Easiest relaunch of any kite around

• Great kite for entry-level progression
• Turns fast, boosts big
• Kite of choice for instructors and schools around the world
The Z has been an instructor and kite-school favorite for years due to its user-friendly behavior, stability in even the worst wind conditions, amazing depower and ridiculously easy relaunch. For 2017, by popular demand, we are making this great kite available to the masses.
The magic of the Z comes in its low-aspect Spherical-C profile and pointed Axis Wingtips. This stubby shape, combined with a four-point cascading bridle setup, results in an extremely stable and well-behaved kite. “It’s a kite with no bad habits,” says Slingshot CEO Jeff Logosz. And don’t let the description fool you- the Z is great for beginners, but it is not a “beginner kite.” The Z boost big, unhooks well, loops with ease and has grown a reputation among experienced riders as a super-fun all-around freeride kite.
You’ll love the Z if you’re a rider who wants the safest, most user-friendly kite possible without sacrificing performance or progression.
