4x4 Canopy Tech
New for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4
reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable
canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale
value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
Hybrid Open-C Canopy
Five struts give the canopy the superior stability and rigidity needed for
aggressive riding, big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions.
Segmented Swept Wingtips
New for 2020 our designers engineered a new wingtip design using variable
diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and
structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This
design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as
No Pulleys No Problem. The Raptor is engineered around a direct connect
pulley-less bridle. This gives the Raptor unmatched bar feel and input while still
providing maximum wind range, turning speed, ease of relaunch and unrivaled
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. Even small changes to these settings can
make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important
tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and
reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes
through the wringer in the surf.
A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Split Strut
integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece
rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut
creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power
under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall f rame.
One Pump Speed System
A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you
inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite
with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.
Bomber Slingshot Construction
We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the
market. Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches,
reinforced Dacron trailing edge material, reinforced leading edge seams,
diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy Mark Cloth attachment, 4x4 Canopy
Tech, surf tough seams and panel layout.
