Slingshot launch the Z Series

It’s been a couple of years since we have seen a new kite from Slingshot aimed at the masses. The Turbine was a lightwind beast and a bit of a speciality machine. But the Z Series looks to be an altogether different animal. It’s a three strut affair and a development on the ‘Delta’ shape that the Rally has been spearheading for the brand. Slingshot had this to say:

“Announcing the first “Spherical-C” Profile. The fresh, versatile design of the Z kite gives consistent pull with controlled power and unmatched versatility. Stable and predictable in virtually all conditions. The Z kite produces huge boosts with good control and effortless relaunch. The Z kite is loaded with the latest innovative features. However, it’s most important feature is the “plug and play” usability you will experience everyday. This includes features like our industry first pully-less bridle that delivers a direct feel, enhanced responsiveness, and unmatched upwind performance. Additional unique features like our Spherical-C Profile and Axis Wing Tip allow the kite to easily roll up off the water into relaunch. Like our other kites, the Z has been optimized for maximum range to suit all kinds of riding conditions.”
