CORE Kiteboarding presents their second generation, all-carbon freestyle boards. These boards are lighter, stronger and more refined than ever. Don’t miss out, these new designs are 300 grams lighter, making them more responsive and explosive. Read all about these new decks from CORE Kiteboarding, below.

The kiteboarding powerhouse on the sunny island of Fehmarn releases the next generation of its freestyle bestsellers. Fans of the CORE Bolt and Choice will appreciate the innovative refinements to the fabulous originals. Although both boards share CORE’s hi-tech board construction technology, they are designed for two distinct target markets. Whereas the Choice is a board for freestylists that enjoy both straps and the occasional boot session, the boot-only Bolt is designed strictly for the hardcore wakestyle market.

The second generation boards feature a new CNC milling and production process that extends the Paulownia wood core closer to the board edges to reduce weight and increase reflexivity. The improved channels and Vario Rails give you the grip and control you need with or without fins. And the Bolt 2 and Choice 2 both continue to benefit from CORE’s proprietary 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave that further optimizes board torsion and dynamic longitudinal flex.

“The new boards feel alive and ready for anything,” claims CORE twintip developer, Daniel Borchert.

The new boards incorporate variable rail thickness for better control and a smoother edging. The Vario Rails, as they are known, feature a 9.5mm shaped rail profile near the center of the board that progressively reduces thickness to 3mm near the tips. The marginally wider tips, moderated rocker, and 2 new 3⁄4 length channels produce a silky smooth turning board with amazing lateral resistance, excellent speed in the lulls and never ending smiles. Like the originals, both boards carry forward their reputation for extreme durability and slider friendly bases. Whereas the Choice 2 gives you the option to use boots or straps, the Bolt 2 is strictly a boot only wakestyler with an innovative base. Ding the Bolt’s unique, snowboard inspired, Pro Fix Grind base and repair it easily with a PTEX candle.

The next gen Choice 2 is available in four sizes and may be ordered with either the Union Comfort or Union Pro Pads and Straps. Prices start at 849 EUR. And the boot ready Bolt 2 is available in three sizes from 949 EUR at an authorized CORE retailer near you.
