Hang loose and ride knee highs like they're overheads. Test your limits on those really big days. Or, just chill and cruise on your trusty surfboard, twintip or skimboard. Without fussing about your kite or the wind. Because you know the new CORE Free is there for you. With its mad surf skills, smooth air-style, and signature CORE ride-ability, you may suspect your new kite has super powers. And we think so too.

This 3 strut, delta bow inspired design lets you be you. A kite that gives you the freedom to surf, play or shred. In the waves. Or on the slick. With the comfort of your favorite sneakers. The precision of an F-15. And waterstarts of a kite half its size. Your first choice for short sessions, wicked weekends or your next round the world adventure. Express yourself with CORE's newest addition to its legendary Universal+ Series of high performance all-rounders. And experience the awesomeness of this wave, freeride, and hooked-in style master.


  • 3 Strut Light Frame
    Less is more. The Free inherits the GTS's 3 Strut Light Frame concept which promotes more twist than a similar kite with five struts. More twist initiates faster turns and bigger grins. In addition, the reduced kite weight improves slack line drifting.

  • Delta Bow Shape
    The best of both worlds. The Free is recognized by the classic concave trailing edge of a bow; the swept back wings and smaller tips of a delta shape. This magic combination maximizes depower and control for early planing; upwind performance and, of course, big air. The shape also contributes to CORE's signature precision, bar feel, relaunch-ability, and turn characteristics.

  • Intelligent Arc
    Intelligent Arc is a bridle configuration perfected on the XR series that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the Free increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheet out and the kite folds in its wings and depowers. Intelligent Arc. For precise, controllable, power and depower on demand.

  • 4 Line Setup
    Classic, clean and safe. The Free's simple 4 line rigging gets you on the water in no time and benefits from the Sensor 2 bar?s proven SSF safety. Why change something that ain't broke?

  • Ultrashort Bridle System
    Say goodbye to bridle induced bowties with our shortest bridle system ever. The new configuration improves feedback so you can better sense your kite position. For precise, tight but not overpowering, pivoty turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Say hello to the un-bowtie-able Free.

    Meet the new Sensor 2S

    An intelligent mid-cycle update to the exceptional Sensor 2. A bar, where engineering ingenuity meets minimalism; where ceramic bearings are used to eliminate friction in the auto untwist function; and where Tectanium is used to make the thinnest and most aerodynamic depower lines. Technical innovations that make the Sensor 2S bar system peerless. Sometimes, it's what you don?t see, that makes it so good. Still not good enough for you? Then, you are ready for the new Sensor 2S Pro.

    Ceramic Untwist

    Functional simplicity. Untwisting your front lines has never been easier. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 2S bar. An improved, below the bar, swivel with hi-tech ceramic bearings unravels the front lines virtually on its own or whenever the bar is pulled in. The days of manually spinning the front line swivel are over. Welcome to the Sensor 2S era of super auto untwist!

    Rotor Quick Release

    The only 2-way quick release you do not have to think about. Releasing the kite is as simple as turning the mechanism in either direction for a simple, safe and intuitive process. It?s well known that more torque can be generated twisting than pushing or pulling. Unlike conventional systems, our quick release does not require you to overcome the flow of water. The Rotor sets the standard for ease of use, safety, and performance.

    Another advantage of the Rotor over conventional push/pull systems is size. The Rotor is shorter, lighter and more compact than those other systems. All things being equal, a shorter Rotor permits a closer trim adjuster location. And who would not want to have a shorter reach to the trim adjuster?



    Perfect balance. The stainless steel connection between the Rotor QR and the depower lines is shaped to provide more symmetric pulling forces on the lines. S-Neck: Smoother auto untwist. Zero unwanted leverage. Perfectly symmetric pulling forces. Now that?s smart.

    Great Design and Build

    - 8/26/2016

    Core has a reputation for building a quality product with lots of man hours of thought put into each design aspect. The Free is no exception. This kite exceeds my expectations for a freeride all around kite with great light wind performance.
