SLS stands for Strong Light Superior and is your gear that empowers you to push your limits and strive for peak performance without compromise.

New for 2024, the improved Rebel SLS delivers incredible performance in a very easy-to-use package with an improved low-end whilst maintaining the well-known Rebel sheet-and-go feeling; it’s the perfect tool for big air and freeriding.

Introducing the redesigned Rebel SLS for 2024, a true icon that continues to push boundaries and redefine the riding experience for a new generation of riders. This year, the design team focused on the wing tips to improve the handling and turning speed. In addition, the canopy tension was also optimised to improve the gust handling and enable the kite to keep its shape no matter the wind strength. The combination of Penta TX and Trinity TX creates a remarkably rigid kite that maintains its shape even in challenging gusty conditions, providing consistent and smooth power delivery. The addition of Flex Struts allows the tips to twist, resulting in intuitive handling and exceptionally dynamic steering. While the Rebel SLS offers impressive power, it also provides unparalleled control. With its instantaneous depower, you can confidently navigate strong conditions and achieve extraordinary heights during big air jumps. The explosive take-off and vertical boost of the kite will propel you to new levels, while the extended hangtime will make you feel as if you're floating in the air, experiencing longer flight times with every jump. Even in light winds, the Rebel SLS remains highly capable, delivering ample low-end power through quick upstrokes, thanks to its lighter weight. This reduced weight also improves drift, allowing you to swing under the kite during landings and easily recover it. The Rebel SLS is a perfect choice for freeride enthusiasts and those seeking massive jumps with long hangtimes. Light up the height scores at your local spot and go extra-large with the new Rebel SLS. 

Easiest kite to jump
The Rebel SLS is the easiest kite in the range to jump. Simply redirect and hold the edge, and you are rewarded with massive lift every time. 
Bigger Vertical Boost
For 2024 the Rebel SLS has been tweaked to improve the vertical boost this jumping machine delivers.
Instant Absolute Depower
Total control is right at your fingertips, simply sheet out on the bar, and the kite spills power faster than any other kite in the range.
Fast and Agile
The Rebel has been designed to be much more responsive; this allows you to fly the kite around the window with precision and power and get the kite to the edge of the window quickly in gusts so you can dump power when needed.
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.
Good Drift and Long Hangtime
The Rebel SLS offers excellent drift allowing you to catch the kite after big jumps and even gives you long hangtime in light winds allowing you to perform your tricks with ease.

Quote Reno Romeu

»The new Rebel SLS really changed for the better, now with faster and more continuous turning speed the kite gives you a better ability to go in even lighter wind conditions, more comfort to kite with big sizes, but still the with the incomparable DNA of a Rebel. The Rebel SLS is the easiest kite to jump high, you pull the bar and you are gone!«

TechFeature

Flex Struts

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agaility of a three strut kite, combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

Kook Proof Connectors

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

Double-V Pigtails

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

Modern Trailing Edge Design

A narrower trailing edge and a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

Anti Snag

The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

Load Distribution Panels

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

Penta TX Frame Construction

Penta TX, the guarantee for a more sporty, more precise and crisp feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. Penta TX replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron. Penta T is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite. It's responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses - the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the center strut.

Flex Struts

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agaility of a three strut kite, combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way.
