You're addicted to life in the fast lane but in a good way. And when you go, you go big! We feel the same, riding our newest GTS. Our 5th gen Universal+ Series allrounder delivers the superpowers unhooked riders demand without messin' up the original formula. We know how badass the GTS4 is. Its signature Future-C powered kiteloops, and unhooked confidence is something we’re proud of. Now, experience a decade of iterative magic with our new and improved GTS5.

Freestyle Ninja. Megaloop Machine. And more.

The indomitable GTS5. Built with precision steering; a prodigious operating range; and CORE's legendary linear power. Its fully adjustable handling lets you throw the tightest loops (in waves) to the biggest Cape Town style megaloops in total control. This megaloop machine has your back. So, go for it. And find your limits with Europe’s unhooked bestseller.

Explosiveness defined: Future-C shape, three struts, and ultra short bridles!

The GTS5 carries over its proven ExoTex powered 3 Strut Frame, Radical Reaction Tips, and Short Bridles from the fantastic GTS4. What’s new for the GTS5? We optimized the leading edge diameters and tip geometry to improve flight stability (especially when looping.) We can’t forget to mention our new CIT Modes which customize the GTS5's handling characteristics. In Wave mode, riders dial in compact turns and more depower. Whereas in Freestyle mode, the kite adds more grunt and bigger turns. Giv’r all you got, the GTS5 will take you to infinity and beyond!

GTS5 LW – Mr. Big is back, baby!

From the makers of the biggest line of lightwind kites comes the newest freestyle fun machine. 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!

Powerful. Versatile. And outrageously addictive.

Riding a Universal+ Series kite has its advantages. We all know the freestyle cred the GTS5 possesses. But, we'd be selling it short if we didn't mention its versatility on waves. And its smooth and comfy handling on those titanic downwinders. Take one out for a spin soon. You'll be glad you did!

Did any of you picked up any new features on the GTS5? I see the bridles got tweaked a little and that the LE seems more segmented. Of course any water experience comparaison would be very welcome :) The evolution gap doesn't seem as big as from the GTS3 to the GTS4 but heck bring the reviews on!
