The NEW RALLY GT is the evolution of our most popular and versatile freeride crossover kite.

Package Includes:Rally GT kite, Kite Backpack, quick start guide, bladder patch kit, additional IRS bungee
A NEW three-strut canopy design, lower aspect ratio and stubby, swept wingtips give it playfully quick steering and response with ginormous wind range and depower. The relaunch on this kite takes little more than the flick of a wrist, then sheet and go with super smooth power delivery. While our other kites gravitate toward a specific condition or discipline of riding, the RALLY GT is designed to be the golden child of our lineup- good at everything, bad at none.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE RALLY GT V1
The ultimate all-around crossover kite
Lighter, faster, more range and depower, easier relaunch than prior Rally models
Boosts, loops, drifts, unhooks – this kite does it all
The most well-behaved kite in our lineup, inspires confidence and progression
NEW 4×4 Canopy Tech
New for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4×4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
NEW Three-strut Future Retro-C Canopy
Provides the ideal balance between friendly and responsive handling with stability and smooth, sheet-and-go power delivery. A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.
NEW Segmented Swept Wingtips
New for 2020 our designers engineered a new wingtip design using variable diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as water relaunch.
The IRS Bridle replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. Pulleys can be heavy, slow and inefficient. They can also create friction and unnecessary line wear. The IRS bridle’s features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft depending on the rider’s control of the kite. This travel takes time and historically pulleys were the only way we could initiate it. With the IRS bridle the bungee does it, and does it better. What used to be delayed and unresponsive now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically. This is a significant breakthrough in advancing kite performance.
Multiple Attachment Points
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes through the wringer in the surf.
A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Split Strut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
One Pump Speed System
A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.
Bomber Slingshot Construction
We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches, reinforced Dacron trailing edge material, reinforced leading edge seams, diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy Mark Cloth attachment, 4×4 Canopy Tech, surf tough seams and panel layout.

The Ride Engine Prime Shell harness is new for 2019 and features a TPU laminated composite shell that is slightly more flexible shell than the carbon Elite Series. It still has all the stiffness, support and load-spreading benefits, but with a bit more give for riders who like a softer feel or don’t care about premium carbon construction.
