The Slingshot Fuel is back and better than ever for 2018! Karolina Winkowska, Sam Light and Reed Brady show off this hot new kite. Take a look!
They said C kites would go out of style… The Fuel Kites Traditional-C profile and wide, squared-off wingtips deliver powerful performance, the best (and backstall-free) unhooked handling of any shape in the kitesurfing industry and gut-checking loops that travel deep through the window. Relaunching this C kite is made surprisingly easy by refined leading edge and wingtip geometry. Although tuned for freestyle riding, the Fuel has respectable crossover performance. The Fuel was the foundation from which countless other kiteboarding kites were designed, and over the years it has been the catalyst that launched many of the world’s best riders into their careers.
