Core Era Review

Sizes Available: 134×40, 136×40.5, 138×41, 142×42, 146×44, 152×48

The Core Era introduces a fresh perspective to the twintip lineup, designed to elevate the freeriding experience for kitesurfers across all skill levels. Emphasizing comfort, accessibility, and sustainable design, the Era transforms the riding experience into an effortlessly enjoyable pursuit, perfect for both newcomers to the sport and seasoned riders looking to enhance their freeride capabilities.

Likes

Kitesurfing Magazine’s test team was thoroughly impressed by the Era’s performance. The board offers a smooth ride, effectively dampening chop, and excels at pushing upwind efficiently. Its rounded outline and balanced grip control facilitate smooth carving turns, making transitions from heel to toe side seamless and intuitive.

The Era’s design, incorporating eco-friendly basalt fabric and Greenpoxy® resin, sets a new standard in eco-conscious board manufacturing without compromising on performance. The unique parabolic outline and optimized concave and channel arrangements provide a smooth, easy carving experience and an effortless upwind glide. The adjustable rocker curve adapts to varying conditions and rider preferences, further enhancing its versatility.

Drawbacks

While the Era is designed as an all-around freeride board, advanced riders seeking a board specifically tailored for extreme tricks or aggressive freestyle may find it less suited to those disciplines. However, its ease of use, comfort, and eco-friendly construction make it a compelling choice for a broad range of riders.

Users

The Core Era is targeted at freeriders of all levels, particularly those who value ease of use, comfort, and environmental sustainability in their gear. Beginners will appreciate the board’s forgiving nature and easy upwind performance, while intermediate and advanced riders will enjoy the smooth ride, responsive handling, and versatility in a variety of conditions. Whether you’re exploring new techniques or simply enjoying a leisurely session, the Era offers a well-rounded, satisfying ride that can adapt to your evolving style and skills.
