The Slingshot RPM has been and will continue to be Slingshot's premium and bombproof all-round freestyle kite. Championed by their pro riders Sam Light, Alex Fox, Youri Zoon and Carlos Mario the RPM was thrust into the limelight as soon as possible. This kite is capable of powerful lifts, with an enourmous amount of low end grunt which allows the kite to be used in lower wind with good performance before having to switch down to a smaller kite.
This kite is great for both advanced riders who are looking to push their freestyle ability forward progressively or a new rider who is looking to step into the freestyle scene and grow into a kite that will allow for this style of riding.
The major features on this kite are the IRS Bridle which allows for use of the kite in gusty conditions without having to manage all of the bumps manually. This bridle which was introduced last year is the equivalent of a suspension system for the kite itself.
The RPM for 2016 has a little higher wind range and will turn the corners slightly faster. In addition to this a new Dacron 175 material is used to make the leading edge even more durable, the One Pump Speed System will allow for less time pumping the kite up and more time flying it.
The legend continues with the 2016 RPM: The renowned all-around weapon of choice for world champion tricksters, soul-searching surfers and casual weekend-warriors alike. Returning as the flagship kite on Slingshot’s legendary lineup, the 2016 RPM is loaded with exciting and innovative features that will again place this kite at the top of the food chain and uphold its reputation as one of the most versatile and rock solid kites ever produced.
Last year Slingshot introduced the Intuitive Response System (IRS) Bridle – an industry-first innovation that replaced bridle pulleys with a low-profile bungee setup that improved steering speed, response and general high-end performance. Feedback on the IRS Bridle was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. The 2016 RPM comes equipped with the same system, which gives riders a more fluid connection to the kite and gives the kite improved stability and smoother, more reactive performance.
In addition to the industry-leading IRS bridle, the 2016 RPM features upgrades to its already bombproof construction, including a tougher, more durable diamond leech trailing edge and a new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These upgrades complement Slingshot’s proprietary tri-tech protection, making this one of the toughest, most durable kites on the market. Also returning to the 2016 RPM is an upgraded One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.
