EARLY
FREESTYLIN’ NINJA.

AND STILL, THE UNDISPUTED LIGHTWIND FREESTYLE CHAMP ;)

Triple your freestyle sessions with our improved GTS5 LW lightwind edition! Yes, master your favorite unhooked tricks in less than perfect wind conditions or relax and cruise down to the next beach with your buddies. With virtually the same control and agility as your smaller GTS’s, you may even pine for the occasional low wind day. Really!

The GTS5 LW carries over much of the three strut, ExoTex design from its smaller siblings to retain its agile, freestyle character. The 5th generation features refinements to its shape and LE diameters. Improvements that make the GTS5 even more stable when looping the kite while still delivering that special ‘C-kite’ feel.  

GTS5 LW. A perfect partner for those not so perfect days. Delivering enough pop for you to lay down some impressive tricks while everyone else is mowing the lawn. 


Key Feature Snapshot



CIT MODES (NEU)

Custom fit your GTS LW for any riding style. Start by selecting your favorite CIT modes on the leading edge bridle connection points. The Freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. In Wave mode, the kite turns faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. The kite comes out of the bag in Allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime.

Finish your personalization by adjusting the steering line connection points to set turning speed and bar pressure. But don’t worry, the kite comes ready to fly in the most common settings.

3 Strut Frame

Our ExoTex powered, three-strut frame sports an increased aspect ratio. It promotes more twist yet it still maintains its rock-solid shape. More twist initiates faster turns. Fewer struts also reduce kite weight which improves slack-lined drifting. GTS5 LW. Your perfect partner to go big on the North Shore or at the Slick.

EXOTEX® SLIM STRUTS

The benchmark for performance Dacron. No-stretch ExoTex Dacron incorporates a unique radial reinforcing thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables higher pressure airframes. ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by substantially increasing tube strength and rigidity. How can you tell? Look at the radial seams on our leading edge. Do you see any seam bulges that disturb airflow? Not anymore. Instead, expect smooth airflow, snappy turns, and endless smiles on your new GTS LW.

CORETEX® LIGHT

Exclusive to CORE. Our ripstop material is a lighter weight fabric created solely for our LW range. This lightweight fabric improves low wind performance yet provides incredible breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. Feel the tight, crisp signature of a CoreTex Light kite.

Ultralight Wingtips



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 GTS5 LW edition incorporates a flatter wing profile to reduce wind resistance and unwanted lateral pressure. A more efficient and aerodynamic kite profile generates more apparent wind and thereby creates more lift and power. Fly faster. And fly earlier with the LW edition.

Short Bridle System

ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

Short and sweet. The GTS5 LW’s super short bridle system improves feedback, so you have a better feel for your kite’s position. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot-wired to your brain.

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 :)


































SPEED VALVE 2

No special hose adapter needed here! 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 effort. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

Sensor Bar System



SENSOR BAR READY

The GTS5 LW is optimized for CORE’s ultralight Sensor 2 and 2S bar systems. They feature precise kite control, unmatched safety, and uncluttered simplicity. Find out why everyone loves our Sensor 2S here.






INSTANT RELAUNCH

A quick relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave or obstacle that is about to eat your kite. We designed the kite to find its relaunch position in a jiffy. Freestylers will appreciate the GTS5’s quick relaunch between tricks. And wave riders will enjoy how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug on the bar.
