The evolution of the RALLY GT sees the kite’s design dialed up to be even more user friendly with improved turning speed, upwind performance and water relaunch. Simply put: If you’re looking for maximum freeride versatility, this is the kite for you.
Rally GT V2 kite, Kite Bag, Quick Start Guide, Bladder Patch Kit, Replacement IRS Bungee
The RALLY GT V2 is designed to be a true all-riders, all-conditions, one-kite-wonder that is unrivaled in terms of versatility and friendly performance.
To improve the RALLY GT V2’s turning speed, we tapered the diameter of the leading edge to be smaller and more efficient, which allows the kite to move quicker through the wind window, as well as providing upwind reach. This more effective leading edge also adds more power per size and lighter bar pressure, especially in the larger sizes of the kite.
The RALLY GT V2 also features two different bridle configurations depending on the size of your kite. This diversity was made to allow for better range and even more stellar relaunch than the inaugural version.
4-Point IRS Bridle
The 5m, 6m, and 7m RALLY GT v2 feature our 4-point IRS bridle system. This IRS system features a bungee line on the lowest leading edge connection that provides superior stability as well as immediate and smooth kite feedback. This bridle configuration maintains that legendary Slingshot bar feel yet delivers hero level turning speed without any delay in handling and response.
4 Point Pulleyed IRS Bridle
On the 8m, 9m, 10m, 12m, and 14m sizes, we have engineered an all new bridle configuration to aid in steering response and speed. By reconfiguring the IRS bridle system with a new frictionless pulley, we have made great advancements in the kite’s reaction time as well as the kite’s response at the edge of the wind window. This equates to greater light wind performance, water relaunch, as well as a larger wind range and upwind ability.
4 x 4 CANOPY TECH
The canopy on the RALLY GT V2 is constructed 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.
3-STRUT FUTURE RETRO-C CANOPY
Provides the ideal balance between friendly, responsive handling and stability with smooth, sheet-and-go power delivery. A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.
SEGMENTED SWEPT WINGTIPS
The RALLY GT V2’s variable diameter wingtip segments to 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.
FOUR POINT BRIDLE
Pulleys on the new four-point bridle configuration deliver more dynamic steering, especially in the larger sizes.
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.
A Slingshot innovation that has been copied 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.
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.
ONE-PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
Another game-changing 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.
Available sizes: 17" // 20" // 23"
• Streamline above-the-bar depower
• Below-the-bar swivel keeps lines untwisted
• Bomber Slingshot construction
• Strongest and longest lasting lines available

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.
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.
