The Slingshot Sports RPM Kite is guaranteed to take your riding to the next level. A proven, versatile design for all types of riding, the RPM is an excellent option for assertive entry-level riders who want a safe kite with great depower and easy relaunch, while more experienced kiters will appreciate its lofty airs, big boosts, and powerful but controlled loops. The RPM is loaded with innovative features and one of the most versatile, rock solid kites ever produced.

The RPM is the original Open-C kite that started the entire category. It’s a proven shape that we created and others copied. The Open-C is an extremely versatile shape that provides the perfect combination of explosive power, big boosts, solid unhooked riding and high-performance handling.

In addition to the industry-leading IRS bridle, the RPM features a strong, durable diamond leech trailing edge and a DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. Also, the RPM is an upgraded One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster with less energy than before.These upgrades complement Slingshot’s proprietary tri-tech protection, making this one of the toughest, most durable kites on the market.

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 - 7 meters), while the 23-inch bar comes stock with 27 meter lines and is recommended for larger kites (usually 13 - 17 meters).

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
