NEW FOR 2017
SLINGSHOT EXPANDS TURBINE
TO FULL SIZE RANGE
The Turbine has proven to be one of the best light-wind kites ever made. Slingshot is excited to unleash this high-aspect, high-efficiency machine in a full range of sizes for 2017. All the same qualities that make the Turbine such a great light wind kite translate to an aggressive, high-power, high-flying, high-performance weapon as you go down in size and up in wind speed.
* 15, 17, 19 meter- The proven light wind kite of choice for riders of all abilities. The Turbine’s high-aspect, high-efficiency profile gets you out and riding when others watch from the shore hoping for the wind to pick up.
* 11, 13 meter- Perfect for intermediate to advanced riders who want a massive dose of spice on those moderate-wind days, or as a full light-wind kite for smaller riders. This range yields long, lofty airs, aggressive upwind angles and more power than any kite of the same size.
* 5, 7, 9 meter- Massive air, lofty hangtime and aggressive, high-power freeride performance. Described as “a Rally on steroids”, this size range is perfect for experienced riders who are ready to take their riding to the next level, and for foilers looking for competition-level performance out of a LEI kite.
Just going by looking at the pictures/video, it looks like they're trying to position the turbine as a more performance-oriented kite, which usually means they take a little more skill to fly and require a little more attention to get the most out of them. The rally will still be a good option for an all-around kite.kiterocky wrote:No need rally no more? If turbine better...why people spend money on rally...
