Read more on what Slingshot says about the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite

 

The 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite is in a class of its own and can’t really be compared to any other kite. With a super high aspect ratio, this is about as close to a foil kite as you can get in a LEI format. We coined the term “throw it don’t mow it” with the Turbine years ago, and for good reason. With most large light wind kites, simply getting out on the water about all they’re good for. The 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite is a different experience altogether. 2018 Slingshot Turbine KiteFirst and foremost, the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite is a high-powered shape with more pull per size than any other kite in our lineup. Steering speed is on the slow side (which is typical of all larger kites), but with power and efficiency on the upside, you get the same amount of pull from a smaller kite, which in turn translates to faster steering. The high aspect ratio of the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite performs like a wing in the air- jumps are long and lofty, loops are slow and deep through the window, pull is steady and powerful and the upwind drive and low-end efficiency is as good as you can get before transitioning to a foil kite.

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite Rider profile

 

 

Turbine rider profile: For lighter wind, the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite is a session saver for riders of all levels. As you go down in size and up in wind speed, the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite’s power and efficiency translate to an advanced freeride kite with long, loft airs, aggressive upwind drive and the pull of a tank fueled by RedBull. Whether you’re in it for a mellow cruise in a light ocean breeze or you’re an experienced kiter looking for a completely different flying experience, the 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite will not disappoint. 

 

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite Turbine Bridle

 

 

Turbine bridle: The 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite features a five-point cascading bridle and optimized leading edge and strut design. This configuration is engineered to give the Turbine stability and structure across a huge range of available sizes and provide easy relaunch in all wind conditions.  

 

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite Split Strut

 

 

Split Strut: Invented by Slingshot and adopted as the industry gold standard in canopy construction, Split Strut design integrates the kite’s struts into the structure of the canopy. This results a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates superior efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame. 

 

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite One Pump

 

 

One-Pump: Slingshot patented the One-Pump system years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how nice it really is. 

 

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite Customize Your Ride

 

 

Customize Your Ride: The 2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite features multiple attachment points at the kite- both on the leading and trailing edge- that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly freeride or for riding waves, to name a few.  

 

2018 Slingshot Turbine Kite Bomber Slingshot Construction

 

 

Tri-Tech protection: Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth and Neoprene scuff guards are strategically placed to protect vulnerable areas of the kite from scratches, punctures wear and tear. 

 

Surf Tough tech: Strategic panel layout, superior canopy materials and precision engineered seams and stitching result in kites that can take proper beatings without issue. Slingshot’s unique panel layout not only adds strength and canopy structure, it also helps contain the damage to your kite in the event that it does tear or get punctured. 

 

Dimension Polyant 175 Dacron: DP175 is a premium canopy material used solely by Slingshot in the kiteboarding industry. This high-strength, high tenacity material is resistant to bias stretch and retains its structure exceptionally well, which is why we utilize it for every high performance kite we build. Where other brands have cut corners and selected lesser materials to reduce costs, Slingshot has remained committed to quality. 

 

Bayer Material Science Polyurethane Bladders: Slingshot bladders are made in the USA to precision specs using high-quality polyurethane.
