The undisputed megaloop champ.

Meet the newest member of the Universal+ Series: The indomitable GTS4. 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 our 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. Exactly what you would expect from CORE. And a little more.

FREESTYLE | WAVE | FREERIDE

The undisputed lightwind freestyle champ.

Some days don’t deliver the freestyle conditions your buddies promised. And that’s just fine if you remembered to pack your mojo…I mean…CORE GTS4 LW lightwind edition. The GTS4 LW will make any marginal day, a fabulicious session. With virtually the same control and agility as your smaller GTS’s, you may even pine for the occasional low wind day.

The GTS4 LW carries over much of the 3 strut design from its smaller siblings to retain its agile, freestyle character. The 4th generation features refinements to its shape, aspect ratio, bridles, and construction. Refinements that make the GTS4 more depowerable and controllable over a wider wind range; deliver better front to back balance; improve back-stall prevention; and give more of that special ‘C-kite’ feel.

GTS4 LW. A perfect partner for those not so perfect days. Delivering enough pop for you to lay down some moves while everyone else is mowing the lawn.
