XR8 - THE ULTIMATE HIGH from CORE Watersports on Vimeo.


Supreme materials for unparalleled performance. 


The Ultimate high 

The XR8 is the pinnacle when it comes to big air and unlocks unparalleled performance. With its ultra-stiff 5-strut frame in a Deltabow shape, this exceptional kite allows you to achieve breathtaking jumps and the longest hang time. Experience an unprecedented level of high ride comfort and control with the XR8's effortless and forgiving handling. 

Explosive jump forces and superior upwind performance guaranteed.

Thanks to the significantly stiffer ExoTex 2 material the kite's entire airframe has been fine-tuned and enables smaller leading edge and strut diameters. 

When we say you'll reach new heights, we mean it

the XR8 will take your kiting to extraordinary levels. You’ll find that loops are more efficient with an earlier and smoother catch. The CoreTex 2 canopy is both highly durable and has an extremely low-stretch. These two features work together to give the canopy unparalleled flight stability, power, and control 

Enjoy the thrill of big air – with the new XR8!
