This is a thoroughbred competition wakestyle kite designed for unhooked tricks. Its five strut deep C-Shape and five line setup are designed to give you the beautiful line slack needed by wake style riders. All of Cores German engineering genius had been pumped into this kite such as CoreTex triple ripstop and ExoTex Dacron meaning that this kite can take the beating that inevitably happen when going for adrenaline pumped powered wake style moves.
The DEEP-C SHAPE has slightly longer tips than the GTS3 meaning a more classical C-shape. As such, expect a consistent, uniform pull through your rotations and transitions so you can focus on your moves and not the kite’s.
The CLASSIC-C TIPS connects lines directly to the square wingtip provides the direct connection you demand and the “slack lining” you expect from a true C-kite.
A 5 LINE SETUP means no bridles or pulleys. Just simple and direct line connections to the kite. Feel where your kite is when you are blind.
The 5 STRUT FRAME exoskeleton is a critical component in the Impact design to control and stabilize the kite during kite rotations. Stability creates predictable kite behavior when you need it most. Don’t compromise. Go with 5.
EXOTEX is a new asymmetrical Dacron weave and emulsion (protective coating) process is specifically developed for our exoskeleton frames to prevent bulging, ripping and UV degradation. The no stretch fabric also improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, our new ExoTex fabric upgrades frame stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback.
CORETEX TRIPLE RIPSTOP fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation.
ACTIVE 5TH LINE SAFETY line always remains perfectly tensioned regardless of the trim adjuster cleat setting. For a perfect flight profile.
