Slingshot UFO Review


The 2021 UFO V1 is sweeping the market at the “Unlimited Foiling Object.”

This compact kite is available in the 3m, 5m, 7m, 9m.

When making this kite slingshot sacrificed nothing and maximized everything when they designed the all-new strutless UFO to be a 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 Teijen 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.

Some features they highlight on

  • lightest LEI kite we’ve ever made
  • Optimized for foiling 
  • The most drift and power control in our range


Fred Hope's review on instagram says, “I’m never waiting for the kite to catch up or having it fall out of the sky. Truly amazed by this kite and everything it can do. After a couple days on it I can feel my riding style change slightly and have already learned some new tricks on it.”
Kiteboarding Magazine's review said, “By removing weight and drag, you get a kite that drifts much better, which is critical for foiling. Additionally, removing the drag also means that the kite reacts quicker, turns faster, and is able to fly further forward in the wind window."
