Slingshot Turbine 2016 Kite
The 2016 Slingshot Turbine redefines the meaning of light-wind kiting. With its Open Delta C profile, five-point cascading bridle system, mini-strut technology and optimised aspect ratio and leading edge diameter, the 2016 Slingshot Turbine will not only get you out kiting in winds as low as five knots, but you’ll have a blast doing it.
The combination of critical design characteristics favours ultimate efficiency and optimised control and handling, giving the 2016 Slingshot Turbine its renowned low-end power and grunt while maintaining the turning speed and efficiency that makes it the king of light-wind performance.
Back by popular demand for 2016, the Turbine is offered in two sizes- 15 and 17 meter- to give riders the freedom and flexibility to fine tune their light-wind weapon of choice.
- The 15 meter is designed for lighter or more efficient riders, surfboard riders, foilers and slightly stronger winds
- The 17 meter has the ultimate low-end range and a bit more power.

TURBINE 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
