2017 Slingshot RPM - At A Glance
The 2017 Slingshot RPM is an amazing kite for many different types of riders. Beginner to Pro. This kite is great for learning to kite, riding waves and aggressive unhooked freestyle. Slingshot builds the RPM with their legendary durability but the kite is still lightweight. The design is an Open C shape with fat wingtips that give the kite pull when turned or looped. The kite is medium bar pressure with a really solid feel so you can tell what the kite is doing at all times. - DJ
