Slingshot RPX V1
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE RPX V1
+ The RPX is one of the best all around kites on the market today. It delivers hero level performance in every category of kiteboarding.
+ Faster, Lighter, and more technically advance than its predecessor; The RPX is the next evolution of a freeride kite.
+ The RPX boasts top of the line performance and Handling as well as extensive range, depower, and upwind ability. The RPX is designed to take you to your next kiteboarding milestone, no matter what that is.
SPEED | VERSATILITY | CONTROL
Fueled by insights from the world’s most demanding kiteboarders in all disciplines, we developed the all-new RPX based on learnings from our premiere high-performance freeride kite, the legendary RPM.
EXCEPTIONAL RESPONSE & RETURN
A completely redesigned Trailing Edge shape has been implemented on the RPX. Reshaping the trailing edge has allowed us to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag and flutter. This has ushered in next level response out of the kite; meaning better return to the top of window during looping, tighter turning radius’ for surfing, and lighting fast reaction speed.
CLEAN BY DESIGN
The RPX is loaded with new technology that includes a new streamlined premium FlyLine Bridle System. This new system boasts a diameter of a mere 1.6mm which is a 25% reduction from the previous version. It’s stronger, lighter, and allows the kite to move through the air with less drag.The canopy of the RPX had been designed to meet the needs of the modern kiteboarder. This new and highly refined canopy profile features a reduction of 88 panels from its predecessor; the RPM. The result is a one-two punch of weight reduction and cleaner airflow.
OPEN UP POSSIBILITIES
The RPX has been built upon a longstanding Slingshot Invention, the “Open C Canopy.” Often overlooked and misunderstood, the “Open C Canopy” is the magic of the RPX and its predecessor the RPM. This flatter 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 per-form no matter who you are. The RPX is the culmination of our incredible journey with a wide array of athletes, designers, and inventors to create the next.
1. NEW Redesigned Trailing Edge:
A completely redesigned edge has allowed us to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag and flutter. This has ushered in next level response out of the kite as well as better return to the top of window during kite loops and Megaloops.
2. NEW Clean Canopy:
We reduced canopy paneling from 108 individual panels to 20. This reduces the kites overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
3. NEW Streamlined Flyline Bridle System:
The FlyLine bridle is an invention found we used on the RPM for the past two years. During the develop-ment 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. 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.
5. Open C Canopy:
This flatter C shaped arc offers extensive range, depower, and upwind ability while also providing accu-rate handling and energetic response. This harmonious blend of performance and comfort enables you to progress and perform no matter who you are.
6. 4x4 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.
A Slingshot invention that has been borrowed industry wide, SplitStrut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall f rame.
8. Multiple Attachment Points:
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power and perfor-mance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
2018 Slingshot Refraction 135cm
The Refraction is a solid all-around board designed to shred every condition on the planet, and take a major beating in the process. With a versatile rocker profile, it can hold its own in chop, swell and rough conditions, as well as flat water freestyle. The rocker and tip/tail shape yield great load and pop, big airs and cushy landings, while the inverted tip and tail profile prevents catching an edge during presses. The Refraction comes with wake fins for a more freestyle/wakestyle feel, but can easily be changed to standard fins for more grip and upwind drive.

- 4 x .5" Wakestyle Fins

Slingshot team rider Sam Light is a globetrotting master of all conditions, and he designed his signature pro model to be the only board he needs, no matter where he’s going. Whether he’s competing for the coveted Triple-S crown (which he has won four years straight), Magalooping at the King of the Air, freeriding in the nuclear winds of Hood River or cruising the cable park on a windless day, the Refraction is Sam’s Swiss Army knife.
Carbon Bedrock inserts:
One of many Slingshot innovations, our carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible we’ve seen yet. These new inserts, introduced on our 2017 lineup, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot.
A proper base thickness is an important detail in selecting the board that’s best for you, and we offer something for everyone in our 2018 lineup. A thick layup will give more durability for kickers, sliders, rails and other hard objects, while a thinner layup means less overall weight.
Slingshot twin tips are hand crafted out of all wood cores. We use sustainably grown Paulownia, which gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Our vertically laminated construction harnesses the collect strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
As an added layer of protection, we finish every board with a full urethane rail to protect from inevitable mishaps and impacts with hard objects. We’ve added vibrant urethan colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
