SLINGSHOT kite Turbine 17 2018

1299.00 EUR

1073.55 EUR Excluding VAT

Kite

Size: 17m²
High-aspect shape favors power, efficiency and low-end performance
The “session saver” and a must-have for light wind locations
Feel like you’re flying with long, lofty airs
The most fun you’ll have on a light wind kite
Fine-tuned bridle helps with relaunching in low wind

The Turbine is in a class of its own and can’t really be compared to any other kite. With a super high aspect ratio, this is about as close to a foil kite as you can get in a LEI format. We coined the term “throw it don’t mow it” with the Turbine years ago, and for good reason. With most large light wind kites, simply getting out on the water about all they’re good for. The Turbine is a different experience altogether.

Turbine performance:
First and foremost, the Turbine is a high-powered shape with more pull per size than any other kite in our lineup. Steering speed is on the slow side (which is typical of all larger kites), but with power and efficiency on the upside, you get the same amount of pull from a smaller kite, which in turn translates to faster steering. 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.

Package includes:
Turbine kite
Turbine kite backpack
Emergency bladder repair kit
