Slingshot Turbine 2013 Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
The number one way to increase your time on the water is by extending what conditions make kiteboarding fun. The Slingshot Turbine 2013 can be combined with a Competition Race board, surf boards or a lightwind specific Glide board for mind blowing speed, power, upwind and downwind performance.
When you want to stay on the water and still have fun in 5-6 knots, you have to be light. To save weight, Slingshot started with a new bladder material that is 25% lighter, reduced the leading edge diameter and introduced a smaller strut size. To make it more efficient and faster in light wind, Slingshot have increased the aspect ratio much like on a glider or wind turbine wing. This improves lift through kite speed and allows it to fly further forward in the window. The bottom line is this kite increases your riding time and gets you off the beach when there’s not a whitecap in sight.
This kite increases the fun factor and time on the low end of the wind range. The Slingshot Turbine is the perfect example of the way we build, the way we ride and the way we live. It's Slingshot's commitment to the core!
