Kite and bridles, kite backpack, bladder repair kit and quick-start guide.
More info: Slingshot has reworked and refined the Rally over the years to polish the kite into what it is today. In 2016 we made some slight adjustments to the geometry and bridles to increase handling and steering speed. Those changes were very well received, so we’ve carried them over for 2017 and have added a couple other subtle modifications. For sizes 8, 9 and 10 we’ve made very subtle changes in geometry and strut diameter to clean up the canopy ever so slightly. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material. This decreases trailing edge flutter and increases durability. We reinforced the one-pump inflation valve’s connection to the bladder to help prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/detachment. Finally, we added two Kevlar patches to prevent bridle rub on the trailing edges.
Customize power, bar pressure, response and handling with multiple attachment points:
The Rally features multiple attachment points that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly depower or for riding waves, to name a few.
Bomber Slingshot construction:
Have unrivaled confidence in your gear, and in your investment, with bombproof Slingshot construction: Slingshot coined the term Surf-Tough more than a decade ago, and today we take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Slingshot’s bombproof durability gives riders the trust and confidence they need to push themselves, and their gear, to new limits. As an investment, due to superior construction and durability, Slingshot kites hold up exceptionally well over time and have a high resale value. Slingshot designer Tony Logosz has defined quality kite design and innovation since day-one by. Many major construction techniques popular today started with Slingshot.
Split Strut technology:
Ride with confidence and control with a stronger, more stable and more ridged canopy. Created by Slingshot, SplitStrut technology has become the gold standard in kite design. SplitStrut integrates the kite’s canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece. This is a major design element in all of Slingshot’s kites, and it results in a stronger, more stable and far more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
Save time and energy with Slingshot’s ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM:
Slingshot invented the one-pump concept years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how important it really is.
