Slingshot Sports 2019 SST Freedom Kite
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.
The SST features a reinforced surf-tough canopy 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. Surfers love this because they can ride hard and trust they’ll pop back up when they take a tumble. Not surprisingly, beginners, instructors and schools love the SST’s durability and easy relaunch too.
