Core Sensor 3 Control Bar
Core Sensor 3 Control Bar
Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the ultra-light Sensor 3 – a legendary control bar with groundbreaking features. Core believe the Sensor 3 control bar system contributes much more than you would think to kite performance. And it’s what you don’t see that makes our bars so unbelievably good. The functional know-how Core hide inside and the minimalist design on the outside gives our bars the signature CORE confidence you expect. And the safety features you rely on.
One look at a Core bar is all it takes to appreciate the quality, precision, and the technology. But the real magic remains hidden. Take for example a comfortable grip that needs a thin bar. To create an indestructible bar with the lightest, narrowest grip possible required thinking outside the box. Thinking that led to a titanium truss construction. Wearing thick gloves in 8C temps isn’t a big deal with the Sensor 3 bar. The German engineered, titanium cored, Sensor 3 bar is: Simplicity in design. State-of-the-art in function and absolutely safe.
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 Core prefer it that way. And if the centre lines wear out the bar guide, you can replace it with a fresh one.
Supported Single Frontline Safety:
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.
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.
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.
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. Core also disappeared the elastic line keepers into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
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.
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.
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.
A small but important detail relates to how we finish our line end loops. Core don’t simply fold over the line and stitch it up. Core braid the loop before stitching and finishing for a safer, stronger, and more aerodynamic connection.
Tectanium Front Lines:
The front lines from the "Y" to the chicken loop use our exclusive, low stretch, Tectanium and Core 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.
Short Safety Leash:
Extra short is extra safe. The short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, the short 50cm long leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It is easier to see or grab and it won’t tangle like longer leashes might. If you do not see unhooked freestyle in your future, then protect yourself with a short leash.
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.
