For some, it’s all about the waves. A three dimensional playground to explore and experiment on. And to get the most out of your wave session, we’ve built the Section.
A purebred wave kite with 3 struts, lightweight construction, perfect balance and super quick reflexes. A kite that stays put while you ride those super fast waves. A kite that doesn’t stall out when you’re toeside on a wind driven 10 footer. A kite for all you strapped and strapless wave junkies that will drive hours for that magical wave session.You know who you are. You live for waves. Nothing else matters. We made the new core section just for you. A dedicated wave kite for down-the-liners. Off-the-lippers. And in-the-tubers. The no compromise, 3 strut, super fast, park-and-forget-about-it wave kite. So, for you hardcore wave junkies, allow us to show you what we packed into the ultimate wave kite.
ULTRALIGHT 3 STRUT FRAME
Three struts is the perfect balance between flexibility and weight. The Section’s sharply reduced strut and leading edge diameter use the least Dacron of any CORE kite. This weight saving measure makes for superb balance and slack-line drifting. Three strut design. Perfect for those pivot down loops on your bottom turns.
The Section’s airfoil features a further setback maximum camber and a slightly lower aspect ratio to improve slack line drift. Give it gas, though, and the Section responds instinctively.
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.
The moderate Future-C shape delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. The Section is also marginally more open (that is, slightly ‘flatter’) than the GTS3 to promote better drifting.
RADICAL REACTION TIPS
For catlike reflexes. Leveraging our GTS3 knowhow, we finely tuned the Section’s wingtips for pure wave riding magic. In a side by side comparison, the Section’s wingtip is a tad shorter and ‘less square’ than the GTS3. The fine tuning optimizes the Section’s reflexes, agility and directional control in waves.
SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM
Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise control. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot wired to your brain.
CORE INTELLIGENT TRIM SYSTEM CIT
Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. So go ahead and play with your trim settings and find your inner wave ninja.
INSTANT AUTO RELAUNCH
Instant relaunch is critical when a wave is barreling down on your kite. The Section is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water with a quick tug when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your Section has your back.
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.
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.
SENSOR BAR READY
The Section is fully compatible with the Sensor 2 and Sensor 2S bar system which features precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. The super clean design has no bobbles to interfere with your style and the ingenious no sag flag/safety line is more aerodynamic (and looks better!).
