2013 Slingshot RPM Sale
Kite Zombies is proud to introduce the 2013 Slingshot RPM. The RPM has been one of our top picks since it's introduction in 2009. This kite delivers top performance in most conditions and still excels at unhooked freestyle riding.
The RPM is the first and only non C kite to take a PKRA championship podium finish.
First comes in many forms. The Slingshot RPM is the original Open C kite that started it all. It evolved to become the kite that took Youri Zoon to a world title. It has become a riders favorite throughout the world in just a few short years.
We will match or beat any advertised price. If you have any questions about packages or pricing please call (800-969-6199) or use our contact form.
Building on it's dramatic success of the Open-C canopy and Slingshot's patented Split Strut technology, the RPM pushes kite design to a whole new level. Inspired by Youri's world dominating performance on the tour, we modified the wing tip attachment points to optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning customization. These additional features and the new (2012) 7m allows complete versatility in all conditions and all riding styles.
We changed everything with the introduction of the RPM five short years ago. It's proven Open-C canopy design and Slingshot's patented Split Strut technology continue to push kite design to a new level even today. The RPM created (and still dominates) the 3 Strut Open-C category.
Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made steady improvements and subtle refinements until reaching the pinnacle it is at today. The 2013 RPM Crossover kite is a powerful combination of aggressive freestyle characteristics and progressive crossover performance. It's low profile wingtips increase turning speed and reduce drag, while the custom attachment points optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning from freestyle to wakestyle in seconds. Inspired by our world class team, the RPM delivers unmatched out of the box performance with many options for personal customization.
Over the years, we have built a full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver. From dominating freestyle to hard core crossover, the 2013 RPM retains it's standards of durability and stability along with it's aggressive look and feel on the water.
