"Core has only gone and done it again. Improved on a kite that was already best freestyle kite in our opinion, this new Core GTS5 is faster, goes bigger and kite loops like a total badass! Never before have we seen a kite work so well in so many areas of kitesurfing."
Never owned a core kite? Ha, you're in for a treat, Everything you hear about Core is very true the brand's strength and attention to detail is unrivaled in the kitesurfing industry. other kitesurf brands with freestyle kites cannot touch the pure power, class, and ease of use of the Core GTS5. If you already have a GTS4 or even any other Core Kite then you will already know that Core does not just change kites each year with a different color like 90% of other kitesurfing companies, oh no! Each Core kite has a 2-year lifespan at least and a full 6-year replacement part guaranteed to be available.
What Core says:
"So you're addicted to life in the fast lane but in a good way. And when you go, you go big! We feel the same, riding our newest GTS. Our 5th gen Universal+ Series allrounder delivers the superpowers unhooked riders demand without messin' up the original formula. We know how badass the GTS4 is. Its signature Future-C powered kite loops, and unhooked confidence is something we’re proud of. Now, experience a decade of iterative magic with our new and improved GTS5.
The indomitable GTS5 is built with precision steering; a prodigious operating range; and CORE's legendary linear power. Its fully adjustable handling lets riders throw the tightest loops (in waves) and the biggest Cape Town style mega loops in total control.
The GTS5 carries over its proven ExoTex powered 3 Strut Frame, Radical Reaction Tips, and Short Bridles from the fantastic GTS4. What’s new for the GTS5? We've optimized the leading edge diameters and tip geometry to improve flight stability (especially when looping.) We can’t forget to mention the new CIT Modes which customize the GTS5's handling characteristics. In Wave mode, riders dial in compact turns and more depower. Whereas in Freestyle mode, the kite adds more grunt and bigger turns. Giv’r all you got, the GTS5 will take you to infinity and beyond!
Future C-Shape: True C-kite feel. For snappy turns with a controlled and consistent pull.
CIT Modes: Fully adjustable kite handling characteristics. Wave mode makes the kite turn faster and increases depower, whilst Freestyle increases the trun radius and stabilizes the kite and adds a little extra grunt. The Nexus comes out of bag in the Allround mode that sits nicely between the two
Radical Reaction Tips: C-style shaped wingtips for faster bar response.
3 Strut Light Frame: Super light yet amazingly rigid and durable. Also able to initiate turns faster than a five-strut design important for wave riding
Exotex® Ultra Rigid Dacron: Zero stretch airframe utilising a radical reinforcing thread pattern and protective coating process that allows for a higher pressure with a smaller diameter
Coretex® Triple Ripstop Canopy: Extreme durability and UV protection setting the benchmark for longevity and tear resistance
Ultrashort Bridle System: Improved kite feedback.
Instant Relaunch: Reliable water starts in difficult conditions.
Speed Valve 2: The Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even have the energy for an extra trick or two.
Speed Pump System: Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and strut valves allow uninhibited air flow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)
Sensor Bar Ready: For maximum kite feedback and control pair this kite with a Sensor 2 or 2S bar.
6 Year Parts Availability: Core's Industry leading durability is backed by a 6-year replacement parts guarantee
