Early
Freestylin’ Ninja

The undisputed lightwind freestyle champ.

Some days don’t deliver the freestyle conditions your buddies promised. And that’s just fine if you remembered to pack your mojo...I mean...CORE GTS4 LW lightwind edition. The GTS4 LW will make any marginal day, a fabulicious session. With virtually the same control and agility as your smaller GTS’s, you may even pine for the occasional low wind day.

The GTS4 LW carries over much of the 3 strut design from its smaller siblings to retain its agile, freestyle character. The 4th generation features refinements to its shape, aspect ratio, bridles, and construction. Refinements that make the GTS4 more depowerable and controllable over a wider wind range; deliver better front to back balance; improve back-stall prevention; and give more of that special ‘C-kite’ feel.  

GTS4 LW. A perfect partner for those not so perfect days. Delivering enough pop for you to lay down some moves while everyone else is mowing the lawn. 


Key Feature Snapshot

3 Strut Frame - GTS4 LW

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. GTS4 LW. For a sweet, smiley faced ride on smaller days.


CORETEX® LIGHT

Exclusive to CORE’s LW Editions. Just a little lighter. Our, 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. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex Light kite delivers.

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.

SPEED PROFILE

The GTS4 LW edition incorporates a flatter wing profile to reduce wind resistance and unwanted lateral pressure. 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. The no stretch fabric also improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, the more robust ExoTex exoskeleton reduces flutter; improves flight stability and delivers superb rider feedback.

ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

A little shorter and even sweeter. The un-bowtie-able, two pulley, 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 SYSTEM (CIT)

CORE INTELLIGENT TRIM SYSTEM (CIT)

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, 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

Speed Valve 2

No special hose adapter to misplace here! The reinforced 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 leave your electric pump at home.

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.

Sensor Bar System

SENSOR BAR READY

The GTS4 LW is 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. The super clean design has no bobbles to interfere with your style and the ingenious no sag flag/safety line is more aerodynamic (and looks better!).
