Slingshot 2015 Lineup....

Postby CaptainArgh » Thu Jun 12, 2014 2:13 pm

Whattya got?

By this time there should have been some demos or presentations to dealers. Any buzz on what we can expect for 2015?

Usually they release the new lineup of Fuels, Rallys and boards in early July. Come on folks, lift up the skirt.... just a little bit, and let us peek at the goods.

Personally I wish the kite companies did it Jan to Jan as this would truly reflect the year or even better (IMO) come out with version every other year. That way my kite kite would be newer for longer and they would have longer to do proper R&D on a new tweak to the kit. Rather than the usual colour change or slight change to the bar which is generally colour again. :thumb:

Don't get me wrong I do get excited about new kit, but I never really buy a kite till the start of summer and half a year later the new model is out :(

agree, love my 2011.
'15 just looks like an rpm with long ears.
but hopefully this means it will pull like a mule and kick like a wild ass..

Hope they will launch wave-dedicated kite with small sizes. Rally is good all-round, but not the best wave kite for sure. Many friends gone from SS after they started to ride waves.

I did hear there was going to be a 2015 Wave kite from Slingy...based on 'Z' kite maybe?

Ahhh but realize what that offers bargain hunters! A huge sale on the prior year with no real difference except the colors :rollgrin:

Granted I suppose it depends on whether you are a full retail, brand new, willing to suffer 30% depreciation when you drive it off the lot kind of guy or are you a cheap bargain hunter.

Reinstra was also riding a new board but blew out of the fast track on his final run... He was bustin 1 footed bankrolls haha. As much as i love the ss brand... slingshot needs to do away with the track system, its terrible. I blew out the system with my ss Reflex and getting close to blowing out the track on my warrantied reflex. My buddy just blew out the track on his new vision as well. A for effort but suck up your pride and get rid of it.... Kites are dope!
