Slingshot V2 Machine LW Kiteboarding Kite

Fresh off its breakout release, the Machine LW returns in its second version even lighter and more optimized to push your light-wind riding even further. Featuring an all-new leading-edge material, the Machine LW V2 boasts reduced weight and even more performance. Keeping the same incredible frame geometry, the Machine LW V2 continues to provide amazing upwind trajectory and exceptional light-wind performance.

Features

  • NEW REDUCED WEIGHT DACRONAt Slingshot we are constantly testing and researching new materials. We have implemented a new Dacron in our leading edge and struts that is lighter and more rigid than our past Dacron frames.
  • SUPERCHARGED KITE GEOMETRY - The Machine LW V2 features proprietary kite geometry brought forth by our legendary design team. This secret shape and profile have ushered in the potential for personal-record height and hang time.
  • CLEAN CANOPY - We significantly reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This reduction decreases the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
  • STREAMLINED PULLEY-LESS BRIDLE SYSTEM - By eliminating pulleys, riders will feel a more instant and direct input from the kite. We use ultra-thin and static bridle lines. Riders will feel less drag through the air due to this streamlined bridle system.
  • ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM - The patented Slingshot invention has gotten an upgrade. We have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow and repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
  • HYBRID OPEN C CANOPY - Five struts give the canopy superior stability and rigidity needed for big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions. The hybrid geometry provides impressive wind range, instant water relaunch, and unlimited boosting potential.
  • 4X4 CANOPY TECH - The Machine V2 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop nylon. This creates the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy available today. Your kite will last longer and feel more stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
  • 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.

Package Includes: Machine V2 Kite, Kite Bag, QSG, Bladder Patch Kit

Slingshot Machine LW V2 - At a Glance

The second-generation Machine LW has gone on a diet and reduced weight in the leading-edge by an upgraded Dacron. The response of the kite has been improved as well as its wind range. I can definitely feel an improvement at the low end of its wind range. The new machine seems to jump a touch better with more pop off the water while still maintaining the floaty hangtime the kite is known for. When it comes to twin-tip freeride sessions this is a favorite for me for boosting big airs and trying to learn new tricks while riding hooked in. The 15m and 17m Machines are great for the kiteboarders looking to get out when conditions are marginal. Most of us don't live in Maui or the Gorge where winds are constantly pumping so getting a kite like the Machine LW is essential so we can keep kiting in our light wind home spots.
