Sensor-Feeling Deluxe

CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar

Sensory perfection

Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the carbon powered Sensor 3S Pro – with all the groundbreaking features of the Sensor 3S but built in a carbon fiber construction and with Tectanium Vario lines. 


Key Feature Snapshot


The superlative feel and comfort of the Sensor 3.
And Formula One responsiveness from its titanium trussed, carbon fiber bar.


Every part of the bar is meticulously designed to provide unprecedented feedback and control. With 100% Tectanium lines, the Sensor 3S Pro delivers the ultimate fly-by-wire feel.

Tectanium® Vario Lines - CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar

Tectanium® Vario Lines

Exclusively developed for CORE by Liros, the market leader in specialized aeronautical and sail cordage.

The no stretch Tectanium center and steering lines are 400% more resistant to elongation and feature an unbelievable 50% higher breaking strength. The 10% thinner lines are also noticeably more aerodynamic. Our adjustable length Tectanium lines let you fly your kite at 18, 20, 22, or 24 meters with its base 18m lines and 2 extensions.

Live Wire

Feel more "connected" to your kite with floaters that don't interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. Adjust bar width by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. And the elastic line keepers disappear into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.

Auto Untwist

Twisted lines are a thing of the past.

Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3S Pro bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet "between the fingers" comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and coating of the front lines. Welcome to the era of auto untwist!

4:1 Adjuster

Simple. Fast. Easy. And proven.

Our block and cleat system reduces pulling forces by a factor of four, making quick adjustments in gusts a breeze.  And the adjuster rope features a new elasticized construction which shortens and keeps the rope out of your way.

Varianten des Sensor 3S Pro Barsystem


The Sensor 3S Pro in the Compact version comes with a shorter bar in 45cm width. This can even be reduced to 41,5cm by swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. Wave riders on smaller kites will enjoy a more precise control, whilst freestylers on the bigger sizes ensure to keep their kite on the spot during radical maneuvers.


A kite bar's safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3's new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and, most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.


CORE's exclusive hybrid system combines the advantages of a single front line, double front line, and fifth line safety. When deployed, it blows out the front line (below the "Y"), eliminating pull. At the same time, a pulley system shortens the second front line (above the "Y"), which moves the kite to a stable and safe relaunch position. 

CORE Supported Single Frontline Safety
Short Safety Leash - CORE Sensor 3s Pro Bar


Extra short is extra safe.

A short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our 50cm leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It's easier to see or grab, and it won't tangle. If, on the other hand, you see yourself unhooking in the future, we have a Pro Leash for you.


Lines Made in Germany - CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar


CORE tough. 

Our line supplier, Liros, is a name synonymous with innovation and workmanship. Liros pre-stretch all our lines under heat for lasting performance. You'll immediately notice the quality when laying out your lines for the first time.


For a better hold.

We splice all our ends before sewing for a more permanent hold. It's a little more work, but this method guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics.

Spliced Ends
Replaceable Bar Inserts

Replaceable Bar Inserts

Simple and replaceable.

Bar inserts that surround the depower lines lubricate them as they pass through the bar to reduce wear. The inserts are also easily and inexpensively replaced without tools. 

Anti-Slip Coating

More grip's always better.

Special rubber is applied to the bar ends and
CIC release to give the surface even more grip when wet.

Sensor 3S Pro Multibag


More than just a bag.

The multi-purpose barbag offers protection for your shiny Sensor 3S Pro bar when you're on the road. Accessories, tools, spare parts, line extensions, and optional loops can be stored in the bag's compartments. The mesh insert on the back guarantees proper ventilation. Fold it away or hang it up in a visible spot, so you don't forget it.

HIGH-Quality Raw Materials

A bar is only as good as the quality of its parts and processes.

We use thermoplastics primarily used for the production of precision parts using the injection molding process. The colorless, semi-crystalline polymers are characterized by extreme rigidity, low frictional resistance, and amazing dimensional stability.

Titanium is as strong as steel but 45% lighter. This gives titanium the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. Plus, titanium is impervious to salt. For these reasons, we've used titanium for the control bar truss, as well as the quick release and bar end grub screws.

Marine-grade A4 stainless steel is used for the remaining metal components. The higher proportion of molybdenum minimizes corrosion and delivers years of reliable performance.

Only the best stuff goes into every Sensor 3S Pro.

Standard Loop - CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar

Standard Loop

The small loop comes standard on the Sensor 3S Pro and is designed for freeriders and freestylers who mostly ride hooked. The smaller loop size also lowers the adjuster height, which benefits shorter riders. An elasticized chicken stick is easily manipulated to make hooking in faster. After hooking in, the chicken stick can be passed through the harness hook to avoid unintentional unhooking.

The Sensor 3S Pro comes equipped with our standard triple ring. Some images on this page show the Combo Ring

Rope Slider Loop - CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar


The Rope Slider loop is our recommended solution for wave and foil riders (who use a rope harness). Its compact design brings the bar closer to the body and improves lateral movement without annoying harness slippage. The Rope Slider is only intended for use with a sliding rope spreader bar. The metal surface of the loop is finely ground by hand to reduce friction and wear on the spreader bar rope. The safety ring can be attached in semi-suicide mode. This method keeps the leash's carabiner at the same level of the quick release and out of the way.

Pro Loop - CORE Sensor 3S Pro Bar


Radical wakestylers, freestylers, and unhooked kiters will prefer our largest available chickenloop. Its size makes unhooking and hooking back in easy and intuitive. Naturally, the distance to the adjuster increases, so you should keep that in mind. To prevent unintentional unhooking, use the chicken stick and when you don't need it, simply move it outside the loop where it won't get in the way.


Radical kiter or wakestyler? The Pro Leash 3 is for you. Its length enables comfortable passes without the "straitjacket" feel. A new swivel guarantees smooth spinning and a generous, protective neoprene sleeve over the carabiner prevents unintentional release.

Please note that connecting your leash to the back of your harness makes it more difficult to release than our standard leash. Do not select this option if you ride hooked in.
