Slingshot Turbine 2018 Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
Complete with FREE Slingshot PUMP:
The number one way to increase your time on the water is by extending what conditions make kiteboarding fun. The Slingshot Turbine 2018 can be combined with a Competition Race board, surf board or a lightwind specific Glide board for mind blowing speed, power, upwind and downwind performance.
First and foremost, the Turbine is a high-powered shape with more pull per size than any other kite in Slingshot's lineup. The high aspect ratio performs like a wing in the air - jumps are long and lofty, loops are slow and deep through the window, pull is steady and powerful and the upwind drive and low-end efficiency is as good as you can get before transitioning to a foil kite.
As you go down in size and up in wind speed, the Turbine’s power and efficiency translate to an advanced freeride kite with long, loft airs, aggressive upwind drive and pull. Whether you’re in it for a mellow cruise in a light ocean breeze or you’re an experienced kiter looking for a completely different flying experience, the Turbine will not disappoint.
With its Open Delta C profile, five-point cascading bridle system, mini-strut technology and optimized aspect ratio and leading edge diameter, the 2018 Turbine will not only get you out kiting in winds as low as five knots, but you’ll have a blast doing it.
All the same qualities that make the Turbine such a great light wind kite translate to an aggressive, high-power, high-performance weapon as you go down in size and up in wind speed.
17, 19 Metre: The proven light wind kite of choice for riders of all abilities. The Turbine’s high-aspect, high-efficiency profile gets you out and riding when others watch from the shore hoping for the wind to pick up.
This combination of critical design characteristics favours ultimate efficiency and optimized control and handling, giving the Turbine its renowned low-end power and grunt while maintaining the turning speed and efficiency that makes it the king of light-wind 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.
The Slingshot Turbine 2018 is changing kiteboarding with its innovative 3 strut “Open Delta-C” Canopy design, delivering a limitless high end performance options for all conditions. Excel your riding regardless of your style.
The kite has a great low and high end range. It has explosive pop for unhooked tricks. It has massive boost so for double handle passes or powered kite loops and the new 2018 refinements shine with increased stability, and forgiveness. Relaunching is also fast and effortless.
Other highlights of the Slingshot Turbine include its one-pump inflation, great low and high-end range, easy relaunch, an even pull, solid stability, adjustable bar pressure and smooth and fast turns.
