The Slingshot SST 2018 is a reinforced version of the SST 2017.
The SST is a true surf kite that is designed to drift downwind like no other kite. Let the kite help you to get into the wave, park the SST in front of you and rip your wave in parts. When the wave is coming to an end you can get the SST out of the parking and use it to get into the next wave.
The SST is very quick in his response and will react to every single steering movement even when the tension on the lines is really light. This makes the kite feel very light into your hands. Unless the light feel this kite is made to handle some tumbling into the waves. Thanks to the Slingshot Surf - tough construction combined with the all new black layout the Slingshot Wave SST 2018 is very durable and UV-proof.
According to our test-rides with the new Slingshot SST 2018 we concluded that it is slightly more powerful than the 2017 model, this makes is more suitable for strapless freestyle.
The Slingshot SST 2018 has a condensed version of the Slingshot IRS bridle to make it impossible for the kite to wrap around it’s wingtips.
The characteristics of the Slingshot SST 2018 are making this kite perfect for Freeride foiling too.
The Slingshot SST 2018 is ready to be tested in our Surfshop!
