RPM rider profile:

The RPM is a high-flying, hard-charging kite with multiple world titles under its belt. But the RPM isn’t built for the most elite competitors; the top of the podium is just a byproduct of exceptional design.

The RPM is built for riders like you. You want safety, reliability and predictability in all wind conditions. You want high performance and low risk. You want a kite that won’t hold you back, no matter how much you progress.

You want a kite you can count on when conditions get gnarly, when your friends challenge you to a jump-off or when you’re bound and determined to take that next step in progression, whatever that may be.

If that is you, your kite is the RPM.

RPM bridle setup:

The RPM features Slingshot’s unique shock absorbing IRS bridle system.

This pulleyless, direct-connect bridle incorporates bungee lines that flex and retract to keep proper tension in the lines as you steer the kite.

Slingshot introduced this bridle concept in 2015 and have had overwhelmingly positive feedback about the responsive steering and direct feel it creates. For customized performance, the RPM’s wingtip bridle can be connected at three different points, which allows for tuning of bar pressure, kite feedback and steering speed.

Versatile Open-C Canopy: 

The RPM is the original Open-C shape that spawned an entire category of versatile, freeride/freestyle crossover kites.

The Open-C shape that provides the perfect combination of explosive power and pop, big boosts, solid unhooked riding and high-performance handling with user-friendly characteristics like easy relaunch, big range and depower, responsive steering and solid upwind ability.

Customize Your Ride: 

The RPM features multiple attachment points at the kite - both on the leading and trailing edge, 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 freeride or for riding waves, to name a few.   

Bomber Slingshot Construction:

Tri-Tech protection: Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth and Neoprene scuff guards are strategically placed to protect vulnerable areas of the kite from scratches, punctures wear and tear. 

Surf Tough tech: Strategic panel layout, superior canopy materials and precision engineered seams and stitching result in kites that can take proper beatings without issue. Slingshot’s unique panel layout not only adds strength and canopy structure, it also helps contain the damage to your kite in the event that it does tear or get punctured. 

Dimension Polyant 175 Dacron: DP175 is a premium canopy material used solely by Slingshot in the kiteboarding industry. This high-strength, high tenacity material is resistant to bias stretch and retains its structure exceptionally well, which is why we utilize it for every high performance kite we build. Where other brands have cut corners and selected lesser materials to reduce costs, Slingshot has remained committed to quality. 

Bayer Material Science Polyurethane Bladders: Slingshot bladders are made in the USA to precision specs using high-quality polyurethane.

Warren couldn't have been more helpful - Thank you Pleasure to help you! Enjoy your new RPM Kites, one of the best all rounders on the market and a best seller for us at Wave and Wake.
27-Mar-2018 Product:

Excellent build quality from Slingshot, and love the fast inflate valve on the RPM kite, coupled with the new XL pump, pumping up was a dream. More time on the water and less on the beach setting up. Slingshots bar is very durable too. Enjoy your new Slingshot RPM Kite, they're among the best in the business, and superb quality from premium brand Slingshot.
03-Mar-2018 Product:

The 2018 RPM is stunning, really love the new colour design. Familiar flying characteristics that I know and love with the RPM, fast, stable and predictable. Highly recommend this kite for virtually all styles and abilities of kitesurfing. Will be back for a bigger size to add to my quiver soon! Continual incremental development of the RPM kite means no major changes to what riders know and love, but ensures small refinements continue to keep this kite as one of the best all round performance kites on the market!  You cant really go wrong with an RPM Kite!
