The magic of the Z comes in its low-aspect Spherical-C profile and pointed Axis Wingtips. This stubby shape, combined with a four-point cascading bridle setup, results in an extremely stable and well-behaved kite. “It’s a kite with no bad habits,” says Slingshot CEO Jeff Logosz. And don’t let the description fool you- the Z is great for beginners, but it is not a “beginner kite.” The Z boost big, unhooks well, loops with ease and has grown a reputation among experienced riders as a super-fun all-around freeride kite.
