NEW Slingshot RPM 2015 Kitesurf Kite
This kite is brand new and still in the packaging. Has never been pumped up or seen the beach.
Please see the image of the bag tag for the correct colour of this kite, we didn't want to unpack the kite just for a photo. The kite in the photos just an example for the kite shape.
We have been testing this kite for 2 weeks now back to back with the 2014 model and it really is a step up form the 2014 model.
If your looking for a better sweet spot in the bar while riding then the new 2015 Slingshot RPM delivers, If your looking for more boost or lift in the RPM then again the new 2015 Slingshot RPM has it. Thats just the start of the new features that the new 2015 model offers.
After testing both the kites in all conditions i can honestly say that the new 2015 RPM offers better performance in all conditions.
So what different?
Pulleys lets be honest none of us like them at all, they make the feel of the kite less responsive and it gives the kite a less direct feel.
Well for 2015 the Slingshot RPM has done away with all pulleys in the new IRS Bridle system.
The other feature your see is the fast inflate valve that we have seen from the like of Cabrinha increases the air flow to make the kite 5 x fast to inflate on the beach.
so see what Slingshot say below:
The RPM is the undisputed leader of its category. For the last 5 years, the RPM has proven to be the best and most versatile kite in the market. With two PKRA world titles and countless high performance sessions under its belt, the RPM has proven its “The One” when it comes to serious high performance riding.
The RPM’s Open C Platform is proven to deliver fast riding and explosive pop with the correct amount of boost, travel and drift. The RPM is the “The One” kite for advanced performance riders.
We took the RPM to a new level this year thanks to a breakthrough in bridle technology. Chief designer Tony Logosz worked close with our Elite Tea and after countless hours of testing and fine-tuning, the new 2015 RPM was born. What Tony developed and his team developed is a new bridle that completely eliminates the need for pulleys. The new IRS Bridle not only eliminates pulleys, but also eliminates the lag time that results from the pulley having to travel fore and aft along the bridle line. Riders will notice increased responsiveness and immediate feedback. This enhances all aspects of kite control, speed, turning, bar pressure, and jumping. The new 2015 RPM is a benchmark not only in performance but also in durability.
Over a decade ago we invented and patented today’s standard for “single point” inflation systems. “One pump ” started it all and is still the number one necessity that makes setup and tear down a breeze. One Pump has evolved for 2015 to become our new One Pump Speed System. With the addition of a new oversized inflate/deflate valve, you’ll be on the water faster than ever.
The 2015 RPM is still “The One.”
* THE FULL RANGE OF KITES CAN BE FLOWN ON A 20” COMPSTICK BAR. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A SPECIALTY BAR WE RECOMMEND THAT FOR KITE SIZES 8M AND SMALLER A 17” BAR, FOR KITES 14M AND LARGER A 23” BAR.
The Intuitive Response System (IRS for short), is a new revolutionary pulley-less bridle system that combines a “Direct Drive Bridle” and a “Suspension Displacement Bridle.” The combination of these two advancements act as a shock absorption system that distributes tension properly to where it’s needed; much like a shock would do for a bike or car suspension system. The IRS differential self-adjusting switch tunes the LE to the provide the optimal shape throughout every angle of attack. This provides a bar feel that is intuitive and delivers ultimate rider control. The IRS's responsiveness delivers the rider unmatched controlled power for any turn or maneuver.
The RPM now comes with our new "One Pump Speed System." You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation effort during setup and speed at take down time. Other improvements include details in our legendary bomb-proof construction with an all new updated diamond leech trailing edge construction, accompanied by a our DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These added features compliment our proprietary tri-tech protection, making this the most durable RPM ever.
