The number one way to increase your time on the water is by extending what conditions make kiteboarding fun. The Slingshot Turbine 2020 can be combined with a Competition Race board, surf board or a lightwind specific Glide board for mind blowing speed, power, upwind and downwind performance.

First and foremost, the Turbine is a high-powered shape with more pull per size than any other kite in Slingshot's lineup. The high aspect ratio performs like a wing in the air - jumps are long and lofty, loops are slow and deep through the window, pull is steady and powerful and the upwind drive and low-end efficiency is as good as you can get before transitioning to a foil kite.

The Turbine V10 features Slingshot's proven Open Delta C platform which continues to deliver amazing power per size, upwind trajectory, and instant relaunch. The newest addition to the Turbine is our 4x4 Canopy tech. This new canopy material is going to aid in the overall structural stability of the wing, which will provide more wind retention and steering performance.

As you go down in size and up in wind speed, the Turbine’s power and efficiency translate to an advanced freeride kite with long, loft airs, aggressive upwind drive and pull. Whether you’re in it for a mellow cruise in a light ocean breeze or you’re an experienced kiter looking for a completely different flying experience, the Turbine will not disappoint.

All the same qualities that make the Turbine such a great light wind kite translate to an aggressive, high-power, high-performance weapon as you go down in size and up in wind speed.
