2013 Slingshot RPM

Sizes: 4.5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 12m, 14m

We changed everything with the introduction of the RPM five short years ago. It’s proven “Open-C” canopy design and Slingshot’s patented Split Strut technology continue to push kite design to a new level even today. The RPM created (and still dominates) the 3 Strut “Open-C” category.

Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made steady improvements and subtle refinements until reaching the pinnacle it is at today. The 2013 RPM Crossover kite is a powerful combination of aggressive freestyle characteristics and progressive crossover performance. It’s low profile wingtips increase turning speed and reduce drag, while the custom attachment points optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning from freestyle to wakestyle in seconds. Inspired by our world class team, the RPM delivers unmatched out of the box performance with many options for personal customization.

Over the years, we have built a full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver. From dominating freestyle to hard core crossover, the 2013 RPM retains it’s standards of durability and stability along with it’s aggressive look and feel on the water.

I hope it won't fall appart like my 2005-2006 Fuels did.
Will never even consider testing a Slingshot product. Customer service and claim policy is crap and SS won't take any responsability for their kites or boards.

If you look for best prices of Slingshot RPM you get it in South Africa, save money on your kites to pay for your kitesurfing holiday: Inexpensive Slingshot RPM

Simply the best kite in the market, no wonder that it is the most sold kite worldwide for many years by now.

I don't agree with anything you have said.

I have had great customer support.

Must have done something wrong. My 2005 fuel is still going but needs a new LE bladder. Got six hard riding years out of it and still useful if I choose to take it out of retirement. 2009 fuel held up to tons of abuse but then I tore it up on oyster shells. My 2011 fuel rocks.
This is the typical slingshot experience.
Can't speak to service issues in the post-Schey era - because No service is required, the kites are solid!
Check your compstick CL occasionally and replace the CSS bungy as needed, ride on...
