Core Sensor 3 Bar & Lines
PERFECTION THROUGH SIMPLICITY Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the ultra-light Sensor 3 – a legendary control bar with groundbreaking features.
FEEL. No gimmicks. No unnecessary features. The Sensor 3's elemental design delivers superlative feel and comfort.
TITANIUM CORE Super light and strong. The integrated titanium truss ensures our twin auto-untwist center lines that pass through the center of the bar do not affect the bombproof rigidity of our bar. It might be overkill, but we prefer it that way. And if the center lines wear out the bar guide, replace it with a fresh one.
STEALTH WINDERS NEW! No divots, sharp corners, or hard protruding ends on this bar. The clean, minimalistic and soft bar ends don't just look fantastic but are super grippable. After your fun sesh, the bar ends fold open to reveal hidden line winders.
GRIPLOC NEW! The narrow, non-slip asymmetric grip is easy on the hands – even for marathon sessions. Contrasting colors provide improved left/right visual guidance. And a thin redline on the underside lets you know if the bar is reversed.
CONTROL. The whole line setup and depower system is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback, control, and fly-by-wire feel.
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. And adjust bar width (50/46.5cm) by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. We also disappeared the elastic line keepers into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
AUTO UNTWIST 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 special coating.
4:1 ADJUSTER 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 (pun intended:). And the adjuster rope features an elasticized construction which shortens and keeps the line out of your way.
CONNECT. A 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.
CIC RELEASE NEW! Safe is good. The heart of our new Core Intuitive Connect Release is our push-out and easy click-back-in quick release. The red CIC Release cap is designed to provide superior grip in emergency situations. And reconnecting the quick release is as simple as re-inserting the chickenloop end into the CIC mechanism until you hear it click in. CIC Release. Just release and click back in.
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.
LINES MADE IN GERMANY CORE tough. Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with line innovation and workmanship. They pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. Only 1.8mm thick and a breaking strength of 368 kg, the Sensor 3 lines will perform beyond your expectations.
SPLICED ENDS 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.
TECTANIUM® POWERLINES Strong and durable. The front lines from the "Y" to the chicken loop use our exclusive, low stretch, Tectanium. And we protect it with a 5.2mm, UV-stabilized, Polyether where it passes through the bar. Techno speak for really durable, self-lubricating, no pinch, depower lines. The virtually frictionless, depower/safety lines are more aerodynamic, provide better feedback, and are more comfortable between the fingers. Just wait till you try it. You'll see.
ANTI-SLIP COATING 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.
MULTIBAG More than just a bag. The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3 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 the Sensor 3.
