MORE ABOUT THE SST V5
Designed by Slingshot’s own mad scientist, Tony Logosz, the RAPTOR features a five-strut, hybrid Open-C canopy and familiar Slingshot DNA that give it pro-level top-end performance without sacrificing the safety or user-friendly feel that appeals to a broad range of riders.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE SST V5
Tuned to fly deeper in the wind window for superior drift Remains responsive when sheeted out, de-powered and going down the line Quick and reactive steering, requires minimal bar input Versatile crossover performance for all-around free-riding and foiling.
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.
Three-strut Compact-C Canopy - Provides the ideal balance between friendly and responsive handling with stability and smooth, sheet-and-go power delivery. A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.
Swept Wingtips - Curved/swept wingtips help the kite roll up on edge for quick and easy relaunch, give the kite a more reactive feel at the bar and reduce pivot radius for tight and fast turning and looping.
Condensed IRS Bridle - A minimalist bridle that provides the canopy support and structure in a condensed format that cannot get wrapped around a wingtip in the event the kite gets rolled or tumbled. Our patented IRS bridle incorporates a bungee segment that expands and contracts under load to give the kite added response and stability.
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.
