2014 Slingshot RPM Kite with Compstick Control Bar - Kite Backpack - Bladder Repair Kit - Quick Start Guide
Top Pros and high performance riders world wide know the secret behind the RPM. The open C platform allows for fast riding, explosive pop with the correct amount of boost, travel and drift. This allow for aggressive moves with fast and solid landings. The new 2014 builds on our proven legacy with a kite that rides faster, is more responsive, more crisp and more dialed in than ever before.
Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made new improvements and subtle refinements to set a new standard for performance and durability. Our new “Diamond Leech” technology improves air flow for “clean” air release off the trailing edge. This feature improves aerodynamics, and is a major part of why the kite is faster, and has a new crisp feel. The Diamond Leech improved the over all stability
of the leach. This significantly helps with wear and tear or flutter. The full suspension bridle was updated with a new anodized aluminum frictionless pulley. The design has reduced weight, and eliminated wear associated with mechanical pulleys.
We added an 11M kite to our full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver. You can dominate freestyle or hardcore crossover with the 2014 RPM.
2014 RPM Features
Open C Design Platform - First to blend core C-kite power, stability, edging and control into a 4-line technology. The advantage of the 4-line system is depower, range, safety, relaunch and hang time.
Splitstrut Integrated Design - The three struts on the canopy are split and unified with the wing to create a light, stable and very durable kite. Enhanced skin tension locks the designed airfoil in place and reduces distortion under heavy load.
New Diamond Leech - A new reinforced rear panel layout, providing a cleaner release for better aerodynamics.
Updated Progressive Steering - The 2014 RPM comes with custom attachment points that enable the rider to tune bar pressure based on personal riding preference. Two competition settings are extensively tuned for our top pros for increased bar pressure and precise feedback.
New Frictionless Pulley System - Anodized aluminum frictionless pulleys that allow for smooth and consistent travel on bridle line.
