R 15,350.00

PURE C-KITE

Unadulterated and pure perfection. Squared tips and bridleless. A dedicated freestyle/wakestyle machine with an extremely deep C-shape. For the most controllable, slack-able, freestyle kite possible.

UNHOOKED PRECISION

  • The no compromise, no nonsense, C-kite. For those adrenaline pumping unhooked moves you keep on trying.
  • We say ... more power to you. And now, ten years after launching the fabled C-kite, known as the Carved Unit, we give you the ower to master your inner freestyle and wakestyle ninjas with the new CORE Impact.

Kite includes a Active 5th line conversion kit, custom backpack, manual and repair kit as well as a Sensor 2 Bar.

KITE TECH

DEEP-C SHAPE:

  • With slightly longer tips than the GTS3, the Impact retains a more classical C-shape.
  • As such, expect a consistent, uniform pull through your rotations and transitions so you can focus on your moves and not the kite’s.

    CLASSIC-C TIPS:

    • Real C-kites have square wingtips.
    • Connecting lines directly to the square wingtip provides the direct connection you demand and the “slack lining” you expect from a true C-kite.

    5 LINE SETUP:

    • No bridle or pulleys here.
    • Just simple and direct line connections to the kite. Feel where your kite is when you are blind.

    EXOTEX® DACRON:

    • Made in Germany.
    • Exceptionally strong.
    • ExoTex Dacron incorporates a new asymmetrical weave and emulsion (protective coating) process.
    • The stronger fabric improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters.
    • Despite reducing strut diameters, our new ExoTex Dacron improves kite stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback.

    CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP:

    • Exclusive to CORE.
    • Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions.
    • CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation.
    • Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.

    SPEED VALVE 2:

    • No special hose adapter needed here!
    • The heavy duty Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm O.D. twist lock pump hose.
    • The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure.
    • The valve location also protects it from beach hazards.
    • This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

    SPEED PUMP SYSTEM:

    • Supersonic inflation!
    • We installed extra large speed-pump strut distribution air lines.
    • And the aerodynamic strut access points make air flow super fast into the bladders.
    • We did this all for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kite.

      5 STRUT FRAME:

      • The classic, bombproof, 5 strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the Impact design to control and stabilize the kite during kite rotations.
      • Stability creates predictable kite behavior when you need it most.
      • Don’t compromise. Go with 5.

      ACTIVE 5TH LINE SAFETY:

      • Classic 5th line safety with a bonus.
      • The Impact’s 5th line and safety line always remain perfectly tensioned regardless of the trim adjuster cleat setting.
      • For a perfect flight profile.

      CUSTOM TRIM SYSTEM:

      • The Impact has 3 backline and 3 frontline attachment points to customize your bar pressure and kite flying style.

      RAPID RELAUNCH:

      • Get more out of your freestyle session.
      • With its wide tips and small diameter front tube, the Impact releases better from the water than you would think.
      • One pull on the steering line is all you need to get the Impact flying again so you can spend more time mastering your latest handle passes.

      SENSOR BAR READY:

      • Although the Impact is a 5 line kite, it is still fully compatible with the Sensor 2 or the titanium cored Sensor Pro bar which feature precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system.
      • The Impact comes with a 5th line conversion kit for any Sensor 2 or Pro bar.
      • The conversion is simple and takes no time at all. The Impact is not compatible with older 4 line CORE bars, though.

      GRINTEX® PATCHES:

      • Anti-wear patches where you need them.
      • New, extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another level of protection from those perfectly placed beach hazards.

      6 YEAR PARTS AVAILABILITY :

      • CORE kites are built to last.
      • Our legendary durability is backed by a six year parts availability guarantee.
      • We will stock all Impact replacement parts for a minimum of six years from date of purchase.
