The no compromise, no nonsense, C-kite. For those adrenaline pumping unhooked moves you keep on trying. We say...more power to you. And now, 10 years after launching the fabled C-kite, known as the Carved Unit, we give you the power to master your inner freestyle and wakestyle ninjas with the new CORE Impact.
With slightly longer tips than the GTS3, the Impact retains a more classical C-shape. As such, expect a consistent, uniform pull through your rotations and transitions so you can focus on your moves and not the kite's.
Real C-kites have square wingtips. Connecting lines directly to the square wingtip provides the direct connection you demand and the "slack lining" you expect from a true C-kite.
5 LINE SETUP
No bridle or pulleys here. Just simple and direct line connections to the kite. Feel where your kite is when you are blind.
Made in Germany. 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.
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.
5 STRUT FRAME
The classic, bombproof, 5 strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the Impact design to control and stabilize the kite during kite rotations. Stability creates predictable kite behavior when you need it most. Don't compromise. Go with 5.
ACTIVE 5TH LINE SAFETY
Classic 5th line safety with a bonus. The Impact's 5th line and safety line always remain perfectly tensioned regardless of the trim adjuster cleat setting. For a perfect flight profile.
CUSTOM TRIM SYSTEM
The Impact has 3 backline and 3 frontline attachment points to customize your bar pressure and kite flying style.
Get more out of your freestyle session. With its wide tips and small diameter front tube, the Impact releases better from the water than you would think. One pull on the steering line is all you need to get the Impact flying again so you can spend more time mastering your latest handle passes.
SENSOR BAR READY
Although the Impact is a 5 line kite, it is still fully compatible with the Sensor 2 or the titanium cored Sensor Pro bar which feature precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. The Impact comes with a 5th line conversion kit for any Sensor 2 or Pro bar. The conversion is simple and takes no time at all. The Impact is not compatible with older 4 line CORE bars, though.
Anti-wear patches where you need them.
