The GTS3 is a rock solid C style kite with a short bridle that is really easy to ride for this style of kite. It has great overhead stability, great low end power and pop, slacks out well after tricks and can still boost well. We could not get the kite to back stall when you unhook either. The squared off wing tip gives you more power through the turns as the kite carves through the wind window. With all Core kites, you still have full steering capabilities even when you have the kite fully depowered. We can't figure out how they do it, and it really adds to the usable wind range of these kites. Surprisingly, the GTS3 relaunches with out issue and an advanced beginner will have no issue buying this as their first kite.
The GTS3 has grunty power and you feel the kite compared to the Riot. This direct bar feel is a positive for most people that are looking for a wake style/freestyle kite so they know where the kite is in the wind window at all times. The other point to note is that while the GTS3 does not jump as high as Riot, but it does have that signature soft float down to the water.
Who is the GTS3 for:
The Core GTS3 is a bad ass kite that is looking for a bad ass rider to put it through it's paces. This kite does everything really well and everyone should at least take one for a spin to see what they are missing. Riders that love the following or aspire to do these things should drop everything they are doing and buy a quiver of GTS3: MEGA LOOPS, unhooked freestyle, powered wave riding, wake style, and hard core boosting freestyle.
3-STRUT FRAME: Two less struts results in two additional advantages: Firstly, the GTS3 now turns faster and more directly – new levels of performance have been achieved especially with kiteloops and while wave riding. Secondly, it’s noticeably lighter and more perfectly balanced. Whenever the lines lose tension the GTS3 holds true in position.
FUTURE-C SHAPE: C-Kite-Feeling at its best. Even though the GTS3 turns incredibly fast and direct, the kite still remains easily controllable in each turn. This is thanks to the proven Future-C, which has been cut even deeper with the GTS3, resulting in a precise and predictable turning radius.
RADICAL REACTION TIPS: The tips of the GTS3 are pure precision. Thanks to a noticeably thinner, specifically defined flight profile and a newly designed trailing edge they are optimized to the agility of the 3 Strut Construction. A further reason why turning impulses are instantly translated without hesitation.
CORE TEX: The fabric exclusively developed for CORE is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes. In this way CoreTex® sets new records in load tests, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. This is noticeable during your session thanks to the crispness experienced whilst flying your kite and another reason why CoreTex® was obvious choice for the GTS3.
SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM: Short Process. The super short bridle system is another deciding factor allowing the GTS3 to transform rider input quickly and directly. The bridle geometry has once again been revised and with this the GTS3 has become, more than ever, a wave and kiteloop machine.
HF-DACRON: Sophisticated mix of materials. The kite fabric and tips of the GTS3 have been precision finished, to a defined percentage, with our new HF-Dacron. HF stands for Hard Finish, a harder, coated Dacron variation that stiffens the kite skeleton in the steering relevant areas. In addition it optimizes the energy distribution of the steering input into the kite fabric.
The kite is in near perfect condition, with no rips, tears, or pinholes in the bladder. The kite it's self flies excellently, and can guarantee you a sweet session everytime!
