Not the RPM - The NEW RPM by Slingshot Sports

From Slack to Soar

 

For years, the RPM was fine-tuned to load, pop and go slack in the air before re-engaging. We had the tuning down to a science, and it helped give multiple freestyle world champions their gold medals. Our mission with the 2019 RPM was to change that - not to eliminate anything - but to shift the kite’s tuning to where we see the sport shifting. At the level the RPM is designed for that means bigger, better, loftier in-air performance. From slack to soar, the 2019 RPM is the world’s go-to kite for versatile freeride performance.

 

  • Completely new FlyLine bridle incorporates pulley and bungee for a more direct feel and smoother power delivery in the window. 
  • The Deep-C shape, in the air, gives more overall power, structural stability, hangtime and control. 
  • New Load Shift transfers power and load from wingtip to wingtip resulting in smoother, cleaner, more powerful performance.
  • Bombproof Slingshot engineering and construction, always.

Launching with the new RPM we have three of our go-to twin tips for a range of conditions. For light-wind shenanigans, you can’t beat the Glide; for freestyle, freeriding, boosting, big air and crossover versatility, look no further than the Vision; and for a user-friendly, all-around ride the Crisis will leave you with no worries in the world.

      “The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kite boarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency.
       
      Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind driven supercar in every respect.” - Pete Cabrinha.

      TAKE THE LEAP
      The Hyperlink V2 is the perfect option for anyone taking the leap from inflatable to foil kites.
      It has a rapid inflation thanks to the new valve design and positioning combined with a new internal structure.
      The new drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out.
       

       
      ALL TERRAIN
      With unparalleled stability, lighter weight, improved handling and bar feeling the V2 design takes it to the next level.
      It excels on water, snow and land. Our innovative valve design makes it quick and easy to set up as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.
       

       
      LIGHT & STRONG
      The Hyperlink V2 features an all-new material combination; it's durable, airtight and extremely lightweight.
      The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch.
       

       
      SELF LAND WITH EASE
      The ability to safely self-land a kite on the snow or land is a crucial feature.
      We have completely re-designed the internal structure to incorporate our industry leading Internal Re-Ride Release System.
      This allows the kite to de-power instantly without tangling, and falls to the ground to re-launch when ready.
