Super nice versatile kite for freeride, hooked tricks and jumps from Slingshot
The Slingshot Code V1 is a completely new kite within the Slingshot kitesurf range in 2023. Slingshot has created the Code V1 to offer you the most versatile performance kite on the market. A kite with which you can make your first meters on the water and grow to great heights. Whether it's your first backrolls, downloops, jumps or railys; the Slingshot Code V1 will take you to your next level.
Within the kite line-up of Slingshot, the Code V1 is the most all-round kite and therefore the perfect kite for just starting out, wanting to discover all disciplines or simply don't want to commit to one kitesurfing discipline. If you know better what you want, you can use the Slingshot SST for wave or the Slingshot Machine for Big Air.
The completely new Slingshot Code V1 is made of a new lighter weight dacron than the Slingshot kites were previously made from. In combination with the new shape of the Code V1, this ensures great flight characteristics. In addition, the canopy is made of super strong and high density 4x4 canopy tech, it is therefore not surprising that the Slingshot kites are known for their super solid construction. The power lines are attached to pulley-less bridles so that you have a nice direct feeling with the Code V1 and the kite has a direct input of everything you want the Slingshot Code to do. Various attachment points have been made on the wingtips to be able to adjust the Code V1 to your preferences in terms of steering angle and bar pressure. The Code V1 itself has a fairly light bar pressure and easily absorbs the gusts, so you quickly feel familiar with the Slingshot Code V1.
The hybrid open C canopy construction is the basis of the all-round characteristics of the Slingshot Code V1. The rounded wing tips make relaunching this kite very easy. The open design allows for a large wind range and the bridles give the Code V1 the perfect angle of attack in all conditions.
Slingshot really amazed us with the versatility of the new Code V1. An ideal kite for the novice kitesurfer up to the advanced kitesurfer who does not want to focus on one discipline. With a super solid construction and very smooth kitesurfing characteristics, it won't be long before the Slingshot Code V1 is your favorite kite!
