2012 Slingshot RPM With Youri Zoon

PKRA World Champion Youri Zoon introduces the 2012 RPM to the world.


The RPM is the original “Open C” kite that started it all. It has evolved to become the kite that took Youri to a world title and has become a riders favorite throughout the world in just a few short years.


Building on it’s dramatic success of the Open-C canopy and Slingshot’s patented Split Strut technology, the RPM pushes kite design to a whole new level. Inspired by Youri’s world dominating performance on the tour, we modified the wing tip attachment points to optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning customization. These additional features and the new 7m allows complete versatility in all conditions and all riding styles.


The 2012 RPM sets the standards of durability and stability while maintaining it’s legendary flying characteristics and aggressive look.


Big thanks to our friends at EyeForce and of course Youri!
