Returning for its 12th Version is the Flyline Bridle System, which was introduced last year. FlyLine in conjunction with the new Modified Open C shape has ushered in a new realm of performance for the RPM. This has enhanced kite shape and bridle configuration accelerated the RPM’s turning speed as well as increased the lift and hangtime.
Slingshot have continued its progression with our new canopy material; 4x4 Canopy Tech - making in stiffer, stronger, and more durable.

With a balanced presentation of direct handling, sheet and go power delivery, and bar pressure this incredible kite control will make achieving your next kiteboarding milestone easier and more fun than ever before.
Slingshot RPM Features include:
- 4x4 Canopy Tech - The strongest and stiffest material on the market
- Simply put the RPM is the highest performing, most technically advanced kite on the market
- Built to put world championship performance into a freeride package, with more world championships and never before done tricks done on the RPM.
- Enhanced Modified Open C shape matched with the FlyLine bridle configuration accelerates the RPM’s turning speed as well as increases the lift and hangtime.
The RPM is the first kite to break 5 strut design barrier. Its “Open C” canopy design and Full Suspension Bridle create a canopy bridle synergy that liberated our designers need to build structure in the kite with struts. The RPM is the leader in 3 strut design. Its proven benefits include significant weight reduction, an intuitive feel, superior water relaunch and massive boost with increased hang time. There is also a common belief with the pro’s that less struts makes the kite more compact and packable. This makes the RPM the preferred globe trotting kite.
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.
Open-C Kite Design:
Blends the best C kite performance characteristics like power, stability, edging and control with, bow, hybrid, and delta performance characteristics like depower, range, speed, water relaunchability and boosting. The result is increased usability and ultimate versatility in every condition performance. The open C platform, is the only bridled kite design that allows depower control at the bar, or by “prying” your kite to the edge of the window like a true C kite. This benefit truly enhances the park and ride flying style used by so many top pro’s!
Flyline Bridle System:
A combination of the pulleyed bridle featured on previous RPM models and the bungee IRS bridle introduces pulleys on the RPM to give the kite more structural stability and dynamic steering.
The new Flyline bridle combines both pulley and bungee in a new configurtion that results in a faster, higher-flying, more powerful RPM than ever before.
Rear CFI Attachment Points:
Truly customized kite performance for riding style and conditions. Most rear attachment point translates to less bar pressure, faster turning and easier relaunch. More forward attachment point translates to more pressure and overall kite "feel".
One Pump System:
Slingshot introduces the all-new “One Pump Speed System.” You will find the system dramatically reduces inflation time so you get on the water even faster and with less effort than before. .
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.
