The Slingshot RPM Kite was built for riders looking for a kite which performances within multiple riding styles and conditions. The RPM crosses over from freestyle, to surf, to wakestyle or snow with ease. Top Pros and high performance riders world wide have figured out the secret behind the RPM, the open C platform allows for fast riding, explosive pop with the correct amount of boost, travel and drift. This allow for aggressive moves with fast and solid landings.
The 2014 builds on Slingshot's proven legacy with a kite that rides faster, is more responsive, more crisp and more dialed in than ever before. Through years of testing and rider feedback, they have made new improvements and subtle refinements to set a new standard for performance and durability. Now with Diamond Leech technology that improves air flow for clean air release off the trailing edge. This feature improves aerodynamics, and is a major part of why the kite is faster, and has a new crisp feel. The Diamond Leech improved the over all stability of the leach. This significantly helps with wear and tear or flutter.
OPEN C DESIGN PLATFORM: First to blend 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 relaunch and hang time.
SPLIT-STRUT INTEGRATED DESIGN: Three split-struts integrate the strut and canopy into a unified wing creating a light, stable, and more durable kite. Enhanced skin tension locks the designed air foil in place and reduces distortion under heavy load.
