2020 SLINGSHOT RALLY GT V1 KITESURFING KITE

Available Sizes: 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m, 14m 

The NEW Rally GT is the evolution of our most popular and versatile f reeride crossover kite. With a distinctly different outline than prior years, the Rally GT has been redesigned to better fill the position in our lineup as the true all-riders, all-conditions, one-kite-wonder. A NEW three-strut canopy design, lower aspect ratio and stubby, swept wingtips give it playfully quick steering and response with ginormous wind range and depower. The relaunch on this kite takes little more than the flick of a wrist, then sheet and go with super smooth power delivery. While our other kites gravitate toward a specific condition or discipline of riding, the Rally GT is designed to be the golden child of our lineup- good at everything, bad at none.

RALLY GT TECHNICAL FEATURES:

1.NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech

New for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.

2.NEW Three-strut Future Retro-C Canopy

Provides the ideal balance between f riendly and responsive handling with stability and smooth, sheet-and-go power delivery. A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.

3.NEW SegmentedSwept Wingtips

New for 2020 our designers engineered a new wingtip design using variable diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as water relaunch.

4.IRS Bridle

The IRS Bridle replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. Pulleys can be heavy, slow and inefficient. They can also create f riction and unnecessary line wear. The IRS bridle’s features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft depending on the rider’s control of the kite. This travel takes time and historically pulleys were the only way we could initiate it. With the IRS bridle the bungee does it, and does it better. What used to be delayed and unresponsive now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically. This is a significant breakthrough in advancing kite performance.

5.Multiple Attachment Points

Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine- tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.

6.Surf-Tough Construction

Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes through the wringer in the surf.

7.Split Strut

A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Split Strut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.

8.One Pump Speed System

A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.

9.Bomber Slingshot Construction

We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches, reinforced Dacron trailing edge material, reinforced leading-edge seams, diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy Mark Cloth attachment, 4x4 Canopy Tech, surf tough seams, and panel layout.

Sentinel characteristics:

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.

2020 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 Campstick. 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
