Top Pros and high performance riders world wide know the secret behind the RPM. The open C platform allows for fast riding, explosive pop with the correct amount of boost, travel and drift. This allow for aggressive moves with fast and solid landings. The new 2014 builds on our proven legacy with a kite that rides faster, is more responsive, more crisp and more dialed in than ever before. Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made new improvements and subtle refinements to set a new standard for performance and durability. Our new “Diamond Leech” technology improves air flow for “clean” air release off the trailing edge. This feature improves aerodynamics, and is a major part of why the kite is faster, and has a new crisp feel. The Diamond Leech improved the over all stability of the leach. This significantly helps with wear and tear or flutter. The full suspension bridle was updated with a new anodized aluminum frictionless pulley. The design has reduced weight, and eliminated wear associated with mechanical pulleys.We added an 11M kite to our full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver.
Open C Design Platform First to blend core C kite performance like power, stability, edging, control and direct connect with the advantages of the latest advancements in 4-line technology. Which includes depower, range, safety, simple relaunch and hang time.
Splitstrut Integrated Design Split-strut integrates the strut and canopy into a unified wing creating a light, stable and more durable kite. Enhanced skin tension locks the designed airfoil in place and reduces distortion under heavy load.
Modified Bridle Attachment Points Fine tuned to optimize power, feel and turning characteristics similar to a C-kite. Designed to work directly with our Full Suspension Bridle, Gaurdian and Compstick control bar.
New Diamon Leach A new reinforced real panel layout, providing a cleaner release for better aerodynamics.
Updated Progressive Steering Each kite comes with custom attachment points that enable the rider to tune bar pressure based on personal riding preference. This year we have refined them even more to create a smoother curve between settings.
New Frictionless Pully System Anondized aluminum frictionless pulley that allows for smooth and consistent travel on bridle line.
Low Profile Wings Tips Proven to increase turning speed, while reducing drag and creating more efficiency.
Tri-Tech Protection Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth, and Neoprene. Individual scuff guards, strategically placed in the most vulnerable areas of the kite to optimize durability.
New Size (11m) Quiver Builder Optimizing quiver-building potential, we added an 11-meter size to the RPM lineup.
Dimension-Polyant Dacron Leading Edge and Strut Material DP 175 is the undisputed leader in Dacron quality. Proven by our top pro’s in the most demanding conditions year after year.
Legendary Slingshot Construction Long lasting durability and performance by using only the latest new high tech materials in our LE, canopy,bladders and finish trim materials.
