Information About The 2013 Core Riot XR3 LW Kitesurfing Kite
With the new Riot XR3 LW CORE presents a worthy successor to the Riot XR2 LW.
The LW directly benefits from the new developments of its little brother, the Riot XR3: The new Short Bridle System allows for a very direct bar feeling and dynamic feedback when steering the kite. This enables real kite loops, which were previously unheard of during light wind sessions.
The constant focus on light wind build methods gives the Riot XR3 LW its performance abilities in light wind conditions. As an example we use thinner tubes and CoreTex® Light-Fabric in our production. Despite being as light as a feather the sophisticated construction allows the kite to hold its own when the wind picks up.
Thanks to its dynamic properties, the Riot XR3 LW makes you feel as if you were flying a noticeably smaller kite, whilst topping it off by being an absolute Hang-time Machine.
LW For Lightwind
All the XR3 performance and comfort characteristics have been added to the XR3 LW. Special emphasis has been placed on agility, which allows for dynamic riding in the light-wind sizes. This allows the new “LW” to accelerate easily with tight figure eights.
With the Riot XR3 LW you will experience dreamy light-wind session on glassy water, with massive power on demand for endless hang time and the agility for easy kiteloops.
All of this with the lightest breeze and the least amount of power required.
Agility For Easy Kiteloops
We maintain that the new Riot XR3 LW is not only the lightest light-wind tube kite on the market, but is also the only kite of its size which is easily able to do kiteloops.
The massive (and smooth) power delivery allows for huge airs and unmatched hang time in even the lightest winds.
All of this is achieved without compromising on the legendary Riot XR3 comfort. Of course the LW kites also include the Speed Valve, Speed Pump System and the CORE Intelligent Trim System.
Robust Lightweight Construction
The weight of the kite could, thanks to a new technique, be noticeably reduced; naturally without compromising on the typical CORE build quality. CORE guarantees that there was no skimping on the hard-wearing Dacron fabric or robust Kevlar at vital points on the kite.
With the Riot XR3 LW there is no need to leave the water when the wind exceeds 15 knots, for fear of having the seams fly past your ears. This quality is especially important for riders who want to use their light-wind kite in increasing winds or who require a bit more lift from the kite.
