CORE Era 1 SN2 8275 Angely Buillot by Thomas Burblies 2000px 72dpi 1200x800 - CORE ERA. Any level. All the fun.

CORE ERA. Any level. All the fun.

CORE kicks off the season with a new addition to its twintip lineup: the Era sets the bar for innovation and sustainability. Designed for the joy of freeriding and riders of all levels, the Era transforms first rides into unforgettable experiences and unlocks advanced moves effortlessly.

The Era has been designed to ensure easy access and rapid progress in the sport. Crafted with the high quality, manufacturing and material standards firmly anchored at CORE, customers can look forward to a high-quality freeride board with a wide range of use. It complements CORE’s existing range including the high-performance twintips Fusion, Choice and Bolt. Promising the same top level, but at a lower price. With progress at its core, the Era is aimed at a broad target group and suitable for every level.

Era marks a breakthrough in eco-friendly board design

The top-tier performance and maximum durability come directly from the fabric used in the Era. The fabric is extracted from basalt – a natural volcanic effusion. Like glass fibers, basalt can be processed at high temperatures into continuous textile fibers, which boast higher tensile strength, compressive strength, and stiffness. The result? Outstanding cushioning and explosive bounce potential. This means that riders will experience a smoother and more comfortable ride. Furthermore, both energy consumption and CO2 emissions from production are significantly lower than that of glass and carbon fibers. Paired with the Greenpoxy® resin, boasting a 35 percent plant-based composition, ecological footprint the Era is significantly compared to twintips.

Smooth running and effortless upwind glide

Based on the clearly defined requirement profile that emphasizes accessibility and quick progress, the design focus was set accordingly. The concaves and channels come in a very special arrangement. Proven in flow analyses, the water currents are directed in optimized directions. Based on the “Bulbous Bow” from modern shipbuilding, the Era has been given a strikingly wide keel, which also influences the flow patterns in a targeted manner and reduces water resistance. In addition, it effectively breaks the surface tension of the water, which contributes to superior handling, especially in chop. The curved shape of the channels creates a slight Venturi effect and promotes speed. This increases the water pressure in the direction of the tips and optimizes gliding and upwind characteristics.

Playfully easy carving and edging

The Era’s unique parabolic outline is a game-changer in kitesurfing design. The deliberately slimmed tip width ensures effortless handling while generating a harmonious ride experience with unmatched grip during gliding jibes and turns. Compared to Fusion and Choice models, the Era demands only basic rider skills, thanks to its slightly smaller tip width. Plus, the concave at the board’s end enhances edge grip while adding a touch of flair with a subtle spray effect.

Adjustable rocker curve

For the optimal setup, the Era has three rocker lines matched to the board size. At the same time, the concept of the Vee rocker was retained and refined accordingly. The bend is most pronounced in the center of the board and decreases towards the tips. Due to the maximum bend in the center, the board is fast and protrudes far enough out of the water to minimize splashing water and eliminate fin catching.
