Moving from North Vegas - Core Gts5 or Xr5

Postby Calucloe » Sat May 18, 2019 3:07 am

Hi im thinking about moving from North Vegas 2018 10mts to Core Gts5 or Xr5 since im now more into Boosting high and some kiteloops (not megaloops).
Im about 15-17mts - highest 18.5mts.
I Ride my Vegas from 15 to 30kn.
Id like to know if i should go for Gts5 or Xr5. I love how Gts5 looks like, but i dont know if ill go higher than with my Vegas or Xr5 is THE choice.
Please give me some advice..... Also if it should be 9 or 10 to have about same windrange (or maybe better).
Tks a lot!!!!

Try an eleveight FS.. best of both worlds. Boost’s huge and loops great.

You will never regret to change to Core Kites! Coming from the Vegas you will love the GTS5. The XR5 is a classic 5 strut kite that feels totaly different.

Long story short

GTS very fast loop or Megaloop - no power for size..

XR5 jumps very well standard loops and heli loops well - slower than you gran :)

The GTS will give you the boost you need if you have a good technique and are well powered and will loop beautifully .

But the Xr is designed for big air and floaty Jumps with more hang time and less technique required for a smooth landing.

If I was gonna be focusing on megaloops I would definatley go for the GTS ,
