The new Slingshot Rally 2016 kite is the ultimate all-around choice for kiters who want to do it all. Whether you want to cruise all-day-long, do big floaty jumps, unhook freestyle, or wave ride, the 2016 Slingshot Rally is the most versatile and user-friendly kite in Slingshot’s lineup.
Available in sizes 5-12 and 14 so you can build your perfect quiver, the 2016 Rally incorporates an open Delta-C profile, a direct-connect pulley-less bridal system, surf-tough seams, and fine-tuning attachment points.
Updates to the 2016 Rally include:
- Relocated attachment points
- Change in geometry.
These improvements increase handling & steering speed, reduce bar pressure, and bring back a feel similar to the popular 2012 version. Combine this with the Rally’s huge wind range, low-end power, hang time, upwind performance, and bombproof construction... never before has one kite appealed to so many different styles of riding.
All of 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.

RALLY FEATURES + TECH
|OPEN DELTA C
Blends the C kite performance traits of raw power and direct feel, with the latest advancements in 4 line Delta technology. Resulting in maximized wind range, excellent upwindability, and big hang time, plus quick re-launch, and easy depower for safety.
Steering lines are connected directly to the forward “sweet spot” geometry of the kite. Now with three settings to micro-tune your bar pressure and turning speed preference.
|ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
Dramatically reduces inflation effort and time during setup, as well as making for a faster, easier, hassle-free deflation of the kite.
Splitstrut integrates the strut and canopy into one rigid wing creating a lighter, stable and more durable kite. This construction is proven to enhance power delivery under heavy load and creates efficiency in the overall frame.
Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth, and Neoprene. Individual scuff guards, strategically placed in the most vulnerable areas of the kite to optimise durability.
|SURF TOUGH SEAMS
Sets the standard for minimising and containing canopy tears. Now with improved, reinforced trailing edge durability.
Reduces flutter and aids canopy stability to maximize efficiency while still allowing the trailing edge to open and flex.
|PULLEY- LESS BRIDLE
Direct feel and precise control, with no lag time, delivers enhanced responsiveness and unmatched upwind performance. No pulley maintenance required.
|DP 175 DACRON
DP 175 Dacron is a high tenacity, high modulus material that is extremely resistant to bias stretch and retains its structure. That’s why we incorporate this material in every strut and leading edge we build.
Protects the wing tips and leading edge against wear
