2015 Slingshot RPM - Freeride Crossover
Legendary just got better with the new 2015 RPM.
Employing an upgrade to the bombproof, tried-and-true construction that has made Slingshot an industry-leader and the trusted brand for kiteboarders around the world, the legendary RPM takes innovation to the next level with its new IRS bridal.
The Intuitive Response System replaces the RPM’s pulley bridal with a revolutionary new shock-absorbing system that gives riders a more direct connection to their kite and the free-flowing energy of the wind. With the elimination of moving pulleys from the bridal, riders will notice an immediate boost in response, steering speed, sheeting, load-and-pop and connection to the kite, while the addition of the new shock-absorbing suspension bridal automatically distributes line tension to give the kite improved stability and smoother, more reactive performance in all wind conditions.
In addition to the groundbreaking new IRS bridle, the 2015 RPM features upgrades to its already bombproof construction, including a tougher, more durable diamond leech trailing edge and a new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These upgrades complement Slingshot’s proprietary tri-tech protection, making this one of the toughest, most durable kites on the market. Also added to the 2015 RPM is the new One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.
Since its inception five years ago by Slingshot’s renowned design team headed by Tony Logosz, the RPM has exploded on the global stage as one of the most rock-solid and versatile kites ever created. With this year’s changes and upgrades, we’re confident our flagship kite will go above and beyond its already unrivaled reputation, taking you to new heights in the process.

2015 Slingshot RPM- At A Glance
"The RPM is my favorite kite design and I have been riding it for several years. It is very predictable because the kite has amazing feel and is easy to keep track of in jumps and unhooked tricks. The kite is the lightest design of the Slingshot kites and it drifts well. I really like the kite for learning new tricks. The kite relaunches really well but some more wave oriented kite and delta shaped kites relaunch more quickly." DJ
"The RPM is one of the best "do everything" kites I have rode. It is responsive and predictable which makes for an all around enjoyable ride whether I am unhooking, jumping big, or carving on a surf board. This kite has really been a fantastic tool in my progression in both freestyle and wakestyle riding. Likewise I have not used I kite I like more in the waves or in really high winds." Garrett
