Z KITE DETAILS
MORE ABOUT THE Z
The magic of the Z comes in its low-aspect Spherical-C profile and pointed Axis Wingtips. This stubby shape, combined with a four-point cascading bridle setup, results in an extremely stable and well-behaved kite. “It’s a kite with no bad habits,” says Slingshot CEO Jeff Logosz. And don’t let the description fool you- the Z is great for beginners, but it is not a “beginner kite.” The Z boost big, unhooks well, loops with ease and has grown a reputation among experienced riders as a super-fun all-around freeride kite.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE Z KITE
- You’re a rider who wants the safest, most user-friendly kite possible without sacrificing performance or progression

- Great kite for entry-level progression

One-Pump: Slingshot patented the One-Pump system years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how nice it really is.
Spherical-C profile: The Z kite has been a kite-school favorite for years due to its well-mannered behavior, great depower and amazing relaunch. The secret recipe for these user-friendly characteristics is its stubby Spherical-C shape, pointed Axis wingtips and four-point bridle system.
