Slingshot V1 Machine LW Kiteboarding Kite

Efficient / Power / Boost

The Machine LW V1 has an all-new frame geometry that provides insane light-wind power generation. By eliminating the 4th and 5th struts, the design team could lighten the overall build while increasing the Machine LW V1's light-wind performance its highly efficient aspect ratio is tuned to push the limits of light-wind riding and upwind trajectory.

Built with an ultra-rigid Dacron frame as well as our premium 4x4 Canopy Tech made with reinforced Teijin ripstop nylon, the Machined LW V1 delivers structure, stability, and unmatched wind range. This structural stability enables better reaction speed in larger-sized kites and allows you to hold down more kites should the wind pick up.

We focused on optimizing material sciences for a simplified approach when rounding out the Machine LW V1. Featuring a three-strut frame, a minimalistic and strategic paneling layout, and a premium, streamlined pulleyless bridle system, we minimized added weight for pure light-wind performance.

Why We Made It: We built the Machine LW V1 to enable riders of all skill levels to ride in the least wind possible. It flies upwind, has quick turning, effortless relaunch, and the power to get any rider on the water.

Why You'll Love It

  • The Machine LW V1 will help you ride more power in less wind.
  • The Machine V1 LW is user-friendly, lightweight, and easy for any rider to use.
  • Built with premium materials, the Machine LW V1 is one of the most technically advanced kites we have ever produced.

Product Features

  • New Kite Geometry: The Machine LW V1 features all-new kite geometry brought forth by our legendary design team. This new shape and profile have ushered increased potential for power generation and upwind trajectory.
  • New Clean Canopy: We drastically reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This paneling reduction decreases the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.

Package Includes: Machine LW V1 Kite, Kite Bag, Quick Start Guide, Bladder Patch Kite.

Slingshot Machine LW V1 Kite - At A Glance

With a few early season sessions on the 15m, it flies like a finely tuned, light wind machine. Handling is crisp paired with a medium bar pressure. The kite's new geometry translated to better upwind efficiency and a larger useable wind range. Compared to its predecessor, the Turbine, these improved characteristics lead to less fatigue and more time on the water. Releasing the safety system on the Machine consistently flags the kite out every time without failure. While teaching lessons here in Bellingham Bay, this has been my go-to for students learning to kiteboard in light to marginal wind conditions.
