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.
Supercharged Kite Geometry
The Machine LW V2 features proprietary kite geometry brought forth by our legendary design team. This secret shape and profile have ushered in the potential for power generation and upwind trajectory.
We significantly 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
By eliminating the 4th and 5th struts, the design team lightened the kite while increasing its light-wind performance. The hybrid geometry provides excellent wind range, instant water relaunch, and outstanding light-wind performance.
4x4 Canopy Tech
The Machine LW V2 is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop nylon. This 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.
