2018 Slingshot Z Kite
• Easiest relaunch of any kite around
• Stable, predictable and smooth even in rough conditions
• Great kite for entry-level progression
• Turns fast, boosts big
• Kite of choice for instructors and schools around the world
The Z has been an instructor and kite-school favorite for years due to its user-friendly behavior, stability in even the worst wind conditions, amazing depower and ridiculously easy relaunch.
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.
You’ll love the Z if you’re a rider who wants the safest, most user-friendly kite possible without sacrificing performance or progression.
Package includes: Kite, Kite Backpack, Bladder Repair Kit, Quick-Start Guide, IRS Bungee Replacement, Pump Hose with One Pump Speed Valve Adapter
Z bridle: The Z features a four-point pulleyless bridle system. This gives the kite its impressive range, depower and ease of relaunch and provides stability and structure to the canopy during high winds and gusty conditions.
One-Pump: Slingshot patented the One-Pump system years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how nice it really is.
Spherical-C profile: The Z kite has been a kite-school favorite for years due to its well-mannered behavior, great depower and amazing relaunch. The secret recipe for these user-friendly characteristics is its stubby Spherical-C shape, pointed Axis wingtips and four-point bridle system.
