Houston Kiteboarding Thoughts:
We love this kite!  The UFO is the best kite slingshot has made in a long time.  The kite stays in the air in next to no breeze and sits down-wind for the ultimate free-ride foil experience.  You can jibe, tack, dance like Fred Hope on this kite with ease due to its forgiving behavior and light wind performance.  It is also dynamic in the air, easy to turn with intuitive and steady loops for transitions and tricks with the hydrofoil.  It can relaunch as well which is a nice benefit for a light wind foiling kite.  The power for it's size also allows you to fly a smaller kite than you'd think...for instance if you normally ride an 11m or 12m with your hydrofoil in light wind the 9m is all you will need.  If you're normally on a 9m for hydrofoiling than the 5m will do the trick.  EXCELLENT KITE!  Number one foiling kite in our book!  There are some things to think about before switching your entire quiver however.  The UFO is ONLY good for foiling and for some teaching but really not grunty enough for that either.  We use it for kids learning to fly the kite and maybe getting up their first time.  The UFO is TERRIBLE on a twin-tip so if you plan to do both hydrofoil and twin-tip you will need two kites.  The Ghost is a better cross-over kite that does both hydrofoil and twin-tip well.  Other than those factors the kite is perfect for a lot of riders hydrofoil needs.  Call us for more info or to get a custom invoice: 281-508-6485

UNLIMITED FOILING OBJECT

SIZES: 3m / 5m / 7m / 9m

  • The UFO is the lightest LEI Kite that Slingshot have ever produced
  • Every aspect of the UFO has been tailored for true foiling performance
  • The UFO has the most drift and power control out of any kite in our range
  • The UFO packs down incredibly small, you can fit the full quiver in your carry on; this kite is a jetsetter’s dream
  • Turns on a dime, the ultimate kite for fun flying while on foil

Package includes: UFO V1 Kite, Compact UFO Kite Day Pack

Slingshot have sacrificed nothing and maximized everything when they designed the all-new strutless UFO to be our pure, unlimited performance foiling kite. The UFO has a Compact Swept-C canopy shape for direct and instant handling, as well as insane range and power control, and an IRS bridle for immediate response. Off of that strutless design and bridle configuration, they made the canopy out of Teijin D1 fabric—the lightest weight ripstop available—and then stripped the UFO down to just the bare essentials in order to make it the ultimate foiling machine with unbelievable handling and space-age drift.


FEATURES

0 Struts
Reduces weight & drag. With zero struts, the UFO is incredibly lightweight and able to fly in the lightest of wind conditions. This reduced drag also allows the UFO to fly further forward in the wind window. This equates to better upwind angles and reaches, as well as lighter bar pressure.

Teijin D1 Canopy
The lightest weight ripstop on the market—the ideal fabric for a foil-specific kite like the UFO.

Flyweight Construction
From a .3mm bladder to reduced scuff guards to minimal stitching and paneling, the UFO’s Flyweight Construction is all about performance simplicity.

IRS Bridle
Replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. The IRS Bridle features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft. What used to be delayed and unresponsive, now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically thanks to the IRS Bridle.

Compact Swept C Shape
Compact = Excellent steering, pivoting and drift. Swept-C = Huge range with responsive power management to prevent over foiling.

Compact UFO Kite Day Pack
A minimalist, nylon kite bag, stripped down to the bare essentials. Packs down extremely small for optimum travel performance. Fit your whole quiver in your Carry-On.
