The CoreTex of the new XR3 is available only since June 18th and the magazine state they have been testing it since 6 months??? I think they refer to the regular material of the XR2. Interesting anyway, thanks for sharing this.heinzbush wrote:not sure if that was discussed already on the forum...
the German kite mag tested the canopy materials in their latest issue. They tested the 2013 materials (from what I can see on the pics), but afaik most of the brands upgraded it for the 2014 kites... For Core they used the XR3 material (Core Tex).
They took new kites to test, rode them for 6 months and then tested them again. I put the results in the charts attached.
...would have been nice to see how Cabs own material performs, but they didn't test it.

If it was not so expensive I would definitely try it. It would be nice for light wind days if you happen to drop your kite in the water.
