Progression / Evolution / Performance
The all-new Code V1 debuts as one of the team's favorite kites. Its performance versatility in every condition for every discipline builds trust with everyone that rides it. Sharing big-air design DNA with our popular Machine, the Code is built on a three-strut platform and is lighter and more maneuverable. The medium-aspect ratio, Hybrid Open C shape provides intuitive handling, amazing range, great sheet-and-go performance while still maintain incredible bar feel. Plus, the responsive wingtip design create effortless water relaunch for all riders. Extending high performance to all riders of all skill levels, the Code V1 is one of the most versatile kites we've ever built.
Why We Made It

NEW Refined Kite Geometry
The Code V1 features proprietary kite geometry brought forth by our design team. This new shape and profile have ushered in incredible all-around performance versatility in an easy-to-use and intuitive package.
NEW Reduced Weight Dacron
At Slingshot we are constantly testing and researching new materials. We have implemented a new Dacron in our leading edge and struts that is lighter and more rigid than our past Dacron frames.
We drastically reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This reduction decreases the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
Streamlined Pulley-less Bridle System
By eliminating pulleys, riders will feel a more instant and direct input from the kite. We use ultra-thin and static bridle lines. Riders will feel less drag through the air due to this streamlined bridle system.
One Pump Speed System
The patented Slingshot invention has gotten an upgrade. We have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow and repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
Hybrid Open C Canopy
Three struts keep the kite's overall weight down while enabling lightning-fast response and intuitive handling. The Hybrid Geometry provides amazing wind range, instant water relaunch, and unlimited freeride potential.
4x4 Canopy Tech
The Code V1 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop nylon, which creates the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy on the market. Your kite will last longer and feel more stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
Multiple Attachment Points
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power, and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session.
