Fusion 6 and Fusion 6 LW


August 29, 2023  -  Categories: KITE

CORE has launched the sixth generation of its versatile twintip Fusion, building upon the accomplishments of its highly successful predecessor. This latest version features a thinner and stiffer carbon fabric, along with an overall enhanced environmental balance. These improvements not only deliver superior jumping performance but also contribute to a heightened sense of environmental consciousness.

During the development of the Fusion 6, there was a strong focus on advancing the Freeride + / Freestyle aspect of the previous model, Fusion 5, known for its impressive performance. The aim was to build upon the already successful and well-received Fusion 5, which was based on a holistic CAD-based, integrative, and innovative approach, and take it to new heights. The process began with a 3D layout and a careful selection of materials.


Stiffer and stronger

Now in its sixth generation, the Fusion introduces a notable advancement inspired by the cutting-edge Imperator, developed by the CARVED team at CORE. A ground-breaking addition to the Fusion 6 is the integration of Cartan 2 Carbon which is thinner, lighter, and more powerful. Due to its lower layer of thickness, it lies flat on the core, requires significantly less resin, and is therefore more efficient in terms of stiffness and strength. The formula is simple: more fiber in the laminate means less material, leading to increased and faster restoring forces for enhanced performance.

The special feature: Cartan 2 does not come off the carbon roll, but is manufactured to fit each board size, so cutting waste is reduced by up to 80%.

Neue Cavity, neue Rockerline

Aufgrund der hohen Rückstellkräfte des Cartan 2 musste in diesem Zusammenhang das 2-dimensionale Rockerbett überarbeitet werden. Diese Tüftelei, die nicht simuliert werden kann, setzt viele Monate des Testens voraus, um die perfekte Abstimmung zu erzielen. Mit dem optional erhältlichen REVO Grabhandle kann zusätzlich das Flex- und Rockerpattern "on the fly" angepasst werden was neue, ungeahnte Leistungsperspektiven eröffnet.

The Fusion 6 also features a revised 2-dimensional rocker bed to accommodate the high restoring forces of Cartan 2. This tinkering, which cannot be simulated, requires many months of testing to achieve the perfect tuning. With the optionally available REVO grab handle, the flex and rocker pattern can also be adapted "on the fly", which opens new, undreamt-of performance perspectives.

Unibody edge, well-structured underbody and grab section

The great achievements, which still far exceed the standards on the market, have remained: such as the Unibody Edge, composite rods made of 80-layer laminate that enable an extremely strong connection of the upper and lower carbon laminates. The weight-optimized Paulownia Light wood core made of selected rod slats, which is up to 20% lighter than a conventional Paulownia wood core. And, of course, the multi-channel concept, which is linked to a double-concave layout for an excellent driving feel with high smoothness, or the grab section for easier board-offs.


Small steps to meet big responsibility

As a manufacturer, we are continuously reviewing how we can make production and supply chains more sustainable. A new building block towards a better environmental balance is the GreenPoxy, which was used for the first time in Fusion 6. An epoxy resin whose molecular structure is 35% of plant origin - without any disadvantages in its function and performance.


Fusion 6 LW – shredding when others foil

CORE wouldn't be CORE if all those high-tech developments weren't adapted to a corresponding Lightwind model. Once again, there is an independently built Fusion LW in two sizes that promises nothing less than maximum riding pleasure with good agility and respectable jumping performance in the lowest wind range.
