2012 Slingshot Z Kite Package Deal

This package is complete with kite, kite bag, bar and lines, kite leash, kite pump, board with pads/straps/fins/handle/hardware, and harness w/spreader bar/spreader bar pad/hook knife.

These Z Kites are ‘Color Bleed’ kites. What exactly does that mean?
These kites were purchased after being stored slightly damp so the sail colors have bled from one to another. The severity of the color bleed is different from kite to kite, unfortunately we are unable to check each kite to determine the severity of the color bleeding. However, each is BRAND NEW and still have complete manufacturer warranty with them.

This package is complete with kite, kite bag, bar and lines, kite leash, kite pump, board with pads/straps/fins/handle/hardware, and harness w/spreader bar/spreader bar pad/hook knife.

Announcing the first “Spherical-C” Profile. The fresh, versatile design of the Z kite gives consistent pull with controlled power and unmatched versatility. Stable and predictable in virtually all conditions. The Z kite produces huge boosts with good control and effortless relaunch.

The Z kite is loaded with the latest innovative features. However, it’s most important feature is the “plug and play” usability you will experience everyday. This includes features like our industry first pully-less bridle that delivers a direct feel, enhanced responsiveness, and unmatched upwind performance. Additional unique features like our Spherical-C Profile and Axis Wing Tip allow the kite to easily roll up off the water into relaunch. Like our other kites, the Z has been optimized for maximum range to suit all kinds of riding conditions.
