The Slingshot Turbine is one of a kind kite and can't really be compared to any other kite. with a super high aspect ratio. The Turbine is as close to a foil kite as you can get in a LEI format. "Throw it, don't mow it". As Slingshot likes to say. And with good reason. with most large wind kites, It's simply getting onto the water. The Slingshot Turbine is all about a different experience all together.
The Turbine is a high-powered shape with more pull per size than any other Slingshot kite. The steering goes a tat slower, which you could expect for a larger kite. With efficiency and power on the upside, you'll get the same amount of pull from a smaller kite. Which in turns gets to faster steering. Jumps are long and elevated. Slow loops and deep through the window. Steady and powerful pull. And the upwind drive and low-end efficiency is as good as you can get before transitioning to a foil kite.
