2019 Slingshot Rally Kitesurfing Kite



2019 Slingshot Rally Kitesurfing Kite

Available Sizes: 5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 12m, 14m

The Rally will take you where you want to go. Upwind, downwind, backrolls, frontrolls, mega boosts, waves or flat water, its done it all. It’s even crossed the Atlantic.* The Rally inspires confidence, knowing that it will make you a better rider no matter what you’re up to, your on the right kite.

Great range and depower, easy relaunch, solid upwind ability, predictable performance in gusty wind, lofty hangtime and solid crossover surf performance- if you’re looking for one kite that does everything well, you will find none better than the Rally.

The Rally features a Delta-C shape, tapered wingtips and fine-tuned three-point bridle system. This design yields more depower and a wider wind range than more traditional shapes and makes relaunching as easy as a gently pull on one end of the bar. Tapered wingtip provides a tight pivot radius for fast steering and mellow, predictable loops. For jumping, the Rally’s hybrid delta shape provides long, lofty airs that are great for staying under control and landing gently regardless of how high you go. For wave riding and foiling, the Rally’s feathery downwind drift makes the Rally the ideal cross-over performer, while on the opposite spectrum it also unhooks relatively well for cross-over freestyle/wakestyle.

Features

  • The ultimate utility player - one kite for all conditions
  • Worry-free relaunch, wide range and great depower
  • Solid crossover surf performance
  • Forgiving, safe and stable - great for user friendly progression
  • Lofty airs, fun freeride performance

Slingshot Technology

One Pump Speed System

We invented one pump, then we reinvented it. This dramatically reduces inflation time so you can have more time where it matters: the water.

Splitstrut

Another first by Slingshot: strut integration right into the kite's canopy rather than being hung. This integration improves overall kite rigidity and allows for lighter weight struts which mean a more aerodynamic frame.

Connect Forward Attachment Point

Steering lines are connected directly to the forward "sweet spot" geometry of the kite. This provides better feel and better handling.

New Striking Graphics

Built to stand out on the beach, Slingshot has never been one to conform, with these new graphics every rider on the beach will know where and who you are.

Open C Delta Profile

This profile will lend itself to a tighter turning radius, more low end grunt, bigger loftier jumps and more depower at the bar.

No Pulleys. No BS.

Direct feel and precise control, with no lag time, delivers enhanced responsiveness and unmatched upwind performance.

Sentinel characteristics: 
The Sentinel system is designed for riders who like the Compstick’s simplistic and rugged design but prefer an above-the-bar location of the depower rope. The Sentinel features an above-the-bar trim cleat, a swiveling safety mechanism below the bar and all the other features that have made the Compstick Sentinel the trusted choice for riders around the world, year after year. For 2017, we’ve given the Compstick a fresh new visual presence and have carried over improvements to the floats, grips, redesigned bar ends and safety leash that were implemented in 2016.

2019 Slingshot Compstick Guardian Control Bar

Trusted, proven rider-simplicity at its finest; no gizmos or gimmicks, just clean design, intuitive function and bombproof construction. You are the driver, this is your steering wheel.

Your bar should not come between you and your kite, it should feel like an extension of your arms. This is the Compstick. Equipped with the strongest flying lines in the industry (800lb test inside lines, 500lb test outside lines), easy release/reset safety systems and a clean, comfortable interface, it instills confidence and lets you forget about your bar and ride like you’re connected directly to the kite. The Compstick is available in two layout options, our patented below-the-bar and the traditional above-the-bar depower.

The Compstick Guardian features our patented below-the-bar system that places the depower within easy reach at waist level and increases the amount of throw above the bar. The trim cleat is incorporated into the safety release box, which further simplifies the look and feel of the setup. Your vision above the bar is clean, with no cleat or depower straps dangling in front of your face. To control the amount of throw, an active stopper can be moved on the fly to stop the bar wherever it is set.

Features

  • Clear, intuitive bomber below-the-bar system
  • Easy to reach depower location
  • Clean visibility above the bar
  • Maximizes throw and depower
  • Ride with confidence with the strongest lines in kiteboarding
