The superlative feel and comfort of the Sensor 3.
And Formula One responsiveness from its titanium trussed, carbon fiber bar.
Every part of the bar is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback and control. And now, with 100% Tectanium lines, the Sensor 3 Pro delivers the ultimate fly-by-wire feel.
TECTANIUM® VARIO LINES
Exclusively developed for CORE by Liros, the market leader in specialized aeronautical and sail cordage.
The no stretch Tectanium center and steering lines are 400% more resistant to elongation and feature an unbelievable 50% higher breaking strength. The 10% thinner lines are also noticeably more aerodynamic. Our adjustable length Tectanium lines let you fly your kite at 18, 20, 22, or 24 meters with its base 18m lines and 2 extensions.
LIVE WIRE NEW!
Feel more "connected" to your kite with floaters that don't interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. Adjust bar width by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. And the elastic line keepers disappear into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
Twisted lines are a thing of the past.
Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3 bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet "between the fingers" comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and coating of the front lines. Welcome to the era of auto untwist!
Simple. Fast. Easy. And proven.
Our block and cleat system reduces pulling forces by a factor of four, making quick adjustments in gusts a breeze. And the adjuster rope features a new elasticized construction which shortens and keeps the rope out of your way.
A kite bar's safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3's new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and, most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.
SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)
CORE's exclusive hybrid system combines the advantages of a single front line, double front line, and fifth line safety. When deployed, it blows out the front line (below the "Y"), eliminating pull. At the same time, a pulley system shortens the second front line (above the "Y"), which moves the kite to a stable and safe relaunch position.
SHORT SAFETY LEASH
Extra short is extra safe.
A short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our 50cm leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It's easier to see or grab, and it won't tangle. If, on the other hand, you see yourself unhooking in the future, we have a Pro Leash for you.
THE CORE ADVANTAGE
LINES MADE IN GERMANY
Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with innovation and workmanship. Liros pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. You'll immediately notice the quality when laying out your lines for the first time.
For a better hold.
We splice all our ends before sewing for a more permanent hold. It's a little more work, but this method guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics.
REPLACEABLE BAR INSERTS
Simple and replaceable.
Bar inserts that surround the depower lines lubricate them as they pass through the bar to reduce wear. The inserts are also easily and inexpensively replaced without tools.
More grip's always better.
Special rubber is applied to the bar ends and
CIC release to give the surface even more grip when wet.
More than just a bag.
The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3 Pro bar when you're on the road. Accessories, tools, spare parts, line extensions, and optional loops can be stored in the bag's compartments. The mesh insert on the back guarantees proper ventilation. Fold it away or hang it up in a visible spot, so you don't forget it.
HIGH-QUALITY RAW MATERIALS
A bar is only as good as the quality of its parts and processes.
We use thermoplastics primarily used for the production of precision parts using the injection molding process. The colorless, semi-crystalline polymers are characterized by extreme rigidity, low frictional resistance, and amazing dimensional stability.
Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. This gives titanium the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. Plus, titanium is impervious to salt. For these reasons, we've used titanium for the control bar truss, as well as the quick release and bar end grub screws.
Marine-grade A4 stainless steel is used for the remaining metal components. The higher proportion of molybdenum minimizes corrosion and delivers years of reliable performance.
Only the best stuff goes into every Sensor 3 Pro.
CORE LOOPS & STICK SETS
The small loop comes standard on the Sensor 3 Pro and is designed for freeriders and freestylers who mostly ride hooked. The smaller loop size also lowers the adjuster height, which benefits shorter riders. An elasticized chicken stick is easily manipulated to make hooking in faster. After hooking in, the chicken stick can be passed through the harness hook to avoid unintentional unhooking.
The standard loop Sensor 3 is delivered with a triple ring. A combo ring is included for wakestyle use only. All images on this page show the combo ring.
