Core GTS-4 Kite 2018 (18) Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
Core GTS-4 LW 15m / 17m:
The brand new three strut construction of the Core GTS-4 is revolutionary rather than evolutionary. GTS fans will instantly feel right at home.
Built with the same radical, 3 strut, bridled, C-kite configuration as its forerunner. But now, with more precision; a prodigious operating range; and dare we say, a little more badassery. The 4th generation of the legendary GTS series sports refinements to its Future-C shape, bridles, and construction. Refinements that make the GTS4 more powerful, precise, and responsive.
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. GTS4.
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 GTS4 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-4.
Core Tex Ripstop:
The fabric exclusively developed for CORE is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes.
In this way CoreTex® sets new records in load tests, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. This is noticeable during your session thanks to the crispness experienced whilst flying your kite and another reason why CoreTex® was obvious choice for the GTS4.
The kite fabric and tips of the GTS4 have been precision finished, to a defined percentage, with our new HF-Dacron. HF stands for Hard Finish, a harder, coated Dacron variation that stiffens the kite skeleton in the steering relevant areas. In addition it optimizes the energy distribution of the steering input into the kite fabric.
Core Intelligent System:
Thanks to the CIT there is no riding style or level that the GTS4 cannot be customized to.
You can adjust the kite bar feedback on the outer bridle lines.
The turning speed of the GTS4 can be adjusted at the kite tips. This trimming is easy and intuitive; you simply move a little knot.
Speed Valve 2:
Take a deep breath in, then out. The Core GTS-4 valve will accept all standard pump hoses without attachments.
This provides the SPEED VALVE 2 with the biggest, physically possible, flow of air. It’s simply not possible to pump up a kite with less effort and in less time. Even deflating the kite is noticeably quicker and easier too.
Core GTS-4 LW 15m and 17m:
There are very few sports like kitesurfing where only a small amount of wind is required to enjoy yourself and the newly designed GTS4 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 GTS4 Lightwind gives a playful and freestyle type ride. The Lightwind is not just a scaled up version of the GTS4 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.
The LW version of the GTS4 has a much flatter flight profile, allowing the kite to accelerate faster and produce its own wind, which is converted into additional propulsion. This design also allows for reduced wind resistance and unwanted lateral tension resulting in both Lightwinds going extremely well and effectively upwind. The turning speed of the GTS-4 can be adjusted at the kite tips. This trimming is easy and intuitive; you simply move a little knot.
The GTS4 Lightwind has thinner tubes than the smaller kites in the GTS4 range and benefits from this in three different ways. Firstly the tubes have been designed using less material, so therefore less weight. Secondly the tubes are thinner making the kites more flexible, which in turn allows for a quicker response time to a rider's command and thirdly the tubes have been redesigned and adapted to have an optimum flight profile, which in turn lets you go upwind even earlier and effectively.
Core have reduced the heavier Dacron material to just a few areas in the tips, a small area behind the leading edge and also on the trailing edge. Basically all areas that are considered to need special protection during launching and landing.
