Exceptional Response & Return>
A completely redesigned Trailing Edge shape has been implemented on the Slingshot RPX V1. Reshaping the trailing edge of the Slingshot RPX V1 has allowed us to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag and flutter. This has ushered in next level response out of the Slingshot RPX V1 kite, meaning better return to the top of window during looping, tighter turning radius’ for surfing, and lighting fast reaction speed.
The Slingshot RPX V1 is loaded with innovative technology that includes a new streamlined premium FlyLine Bridle System. This new Slingshot RPX V1 system boasts a diameter of a mere 1.6mm which is a 25% reduction from the previous version. It’s stronger, lighter, and allows the Slingshot RPX V1 kite to move through the air with less drag. The canopy of the Slingshot RPX V1 had been designed to meet the needs of the modern kiteboarder. This new and highly refined Slingshot RPX V1 canopy profile features a reduction of 88 panels from its predecessor. The result is a one-two punch of weight reduction and cleaner airflow with the Slingshot RPX V1.
The Slingshot RPX V1 has been built upon a longstanding Slingshot Invention, the “Open C Canopy.” Often overlooked and misunderstood, the “Open C Canopy” is the magic of the Slingshot RPX V1 and its predecessor the RPM. The Slingshot RPX V1 kites flatter arc offers extensive range, depower, and upwind ability while also providing accurate handling and energetic response.

Slingshot RPX V1 Technology
NEWLY REDESIGNED TRAILING EDGE
A completely redesigned edge has allowed us to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag and flutter. This has ushered in next level response out of the kite as well as better return to the top of window during kite loops and Megaloops.
NEW CLEAN CANOPY
We reduced canopy paneling from 108 individual panels to 20. This reduces the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
NEW STREAMLINED FLYLINE BRIDLE SYSTEM
The FlyLine bridle is an invention found we used on the RPM for the past two years. During the development of the RPX, we wanted to push the possibilities of that bridle even further. By using more premium materials we were able to reduce the bridle line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this new streamlined bridle.
NEW ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
The patented Slingshot invention now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade. We have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow for easier inflation as well as repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
OPEN C CANOPY
This flatter C shaped arc offers extensive range, depower, and upwind ability while also providing accurate handling and energetic response. This harmonious blend of performance and comfort enables you to progress and perform no matter who you are.
4X4 CANOPY TECH
The RPX is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value, and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
A Slingshot invention that has been borrowed industry wide, SplitStrut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable, and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
MULTIPLE ATTACHMENT POINTS
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even slight changes to these settings can make an enormous impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this a useful tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
