There's a reason the Slingshot Turbine has been nicknamed 'Old Faithful' by its growing fan base. If you want to get out and riding before whitecaps show up then Slingshot kites Turbine lightwind kite is what you need. This kiteboard kite will allow you to get out and ride at alone at even the buisiest kiteboarding spots in the world due to its lightwind riding ability. The 2014 Turbine kite is now lighter, faster turning, and flys further into the window due to its Open Delta C design and free-Twist wingtip technology. The wind range of this kite is unbelievable as it not only excells in sub 10 knots but also in the high teens. Wether you plan to ride a twintip, surfboard, or race board the Turbine kiteboarding kite has all the speed and low end grunt that you need. Want more water time? Then pick up a 2014 Slingshot Turbine 17m and never turn back.
Everyone knows that if you want to get on the water and have fun in 5 to 6 knots your kite has to be light. We agree, but if you want to go beyond just mowing the lawn you need a sophisticated kite. The new Turbine not only gets you on the water first, it provides a performance ride and lets you stay on the water even as the wind is picking up.
Our progressive Open Delta C design has been updated with a new bridle. We moved from last year’s 3 point LE attachment configuration to a new 5 point cascading bridle attachment system. This is critical for creating a more consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke when sheeting in and out with the bar. This gives you specific control over the power which significantly increases range on the low end and high end. Additional new improvements include a new lower aspect ratio that is combined with a LE diameter reduction of 9%. The two work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing riding speed, efficiency or upwind performance.
The Turbine has adopted our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five strut kite. It eliminates battens while offering the same benefits seen with our reflex wingtip in our other Open Delta C kites. To enhance rider customization we have added three additional wingtip attachment points for the rear flying lines. A Turbine should be part of every riders quiver.
As a complete system the 2015 Compstick blends the critical elements of safety, kite control, de-power, and convenience into a rider experience that is tested, trusted, simple, smooth and intuitive.
