THE ALL NEW - 2012 Slingshot Turbine

Postby shymac » Mon Apr 09, 2012 10:30 am





Slingshot is proud to introduce the all new 2012 Turbine... *bg& XZSD --

We had one thing in mind as we developed the 2012 Turbine, make it even lighter. Every change we've made down to the smallest detail was to make it even lighter. When you want to stay on the water in 5- 6 knots you have to be light, and that is exactly what we set out to accomplish with the 2012 Turbine. We started off with a new bladder material that is 25% lighter, we also reduced the leading edge diameter and introduced a smaller strut size. Efficiency is king so we completely updated the design geometry as well as adding a few new features in increase on-water performance.

One the wing tips we have developed a new concept called "free twist tip technology." Developed to increase the narrow wind range of large kites. We also added a new and improved "forward steering bridle." Designed for more improved steering, power delivery and adds more support to the wingtips. It's clean and light to the leading edge to maximize performance and Lightens up the bar pressure. No Pulleys!

Less wind does not have to mean less fun. Get the right kite for the job...

PS- eventhough its has awesome low end.. This kite can handle high end without feeling out of control.. Which is the most cases with larger kites of this size.. 6-20kts easy.. \

Looks great - in step with Rob's fare bit this is the other big kite I'm considering for this year-either Roberto's Addiction 18M or the Royal 19M
