2016 Slingshot Fuel Kitesurfing Kite

Available Sizes: 7m, 9m, 11m, 13m

Product DescriptIon:

As the foremost expert in explosive C-kite performance, the Fuel has consistently pushed the envelope for both the kite industry and the hard-charging athletes who make it shine. Slingshot has refined the Fuel’s legendary constructIon and traditIonal-C design over the years, making this the go-to kite for riders looking for aggressive grunt, unhooked authority, power, boost and insane looping capabilities.

In 2016 we’ve continued with the well-received detachable four-point Nitrous bridal system introduced last year. This new additIon, along three customizatIon settings - Mega Loop, Freestyle and Freeride - gives riders increased flexibility and freedom in how the kite performs. When installed (the bridal comes factory installed but can be easily removed), the Nitrous system delivers explosive pop, massive hangtime and, most notably, increased range and depower.

All of Slingshot’s 2016 kites come with our new One Pump Speed System, which increases inflatIon efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.

2016 Slingshot Compstick With Guardian Control Bars

Product DescriptIon:

Slingshot is upping the ante in 2016 by adding an entirely new bar setup to its arsenal. The Compstick with Sentinel safety is an above-the-bar system that moves the depower strap from the waist-level positIon of our below-the-bar setup to the arms-reach locatIon that some riders prefer.

With a sliding trim block that moves the depower cleat up and down the center lines, riders can adjust the height of the depower rope depending on their reach and the amount of throw they want in the bar. The Sentinel uses the same updated control bar as the 2016 Guardian, but comes with a completely reworked chicken loop and safety release system and a molded below the bar Spin-to-Win mechanism that allows riders to untwist center-lines with ease.

The Compstick is offered in the universal 20” bar with 23 meter lines, which can be used with any kite size in our lineup. For more specialized riders, we also offer a 17” bar with 20 meter lines for small kites and a 23” bar with 27 meter lines for large kite. Slingshot’s internalbungee kite leash has also been upgraded in 2016 with a shorter overall length and sturdier molded-metal carabiner clips for added strength.

*Our full range of kites can be flown on our 20” Compstick bar. If you would like a specialty bar we recommend that for kite sizes 8m and smaller a 17” bar, for kites 14m and larger a 23” bar.
