2019 Slingshot Turbine Kiteboarding Kite
What Slingshot has to say about the 2019 Turbine
With more power per square meter than any other kite in our lineup, the 2019 Turbine is a high-aspect, high-efficiency kite designed for hero-level shredding in wind as light as a mellow onshore breeze.
- High-aspect shape favors power, efficiency and low-end performance “Session saver”, a must-have for light wind locations
- Long, lofty airs. Just sheet in and ride the elevator
- Freestyle friendly, has drift and carry, pulls like a tank
- Fine-tuned bridle helps with relaunching in low wind
Open-C Delta Profile: A shape that delivers light wind efficiency, big, lofty airs and a crazy amount of low-end grunt.
Bomber Slingshot Construction: Strategic panel and seam layout, reinforced stitching, Kevlar skuff patches, ripstop canopy, D2 trailing edge, premium polyurethane bladders and much more make Slingshot kites the most durable and longest lasting on the market.
SplitStrut: SplitStrut is a Slingshot innovation the at integrates the struts into the canopy as opposed to the canopy being sew on over the struts. SplitStrut gives the kite better rigidity and stability and allows for lighter, more aerodynamic strut construction.
One Pump Speed System: A Slingshot original, One Pump reduces inflation time and makes your job of getting pumped up and on the water faster and easier.

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.
If you’re a dedicated surfer/freerider and you aren’t looking to unhook, the new Talon is the perfect addition to your Slingshot bar. The chicken loop is quickly and easily replaced with the Talon system to bring the bar closer to your chest and allow more fluid motion between the bar and your harness system.
