Der CORE  Nexus 4

The Nexus is the most versatile model in the CORE range. The fourth generation still shines with impressive universality and now performs even better in waves. 


Proven material mix, excellent performance

The Nexus 4 retains its material combination of the low-stretch and tear-resistant CoreTex 2 and the stiff and ultra-robust ExoTex 2. Both CORE exclusive materials continue to be among the best on the market when it comes to performance and durability.

A thinner leading edge makes the Nexus more responsive and faster

The secret of its exceptional all-round performance lies in the special relationship between aspect ratio, arch profile, tip geometry and finely tuned bridle positioning, which has been largely adopted. The development team, led by Frank Ilfrich, meticulously revised the Leading Edge, which, among other things, has been given a smaller diameter. This adjustment makes the Nexus more reactive and faster, particularly during turns and loops, while also giving it an easier and improved drift.

In the new version, a new bladder material is used, which, together with other optimizations, brings an average weight saving of 200 grams per size while maintaining the same performance as the Nexus 3. Thanks to its thinner leading edge and weight advantage, the Nexus 4 now drifts even better.


One model, all possibilities

Big air and kite loops are also still among its strengths. It's no wonder that the Nexus remains as the kite model of choice for all-rounders and CORE team riders Steven Akkersdijk and Willow-River Tonkin, who ride the Nexus at the highest level in many disciplines. "With its arch and the width in the middle area of the Future-C-shape, it achieves an extraordinary lift and good hang time," says Frank Ilfrich, Chief designer and father of the model, adding: "The thinner leading edge makes kiteloops faster and even doubles quite achievable."  


Make the Nexus yours

The trim options of the CORE Intelligent Trim are crucial factors in the variability of the Nexus. In freestyle mode, it delivers maximum power in loops and explosive power delivery for high jumps. In wave mode, the Nexus displays tight turning radio, long-range depower and an intriguing drift ability for wave, or excursions on the foil. In the all-round setting, it presents itself with harmonious freeride characteristics that are characterized by pronounced comfort.
