      The SST V7 continues to push the limits of a kitesurfing kite. We have implemented an all new Dacron that is lighter and provides even more performance. This new material coupled with our thinnest and lightest struts ever have made the SST V7 one of the lightest 3 strut kites ever produced. Industry Icon and Pioneer Ben Wilson, continues to task our development team to push the limits of speed and drift. Building on the SST V6 platform that Ben fell in love with our design team rose to the occasion and delivered further refined V7 that offers lightning-fast response and precision turning.

      Why We Made It

      We built the SST V7 to deliver next-level speed, drift, and response while also providing the rider with great upwind reach and quick water-relaunch confidence.

      Why You'll Love It

      • The SST V7 delivers hero level drift, speed, and response to maximize your fun on a surfboard, foil, or a twin-tip
      • Faster, lighter, and more technically advanced than its predecessor; The SST V7 is the next evolution of a kitesurfing kite
      • Ridden and endorsed by industry icon and kitesurfing pioneer Ben Wilson
      • Key Improvements include faster turning as well as increased upwind performance and water-relaunch

      NEW Reduced Weight Dacron


      At Slingshot we are constantly testing and researching new materials. We have implemented a new Dacron in our Leading Edge and Struts that is lighter and more rigid than our past Dacron frames.

      Rapid Responsive Wingtip


      The additional curve of the SST V7's wingtip combined with our IRS bridle technology provides added speed, and responsive handling and has completely revolutionized its upwind performance and water relaunch.

      Micro Struts


      The SST V7 uses our thinnest and lightest struts ever. These smaller diameter struts provide plenty of overall structure to the kite while still keeping down weight and drag to enable next-level drift and response.


      Streamlined Pulley-less Bridle System


      By eliminating pulleys, riders will feel a more instant and direct input kite input. We use ultra-thin and static bridle lines. Riders will feel less drag through the air due to this streamlined bridle system.

      One Pump Speed System


      The patented Slingshot invention has gotten an upgrade. We have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow for easier inflation and repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.

      Compact C Canopy


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

      4x4 Canopy Tech


      The SST V7 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop nylon. This creates the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy on the market. Your kite will last longer and feel more stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.

      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.
