Description

Details

Both stable and predictable, the Slingshot Wave SST Kite perfectly balances the extremes of responsiveness and drift. This kite is built for the dedicated kitesurfer, foiler or directional rider looking for a kite with unrivaled stability, serious downwind drift and unbelievable turning characteristics throughout the power zone. When introduced last year, the Wave SST received immediate and overwhelmingly positive feedback from advanced kite surfers around the world. Packed with the same great features that made it an instant hit , the 2017 Wave SST tracks magically downwind, turns on a dime and maintains a responsive feel even when fully sheeted out.

This season the WAVE SST features a Compact-C canopy profile and a condensed version of Slingshot’s popular shock-absorbing IRS bridle system. The combination of canopy geometry and bridle configuration results in a kite that flies deep in the window, in the sweet spot for surf-specific performance. Two main features that make the WAVE SST such an amazing surf kite are: How well it drifts downwind and how quickly it can pivot even when you’re depowered, sheeted out or moving toward the kite. These characteristics also make the WAVE an ideal kite for foiling. The WAVE SST is extremely robust, taking Slingshot’s bomber surf-tough standards a step farther, with a special Surf Grid panel layout that adds strength and durability to the canopy, and a condensed bridle setup. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester ripstop canopy material, which decreases trailing edge flutter and increases durability. An added reinforcement to the one-pump inflation valve’s connection to the bladder helps prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/ detachment.

For 2017 Slingshot released more sizes to include a full range (4-10 meter and 12 meter) so kiters can set themselves up with the perfect quiver.

OPTIONAL CONTROL BAR SYSTEM

Slingshot has given the Slingshot Sports Compstick Control Bar a fresh new visual presence, and have carried over improvements to the floats, grips, redesigned bar ends and safety leash that were implemented in the previous model. There are options of either above the bar action with the Compstick Sentinel or below the bar performance with the Compstick Guardian. Both Compsticks come in 17, 20 and 23-inch bar options. The 17-inch bar comes stock with 20 meter lines and is recommended only for small kites (usually 4-7meters). The 23-inch bar comes stock with 27 meter lines and is recommended for larger kites (usually 13-17meters).

The Compstick Sentinel features an above-the-bar trim cleat, a swiveling safety mechanism below the bar and all the other features that have made the Compstick Sentinel the trusted choice for riders around the world, year after year.

  • Above the Bar Moveable Trim Block
  • Sentinel Safety System
  • Spin-To-Win Untwist Mechanism
  • Non-Slip EVA Grip
  • Redesigned Molded Floats
  • Bungee Line-Keepers
  • Improved Float Storage
  • Dual Oh-Shit Handles
  • Precision Cut 800 LB Flying LInes
  • Surefire Clutch

With the Compstick Guardian, the trim cleat is located just above the chicken loop and is integrated into the safety release mechanism. The result is a streamline system that removes eye-level components, placing them within easy reach below the bar and allowing for more throw above the bar.

  • Easy Reach Depower
  • Guardian Safety System
  • Auto-Spin Swivel
  • Active Stopper Ball
  • Ride Simplicity
  • Padded Bar Ends With Bungee Line-Keepers
  • Redesigned Molded Floats
  • Improved Float Storage
  • Non-Slip EVA Grip
  • Dual Oh-Shit Handles
  • Precision Cut 800 LB Flying LInes
