CORE XR5 LW Size 17


Stellar. Lightwind. Performance.

Meet the new lightwind performance freerider, the XR5 LW. With all the power and range of the legendary XR5 yet is noticeably lighter. Proud owners will be collecting many first-on-the-water trophies and will enjoy cruising in cleaner air upwind from the pack. So how do we do it? The XR5 LW’s DNA is packed with innovative technology like ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron and Intelligent Arc that supercharges its performance. CORE’s exclusive ExoTex Dacron, for example, improves airflow and flight stability. And Intelligent Arc adds massive wind range. Appreciable weight reduction is achieved with CORE’s exclusive CoreTex Light canopy fabric, a ripstop fabric with a remarkable strength to weight ratio. We could go on, but we prefer that you find out for yourself how stellar the new XR5 LW performs.
