Turbine Overview

2012 Slingshot Turbine

Size: 17m

When you want to stay on the water and still have fun in 5-6 knots, you have to be light. To save weight we started with a new bladder material that is 25% lighter, reduced the leading edge diameter and introduced a smaller strut size.

Efficiency is king, so we completely updated the design geometry. To make it more efficient and faster in light wind we’ve increased the aspect ratio much like on a glider or wind turbine wing. This improves lift thru kite speed and allows it to fly further forward in the window.

The bottom line is this kite increases your riding time and gets you off the beach when there’s not a whitecap in sight.

Complete Package Includes: Kite, Compstick Control Bar, Lines and Backpack
SKU: 121517

In the wing tips of the Turbine, we introduced a new concept called Free-Twist Tip Technology. Developed to increase the narrow wind range of large kites, the bridal attachment is positioned to let the wingtips freely pivot to allow the trailing edge leech panel to open and twist when overpowered or stalled. The result is a lighter, faster feel with a wide apparent wind range and quick turning radius for such a large kite.

The Turbine has plenty of low end grunt to get you planning with a competition race board, surfboard, or large twin tip. Once up to speed, the kite stays efficient and in control as the apparent wind ramps higher
