The RPM is a light weight 3 strut kite designed for maximum kite stability and a user friendly performance feel.
In a time where kites are getting pretty crazy with design, the RPM is working off a proven 3 strut and full wing tip platform. This kite has been refined for 5 years and the 2013 RPM has us pumped up for every kite session. Most people love the RPM for the fast turning and consistent power through the entire wind window.

What we like:
The RPM is a high quality kite that is packed with features but it still does not feel cluttered or over engineered. You have plenty of bridle adjustments to really change the performance of this kite and where it sits in the wind window. We recommend riding it stock but some people like to tweak this stuff. The RPM really excels in unhooked wakestyle, performance free style and powered wave riding. The features that make it a good performance kite also lend it to work for beginners. The stability, relaunch and easy to use safety system give beginners confidence in riding the RPM. This is one of a very few kites that can work for almost all riding ability levels.
What we don't like:
Slingshot shortened the lines on all the bars except for the 14m. This makes the kite faster but you loose a little of the low end power. In extreme low winds we have had a very few people complain that the RPM is difficult to relaunch. REAL Coaches have not had this issue and found that the the RPM is easy for beginners to relaunch. Most importantly it will not invert during relaunch.
Why you want the 2013 RPM:
The RPM is a sick kite. Everyone loves it. The bottom line is that the RPM works and has 5 years of tweaks to make it work better. You will be hard pressed to find a kite as well rounded as this one. Top it off with Slingshot's proven quality and industry standard safety system and you have a kite you will love for years to come.
