POWER / SLACK / CONTROL
The RPX kite boasts several innovative features that set it apart from its RPM predecessor. A completely redesigned trailing edge has eliminated areas of turbulence, drag, and flutter, resulting in a smoother, more efficient ride. The kite also incorporates a new streamlined Fly-Line Bridle System with a diameter of just 1.6mm, which is 25% smaller than the previous version. This new system is stronger, lighter, and allows the kite to move through the air with less drag. The canopy of the RPX has been re-designed, with 88 fewer panels than the RPM, resulting in a significant reduction in weight and cleaner airflow. This unique combination of performance and comfort allows riders like world champion Carlos Mario to progress and perform at the highest levels.
WHY WE MADE IT
We built the RPX to create the next evolution in freestyle kite design. Why do freestyle kites need to lack versatility and performance? They don't. The RPX was built to bridge that gap and create the highest performing yet most versatile freestyle kite on the market. Whether you are Carlos Mario or aspiring to be, the RPX will help you execute that next handle-pass with world-class style and precision.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
Designed to help riders progress in their freestyle journey, the RPX is faster, lighter, and more technologically advanced than its predecessor, the legendary RPM. The kite boasts exceptional performance and handling, as well as an extensive range, depower, and upwind ability. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, the RPX is an outstanding choice for anyone looking for a high-performance yet user-friendly freestyle kite.
NEW REDESIGNED TRAILING EDGE
A completely redesigned edge has allowed us to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag, and flutter.
NEW CLEAN CANOPY
We reduced canopy paneling from 108 individual panels to 20. This reduces the kite's overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
NEW STREAMLINED FLYLINE BRIDLE SYSTEM
The Fly-Line bridle is an innovation we used on the RPM for the past two years. During the development of the RPX, we wanted to push the possibilities of that bridle even further. By using more premium materials we were able to reduce the bridle line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this new streamlined bridle.
4 X 4 CANOPY TECH
The RPX is built with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value, and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
OPEN C CANOPY
This flatter C shaped arc offers extensive range, depower, and upwind ability while also providing accurate handling and energetic response. This harmonious blend of performance and comfort enables you to progress and perform no matter if you are competing in the GKA or learning your first handle-pass.
NEW ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
The patented Slingshot invention now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade. We have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow for easier inflation as well as repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
A Slingshot invention that has been borrowed industry wide, Split Strut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable, and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
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. Even slight changes to these settings can make an enormous impact on the kite's overall performance, making this a useful tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
