THE SPORTY 3-IN-ONE KITE

Unleash your inner freestyle ninja with the 3 strut, Future-C GTS3. With its impeccable unhooked manners, wave prowess, and precise yet playful freeriding. Check out all the tech stuff we squeezed into this kite.

Key Feature Snapshot

3 STRUT FRAME

Three struts promote more twist than five. More twist initiates faster turns. Fewer struts also reduce kite weight which helps in slack line drift. 


FUTURE-C SHAPE

True C-kite feel. For snappy turns with a controlled and consistent pull. And for the GTS3, we cut the shape even deeper (thus increasing tip length over the previous GTS2) for even more reliable turns.

RADICAL REACTION TIPS

The GTS3 inherits cat-like reflexes from its thin, square-ish, ‘C-style’, wing tips. The swept design is slightly lengthened over the GTS2 for even better response. 

CORETEX® Triple Ripstop

Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite can deliver.

SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise, tight turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.

HF DACRON

HF or Hard Finish Dacron is an exceptionally durable Dacron which we use to reinforce the kite frame and steering areas promoting a more direct and crisp response to bar input.

CORE INTELLIGENT TRIM SYSTEM (CIT)

Kite speed and bar pressure are a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension, bar pressure and kite turning speed, our 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

No special hose adapter needed here! The heavy duty Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm O.D. twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. The valve location also protects it from beach hazards. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

GRINTEX® Patches

Anti-wear patches where you need them. New, 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.

SENSOR BAR READY

The GTS3 is fully compatible with the Sensor 2 or the Sensor Pro bar which feature precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. Naturally, the GTS3 is also compatible with older 4 line CORE bars too.

INSTANT AUTO RELAUNCH

Instant relaunch really is instant! The GTS3 is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your GTS3 has your back.
