Hybrid Open-C Canopy:
Five struts give the canopy the superior stability and rigidity needed for aggressive riding, big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions.
4 x 4 Canopy Tech:
Upgraded canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market.
Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
Segmented Swept Wingtips:
A new wingtip design using variable diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as water relaunch.
Multiple Attachment Points:
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
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.
The Raptor is engineered around a direct connect pulley-less bridle. This gives the Raptor unmatched bar feel and input while still providing maximum wind range, turning speed, ease of relaunch and unrivaled upwind performance.
Surf Tough Construction:
Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes through the wringer in the surf.
One Pump Speed System:
A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.
Slingshot Guardian Control Bar:
Designed for the rider who demands absolute, uncompromising safety, performance and convenience in a custom 4 line configuration.
Truly innovative design and engineering with superior safety and performance in mind, Slingshot introduces the COMP STICK CONTROL BAR.
Built for ultimate control and confidence, the Compstick’s intuitive and streamlined below-the-bar depower and safety is unrivalled by any other bar on the market.
With continuous improvement in mind, Slingshot have added several upgrades to the Compstick, including new molded floats and padded bar-ends, a revised EVA grip design, bar-end bungee line-keepers and an improvement in how the floats fold in for storage.
Easy Reach Depower:
Allowing consistent grunt and stability throughout the powerstroke.
Good for boosts, megaloops and predictably recovers.
Guardian Safety System:
The safety release has been reworked from a pin to a clamp mechanism, which simplifies resetting the chicken loop assembly after it has been activated.
Improvements also include a re-sized chicken loop and a molded chicken-stalk assembly.
Auto Spin Swivel:
Rotating component untwists centre lines and helps ensure proper safety function at all times.
Active Stopper Ball:
On-the-fly adjustment piece that allows riders to set the amount of throw on the bar.
Chicken loop, safety release and depower cleat integrated into one user-friendly component, elminating clutter on other parts of the control bar.
Padded Bar Ends with Bungeel Line Keepers:
Preventing board dings and injuries, the padded bar ends will also keep your bar and lines organized while not in use.
In addition to keeping the bar floating and protecting the rider from injury these new floats are slim and sleek.
Improved Float Storage:
Re-engineered to fold easily away for storage.
Re-Designed EVA Grip:
All-new non-slip grip texturing coupled with an ergonomic design to reduce hand fatigue in all conditions.
Dual Pull Safety Handles:
Primarily as a final safety release but can also be used for relaunching your kite off the water.
Precision Cut 800lb Flying Lines:
60% stronger that the compeition's typical 500lb line.
Upgraded with a shorter overall length and sturdier molded-metal carabina clips for added strength.
The Slingshot Comp Stick control bar, meets the needs of the Crossover rider who values uncompromising safety, performance and convenience in a tailored 4 line configuration.
