I have this strong feeling that Slingshot is going to follow the Core and Ozone business model and start introducing kites on a two year (or more) cycle. It's the first time I've seen them label their kites as "V" with a corresponding number. I believe soon we shall see the RPM V12. :lol:
Smart move on their part if this is indeed the case!

I’d say it’s v4 2020 (or v3 2020) not sure if there were any changes between 2018-2019-2020 besides colors. Nothing bad in distinguishing versions and yearly color schemes

So far the RPM name on the 2020 kites video was not v12 :)
