WHO IT'S FOR
Slingshot built the Machine V1 to enable riders of all skill levels to achieve their record heights. The Machine V1 flies upwind, has quick turning capabilities, effortless relaunch and the big-air ability to give any rider a rush.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
- The Machine V1 will help you achieve your height and hang-time records
- The Machine V1 is comfortable in any and every condition- even when you are not
- Built with premium materials, the Machine V1 is one of the most technically advanced kites
The Machine V1 has an all-new frame geometry that provides insane upward propulsion. Its highly efficient aspect ratio is tuned to launch you to new heights and air times while still maintaining lightning-quick reaction speed and turning.
Built with an ultra-rigid Dacron frame as well as Slingshot's premium 4x4 Canopy Tech made with reinforced Teijin ripstop nylon, the Machine V1 delivers structure, stability and unmatched wind range. This stability enables you to hold down more kite in more wind, unlocking larger and longer jumps.
Slingshot focused on optimizing material sciences for a simplified approach when rounding out the Machine V1. Featuring a minimalistic and strategic paneling layout and a premium, streamlined pulleyless bridle system, the Machine V1's weight is minimized for pure freeride performance.
New Kite Geometry
The Machine V1 features an all-new kite geometry created by Slingshot's design team. This new shape and profile have ushered in the potential for maximum height and hang time.
New Clean Canopy
Slingshot drastically reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This paneling reduction decreases the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
New Pulleyless Bridle System
No pulleys means riders have a more instant and direct input from bar to kite. An upgrade to more premium materials, reduces the bridle-line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this streamlining.
New One Pump Speed System
The patented Slingshot invention that's now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade for 2022. Slingshot has increased the system's tube diameters to get cleaner airflow for easier inflation, and also repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
Hybrid Open-C Canopy
Five struts give the Machine V1's canopy the superior stability and rigidity it needs for big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions. The hybrid geometry provides insane wind range, instant water relaunch and unlimited boosting potential.
4x4 Canopy Tech
The Machine V1 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market.
Multiple Attachment Points
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to quickly fine tune handling, power and performance based upon your riding style and the conditions of a particular session.
