Product Description

The Turbine has proven that if you want to stay on the water and still have fun in 5-6 knots, your kite has to be light. We’ve had hard core freestyle riders like Eric Rienstra hitting kickers with next to no wind, riders in coastal swell shredding from dawn to dusk and local freeride guys who have the Gorge all to themselves long after everyone else has gone home - all on the Turbine.

Our progressive “Open Delta C” design geometry, makes it more efficient and faster in light wind much like a high performance glider or wind turbine wing, improving lift through kite speed and allowing the Turbine to fly farther forward in the window. In the wing tips, Free-Twist Tip Technology increases the narrow wind range of a large kites by positioning the bridal attachment points to let the wingtips freely pivot. This allows the trailing edge leech panel to open and twist when overpowered to prevent stall in light wind. The result is a lighter, faster feel with a wide apparent wind range and quick turning radius for such a large kite.

Complete Package Includes: Turbine Kite, Compstick Control Bar , Kite Backpack, Bladder Repair Kit , Quick-Start Guide

INTERMEDIATE TO EXPERT FREERIDE, LIGHT WIND, SURF AND COURSE RACING:

Riders who want to extend their time on the water, and demand light wind performance.

AUTO-TRIM TRAILING EDGE:

Automatically reduces oversheeting and virtually eliminates backstalling while still allowing the panels to open and flex.

PROGRESSIVE “OPEN DELTA-C” DESIGN PROFILE:

The higher aspect ratio improves lift through kite speed instead of angle of attack. The new geometry allows the kite to fly forward in the window, frees up the wingtips and prevents the kite from oversheeting.

SPLIT STRUT INTEGRATED 3 STRUT DESIGN:

Light and crisp in the sky with added durability, increased stability and canopy shaping control. Less struts and lighter profile will enable better water re launch in light winds. Packs down tight!

IMPROVED POWER STEERING BRIDLE:

Allows for smooth responsive steering, power delivery and adds more support to the wingtip. Clean and tight to the leading edge to maximize performance and lightens up the bar pressure. No pulleys!

CONNECT FORWARD:

A single point steering line that is connected directly to the “sweet spot” geometry of the kite. Optimal for plug and play convenience and performance.

TRI-TECH PROTECTION:

Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth, and Neoprene. Individual scuff guards, strategically placed in the most vulnerable areas of the kite to optimize durability.

FREE-TWIST TIP TECHNOLOGY:

Free pivot wingtips act as a natural governor and twist open automatically to extend the apparent wind range.

WING TIP STRUTS:

Conical taper shape for low drag and efficient control.

SLINGSHOT ONE PUMP:

The trusted, original Slingshot patented single point inflation system to get you out faster and easier.

LEGENDARY SLINGSHOT CONSTRUCTION - KITE:

Long lasting durability and performance by using only the latest new high tech materials in our LE, canopy, bladders and finish trim materials.

LOW PROFILE WING TIPS:

Proven to increase turning speed, while reducing drag and creating more efficiency.
