2015 Slingshot RPM

Slingshot are proud to announce the new 2015 RPM will once again be making kiteboarding history. Slingshot Chief Designer Tony Logosz just did to kites what the suspension system did for mountain bikes. We are proud to introduce our revolutionary new IRS bridle system.

This was not an easy task but after extensive research and development Tony and his testing team made a huge breakthrough in the engineering of the RPM bridle. According to Tony, "This is a game changer for future kite design."   

This intuitive response system auto tunes the bridle by using suspension technology. The IRS differential self-adjusting switch tunes the LE to the provide the optimal shape throughout every angle of attack. This provides a bar feel that is intuitive and delivers ultimate rider control. The IRS's responsiveness delivers the rider unmatched controlled power for any turn or maneuver.

The RPM now comes with our new "One Pump Speed System." You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation effort during setup and speed at take down time.  Other improvements include details in our legendary bomb-proof construction with an all new updated diamond leech trailing edge construction, accompanied by a our DP 175 Dacron leading edge and strut material. These added features compliment our proprietary tri-tech protection, making this the most durable RPM ever.

In addition to our tireless effort to build the best RPM we've made dramatic improvements to the 2015 Vision, Glide, Crisis and Turbine. We are also introducing the all new Carbon Widowmaker twip tip and our Alien Air FX Foil.  We are more excited than ever to launch these incredible new products.

Never before seen new bridle system...
