MACHINE V1 Slingshot Kite
LIFT / BOOST / HANG
An entirely new frame geometry on the Machine V1 offers crazy upward propulsion. Its very effective aspect ratio is optimized to take you to new altitudes and air times while preserving your lightning-fast turning and reaction times. The Machine V1 provides strength, stability, and an unsurpassed wind range with to its ultra-rigid Dacron frame and premium 4×4 Canopy Tech comprised of reinforced Teijin ripstop nylon. By allowing you to hold down more kite in stronger winds, this stability opens the door to bigger and longer jumps. When finishing the Machine V1, we concentrated on material science optimization for a more straightforward approach. The Machine V1’s weight is kept to a minimum for pure freeride performance and has a quality, streamlined pulleyless bridle system.
WHY WE MADE IT
To help riders of all ability levels set new height records, we created the Machine V1. The Machine V1 can fly upwind, turn quickly, relaunch with ease, and has the big-air capability to excite any rider.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
- You can set new records for height and hang time with the help of the Machine V1.
- Even when you are not, the Machine V1 is comfortable in every situation.
- The Machine V1 is one of our most technologically advanced kites yet, constructed with high-quality materials.
NEW KITE GEOMETRY
Our renowned design team’s brand-new kite geometry is included in the Machine V1. The possibility for greatest height and hang time has arrived thanks to this redesigned shape and profile.
NEW CLEAN CANOPY
We significantly decreased the canopy paneling compared to earlier kite versions. With less paneling, the kite’s overall weight is reduced and its canopy profile is made more aerodynamic.
NEW PULLEYLESS BRIDLE SYSTEM
Without pulleys, riders get a more immediate and direct input from the bar to the kite. The bridle-line thickness is decreased by 25% by switching to more premium materials. This streamlining will result in decreased air resistance, which riders will immediately notice.
NEW ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
An improvement to the 2022 version of the patented Slingshot technology, which is now utilized by the whole industry. To gain better airflow for simpler inflation, we enlarged the system’s tube diameters. We also rearranged the tubes to make them more streamlined and robust.
HYBRID OPEN-C CANOPY
The Machine V1’s canopy has five struts, which provide it the superior rigidity and stability it needs for big-air boosting in extremely windy situations. The hybrid shape offers limitless boosting potential, instantaneous water relaunch, and crazy wind range.
4X4 CANOPY TECH
Teijin 4×4 reinforced ripstop fabric is used in the construction of the Machine V1. This canopy material is the strongest, stiffest, and longest-lasting one available.
MULTIPLE ATTACHMENT POINTS
Depending on your riding style and the conditions during a particular session, you may easily fine-tune handling, power, and performance using several attachment points built into the kite.
