2017 Slingshot Kite Gear

2017 Slingshot Kite Gear

We are now carrying Slingshot’s 2017 kiteboard line! Our collection of Slingshot’s new gear so far includes the Rally, Wave SST, and Fuel kites, and the Refraction Pro, Asylum, and Misfit twintip boards.

2017 Slingshot Kites

Rally

SS_2017_Kite_Rally_3QL[1]The Slingshot 2017 Rally is the go-to kite for those flying in all conditions and ideal for those still learning the sport. It can be used for both surfing and freeriding giving you more options for your money. The kite keeps all of the Rally 2016’s highly regarded features with some improvements. According to Slingshot the following changes have been made:

  • Kite sizes 8,9, and 10 have changes in geometry and strut diameter.
  • Addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material to control trailing edge tension.
  • Reinforced one-pump inflation valve connection to the bladder to decrease blowouts from an incorrectly attached or detached hose.
  • Addition of two Kevlar patches on the trailing edges, preventing bridle rub.

Wave SST

The 2017 Wave SST is designed for more experienced kiteboarders, specifically with kite surfers and foils in mind. The kite is perfect for catching waves and foiling due to it’s great downwind drift and responsive turning. The Wave SST features the same additions as the 2017 Rally with:

  • Addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material to control trailing edge tension.
  • Reinforced one-pump inflation valve connection to the bladder to decrease blowouts from an incorrectly attached or detached hose.
  • Addition of two Kevlar patches on the trailing edges, preventing bridle rub.

Fuel

SS_2017_Kite_Fuel_3QL[1]The 2017 Fuel kite is the Wave SST’s  freestyle counterpart. The kite is designed specifically for riders looking for high performance in a freestyle kite. The kite features no back-stalling, consistent power, massive boosts, and powerful mega loops. The kite has gone through a couple of changes this year:

  • Returned to the classic four-line configuration.
  • Eliminated optional Nitrous bridle system included on the 2016 model and instead added a leading edge attachment for fifth-line setup.
  • Addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material to control trailing edge tension.
  • Reinforced one-pump inflation valve connection to the bladder to decrease blowouts from an incorrectly attached or detached hose.
  • Addition of two Kevlar patches on the trailing edges, preventing bridle rub.

2017 Slingshot Boards

Refraction Pro

SS_2017_Kiteboard_Refraction[1]The 2017 Refraction Pro was designed by pro kiteboarder Sam Light with the goal of creating a board that would perform in all types of conditions and cable parks. This board is his solution. The board has an aggressive rocker, stiff flex, and a durable Dura-Glide base. 2017 upgrades include:

  • .7 mm Dura-Glide base for sliding and grinding
  • 139cm model added
  • Carbon reinforced inserts, replacing Fastrack system

The board features the most rocker of any board in Slingshot’s collection, flex pattern and laser-cut channels designed for speed. The 2017 includes Slingshot’s new board feature:

Misfit

SS_2017_Kiteboard_Misfit[1]The 2017 Slingshot Misfit is designed for general freestyle kiteboarding use in all conditions. The board features a mild rocker and a relatively stiff flex pattern allowing it to cut up wind and beat through chop well. It’s also a perfect board for entry level kiteboarders who want a board they can learn on, but not outgrow. The 2017 Asylum features Slingshot’s new inserts:

  • Carbon reinforced inserts, replacing Fastrack system2017_MISFIT_CHART_RATINGS[1]
