THE FEATURES ON THE NEW RPX V1
1. NEW Redesigned Trailing Edge: A completely redesigned edge has allowed Slingshot to eliminate areas of turbulence, drag and flutter. This has ushered in next level response out of the kite as well as better return to the top of window during kite loops and Megaloops.
2. NEW Clean Canopy: Slingshot have reduced canopy paneling from 108 individual panels to 20. This reduces the kites overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
3. NEW Streamlined Flyline Bridle System: The FlyLine bridle is an invention Slingshot used on the RPM for the past two years. During the develop-ment of the RPX, they wanted to push the possibilities of that bridle even further. By using more premium materials they have been able to reduce the bridle line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this new streamlined bridle.
4. NEW One Pump Speed System: The patented Slingshot invention now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade. They have increased our One Pump tube diameters for cleaner airflow for easier inflation as well as repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
