MORE ABOUT THE RAPTOR V1

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE RAPTOR V1
- Tuned for big boosts, lofty airs and aggressive performance

- Canopy supported by five struts for maximum rigidity when boosting & looping
- Will make you at least 22% more radical than your friends
NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech New for 2020 - we’ve upgraded our canopy construction 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.
NEW Hybrid Open-C Canopy - Five struts give the canopy the superior stability and rigidity needed for aggressive riding, big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions.
NEW Segmented Swept Wingtips New for 2020 - our designers engineered a new wingtip design using variable diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as water relaunch.
Pullyless Bridle No Pulleys No Problem - The Raptor is engineered around a direct connect pulley-less bridle. This gives the Raptor unmatched bar feel and input while still providing maximum wind range, turning speed, ease of relaunch and unrivalled upwind performance.
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 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.
Surf-Tough Construction - Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes through the wringer in the surf.
Split Strut - A Slingshot innovation 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 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 frame.
One Pump Speed System - A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.
Bomber Slingshot Construction - We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches, reinforced Dacron trailing edge material, reinforced leading edge seams, diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy Mark Cloth attachment, 4x4 Canopy Tech, surf tough seams and panel layout.
