What Slingshot has to say about the 2020 Ghost:

Introducing an all-NEW paranormal shape from Tony Logosz, the Ghost V1. Designed from the ground up to be light, simple, and insanely fun to fly, the Ghost is one of the most exciting new kites in our range. It's an out of this world all around kite that has just one strut for incredible handling and steering precision for beginners, experts, and foilers alike. If you are looking for a lightweight ultra-simple kite to take your riding, foiling, or kite tricks to the next level, the Ghost is your friendly companion. The first size run for the Ghost will span from 2.5 all the way to a 17. Its Flyweight construction, one strut design, and segmented swept wingtips cover both low and high end wind giving it a niche in the market. It's Compact Swept C shape design and segmented swept wingtip make water relaunch immediate and its wind range infinite.

Why You'll Love the 2020 Ghost

  • NEW Single Strut Platform - Lightweight & agile in the sky / Small and packable on the bea
  • NEW Compact Swept C shape - provides the precision of a C kite with the instant on/off power delivery of a swept wingtip shape
  • NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech - The stiffest canopy material on the market reduces flutter and increases durability

Ghost Technical Features

1 / NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech

New for 2020, we've upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. The Ghost will last longer, have a higher resale value, feel more solid and will flutter less than any other single strut kite on the market.

2 / NEW Compact Swept C

This design blends the steering precision and speed of a C kite with the instant on and off power delivery that comes with swept wing tip shapes. This profile also provides instant and effortless water relaunch no matter the wind conditions.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-single-strut-platform

3 / NEW Single Strut Platform

The Ghost boasts just a single strut. Eliminating the excess struts makes this kite lightweight and extremely agile in the sky while also mirroring that light weight feel at the bar. Nimble turning, quick-handling, amazing power control, this is how kites should feel.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-flyweight-construction

4 / NEW FlyWeight Construction

In addition to the simple weight reduction of removing struts, we also minimized stitching, paneling, extra leading edge reinforcements to make the Ghost as light as possible. Think about it this way we trimmed all the weight you don't need while keeping what you do.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-irs-bridle-system

5 / IRS Bridle System

The IRS Bridle replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. Pulleys can be heavy, slow and inefficient. They can also create friction and unnecessary line wear. The IRS bridle features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft depending on the rider's control of the kite. This travel takes time and historically pulleys were the only way we could initiate it. With the IRS bridle the bungee does it and does it better. What used to be delayed and unresponsive now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically. This is a significant breakthrough in advancing kite performance.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-splitstrut

6 / Splitstrut

A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Splitstrut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Splitstrut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-one-pump-speed-system

7 / One Pump Speed System

A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you'll know how much of a hassle it was.

 slingshot-2020-ghost-kite-multiple-attachment-points

8 / Multiple Attachment Points

Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power, and performance, based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite's overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.

Bar Options

Sentinel Compstick Bar

Sizes: 17" x 20m / 20" x 20m + 3m ext. / 23" x 27m

  • Below the bar swivel lets you untwist lines at waist level
  • The strongest flying lines in kiteboarding- 800lb inside lines, 500lb outside lines
