2013 Rally - Completely Reinvented from Slingshot Kite on Vimeo.
The 2013 Rally is an awesome kite for beginning riders and students. We use this kite extensively. It has enough bar pressure that beginning riders get the feel for the kites’ motion while not overwhelming them. The Rally has excellent water relaunch capabilities, which is great during the early months of riding. There is plenty of depower enabling a wide range of use. The use of five struts on this years model makes the kite more stable in gusty conditions.
Reinvented for 2013, the new Rally is your go-to kite for premium surf and freeride performance. This 4-line crossover kite has been completely reengineered and features new Connect Forward
attachment points, Reflex Wingtip technology and a new bridle configuration all bundled into a surf tough construction with a reinforced trailing edge. The Rally produces unwavering rigidity and efficiency. Flying further forward in the window for optimal upwind drive, this Open Delta-C kite will also sit back in the window when you want just the right amount of resistance for load-and-pop tricks or down-the-line pull.
A kite in a class of its own, the 2013 Rally delivers maximum range, instant de-power, effortless relaunch and precise handling. Our integrated Splitstrut technology produces a rock solid canopy.
The kite also comes with our patented One Pump technology and our improved Surf Tough Construction with improved trailing edge durability. This years Rally line up includes a 7-meter to help build your perfect quiver. You’re welcome!
OPEN DELTA-C DESIGN PLATFORM
Blends the core C kite performance characteristics like power, stability, edging, control and direct feel with the advantages of the latest advancements in 4 line technology. Which include the positive Delta attributes of incredible low end power, maximized range, upwind ability, de-power, speed, relaunch, hang time and safety.
SPLITSTRUT INTEGRATED DESIGN
Splitstrut integrates the strut and canopy into one rigid wing creating a lighter, stable and more
durable kite. This construction is proven to enhance power delivery under heavy load and creates efficiency in the overall frame.
A single point steering line that is connected directly to the “sweet spot” geometry of the kite.
Optimal for plug and play convenience and performance.
The Reflex Wingtip consists of 5 key elements. The added mini strut with reflex, a soft batten and
Connect Forward with a new tip geometry all work together to deliver faster turns, improved aerodynamics, increased rigidity with more stability.
NEW PULLEY-LESS BRIDLE CONFIGURATION
Direct Feel and precise control. Enhanced responsiveness and unmatched upwind performance.
No pulley maintenance required.
NEW TRAILING EDGE SHAPE
Reduces flutter and aids canopy stability and maximizes efficiency while still allowing the panels
to open and flex.
