CIT Modes :
Custom fit your Nexus to your riding style. Start by selecting your favorite CIT mode on the leading edge bridle connection points. The wave mode makes the kite turn faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar making foot changes a snap. The freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. The kite comes out of the bag in allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime.

3-Strut Frame:
Two less struts results in two additional advantages: Firstly, the GTS5 now turns faster and more directly – new levels of performance have been achieved especially with kiteloops and while wave riding. Secondly, it’s noticeably lighter and more perfectly balanced. Whenever the lines lose tension the GTS5 holds true in position.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite
Future C-Shape:
C-Kite-Feeling at its best. Even though the GTS5 turns incredibly fast and direct, the kite still remains easily controllable in each turn. This is thanks to the proven Future-C, which has been cut even deeper with the GTS5, resulting in a precise and predictable turning radius.
Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Radical Reaction Tips:
The tips of the GTS5 are pure precision. Thanks to a noticeably thinner, specifically defined flight profile and a newly designed trailing edge they are optimized to the agility of the 3 Strut Construction. A further reason why turning impulses are instantly translated without hesitation.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Short Bridle System:
The super short bridle system is another deciding factor allowing the GTS5 to transform rider input quickly and directly. The bridle geometry has once again been revised and with this the GTS5 has become, more than ever, a wave and kiteloop machine.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Abrasion resistant front tube. Thanks to the new, extreme abrasion resistant patches on all the seam segments of the front tube and the struts you can worry even less about the ground under your GTS-5.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Speed-Pump System:

The distribution hoses of the One-Pump-System have larger diameters. The entry points to the struts have also been more aerodynamically distributed, making the air distribution system work more effectively and more comfortably, resulting in stunning inflation and deflation times.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Instant Relaunch:
If you happen to have a mishap on the water, don't worry. The new GTS5 will be flying again in, well, "an instant"; thanks to it's optimized geometry. If you happen to eject, the SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY will disarm your kite without hesitation, and will be waiting for you in the re-launch position. This makes it an ideal match for anyone; whether you're just doing your first water starts, working on your "Triple-Lindy", or getting barreled in Indonesia - you'll be up and riding again before you can say "CORE Kites Rock".

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Sensor Bar System:
The GTS5 is perfectly matched with our brand new bar systems, the SENSOR 2 bar and the SENSOR PRO bar. They offer superior safety of the SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF): The kite will be released, without pressure, on a single front line and with partial release on the other frontline resulting in the kite being automatically positioned in the optimum defined position for a re-start. Naturally, the GTS5 is also 100% compatible with all the older CORE bars.

User Rating:


The brand new three strut construction of the Core GTS-5 is revolutionary rather than evolutionary. GTS fans will instantly feel right at home.


The GTS5 carries over its proven ExoTex 3 Strut Frame, Radical Reaction Tips, and Short Bridles. Core have optimized the leading edge diameters and tip geometry to improve flight stability especially when looping and now comes with new CIT Modes which customize the GTS5's handling characteristics.


In Wave mode, riders dial in compact turns and more depower. Whereas Freestyle mode adds more grunt and bigger turns. The GTS comes out of the bag in Allround mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime. Wakestylers may even notice more pop from the larger sizes.


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.


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 GTS5 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-5.


Core Tex Ripstop:

North Dice 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding KiteThe 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.


HF Dacron:

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 GTS5 cannot be customized to.


You can adjust the kite bar feedback on the outer bridle lines.


The turning speed of the GTS5 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-5 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-5 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 GTS5 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 GTS5 Lightwind gives a playful and freestyle type ride. The Lightwind is not just a scaled up version of the GTS5 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.


Speed Profile:

The LW version of the GTS5 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-5 can be adjusted at the kite tips. This trimming is easy and intuitive; you simply move a little knot.


Slim Struts:

The GTS5 Lightwind has thinner tubes than the smaller kites in the GTS5 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.


Ultra-Light Tips:

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.

  • Perfect for Freeride / Easy Riding / Hangtime / Freestyle / Wave
  • Direct and Fast Turning
  • Short and Direct Bridle
  • Easy Jumping Ability
  • Superb Unhooked Performance

Depower Control Bar

Core Sensor 2 Bar with Lines

Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new Core Sensor 2 Bar System.


One of the most important aspects when kiting is how the kite feels whilst flying. What most people don’t know is that the bar system has just as an important role to play, in the way the kite feels, as the kite itself. The technical development of the bar is of particular importance for CORE.


When you take the brand new SENSOR 2 bar system on the water you will be suitably impressed. The SENSOR 2 bar weighs almost nothing, but is packed full of high tech and know how. It's as if it turns every kite on, making it more direct and providing better feedback, just as if your senses where fused with the kite lines. The SENSOR 2 bar shines with lots of innovative features that make it a high performance piece of equipment.


The Core Sensor 2 Control Bar comes with 24m / 368kg x 368kg flying lines.


230g Unibody Control Bar:
Development in Germany made it possible to reduce further the weight of the Unibody for the SENSOR 2, making it feather light and weighing only 230 gram. The result of this, thanks to the significantly reduced moment of inertia and the optimized leverage of the levelled bar ends, is steering that is unmatched in ease and freedom. This is the secret behind the unique SENSOR feeling: intensive feedback matched with playfully and precise control of the kite.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite
Titanium Core:
In the middle of the Unibody bar is the secret to the strength of the SENSOR 2. Thanks to the specially constructed titanium insert the SENSOR 2 is able to boast an extreme break load and stiffness whilst being as light as a feather. These attributes also result in the typical crisp flight feeling.
Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Exchangeable Bar Inserts:
The depower lines are threaded through the middle of the bar by channel formed inserts. Their special material acts like a lubricant and prevents line wear and tear. These inserts are easily and cheaply exchanged without any tools.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

EVA Grip:
Thanks to the stronger 0.5 millimeter EVA-coating and more defined profiling, the SENSOR 2 offers noticeably more grip and during longer session the levels of comfort will definitely be appreciated.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Supported Single Frontline Safety:
Combining the advantages of Single Line Safety, double frontline and fifth line – without inheriting the disadvantages of each system.

When you release the kite it will blow out, without pressure, on only one front line whilst the second front line leads the kite into a stable, very comfortable and especially safe re-launch position. This is a distinctive advantage for hard freestyle training or in the waves and will also save beginners and intermediates a lot of time and effort.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Sensor Adjuster:

The forces acting on the cleat adjuster are reduced to a quarter by the addition of another loop through the slide pulley, which results in the exceptionally smooth and precise operation of the adjuster, even in the upper wind limits. And the levels of comfort get even better: the depower throw can now be easily adjusted to suit the size of the rider by simply moving the cleat adjuster.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Rotor Quick Release:
The release mechanism, which can be turned in either direction, allows for intuitive emergency release in any situation. It has been proven that the turning motion allows for more force to be exerted. In addition to this, and unlike conventional systems, you don’t need to fight against the water flow. The ROTOR system not only more than fulfills the highest standards but it also sets new standards in safety, as regularly proven by independent testing. Another tangible advantage: Compared to push systems, the ROTOR quickrelease has a noticeably more compact and lighter design, while also bringing the depower adjuster closer to the riders reach – not only a comfort plus but also resulting in better safety in critical situations.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

100% Self Unswivelling:
The self-un-swivelling of the CORE bars has been setting high standards for many years as it sorts the lines out in any and every situation without issue. CORE has always designed the lines to twist and cross below the bar. When you pull the bar down the lines are left with little option but to sort themselves out again.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Spliced Line Ends:
A small but refined detail of the SENSOR 2 lines are the spliced line ends. They aren’t simply finished off and secured with a parallel stich, but rather eloquently spliced before being stitched. This guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics – laying out of the lines is also noticeably smoother.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Vario Width:
All kite sizes respond to one bar. Thanks to the ability to easily adjust the knot of the steering lines at the end of the bar, the size can be extended by six centimeters from 46 to 52 centimeters. With this the SENSOR 2 bar covers the full kite spectrum from 5 to 19 square metres..

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Short Safety Leash:
All CORE bar systems are equipped, as standard, with the SHORT SAFETY LEASH. The leash is only 50 centimeters and the release can be found at the front of the harness – perfectly placed for easy handling and in the riders viewing angle. The release mechanism stays attached to the kiters harness. Studies have shown that only a small percentage of kiters regularly ride unhooked – nevertheless you’ll find lots of long leashes on the water – pure cool factor with high levels of risk. Longer leashes are not only less safe when released, they also get regularly tangled in all and sundry.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Core Loop / Stick Set:
Even here we’ve been innovative. When unhooked the side mounted chicken stick automatically glides away from the center of the chicken loop, this ensures that the chicken stick does not get in your way when you want to hook in again. When hooked in this also prevents any unwanted unhooking from the harness. The chicken-loop, on the other hand, has one of the most all-encompassing optimized diameters.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite



Core Sensor 2+ Bar System - One Bar - 4 Line Lengths: 18m, 20m, 22m, 24m:


The SENSOR 2 bar system is also available in a plus edition. This edition allows four different line lengths to be attached to only one bar. Instead of the standard 24 meter lines, the bar is equipped with VARIO LINES, also manufactured to the highest German standards. The triple segmented line sets consists of an 18 meter base length with two and four meter line extensions.


All segments can be freely combined enabling the SENSOR 2+ bar system to effortlessly be adapted to varying line lengths: 24, 22, 20 and 18 meter. The SENSOR 2+ bar therefore always delivers the right line length – whether it’s freeride, big-air, wave, freestyle or killer kite-loops.
