Description

The result is a kite with smoother handling, faster steering and a shorter depower stroke, allowing you to dump power instantly. The Hybrid Flex Struts are controlled by the precisely tuned ratio of Penta TX and STW70 adjusted to each size. The percentage of flex material in the tip struts decreases as the size increases. The new wing tips open up and flex when under pressure from the back lines, making for a super fast and near-instant initiation into the turn. The legendary wind range remains, with plenty of low-end power allowing you to get out whatever the conditions, while the top end keeps you on the water for longer. The Neo SLS features a Penta TX and Trinity TX construction, which combines lightweight materials and exceptional durability, resulting in a kite that is noticeable lighter than regular constructions. This weight reduction enhances the drifting capabilities of the Neo SLS, allowing you to execute your moves effortlessly on the wave without worrying about the kite. Even when depowered with the bar pushed away, the Neo SLS maintains its dynamic handling and steering, ensuring you retain full control while riding the wave. The kite’s responsiveness remains unchanged, providing a seamless experience throughout your session. To ensure the kite can be versatile and meet the demands of wave riders and strapless freestylers, the Neo SLS offers multiple settings on the tips, allowing you to tailor the kite’s performance to the specific conditions of the day. Whether you’re indulging in a flatwater strapless freestyle session or playing in the waves, you can set the kite for maximum pop and powerful loops or fine-tune it for maximum drift and rapid turning speed, depending on your preference and the nature of the session.

The Neo SLS has long set a standard for wave riding performance, and this year the enhanced performance takes the kite to new levels, both on the waves and in the air.

INCREDIBLE DRIFT – THE NEO SLS IS FAMOUS FOR ITS INCREDIBLE DRIFTING ABILITIES; THE SLS VERSION IS UP TO 15% LIGHTER THAN THE STANDARD VERSION ALLOWING THE KITE TO FLOAT DOWN THE LINE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
INCREDIBLY DYNAMIC HANDLING/HYBRID FLEX STRUT – THE TURNING SPEED OF THE NEO SLS IS EXCEEDINGLY QUICK, AND THE SLS VERSION TAKES THINGS UP A LEVEL. THE NEW HYBRID FLEX STRUT ALLOWS THE KITE TO TWIST AND CHANGE DIRECTION QUICKLY, AND THE LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION REDUCES THE KITE’S ACCELERATED MASS, MAKING IT FASTER AND MORE RESPONSIVE.
RESPONSIVE STEERING EVEN WHEN DEPOWERED – THIS IS ONE OF THE UNIQUE AND ENCHANTING FEATURES OF THE NEO SLS, ITS ABILITY TO BE DIRECT AND DYNAMIC, EVEN WHEN THE BAR IS PUSHED OUT, AND THE KITE IS DEPOWERED. THIS FEATURE ALLOWS YOU TO RIDE THE WAVE HOW YOU LIKE WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT BAR AND KITE CONTROL AS MUCH.
INCREDIBLY POWERFUL WITH MASSIVE DEPOWER – THE RANGE OF THE NEO SLS IS LEGENDARY! IT HAS A HUGE BOTTOM END, MEANING YOU CAN GET GOING ON A SMALLER KITE BEFORE OTHER RIDERS; THIS, COUPLED WITH IMPRESSIVE DEPOWER, HAS YOU OUT RIDING FOR LONGER WHEN THE WIND PICKS UP, AND YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH A SMALLER QUIVER.
SLS CONSTRUCTION – THE SLS CONSTRUCTION HELPS REDUCE THE OVERALL WEIGHT OF THE KITE AND IMPROVES PERFORMANCE BY MAKING THE FRAME STIFFER. IN ADDITION, MATERIALS LIKE PENTA TX AND TRINITY TX MAKE THE KITE LIGHT WHILE OFFERING EXCELLENT DURABILITY.
GEOMETRY TUNED TO SIZE – THE LARGER KITES HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO USE A WIDER ARC AND HAVE LESS SWEEP IN THE TIPS MAXIMISING POWER, WHILE THE SMALLER SIZES HAVE MORE SWEEP AND A NARROWER ARC WITH A FOCUS ON MANOEUVRABILITY.
