Slingshot SST V7
Speed / Drift / Response
- The Slingshot SST V7 delivers hero-level drift, speed, and response to maximize your fun on a surfboard, foil, or twin-tip
- Faster, lighter, and more technically advanced than its predecessor, the SST V7 is the next evolution of a kitesurfing kite
- Favorite kite of Slingshot athlete and kitesurfing pioneer, Ben Wilson
- Key Improvements include faster turning, as well as increased upwind performance and water relaunch
The Slingshot SST V7 was built to deliver next-level speed, drift, and response while also providing the rider with great upwind reach and quick water-relaunch confidence
Slingshot SST V7,The Legendary wave kite
The Slingshot SST V7 uses our thinnest and lightest struts ever. These smaller diameter struts provide plenty of overall structure to the kite while still keeping down weight and drag to enable next-level drift and response.
NEW REDUCED WEIGHT DACRON
Slingshot are constantly testing and researching new materials. They have implemented a new Dacron on the leading edge and struts that is lighter and more rigid than past Dacron frames. This means a quicker responding kite and improved light wind performance.
RAPID RESPONSIVE WINGTIP
The additional curve of the SST V7’s wingtip combined with Slingshots IRS bridle technology provides added speed and responsive handling, which has completely revolutionised its upwind performance and water relaunch.
STREAMLINED PULLEY-LESS BRIDLE SYSTEM
By eliminating pulleys, riders will feel a more instant and direct input from the kite. Slingshot use ultra-thin and static bridle lines. Riders will feel less drag through the air due to this streamlined bridle system
ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
The patented Slingshot invention has gotten an upgrade. Slingshot have increased the One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow and repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable
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.
4X4 CANOPY TECH
The SSt V7 is built with Teijin 4×4 reinforced ripstop nylon, which creates the strongest, stiffest, and most durable canopy on the market. Your kite will last longer and feel more stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
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.
