The Slingshot Machine V1 has been given an all-new frame geometry that provides plenty of upward propulsion. To get new heights and much more hang time with the Machine, the aspect ratio of the kite has been developed as efficiently as possible, allowing the kite to turn and react at lightning speed. The Frame of the Machine is made of super stiff dacron and has 5 struts. This combination ensures that the kite has good shape in stronger winds and it makes the kite super stable. The canvas is made of 4x4 canopy tech that is additionally reinforced by Teijin ripstop nylon, which is performed in a stable and super strong with an enormous wind range.
The bridles of the Machine are without a pulley, the resulting kite feels super direct and you can always feel where the kite is in the air at high altitudes. Despite the fact that no pulleys have been used, the Machine is still super easy to depower and the kite can easily ride upwind. The tips have adjustment options with which the Machine can be fitted to the passenger entirely to your own preference.
By removing two struts at the 15m and 17m the overall construction has been made even lighter, so that the large sizes fly even better in light winds. The aspect ratio of the 15m and 17m is well tuned to the effect that you can still make a lot of progress even in the lightest conditions.
