WAVE SST characteristics:
When we introduced the WAVE SST last year, we received immediate and overwhelmingly positive feedback from advanced kite surfers around the world. The WAVE SST is amazing, people said, it tracks magically downwind, turns on a dime and maintains a responsive feel even when fully sheeted out. These are the most sought-after characteristics of a surf-specific kite, and the 2017 WAVE SST is packed with the same great features that made it an instant hit. After a year in the market, we also discovered foilers were gravitating to this kite for freeriding. Performance traits found in a good wave kite are also sought out by people who know freeride foiling. For 2017 we’re releasing more sizes to include a full range (4-10 meter and 12 meter) so kiters can set themselves up with the perfect quiver.
WAVE SST rider profile:
You will love the WAVE SST if you’re a dedicated kitesurfer, foiler or directional rider looking for a kite with unrivaled stability, serious downwind drift and unbelievable turning characteristics throughout the power zone.

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.
The Zephyr allows me to ride when I should be mowing the grass, but I need my fix. Call me crazy, but I love to learn new unhooked tricks on the Zephyr in light winds. It pulls like a boat, remains stable when you miss a pass not looping you off down the beach. When you blow a trick and the kite ends up on the water, it still amazes me that it relaunches effortlessly even in sub 10 knot winds! If you dial a trick on a 17m you’re away laughing once the wind picks up and you’re throwing down on your 10m C4. Cruise around, run a muck… spray some paddle boarders, you know the saying… Historically big kites didn’t loop, the Zephyr has got this sorted without the need for troublesome pulleys. If you’re out there and the wind picks up, no worries, continue to load that rail and boost some air. Long live the stylish boned out snowboard grabs. Enjoy that extra loft and chuck in a vert-skating board off > Hugh Pinfold – Ozone Products Designer.
The Edge has easily has proven its pedigree over the past three seasons, it is the kite to own if you are searching for ultimate performance. Robbie has worked his magic to design what is the undisputed Champion when it comes to performance for Kite Course Racing. But the real magic for me is the fact the Edge is a joy to ride for any solid kiter that is looking for the ultimate boosting machine. If ripping upwind higher than you ever thought possible and reaching near orbit on your boosts is what you want then look no further > Matt Taggart: Ozone Kites Manager.
The Obsession is an exciting performance driven machine. This kite exceles at the freestyle dicipline but is user friendly and easy enought for the novice to use. It's a kite that will grow with you as you become a more compitent kiter. The Obsession is by far our number #1 seller because of its versatility and solid performance. It is known for its low end power, making it a perfect kite for lighter areas. It's relaunch is fantastic keeping it off the water and in the sky. This leads to more progressive sessions and may keep out of a sticky situation. If you are getting into kiteboarding to get some air, look no further then the 2015 RRD Obsession. This thing jumps huge! Not only does it boost big, but it has an awesome amount of hangtime. There is nothing quite as exhilarating as soaring above the water.
