At Slingshot our philosophy has always been based on fun. Our goal is to design gear that will get you on the water in any riding condition. The 2015 Turbine creates a new definition for what is ride able by getting you up and going in wind speeds as low as 5-6 knots. We attribute the range and versatility of the 2015 Turbine to our proven Open Delta C platform and our 5-point cascading bridle attachment system. This critical combination creates a consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke along with direct bar input. Proven improvements include an aspect ratio and reduced LE diameter that work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing turning speed, efficiency or upwind performance.
The Turbine has our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five-strut kite. It achieves the same benefits in the air with no hassles on the beach.
Customer satisfaction and feedback from our larger Turbine riders has been so positive we added a new 15 meter! The smaller Turbine is designed for light to medium weight riders or riders that are very efficient. The Turbine 15 combined with our new foil board is a deadly combination in the lightest of wind.
PACKAGE INCLUDES: Turbine Kite, Kite Backpack, Bladder Repair Kit, Quick-Start Guide, Pump Hose with One Pump Speed Valve Adapter.
For years, the RPM was fine-tuned to load, pop and go slack in the air before re-engaging. We had the tuning down to a science, and it helped give multiple freestyle world champions their gold medals. Our mission with the 2019 RPM was to change that - not to eliminate anything - but to shift the kite’s tuning to where we see the sport shifting.
The purebred geometry promotes a potent forward-flying experience across a massive wind range allowing riders to commit to more critical moves more of the time. Unhooked, the Razor continues its forward attack giving Blitzkrieg pop and big travel for air passes. Back in the loop, insane vertical boosts are there for those that like to ‘send it’. Powered up wave riders will revel in deeper cutbacks, bigger lip smacks and more radical turns. Compatible with any current Ocean Rodeo bar, the Razor features our Direct Depower system for security in all situations.
Touted as the most versatile and user-friendly kite in Slingshot’s lineup, the Rally has continued its dramatic rise to the top since introduced to the market in 2011. Available in sizes 5-12 and 14 so kiters can build their perfect quiver, the 2016 Rally incorporates an open Delta-C profile, a direct-connect pulley-less bridal system, beefed-up surf-tough seams, fine-tuning attachment points and a number of other unique feathers to make this the ultimate all-around weapon of choice for kiters across the spectrum. Never before has one kite appealed to so many different styles of riding.
Updates to the 2016 Rally include relocated attachment points and a slight change in geometry, which increase handling and steering speed, reduce bar pressure and bring back a feel similar to the popular 2012 version. These updates compliment the Rally’s unrivaled wind range, low-end power, hang time, upwind performance and, bombproof construction that has kept Slingshot at the leading edge of the industry for the last 15 years.
Slingshot’s 2016 kites come with our new One Pump Speed System*, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.
