FLYLINE BRIDLE SYSTEM
In the words of the Slingshot designers, the new Flyline bridle is like power steering for your kite. The pulleys allow the tow points on each side of the kite to travel as the kite turns through the window, while the bungees restrict the length of travel to maintain optimum structural support no matter what direction the kite is flying. This means both sides of the kite are engaged at all times, rather than one side or the other, depending on which way the kite is flying. For the rider, this translates to a smoother, more dynamic kite with not only more power but more depower and structural stability.

The FLYLINE Bridle also changes the geometry of the Slinshot RPM’s canopy in flight. With different bridle attachments (tow points), the 2019 RPM has a slightly deeper C shape in the air and more structural stability. This gives the kite bigger boosting, longer drift and more powerful loops, while maintaining the range, depower and all-conditions versatility the RPM is synonymous for.

ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
This dramtically reduces inflation time so you can have more time where it matters: the water.

SPLITSTRUT
Another first by Slingshot: strut integration right into the kites canopy rather than being hung. This integration improves overall kite rigidity and allows for lighter weight struts which mean a more aerodynamic frame.

NEW OPEN C PROFILE
This new profile will lend itself to a tighter turning radius, more efficient low end grunt, bigger loftier jumps and more depower at the bar.

NEW STRIKING GRAPHICS
Built to stand out on the beach. Slingshot has never been one to conform, with these new graphics every rider on the beach will know where and who you are.
