CORE XR7 Kite

XR7 - A ticket to the Moon

Had my first session on my new 9m. It performed way above my expectations. The fit and finish are next level. I come from Cabrinha SB's and this thing is smoother has more hang time and everything just feels right. I was instantly confident on it. No joke first jump was a new PR. Loops smoothly, intuitive, and feels like a dream. I felt like a had a few more seconds in the air with this thing. Highly recommend if you are going for Big Air riding. Thanks BAK crew!!!

Designs of kiters, for kiters and by kiters

I been wearing this T for the past couple months and several washes later, there is no pilling or any sign of wear on the print which happens with a lot of t-shirts! I adore the fact that the design is a kiter we all know at a place we all know doing a trick we all know (but can't do... yet). And proceeds from the T-shirt go to support kiters. I love when people ask about the design and it gives me a chance to spread the love about the sport I'm so passionate about. Get one, or two... you will love these T-shirts!

Functional & Fashionable, You Get Both!

Who knew you could look good and be totally functional? I got this rash guard and was skeptical about kiting with it because it's so cool looking and didn't want to wreck it... but my vanity got the better of me! So, I went out styling my new BAKL rash guard and at the end of an 8 hour session with plenty of crashes, to test the durability of course ;) ... I was pleasantly surprised how robust the material is! It's now seen a dozen sessions and one slide down an embankment (don't ask) and it still looks new! As far as sizing goes, I would recommend going a size up if you plan to wear over a wetsuit.

Top kite

I got my kite delivered to my door, smoothly and quickly, really good service! The kite is so light! First time out I loved how the XR7 12m worked in light winds. Me and some foil kites were boosting while others with 12 or 13 had to work their kites just to stay afloat. Now after a few sessions in more wind I found the XR7 more responsive and nippier in the turns than the XR6. But still rock steady in the air. My only quality concern is that there was quite a few long white thread ends from the stitching hanging out here and there that I had to cut off. I just suppose it was a new-kite thing and that the stiching wont start ripping..

Brilliant service, great communication through WhatsApp, quick and efficient responses. Enthusiastic in solving issues (PayPal payments) and willing to help when we needed kite as soon as possible because of holidays. Only BAK had the new XR7 in stock ready to send that time. Shipment was fast and took as long as BAK said.
I have never liked to ride a big kites because they were rough in motion until I bought 13.5m XR7. It reacts really quickly and turns easily as for the big kite, better than my previous 12m other brands kites. The hang time is outstanding, landing is super long and soft. The wind range is surprisingly wide, now I have a lot of fun when the wind is light, so I can ride more often. I can feel the innovative construction and high quality. That is definitely the kite that will take me to the next level. Supporting riders is fantastic idea!

Best kite you can buy if you like Big Air and Old School

I own a 8m and 13.5m XR6, so I was a fan before as the XR range finally allowed me to jump with confidence as I knew I wouldn't just fall from the sky and fuck my feet as it happened before with other freeride kites from top brands like Eleveight and Cabrinha. This allowed me to move from simple jumps to +10m jumps and doing all kinds of front rolls and backrolls.

Now I bought a 10m XR7 after owning 9m and 10m freeride and big air kites from other brands with which I wasn't happy as they weren't as forgiving and powerful as the XR. Its range has an incredible fit in my quiver, whereas with my other 9m and 10m I always felt over or underpowered for that size. And it has all the great things about an XR and more. It has a great grunt and pulls you up in the jumps very fast, while allowing to fly down smoothly. And while learning how to do kiteloops the 10m XR7 feels not that differently than the 8m XR6!

I thought all the kite pumps were the same

But they are not. Even though most are made in a couple of factories around the world, I had one one with this same design from another top kite brand but the pressure gauge broke after a couple of weeks and then the single/double stroke switch stopped working too. I couldn't pump any kite larger than 12sqm in less than 6-7 minutes and was very tired after. With the Core pump I can ready my 13.5m XR6 in 2-3 minutes without a sweat!

Expensive, but worth it.

After reviewing many bars, I decided to try out Core's Sensor 3, as the Sensor 2 has the old QR which can be problematic. That's solved on this one, but that should be a given. What's great about this bar is the set of lines which allow you to kite with 18m, 20m, 22m, and 24m lines without an hassle. It is also super light yet sturdy. And you need need to worry about twisting your central lines ever again with it, something which is still lacking from other expensive bars from top kite brands.

Zero to Hero

I had the opportunity to test an older XR kite and fell in love with the handling and confidence it gave me to push myself. So I took the leap of faith and I ordered the XR7 from BAK. Mike was very generous with his time & expertise and personally guided me through my order. Top service!

Every purchase supports BAK team riders of your choice. This personal touch makes me feel a part of the growth of our sport.

As for the kite, the XR7 became a game changer for me. My second session I pulled my first frontroll kiteloops... from zero to hero... I never even tried normal powered kiteloops before this... The kite is so intuitive that I simply trust it will be where I feel when I am on my back in the blind during the rotation.

Jumps are so much fun with the XR7. This kite allows intermediate kiters like myself to launch some decent jumps without a lot of technical perfection. It could make me lazy but actually it tempted me to try harder on the technical aspects to achieve better jumps.

Highly recommend this kite and BAK is the place to get it!!!

Shipped/Received within days

Thanks for the quick service! After testing the new XR7 in Tarifa I ordered one via BAK, it arrived even before I reached home!! Super happy with BAK service! Thanks a lot

Epic bar

These bars are sold out almost everywhere, but i received mine quick. What i like most about is the new coating, it feels very nice when i'm on the water and enjoying what i like most. Also to mention, the big air kite team was very helpful when i had questions regarding the bar.

Even better than the XR6

Loops better, catches faster and I believe it will jump higher

To be honest, I don't even want to ride my XR6 anymore

After riding the kite I think there are three biggest changes that has made the XR7 even more amazing. - it is a faster kite, you can feel it while looping as it goes around faster and with more power - it is easier to jump higher. I have realized that right now it’s way easier to edge up wind before the take off meaning that it is easier to jump more vertical rather than horizontal. That also makes it easier to loop bigger kites like 9 and 10m - lastly the downloops are way liftier. It's just like a helicopter. You will ALYWAYS be lifted up. This kite is like magic. I don’t even want to ride my Xr6 any more
