From Slingshot:

We changed everything with the introduction of the RPM five short years ago. It’s proven “Open-C” canopy design and Slingshot’s patented Split Strut technology continue to push kite design to a new level even today. The RPM created (and still dominates) the 3 Strut “Open-C” category.

Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made steady improvements and subtle refinements until reaching the pinnacle it is at today. The 2013 RPM Crossover kite is a powerful combination of aggressive freestyle characteristics and progressive crossover performance. It’s low profile wingtips increase turning speed and reduce drag, while the custom attachment points optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning from freestyle to wakestyle in seconds. Inspired by our world class team, the RPM delivers unmatched out of the box performance with many options for personal customization.

Over the years, we have built a full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver. From dominating freestyle to hard core crossover, the 2013 RPM retains it’s standards of durability and stability along with it’s aggressive look and feel on the water.
