Feel the rush

GTS6. Like a friend that pushes us beyond our comfort zone to a place with no limits, CORE’s newest Universal Series kite unlocks your wild side. Reward yourself with mind-blowing megaloop power and deutscher precision. The indomitable GTS6.

The GTS’s accomplishments may be well known amongst the hardcore freestyle crowd, but we’d also like to mention the kite’s impeccable manners in unpredictable winds. It effortlessly absorbs unexpected gusts on those unforgettable downwinders and then, it delivers gut-wrenching megaloops when you unleash it. 

So, what’s new for the GTS6? Well, we’ve beefed up the leading edge and we’ve 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 6er. The three strut, Future-C canopy still forms the nucleus of the GTS. Call us obsessive, but after testing the new GTS6 for so long, we think this kite rocks. Let us know if you agree! 

Reward yourself with mammoth power and cracking loops that you so richly deserve. Test the indomitable GTS6 now at your nearest authorized CORE retailer.
 

Is the GTS6 right for you?
Do you enjoy a proper yank from a legit looping machine? Are you experimenting with megaloop board-offs? Do your surfboard aerials rival your twintip tricks? If you answered yes, then this kite’s for you.







Key Feature Snapshot

EXOTEX® Light Struts NEw!

Same ExoTex benefits. Just a little lighter. No-stretch ExoTex Light Dacron incorporates a re-engineered radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that reduces mass by approximately 10%. The larger diameter struts resist bending, save weight, and lend a sportier, punchier feel when looping. The lighter struts also improve the GTS’s drifting – an important attribute for freestylers and wave riders.

CORE GTS 6 - EXOTEX® Light Struts - Logo

3 Strut Light Frame

Three struts promote more twist while providing rock-solid canopy stability. More twist initiates faster turns and fewer struts reduce kite weight. GTS6. Your perfect partner to go big on the Bloubergstrand or the Slick.

CORE GTS 6 CIT Modes: Wave / Allround / Freestyle

CIT Modes

Custom-fit your GTS for any riding style. Start by selecting your favorite no-snag 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.

CORE XLITE Kite - Future-C Shape

Future-C Shape

The Gen6 carries over the familiar GTS C-kite feel we all have come to love. The high aspect ratio, open C shape delivers smooth and controllable kiteloops and that unmistakable “on-center” feel. When paired with the new Sensor 3 bar, riders will immediately feel the GTS6’s sweet spot and appreciate the kite’s linear response when sheeting in and out. Try a Future-C kite, and you’ll never go back.

EXOTEX® Ultra Rigid Dacron - Logo | GTS 6 Kite - CORE Kitebarding

EXOTEX® Ultra Rigid Dacron

Our no-stretch ExoTex Dacron used on our leading edge incorporates a unique radial thread pattern and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables higher pressure. 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 GTS6.

CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY

Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry-leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions.

CORE GTS 6 - Radical Reaction Tips

RADICAL REACTION TIPS NEw!

The GTS6 inherits cat-like reflexes from its square-ish, ‘C-style’, wingtips. We fine-tuned the leading edge profile to provide confidence-inspiring reflexes, agility, and directional control. 

Short Bridle System

Ultrashort Bridle System

A little shorter and even sweeter. The un-bowtie-able, two pulley, bridle system is super short on the GTS6 which improves bar reaction, feel and positional feedback. And for this kiteloop machine, having precise bar control in your hands is a bonus when you’re blind and upside down.

GRINTEX® Patches

Anti-wear patches where you need them most. Extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut tips give another level of protection from perfectly placed beach hazards.

Speed Valve 2

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.

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. Wave riders will appreciate how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug especially when time is of the essence. And freestylers will appreciate the GTS6’s quick relaunch between tricks.

Sensor 3 Barsystem - CORE Kiteboarding

SENSOR BAR READY

The GTS6 is optimized for CORE’s ultralight Sensor bar systems including our latest Sensor 3. They feature precise kite control, unmatched safety, and uncluttered simplicity. Find out more about the new Sensor 3 features like Live Wire, Stealth Winder, and push-out quick release here.
