The SST lets you forget about your kite and focus on your connection with the water. It delivers precision power and performance when you need it, and a feather-light feel and hero-level drift when you want the kite to disappear. These characteristics make the SST perfect for the surf but don’t it in a box as just a wave kite. The SST is one of the most versatile freeride kites in Slingshot’s lineup. All the same great flying characteristic that makes it so much fun in the ocean translate to fun and agile open-water setup, and by far the best freeride foiling kite you’ll find.
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.
