The GTS3 LW with its typical C-kite shape and feeling gives a playful and freestyle feel to the ride. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

One does wonder when they already have a 'light wind' kite in the Riot XR3LW, why do they need to produce one from the GTS platform, what's the difference? I mean it's not as if you can do that much in light wind.

What size range has it got, that GTS3, it's billed as a Naish Park/ Slingshot RPM, you would hardly expect to see them in a light wind incarnation.

Not being critical, just asking.

It's gonna be interesting to see another 3 strut light wind kite. I think they are trying to compensate cause of the success of the Flite and hopefully they manage but it just seems like a desperate attempt:)

The Ocean Rodeo Flite. By far the best selling LW kite we have had this year. Yes it appears that 3 struts seem to be the magic number on a light wind kite.

Yes, and the Infinity that preceded the Fat Lady, and the Big Mama that preceded, and the Turbine, and the etc, etc.
Three struts is good, or two struts, or one strut or no struts.
Lots of ways to skin that cat these days.
