which is noticeable in powered conditions.
ROTOR QUICK RELEASE
The only 2-way quick release you do not have to think about. Releasing the kite is as simple as turning the mechanism in either direction for a simple, safe and intuitive process. It’s well known that more torque can be generated twisting than pushing or pulling. Unlike conventional systems, our quick release does not require you to overcome the flow of water. The Rotor sets the standard for ease of use, safety, and performance.
Another advantage of the Rotor over conventional push/pull systems is size. The Rotor is shorter, lighter and more compact than those other systems. All things being equal, a shorter Rotor permits a closer trim adjuster location. And who would not want to have a shorter reach to the trim adjuster?
Functional simplicity. Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 2 bar. A below the bar swivel unravels the front lines when the bar is pulled in. The days of manually spinning the front line swivel are over. Welcome to the era of auto untwist!
A small but important detail relates to how we finish our line end loops. We don’t simply fold over the line and stitch it up. No, that’s cheating. We braid the loop before stitching and finishing for a safer, stronger, and more aerodynamic connection.
One bar covers all our kite sizes. From 4 to 19m! Nice. The Sensor 2 bar width is adjustable from 46cm to 52cm by moving one knot. The best design ideas are the simple ones. Switching widths is as easy as 1. Pull back the floater exposing the bar end leader. 2. Undo larks head knot on the back line where it attaches to the bar leader. 3. Pull on the opposite bar leader knot and reconnect larks head. Simple. And unbreakable.
SHORT SAFETY LEASH
Extra short is extra safe. The short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our short, 50cm long, leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It is easier to see or grab and it won’t tangle like longer leashes might. If you do not see unhooked freestyle in your future, then protect yourself with a short leash.
