2019 Slingshot Rally Kite
The Rally is a benchmark kite for versatility and has always had a dedicated following of riders who love its predictability and smooth flying characteristics. As with the RPM, it also looks different in the air to most other kites out there with its wide, open arc, For 2019 the Rally is back with new bright graphics which are a change from the usually stealthy Slingshot look.
The Rally will take you where you want to go. Upwind, downwind, back rolls, front rolls, mega boosts, waves or flat water, the Rally has done it all. It’s even crossed the Atlantic.* The Rally inspires confidence, knowing that it will make you a better rider no matter what you’re up to, your on the right kite. Great range and depower, easy relaunch, solid upwind ability, predictable performance in gusty wind, lofty hang-time and solid crossover surf performance.
The Rally features a Delta-C shape, tapered wingtips, and fine-tuned three-point bridle system. This design yields more depower and a wider wind range than more traditional shapes and makes relaunching as easy as a gentle pull on one end of the bar. Tapered wingtip provides a tight pivot radius for fast steering and mellow, predictable loops. For jumping, the Rally’s hybrid delta shape provides long, lofty airs that are great for staying under control and landing gently regardless of how high you go. For wave riding and foiling, the Rally’s feathery downwind drift makes the Rally the ideal cross-over performer, while on the opposite spectrum it also unhooks relatively well for cross-over freestyle/ wakestyle.
Build wise, the kite has a considerable amount of reinforcement which makes it a little more weighty and slightly less direct at the bar compared to a few of its stablemates, but rest assured you can give it an absolute battering in the surf and come out more or less unscathed.
