Slingshot SST 2019 Kite

From: £659.00

The 2019 Slingshot SST means surf, foiling, freeride freedom. Carve upwind for miles to find the best swell, slash harder than riders half your age, then dash downwind, swap your surfboard for a foil and do it all over again.

Design details

SUPERIOR SURF PERFORMANCE

Sizes: 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 12m

The magic of the 2019 Slingshot SST is in its amazing drift and responsive handling, even when depowered, sheeted out and drifting downwind. Where any other kite would barely steer at all, or fall out of the sky, the Slingshot SST drifts like a feather remaining quick and reactive at the bar, almost as if it knows what you’re going to do before you do it.

FEATURES:

  • Superior surf and foil performance
  • Drifts like a dream
  • Reinforced surf-tough construction built to take a pounding
  • Responsive steering, even when sheeted out or drifting downwind
  • Condensed IRS bridle won’t wrap around wingtips

The 2019 Slingshot SST is fine-tuned to fly deeper in the window than most kites. This, combined with the kite’s shape and bridle setup, yields hero-level downwind drift and steering response even when tension on the lines is minimal. It’s the park-and-ride performance that you dream about. It pulls you into position, drifts with you like a shadow, then re-engages at the flick of a wrist. To better hold up to the surf, the 2019 SST features reinforced surf-tough canopy paneling designed to take a beating if it goes through the wash and a condensed version of our IRS bungee that cannot get wrapped around the wingtips.
