Triple your freestyle sessions with Core's improved GTS5 LW lightwind edition! Master your favorite unhooked tricks in those less than perfect wind conditions or just relax and cruise down to the next beach with your buddies. With virtually the same control and agility as your smaller GTS5, it's so good you 'might' even start looking forward to those lightwind days.
The GTS5 LW carries over much of the three strut, ExoTex design from its smaller siblings to retain its outstandingl agile, freestyle character. This 5th generation features new refinements to its shape and Leading Edge diameters. Improvements that make the GTS5 even more stable when looping the kite while still delivering that special ‘C-kite’ feel.
GTS5 Lightwind is the perfect partner for those not so perfect days. Delivering enough pop for you to lay down some impressive tricks while everyone else is stuck mowing the lawn.
3 Strut Frame: Three struts promote more twist than five. More twist initiates faster turns. Fewer struts also reduce kite weight which benefits slack-lining.
Future C-Shape: True C-kite feel. For snappy turns with a controlled and consistent pull.
CoreTex Light: Exclusive to CORE’s LW Editions. This industry-leading, ripstop canopy fabric is just as durable as the original CoreTex and sets similar benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection.
UltraLight Wingtips: ExoTex® Dacron provides an opportunity for weight saving leading and trailing edge designs while protecting areas in contact with the beach during launching and landing. Those areas are particularly robust and designed to take a beating.
Radical Reaction Tips: C-style shaped wingtips for faster bar response
Speed Profile: A more efficient and aerodynamic kite profile can generate more apparent wind and thereby create more lift and power. Fly faster. And fly earlier with the LW edition.
ExoTex® Slim Struts: Made in Germany. And exceptionally durable. ExoTex’s new asymmetrical Dacron weave and emulsion (protective coating) process is specifically developed for our exoskeleton frames to prevent bulging, ripping and UV degradation. Improves flight stability and delivers superb rider feedback.
UltraShort Bridle System: A little shorter and even sweeter. The un-bowtie-able, two pulleys, bridle system is shorter on the new GTS4 LW which improves bar reaction, feel and positional feedback. And for this unhooked maestro, having precise bar control in your hands is a bonus when you’re potentially blind and upside down.
Core Intelligent Trim (CIT) System: Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, Core's quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. But don’t worry, the kite comes out of the bag ready to fly so you can play with the adjustments later.
Speed Valve 2: Maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure.
Speed Pump System: First one on the water wins! We installed big strut distribution hoses and designed aerodynamic strut valves to make air flow faster into the struts. We did this all for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kite. (Not exactly as shown.)
GrinTex Patches: Extra protection where you need it most. Extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another level of protection from those perfectly placed beach hazards.
Instant Relaunch: Reliable water starts under challenging conditions.
Sensor Bar Ready: Fully compatible with the Sensor 2 and Sensor 2S bar system which features precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system.
6 YEAR PARTS GUARANTEE: Six-year parts availability guarantee.
