2017 10m/12m RPM Complete Kite Package
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
2017 10m/12m RPM Complete Kite Package
The 2017 RPM Kite Package is a great way to update your kite quiver with performance kites at closeout pricing. This is an amazing kite package with a 10m and 12m 2017 Slingshot RPM, and an optional Slingshot Compstick Control bar.
The 2017 RPM is one of the smoothest kites on the market. The 2017 RPM can be tuned to be aggressive or set up for a beginner. Many riders have started on the RPM and continued to expert and pro level. The Slingshot RPM is a fantastic blend between the super aggressive full c-kite and the forgiving delta. The RPM built on an Open C-kite design giving it a large depower range yet still gets a lot of the pull, pop, and slack of the full C-kite. Excellent at absorbing gusts, the 2017 RPM is the kite we recommend if you are kiting in gusty wind conditions. The 2017 RPM has the IRS bridle system which incorporates a bungee rather than a pully or slider. Instead of having to wait for the slider or pulley to slide over to initiate the turn, the bungee acts as a replacement and reacts instantly giving the kite a faster responding feel. Also, the 2017 RPM uses the fast pump system making it easier and faster to get out on the water.
Slingshot Compstick Control Bar (optional):
2018 Guardian (below bar depower) 20" x 20m (+ 3m) Lines or 2018 Sentinel (above bar depower) 20" x 20m (+ 3m).
Rider simplicity has been at the core of Slingshot’s design principals since the beginning, and we continue that philosophy with the 2017 Compstick and Guardian safety system. Built for ultimate control and confidence, the Compstick’s intuitive and streamlined below-the-bar depower and safety is unrivaled by any other bar on the market.
With continuous improvement in mind, we’ve added several upgrades to 2017 Compstick, including new molded floats and padded bar-ends, a revised EVA grip design, bar-end bungee line-keepers and an improvement in how the in how the floats fold in for storage. These updates complement the revolutionary features and components that have made the Compstick the trusted bar of choice for hard-charging riders around the world.
The Compstick is offered in the universal 20” bar with 23-meter lines, which can be used with any kite size in our lineup. For more specialized riders, we also offer a 17” bar with 20-meter lines for smaller kites and a 23” bar with 27-meter lines for a larger kite. Slingshot’s internal-bungee kite leash has also been upgraded in 2017 with a shorter overall length and sturdier molded-metal carabiner clips for added strength.
* Our full range of kites can be flown on our 20” Compstick bar. If you would like a specialty bar we recommend that for kite sizes 8m and smaller a 17” bar, for kites 14m and larger a 23” bar
