2013 Slingshot Turbine
The Turbine has proven that if you want to stay on the water and still have fun in 5-6 knots, your kite has to be light. We’ve had hard core freestyle riders like Eric Rienstra hitting kickers with next to no wind, riders in coastal swell shredding from dawn to dusk and local freeride guys who have the Gorge all to themselves long after everyone else has gone home - all on the Turbine.
Our progressive “Open Delta C” design geometry, makes it more efficient and faster in light wind much like a high performance glider or wind turbine wing, improving lift through kite speed and allowing the Turbine to fly farther forward in the window. In the wing tips, Free-Twist Tip Technology increases the narrow wind range of a large kites by positioning the bridal attachment points to let the wingtips freely pivot. This allows the trailing edge leech panel to open and twist when overpowered to prevent stall in light wind. The result is a lighter, faster feel with a wide apparent wind range and quick turning radius for such a large kite.
