Our Testers Say:

“Versatile all around kite that is stable, goes upwind well with medium to heavier bar pressure. The new tuning cleat makes trimming even simpler; be sure to sheet out when pulling trim, it’s much easier,” Jason Kane.

“Grunty ride with fun boosts, lots of hang time, with medium-paced pivotal turns that are good for big air; this kite comes alive in the higher end,” Dray Murray.

“This kite makes a lot of power for its size with very steady pulling power without having to move the kite much; all around kite does everything well,” Aaron Stephens.

TKB Says:

The Rally is 5-strut delta hybrid kite that for this year uses the standard 9mm/11m dump valves for inflation (the 2015 release is around the corner and will feature the large flow bayonet valve that is now available on the RPM), a single setting fixed front bridle with three steering settings on the wingtip, and overall beefy construction. Testers gave the RPM high praise for its fun and easy to use big air boosting and hangtime capabilities, as well as its good stability and excellent water relaunching. Testers liked the quick steering response, with predictable pivotal turns and medium plus bar pressure.

SLINGSHOT-RALLY-BAR-2015-GEAR-REVIEW-04
The Rally came with the Compstick, a simple yet feature rich fixed length bar (43, 50, 58cm) that uses a single center-line safety depower, spectra sheeting/throw line, low V, sliding stopper and below the bar cleat tuning integrated into the push away quick release. There’s no travel guard or below the bar hand swivel but the quick release is compact and keeps a large amount of throw travel within reach of the rider. There’s an above the bar swivel, adjustable length throw and the only bar in our test that featured dual outside line OS handles. Testers liked the smaller diameter grip, mild texture and raised volcano at the insert to avoid pinched fingers. Many of our testers were not familiar with below the bar tuning, but by placing it on the side of your favored arm and sheeting out when adjusting it’s fairly easy to trim the kite.
