Description

Slingshot is proud to introduce its newest member, the Slingshot 2017 RPM. The NEW Slingshot RPM delivers limitless performance options for every condition yet excels at unhooked freestyle riding.

 

Spanning the broad spectrum of users, the RPM is capable of winning multiple world titles as well as appealing to riders of all styles and abilities. From beginners who want a responsive kite with easy relaunch and great depower, to weekend warriors who want to boost big, to world-class competitors like Youri Zoon and Carlos Mario, never before has one kite appealed to so many different types of riders.

 

The RPM’s Open-C Canopy is a proven shape that has spawned an entire category of kites. For general freeriding, it provides responsive handling, smooth power delivery throughout the window, great boosting ability and powerful but predictable loops. For dedicated freestyle and wakestyle, the RPM’s shape delivers amazing load and pop, smooth pull, massive carry and flawless unhooked performance. 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 2017 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 2017 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.

 

Slingshot RPM 2017 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".

 

Open "C" Kite Design Platform:
Blends the best C kite performance characteristics like power, stability, edging and control with, bow, hybrid, and delta performance characteristics like depower, range, speed, water relaunchability and boosting. The result is increased usability and ultimate versatility in every condition performance. The open C platform, is the only bridled kite design that allows depower control at the bar, or by “prying” your kite to the edge of the window like a true C kite. This benefit truly enhances the park and ride flying style used by so many top pro’s!

 

3-Strut Design:
The RPM is the first kite to break 5 strut design barrier. Its “Open C” canopy design and Full Suspension Bridle create a canopy bridle synergy that liberated our designers need to build structure in the kite with struts. The RPM is the leader in 3 strut design. Its proven benefits include significant weight reduction, an intuitive feel, superior water relaunch and massive boost with increased hang time. There is also a common belief with the pro’s that less struts makes the kite more compact and packable. This makes the RPM the preferred globe trotting kite.

 

The Slingshot RPM offers limitless performance options for surf and flat water excelling at unhooked freestyle riding.

Reviews

One of the greatest! Adam Frenzel

 

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.
