The evolution of the RPM, the most famous Slingshot's kite
Speed, versatility, control
After 12 years of evolution, the most iconic kite on the market, the RPM, has left space to its successor, the brand new Slingshot RPX. While maintaining all the freestyle qualities that made it's predecessors so successful, the 2021 RPX brings to the game new qualities as big air performance, more hang time and improved loop ability. It sounds like a dream: a kite that has an insane slack for all all wakestyle tricks but can also, in smaller sizes, deliver adrenaline in high winds while looping or boosting like a maniac.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Wake-style.com is glad to present to you the new Slingshot RPX!!!
Why the RPX is a completely new kite
The trailing edge has been completely re-designed, and turbulences have been reduced improving the response in the whole wind window. Slingshot implemented also newbridles 25% thinner, allowing the kite to move trough the air with less drag. The canopy sees a reduction in weight,as 88 panels have been removed. The Open-C canopy offers the same magic hybrid freeride-freestyle feeling as its predecessor.
Slingshot RPX Features:
Insane slack for handlepasses
Increased big air + hang time performance
Improved kiteloop ability
The perfect kite for wakestylers
Unprecedent freeride ability and versatility

RPX: The X is for "Xtra Freeride"
Consider the Slingshot RPX kite to be good at everything: from freeride, to wakestyle, to kiteloops, to big air and now, being so light, it's also possible to use it for foiling. Of course it's surely not a foil specific kite, but we can definitely say that for many kiters it will be a one quiver kite. Forget having one kite for big air and one for freestyle moves, one for foiling and one for looping. The new Slingshot RPX V1 will be your best friend, no matter the condition.
