What we like:
The GTS2 is a great contender for riders looking to ride waves and do unhooked freestyle. A lot of our team here in Cape Hatteras like to bounce between those two disciplines and we have found that the GTS2 is a great option for those riders. The unhooked performance is better than the XR3
(better pop & more slack in the air) and this kite is also great fun for hooked in tricks and kite loops.
Unsurprisingly, it's speed and performance also make the GTS2 a great option for the waves too. If you need a bigger kite to ride waves in lighter wind - the 12m GTS 2 is a seriously good choice.
The GTS2 doesn't have the same amount depower or bar throw as the XR3
. Controlling the amount of power on offer with this kite also requires solid edge control so beginner riders would definitely be a better fit for the XR3
. Overall though the wind range and depower are excellent for a kite that very closely resembles a c - kite.
We found that the standard tuning made the kite back-stall a bit so you may need to retune your gear or pull on a bit of depower to get the perfect tuning.
Why you want the Core GTS2:
Because you are hunting for the elusive combo of unhooked tricks and wave riding and want one kite that can do both. The GTS2 works well for both and is up there with the BEST TS, Liquid Force ENVY, Slingshot RPM & Naish Park as a kite that advanced riders will love.
The new GTS2 is the most radical kite that CORE has ever built.
Yet it remains a true All-in-One kite thanks to the revolutionary 'Future-C' Shape. Simply put, it's a kite that can do everything: big airs, powerful wave riding and radical kiteloops, both hooked and unhooked.
The improvement of the original GTS proved a tough nut to crack for the CORE development team. The GTS2 took over 2 years to develop, and created a new kite concept, the 'Future-C'. This shape intelligently combines all the advantages of both a 'C' and a 'High Depower' kite. Without compromise.
