REAL Review

The Core Nexus 2 has been updated with a more aggressive shape and a few construction specs like the ExoTex Light Dacron struts that make it one of the most versitile kites on the market.  The Nexus is the perfect kite for someone that wants one kite for freeride, waves, foil and loops.

What We Like
  • This kite works great for a lot of different kiteboarding styles. We love the versatility of the Nexus 2.  Everyone that rides it, has only good things to say about it. 
  • The crazy stability overhead makes it really easy to handle for beginners or in gusty conditions.
  • When you jump the Nexus 2, it has a very predictable bell curve jump that allows your progression to go through the roof.
  • The increased wing tip size significantly improved how this kite loops. The Nexus 2 pulls through the loop and will catch you when it goes overhead. It loops so well that one of the core team riders used it at King of the Air.
  • The lighter weight struts make the Nexus drift noticeably better for kite surfing and foiling.
  • The CIT knots on the LE were changed to loops which keeps the bridle from getting caught on self launches or water relaunches.  
  • The Nexus 2 LW has increased low end power and the full wing tip make it a fast turning performance big kite.
  • Core’s construction is second to none.  The finish work and quality of materials make these kites last 4x any other kite brand in the REAL Rental Shop.
What We Don't Like
  • The Nexus 2 is a little lost in Core’s kite line up.  It improved as a surf kite, foil kite, looping kite and jumping kite.  It came closer to the XR6, GTS6, Xlite and Section so some customers are confused what to get.  We tell our customers that the Nexus 2 is right for you if it is your first kite or you want one kite that does it all.
Why you want the Core Nexus 2:
  • The Core Nexus 2 is a high performance multi sport kite that a beginner can buy and progress on. The easy to ride attributes make this kite a great set up for progressing on for any level of kiteboarder.
