Slingshot V2 UFO Kiteboarding Kite
Slingshot V2 UFO Kiteboarding Kite
The UFO Version 2 kite has been redesigned with the lightest built yet. Our design team reduced the leading edge weight by 25% along with adding a new streamlined bridle system with more premium materials. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air, the ability to foil in even less wind and an unmatched foiling performance with the all-new UFO V2
Building on the foundation of its predecessor, the Ultimate Flying Object V2 expands on the lightweight strutless design by implementing space-age materials that make the kite lighter and even higher performance.

Slingshot UFO V2 - At a Glance
I have logged many hours on the UFO V1, so I was curious how could they make the UFO even better. The V2 has seen a significant weight reduction between the Leading-edge material and the bridle line diameter. The weight reduction has improved the drift substantially by allowing me to ride downwind with more speed without having the kite fall out of the sky. The UFO V2 has better light wind performance so riding in the low end of the wind range is more obtainable than before. The previous version was only available in a couple of sizes, but now there are several sizes to choose from due to its popularity with kite foilers. The V2 still maintains easing relaunch so long as you maintain tension on the bridles and keep the leading-edge in contact with the water. I get asked by kiteboarders if the UFO works with twin tips or surfboards and the truth is it doesn't have the grunt and power to do so. If you want to step up your game in kite foiling get the UFO V2.- Aaron
