FUEL BRIDLE CONFIGURATION
Slingshot have brought back the classic four-line configuration for the 2017 Fuel, eliminating the optional Nitrous bridle system that was included with the 2016-16 Fuel and adding a leading edge attachment point for riders who prefer a fifth-line setup.

TRADITIONAL-C
The original shape that started it all. The foundation of Slingshot's entire kite line, the Traditional-C provides consistent grunt and stability through the power stroke. This shape is also designed to boost, loop and predictably recover.
