Core Nexus 2 Kite
The secret behind the Nexus’ versatility is its highly refined three strut Future-C shape. It combines the proven surf profile of the Section with the progressive sportiness of the GTS. It loves to turn and drift down-the-line with intuitive control. Be it hard cutbacks or sublime downwinders, the Nexus 2 will excite your senses.

Lean back, relax and indulge in the beauty that Mother Nature has in store for you. And be captivated by the many sides of the Nexus 2!
RADICAL REACTION TIPS
For catlike reflexes on monsters. We fine-tuned the Nexus’ leading edge profile (especially between the bridle and steering lines) to provide added confidence-inspiring reflexes, agility and directional control in waves of all sizes.
3 STRUT LIGHT FRAME
Three strut greatness. They initiate turns faster than similar five strut designs which is an important consideration in waves. Our three strut frames save weight, deliver better lightwind balance, and improve drifting. Three strut perfection. Strong. Stable. And light.
EXOTEX® LIGHT STRUTS NEW!
No-stretch ExoTex Light replaces ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron in the struts. The new Dacron incorporates a re-engineered radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that reduces mass by approximately 10%. While ExoTex is used for the leading edge, the new ExoTex Light struts improve the Nexus 2’s drifting and turning speed – important attributes for freestylers and wave riders.
EXOTEX® ULTRA RIGID DACRON
The benchmark for performance Dacron. No-stretch ExoTex Dacron incorporates a unique radial reinforcing thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables higher pressure airframes with smaller diameters. ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by substantially increasing tube strength and rigidity despite reducing diameters. How can you tell? Look at the radial seams on our leading edge. Do you see any seam bulges that disturb airflow? Not anymore. Instead, expect smooth airflow, snappy turns, and endless smiles on your new Nexus 2.
CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY
Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry-leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.
The Nexus 2 relies on our proven Future-C shape. The moderate aspect ratio shape delivers smooth and controllable turns with an unmistakable “on-center” feel. Try a Future-C kite, and you’ll never go back.
Custom fit your Nexus to your riding style. Start by selecting your favorite CIT mode on the leading edge bridle connection points. The wave mode makes the kite turn faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar making foot changes a snap. The freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. The kite comes out of the bag in allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime.
Complete your personalization by adjusting the steering line connection points to set turning speed and bar pressure. But don’t worry, the kite comes ready to fly in the most common settings.
The maximum camber is shifted further back, and its aspect ratio is lowered (that means it’s a little fatter) to improve drifting. Give it gas, and the Nexus comes alive! The surf profile also improves wave riding in onshore winds as this wing shape loves to go upwind and not backstall when riding down the wave
ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM
Short and sweet. The Nexus’ super short bridle system improves feedback, so you better feel your kite’s position. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.
A quick relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave that is about to eat your kite. We designed the kite to find its relaunch position in a jiffy. Wave riders will appreciate how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug especially when time is of the essence.
SPEED VALVE 2
No special hose adapter needed here! The Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump effort. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.
SPEED PUMP SYSTEM
Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and strut valves allow uninhibited air flow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)
Anti-wear patches where you need them most. Extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut tips give another level of protection from perfectly placed beach hazards.
SENSOR BAR READY
The Nexus is optimized for CORE’s ultralight Sensor bar system. They feature precise kite control, unmatched safety, and uncluttered simplicity.
