Slingshot Fuel 2016 Kite
The new Slingshot Fuel 2016 kite continues the legendary line of explosive C-kite performance for hard-charging kiters. Slingshot has refined the Fuel’s bomb proof construction and traditional-C design over the years, making this the go-to kite for riders looking for aggressive grunt, unhooked authority, power, boost, and insane looping capabilities.
In 2016 Slingshot have continued with the well-received detachable four-point Nitrous bridal system introduced
last year. This new addition, along three customisation settings - Mega Loop, Freestyle and Freeride - gives riders increased flexibility and freedom in how the kite performs. When installed (the bridal comes factory installed but can be easily removed), the Nitrous system delivers explosive pop, massive hangtime, and increased range and de-power.
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.
