Slingshot RPM 2016 Kite

From: £467.00

The 2016 Slingshot RPM is the flagship kite on Slingshot’s legendary lineup, loaded with exciting and innovative features that will again place this kite at the top of the food chain and uphold its reputation as one of the most versatile and rock solid kites ever produced.

Design details

The Slingshot RPM comes equipped with the proven Intuitive Response System (IRS) bridle system for 2016, which gives riders a more fluid connection to the kite and gives the kite improved stability and smoother, more reactive performance.

In addition to the industry-leading IRS bridle, the 2016 RPM features upgrades to its already bombproof construction, including a tougher, more durable diamond leech trailing edge and a new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These upgrades complement Slingshot’s proprietary tri-tech protection, making this one of the toughest, most durable kites on the market. Also returning to the 2016 RPM is an upgraded One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.

Sizes: 4.5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 11m, 12m, 14m
