Slingshot RPM 2011

Online Catalogue | Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing | Kiteboarding Kites (Water/LEI) | Slingshot Water Kiteboard Kites LEI Bow Classic | Slingshot Kiteboarding Kitesurf Kites 2011 |  Slingshot RPM 2011

Slingshot RPM 2011 Overview

We're proud to announce the 2011 Slingshot RPM. The RPM is changing kiteboarding with its innovative 3 strut Open C Canopy design. It delivers limitless high end performance options for all conditions. Excel your riding regardless of your style. The RPM is the one kite that allows for top performance while executing un-hooked freestyle, wakestyle and surf style. It's also the first and only non C kite to take a PKRA championship podium finish ever.

The 2011 RPM takes all of the features of the proven RPM kite that we have come to know and love and adds a few new features to make this the #1 kite at XLKITES. The RPM is slated as a performance freestyle kite, but it is a great kite for beginners too. The stability, wind range, key safety features on the bar make this one of the most well rounded kites on the market. Oh yeah... power, big air, un-hooked, surf, the RPM has that locked down too.

One of the main additions to the 3 strut RPM for 2011 is Split Strut construction. This means that the canopy is integrated into the struts to make the canopy significantly stronger with out adding weight. Seems like a small improvement on paper, but on the water the feel of the kite is a lot more solid. Adding split strut to the RPM has increased the top and bottom end of the wind range, better relaunch, more crisp turning and better boosting.

The RPM is great in the surf or flatwater and great for intermediate or advanced riders with enough control for beginners to use for thier transision into an intermediate rider.

-Slingshot Open-C Design platform Blends core C kite performance like power, stability, edging, control and direct connect with the advantages of the latest advancements in 4-line technology. Which includes depower, range, safety, simple re-launch and hang time.

-Split Strut Integrated 3 strut design Light and crisp in the sky. With maximum durability, increased canopy stability and shaping control. It also packs down tight!

-New size Addition to the standard sizing the new 9m will optimize quiver building and who else wouldn’t want a 9m.

-“NEW” Full Suspension Bridle Pushes front tow points towards wing tips to create feel and tuning characteristics similar to C-kite. Allows for smooth responsive steering and power delivery. Clean and tight to the leading edge to maximize performance.

-Progressive Power steering Each kite comes with custom line lengths that synchronize rider and kite to match every wind condition.

-Slingshot 1-Pump The trusted original single point inflation system to get you out faster and easier.

-Low Profile Wing Tips Increases turning speed, while reducing drag and creating more efficiency.
