If you are looking for a lightweight ultra-simple kite to take your riding to the next level, the Ghost V1 is your friendly companion. Its Flyweight construction, one strut design, and segmented swept wingtips cover both low-and high-end wind, giving it a niche in the market.

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 Ghost V1 kite will last longer, have a higher resale value, and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in a gusty wind.

NEW Compact Swept C Shape

This design blends the steering precision and speed of a C kite with the instant on and off power delivery that comes with swept wing tip shapes. This profile also provides instant and effortless water relaunch no matter the wind conditions.

NEW Single Strut Platform

The Ghost V1 boasts just a single strut. Eliminating the excess struts makes this kite lightweight and extremely agile in the sky while also mirroring that light weight feel at the bar. Nimble turning, quick-handling, amazing power control, this is how kites should feel.

NEW FlyWeight Construction

In addition to the simple weight reduction of removing struts, we also minimised stitching, paneling, extra leading edge reinforcements to make the Ghost V1 as light as possible. Think about it this way we trimmed all the weight you don’t need while keeping what you do.

IRS Bridle System

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 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.

Split Strut

A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Splitstrut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Splitstrut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.

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 Ghost V1 kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.

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.
