CORE Sensor2S Pro Control Bar
1 of 2
Your session's awesomeness depends heavily on your gear. We believe the Sensor 2 Pro control bar system contributes much more than you would think to kite performance. And it's what you don't see that makes our bars so unbelievably good. The functional know-how we hide inside and the minimalist design on the outside gives our bars the signature CORE confidence you expect. And the safety features you rely on.

The Sensor 2 bar is now joined by the new Sensor 2S and Sensor 2S Pro. Two new bars with more tech features that you can't even see at first glance. Regardless of your bar selection, The CORE Sensor 2 bar system will provide you with the lightest, safest, and most direct feeling bar on the market. Because we sell more than just cool bars. We sell confidence.

Meet the new Sensor 2S Pro bar. The only, titanium trussed, carbon fiber control bar. A bar that exhausts superlatives. A bar we are very proud of. We leveraged our experience in carbon fiber board building to build a 100% carbon fiber, thin grip, unibody bar reinforced with a titanium alloy truss. Although it shares many of the same features as our sensational Sensor 2S bar, it is profoundly different in that it features a full carbon fiber bar and 100% Tectanium lines, top to bottom. Go Sensor 2S Pro.

What We Say:
This is a bar that is very light and very comfortable in your hands. The dual line ceter line system that un-spins the lines by simply pilling in on the bar is a wonderful addition. The Tectanium lines are strong, do not tangle easily and with the line segmentation, you have many options for overall line length. Once you try this bay, you will love how it feels in youyr hands. If you are wondering if it is worth the higher price, we wholeheartedly think it is.
