Slingshot Machine V1 Highlights
NEW KITE GEOMETRY
The Machine V1 features an all-new kite geometry created by our legendary design team. This new shape and profile have ushered in the potential for maximum height and hang time.
NEW CLEAN CANOPY
We drastically reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This paneling reduction decreases the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
NEW PULLEYLESS BRIDLE SYSTEM
No pulleys means riders have a more instant and direct input from bar to kite. An upgrade to more premium materials, reduces the bridle-line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this streamlining.
NEW ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
The patented Slingshot invention that's now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade for 2022. We have increased the system's tube diameters to get cleaner airflow for easier inflation, and also repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
HYBRID OPEN-C CANOPY
Five struts give the Machine V1's canopy the superior stability and rigidity it needs for big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions. The hybrid geometry provides insane wind range, instant water relaunch and unlimited boosting potential.
4X4 CANOPY TECH
The Machine V1 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market.
MULTIPLE ATTACHMENT POINTS
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to quickly fine tune handling, power and performance based upon your riding style and the conditions of a particular session.
