2020 Slingshot SST V5 Kiteboarding Kite

The SST is the kite of choice for surfers, foilers, directional riders, downwind fanatics and general freeriders who value down the line drift, through the window speed and immediate reaction as their kite's most important flying characteristics.  Think about tow-in surfing.  The SST delivers the power and performance to get you into position, drifts like a feather as you ride down the line, then reengages with the flick of a wrist.  These same qualities make the SST the perfect choice for foiling when you want full feedback and responsive steering no matter how powered you are or what direction you're riding. 

Technical Features:

  • New 4x4 Canopy Tech -  New for 2020, we've upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material.  This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market.  Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gust wind. 
  • Three-strut Compact-C Canopy -  Provides the ideal balance between friendly and responsive handling with stability and smooth, sheet-and ago power delivery.  A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.
  • Swept Wingtips - Curved/swept help the kite roll up on edge for a quick and easy relaunch, give the kite a more reactive feel at the bar and reduce pivot radius for tight and fast turning and looping.
  • Condensed IRS Bridal - Minimalist bridle that provides the canopy support and structure in a condensed format that cannot get wrapped around a wingtip in the even the kite gets rolled or tumbles.  our patented IRS bridle incorporates a bungee segment that expands and contracts under load to give the kite added response and stability. 
  • Multiple Attachment Points - Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power, and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session.  Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the Kite's overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride. 
  • Surf-Tough Construction -  Reinforced seams and strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the even your kite goes the wringer in the surf.
  • Split Strut - A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry-wide, Split Strut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sown over the strut like lesser designs.  Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable and durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.  
  • One Pump Speed System - A Patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve.  
  • Bomber Slingshot Construction - We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market.  Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches, reinforced Dacron trailing edge material reinforced leading edge seams, diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy mark Cloth attachment, 4x4 Canopy Tech, surf tough seams, and panel layout.
