What Slingshot has to say about the 2016 RPM

The legend continues with the 2016 RPM: The renowned all-around weapon of choice for world champion tricksters, soul-searching surfers and casual weekend-warriors alike. Returning as the flagship kite on Slingshot’s legendary lineup, the 2016 RPM is loaded with exciting and innovative features that will again place this kite at the top of the food chain and uphold its reputation as one of the most versatile and rock solid kites ever produced.

Last year Slingshot introduced the Intuitive Response System (IRS) Bridle – an industry-first innovation that replaced bridle pulleys with a low-profile bungee setup that improved steering speed, response and general high-end performance. Feedback on the IRS Bridle was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. The 2016 RPM comes equipped with the same system, which gives riders a more fluid connection to the kite and gives the kite improved stability and smoother, more reactive performance.

In addition to the industry-leading IRS bridle, the 2016 RPM features upgrades to its already bombproof construction, including a tougher, more durable diamond leech trailing edge and a new DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These upgrades complement Slingshot’s proprietary tri-tech protection, making this one of the toughest, most durable kites on the market.  Also returning to the 2016 RPM is an upgraded One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.

20" and 23" Sentinel Bar unavailable

The Slingshot Compstick bar with the Sentinel system features everything you enjoyed about the classic Compstick, with an above-the-bar depower system. Don't be confused by the synonymous names - the two Slingshot bar offerings are clearly differentiated by the location of the depower system and an updated safety release system. If you enjoy more of an "out of the way" setup, the Sentinel is the bar for you.

Control bar sizes are consistent with the above chart.
