Super light and strong.
The integrated titanium truss ensures our twin auto-untwist center lines that pass through the center of the bar do not affect the bombproof rigidity of our bar. It might be overkill, but we prefer it that way. And if the center lines wear out the bar guide, replace it with a fresh one.
STEALTH WINDERS NEW!
No divots, sharp corners, or hard protruding ends on this bar.
The clean, minimalistic and soft bar ends don’t just look fantastic but are super grippable. After your fun sesh, the bar ends fold open to reveal hidden line winders.
The whole line setup and depower system is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback, control, and fly-by-wire feel.
LIVE WIRE NEW!
Feel more “connected” to your kite with floaters that don’t interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. And adjust bar width (50/46.5cm) by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. We also disappeared the elastic line keepers into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
Twisted lines are a thing of the past.
Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3 bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet “between the fingers” comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and special coating.
A bar’s safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3’s new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.
SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)
CORE’s exclusive hybrid system combines the advantages of a single front line, double front line, and fifth line safety. When deployed, it blows out the front line (below the “Y”) eliminating pull. At the same time, a pulley system shortens the second front line (above the “Y”) which moves the kite to a stable and safe relaunch position.
SHORT SAFETY LEASH
Extra short is extra safe.
A short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our 50cm leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It’s easier to see or grab, and it won’t tangle. If, on the other hand, you see yourself unhooking in the future, we have a Pro Leash for you.
THE CORE ADVANTAGE
LINES MADE IN GERMANY
Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with line innovation and workmanship. They pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. Only 1.8mm thick and a breaking strength of 368 kg, the Sensor 3 lines will perform beyond your expectations.
For a better hold.
We splice all our ends before sewing for a more permanent hold. It’s a little more work, but this method guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics.
REPLACEABLE BAR INSERTS
Simple and replaceable.
Bar inserts that surround the depower lines lubricate them as they pass through the bar to reduce wear. The inserts are also easily and inexpensively replaced without tools.
Strong and durable.
The front lines from the “Y” to the chicken loop use our exclusive, low stretch, Tectanium. And we protect it with a 5.2mm, UV-stabilized, Polyether where it passes through the bar. Techno speak for really durable, self-lubricating, no pinch, depower lines. This game e 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.
More grip’s always better.
Special rubber is applied to the bar ends and CIC release
to give the surface even more grip when wet.
More than just a bag.
The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3 bar when you’re on the road. Accessories, tools, spare parts, line extensions, and optional loops can be stored in the bag’s compartments. The mesh insert on the back guarantees proper ventilation. Fold it away or hang it up in a visible spot, so you don’t forget it.
HIGH-QUALITY RAW MATERIALS
A bar is only as good as the quality of its parts and processes.
We use thermoplastics primarily used for the production of precision parts using the injection molding process. The colorless, semi-crystalline polymers are characterized by extreme rigidity, low frictional resistance, and amazing dimensional stability.
Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. This gives titanium the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. Plus, titanium is impervious to salt. For these reasons, we’ve used titanium for the control bar truss, as well as the quick release and bar end grub screws.
Marine-grade A4 stainless steel is used for the remaining metal components. The higher proportion of molybdenum minimizes corrosion and delivers years of reliable performance.
Only the best stuff goes into the Sensor 3.
