For general freeriding, it provides responsive handling, smooth power delivery throughout the window, great boosting ability and powerful but predictable loops.

No matter what category you fall into, the RPM will improve your entire kiteboarding experience.
The Slingshot's RPM Intuitive Response System (IRS) Bridle – replaces the bridle pulleys with a low-profile bungee setup that improved steering speed, response and general high-end performance. Feedback on the IRS Bridle was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. The 2018 RPM comes equipped with the same system, giving riders a more fluid connection to the kite and gives the kite improved stability and smoother, more reactive performance.
The new 2018 builds on the proven legacy with a kite that rides faster, is more responsive, more crisp and more dialled in than ever before. Through years of testing and rider feedback, Slingshot have made new improvements and subtle refinements to set a new standard for performance and durability.
Other improvements include Slingshot's awesome construction with an all new diamond leech trailing edge construction and new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These added features compliment Slingshot's proprietary tri-tech protection making this the most durable RPM ever.
Discover what the pros already know. The RPM is the one kite that allows for top performance while executing un-hooked freestyle, wakestyle and surf style.
RPM 2018 Intuituve Response Bridle System:
The Intuitive Response System (IRS) is a new revolutionary pulley-less bridle system that combines a “Direct Drive Bridle” and a “Suspension Displacement Bridle.” The combination of these two advancements act as a shock absorption system and distribute tension properly to where it’s needed; much like a shock would do for a bike or car suspension system
The new IRS Bridle is a bungee system that not only eliminates pulleys, but also eliminates the 'lag time' that results from the pulley having to travel fore and aft along the bridle line. Riders will notice a huge improvement in the kite’s stability with immediate and smooth feedback.
One-Pump Speed System:
Slingshot introduces the all-new “One Pump Speed System.” You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation time so you get on the water even faster and with less effort than before.
Rear CFI Attachment Points:
Truly customized kite performance for riding style and conditions. Most rear attachment point translates to less bar pressure, faster turning and easier relaunch. More forward attachment point translates to more pressure and overall kite "feel".
Kite Design Platform:
The RPM is built for riders like you. You want safety, reliability and predictability in all wind conditions? You want high performance and low risk? You want a kite that won’t hold you back, no matter how much you progress? You want a kite you can count on when conditions get gnarly, when your friends challenge you to a jump-off or when you’re bound and determined to take that next step in progression, whatever that may be? If that is you, your kite is the RPM.

First impressions powerful, smooth, quick, responsive, huge jumps, riding unhooked is a dream. when riding unhooked the kite stays in the centre of the wind window and does not move forward and de-power as many other kites do.
It is very predictable, the power from the kite is strong yet doesn't overpower as the below the bar de-power is extremely efficient. the turning speed is incredible and smooth power the whole way.
The kite itself is very strong and the lines are easy to set up as the ends correspond with what attachment is on the kite which Ilove as it is easy to set up correctly first time.
Conditions I have rode in have been gusty and strong some times but the wind range on the kite makes it easy to fly in lighter winds as well as strong.
This is one of the greatest kites I have flown
and would recommend it to anyone asking me what kite to get.
