SLINGSHOT FUEL 2018 KITE


SAVE 25% NOW - PRICES REDUCED!


The Fuel’s Traditional-C profile and wide, squared-off wingtips deliver powerful performance, the best (and backstall-free) unhooked handling of any shape in the industry and gut-checking loops that travel deep through the window. Relaunching is made surprisingly easy by refined leading edge and wingtip geometry. Although tuned for freestyle-centric riding, the Fuel has respectable crossover performance. The Fuel was the foundation from which countless other kites were designed, and over the years it has been the catalyst that launched many of the world’s best riders into their careers.

SIZES: 7/9/11/13 M

Package Includes: 

  • Fuel Kite
  • Fuel Kite Backpack
  • Bladder Repair Kit
  • Quick-start Guide

Highlights:

  • Unbridled C-kite power and performance
  • The original Megaloop master
  • Fine-tuned for freestyle/wakestyle and big air
  • Unrivaled unhooked control with zero backstalling
  • Bomber Slingshot construction built to take a beating
  • Extensive black layout prevents UV damage

Details: 

This legendary C-kite will yank you out of your board shorts if they’re not tied tight enough. The original instigator of the Mega-Loop, the Fuel is the influential kite that lit the fire for the entire “King of the Air” movement. Riders who choose the Fuel choose it for good reason- it’s hands down (and shorts down) one of the most explosive, adrenaline-pumping kites ever produced.
Traditional C:  The original shape that started it all. The foundation of our entire kite line, the Traditional-C provides consistent grunt and stability through the power stroke. This shape is also designed to boost, loop and predictably recover.
Customize power, bar pressure, response and handling with multiple attachment points: 
The Fuel features multiple attachment points that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly depower or for riding waves, to name a few. 
 
 
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. Slingshot’s bombproof durability gives riders the trust and confidence they need to push themselves, and their gear, to new limits. 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. Most 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, 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.
