FOR OVER A DECADE, Slingshot has focused our commitment, integrity and passion toward the highest performance C Kite in the world. We’ve collaborated with many of our top Team Riders over the years as a calculated part of the design and development process. Riders like legendary mega loop king Ruben Lenten and 2010 PKRA Champion Andy Yates. Together, we’ve built the most powerful FUEL ever.
The 2012 Slingshot Fuel Kite reintroduces one of our most important design features — Splitstrut Technology. The 2012 Slingshot Fuel Kite is built on a 5 strut platform, making the kite incredibly rigid and stable in even the toughest conditions. This year we’ve also incorporated new trailing edge construction for extra protection to decrease wear. Other innovations such as One-Pump (original Slingshot patented single point inflation system), Custom Fuel Injection (fine tune for wake or freestyle) and Progressive Power Steering (optimum tracking, precision feedback, custom range) continue to lead the industry. The combination of this dedication, design and technology create a kite with unmatched deliberate power, fearless looping and unwavering recovery — making the 2012 Slingshot Fuel Kite the C kite expert rider’s weapon of choice.
