The SST is fine-tuned to fly deeper in the window than most kites. This, combined with the kite’s shape and bridle setup, yields hero-level downwind drift and steering response even when tension on the lines is minimal. It’s the park-and-ride performance that you dream about. It pulls you into position, drifts with you like a shadow, then re-engages at the flick of a wrist. To better hold up to the surf, the SST features reinforced surf-tough canopy paneling designed to take a beating if it goes through the wash and a condensed version of our IRS bungee that cannot get wrapped around the wingtips.
Legendary Slingshot designer, longtime surfer and foiling fanatic, Tony Logosz, designed the SST as his ultimate kite, and he has flown it exclusively since it launched three years ago. For foilers and dedicated wave riders who favor downwind drift and feather-light control above all else, it’s a no-brainer. For cross-over riders, the SST is a great choice if you frequently use a directional (surf board), enjoy downwinders or want a playful kite you can whip around without getting yanked off the water.
