The Slingshot Sports RPM Kite is Slingshot's flagship-freestyle crossover kite boasting legendary performance and durability. From beginners who want a responsive kite with easy relaunch, to warriors of the sport who are looking to boost big, the RPM carries the reputation of appealing to so many different riders. The Open-C canopy of the RPM provides the perfect combination of explosive power and pop, solid unhooked riding and high-performance handling with user-friendly characteristics help improve yours kiteboarding experience.

The RPM is packed with technical features to make the kite even more bombproof. The trailing edge is controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material to decrease flutter and increase durability, while the durable split strut construction and strategically placed Kevlar scuff guards prevent shock-absorbing IRS bridle rub on the trailing edges of the RPM.

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
