For the 2013 Slingshot RPM Kite we changed everything since the introduction of the RPM five short years ago. Were continuing to push the 2013 Slingshot RPM kite design to a new level even today, with it’s proven “Open-C” canopy design and Slingshot’s patented Split Strut technology. The Slingshot RPM created (and still dominates) the 3 Strut “Open-C” category. We have made steady improvements and subtle refinements until reaching the pinnacle it is at today, through years of testing and rider feedback,. The 2013 Slingshot RPM Crossover kite is a powerful combination of aggressive freestyle characteristics and progressive crossover performance.
Inspired by our world class team, the 2013 Slingshot RPM Kite delivers unmatched out of the box performance with many options for personal customization. From dominating freestyle to hard core crossover, the 2013 RPM retains it’s standards of durability and stability along with it’s aggressive look and feel on the water. The 2013 Slingshot RPM Kites low profile wingtips increase turning speed and reduce drag, while the custom attachment points optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning from freestyle to wakestyle in seconds. Over the years, we have built a full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver.
