The brand new three strut construction of the Core GTS-6 is revolutionary rather than evolutionary. GTS fans will instantly feel right at home.
The GTS-6 has a beefed up leading edge and Core have made significant improvements to the struts. They’re now lighter and more robust. The new larger diameter ExoTex Light struts resist bending, save weight, and lend a sportier, punchier feel when looping. Don’t worry, everything you love about the GTS5 is still in the 6. The three strut, Future-C canopy still forms the nucleus of the GTS.
The GTS6 carries over its proven ExoTex 3 Strut Frame, Radical Reaction Tips, and Short Bridles. Core have optimized the leading edge diameters and tip geometry to improve flight stability especially when looping and now comes with new CIT Modes which customize the GTS6's handling characteristics.
In Wave mode, riders dial in compact turns and more depower. Whereas Freestyle mode adds more grunt and bigger turns. The GTS comes out of the bag in Allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime. Wakestylers may even notice more pop from the larger sizes.
On the rail. In the tube. Or in the air. Experience Core's interpretation of controlled aggression embodied in powerful, controllable, turns with a radius that extends just beyond its wingtips. Superb bar feel by virtue of its shorter Short Bridle System and unbelievably responsive ExoTex construction.
An easy choice for unhooked freestyle, relaxed freeriding, or waves of any size. With its linear and predictable behavior, you might even think the new GTS6 is virtually connected to your cortex. Its signature turns complement any transition and gets you going when that big wave is chasing you down.
Be amazed at the playful precision, improved unhooked characteristics, plus the incredible lift and hang-time of the Core GTS-6.
CORE GTS-6 LW 15 and 17m Edition:
There are very few sports like kitesurfing where only a small amount of wind is required to enjoy yourself and the newly designed GTS6 lightwind, that's available in 15 and 17 sqm, makes life even easier. Responding to just the lightest of breeze, with speed and agility, it will let you enjoy yourself in less than perfect light wind conditions and put a smile all over your face.
The GTS6 Lightwind gives a playful and freestyle type ride. The Lightwind is not just a scaled up version of the GTS6 and although the kite has been designed around the light weight three strut chassis and technology of its smaller siblings, there are fundamental changes, such as a lower profile, rounder tips, thinner tubing and the use of CORE's patented lightweight material CoreTex® Light.
