Slingshot wave sst 2016 vs 2017

Postby fabdimo » Fri Aug 25, 2017 8:59 pm

Hi,

I'm selling my rally because I would like to buy a wave sst quiver. I've found in a shop a wave sst 2016 new with a good price or I've to buy sst 2017 used at almost the same prize. There are many improvement on 2017 vs 2016?

And only as a couriosity (they are too expensive) what are the main new feature of 2018 SST ?

Regards

Fabrizio

Can't help you myself, but if you understand any German you can check out gleiten.tv. They have tested both the 2016 and the 2017. I like their testvideos.

I don't know much info about either the 16 or 17 but I have flown them both and could not feel any difference between them. Also, have not flown the 18 so no info there either.
Might shoot a question to Slingy themselves. They have been really good at answering questions.

Any info on this? I'm in the process of building out an SST quiver. I've got a 2017 9m. After a 12m and a 2016 has come up at a reasonable price. Is there much different on the 2017?

They took off "Wave" off the kite name in 2018. Must be not as reinforced and lighter. Would be cool if guys like gleiten or americankiteboarding posted a video comparison.

I had this email from SS last October when I asked about 2017 vs 2018 SST
There is some increased durability in the 2018 SSTs with kevlar patches by the LE bridle attachment points, surf tuff paneling and more black in the kite which helps with UV damage.

If you are looking for a good deal, the 2017 SST is excellent, if price is not a factor the latest and greatest and new durability features are a nice addition.
