Next Slingshot UFO/Ghost Kite Generation

Postby Jamesconn300 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 5:48 am

Hello KF! I just noticed that the UFO is at 1.1 generation, looks like they went from D1 to D2 fabric so they are renaming, I don't think they changed profile or bridles at all.

Does anyone know when the next generation or 1.2 launches for the UFO? What about the Ghost Single strut? That kite also looks like it's in first-generation still and should be getting updated at some point -I'm thinking. Do you think they will release a new UFO or Ghost this spring - or maybe summer or even next fall? I'm considering building a foil quiver but since the season is so late and snow is around the corner may be best to wait for second-gen in the spring if they do update it then. Who has got the scoop? please correct any of my assumptions if I made any errors.

You will get no input. Slingshot is very good at keeping secrets.

UFOs are too good to be missed - get a quiver

Well the ghost came out at the end of 2019 so there might be a new version soon.

UFO in the summer so you might be waiting.
