Bomber Slingshot construction:
Have unrivaled confidence in your gear, and in your investment, with bombproof Slingshot construction: Slingshot coined the term Surf-Tough more than a decade ago, and today we take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market.

As an investment, due to superior construction and durability, Slingshot kites hold up exceptionally well over time and have a high resale value. Slingshot designer Tony Logosz has defined quality kite design and innovation since day-one by. Many major construction techniques popular today started with Slingshot.
Split Strut technology:
Ride with confidence and control with a stronger, more stable and more ridged canopy. Created by Slingshot, SplitStrut technology has become the gold standard in kite design. SplitStrut integrates the kite’s canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece. This is a major design element in all of Slingshot’s kites, including the Slingshot Rally 2018, and it results in a stronger, more stable and far more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
Save time and energy with Slingshot’s ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM:
Slingshot invented the one-pump concept years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how important it really is.
