2014 Slingshot Rally demos for sale.

Postby Bob » Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:47 pm

2015 Rally demos just arrived even before the release of the new kites, so it's time to sell my demo 2014 Rally's.

2014 Rally is a jumping machine with tons of low end pull. Great relaunch, cool graphics and medium bar pressure and turning speed.

10m = $1799.00...sell for $999.00 (SOLD)
12m = $1899.00...sell for $1,079.00 (SOLD)
14m = $1979.00...sell for $1,129.00

I'm not yet selling my 8m and 6m unless someone wants to make an offer.

All are in very good condition and the 14m has a small pinhole in the canopy that has sail repair tape covering.

All 3 kites have about 10-15 sessions on them.

Thanks for looking.

Hey Bob,

as always you offer some killer prices!

I'm eager to hear your thoughts on the 2015 Rally hoping they would refresh the 2012 design concept...

Cheers

Pier,

I'm heading out of town as we speak for a big Flyboarding group/party. Give me a day or 2 to respond.

Thanks,

Basically one would hope they took 2012 model, put a large diameter inflate/deflate valve on it, used that new light canopy fabric, put rubber bands on the bar tips, color code the lines to see them on snow. That's all.
And yeah, one more thing - since introduction of split strut it would also be nice to sew in little straps or strap loops for camera mount on the center strut strategically put where the strut is at the right angle to point camera on the rider.
Not asking for much, am I? :)

Wait, that's not all.
Sewn in glow-in-dark/high-reflect stripes on the inner side of the wing, and some on the bar would be cool too.
Should we all get European email addresses and request these things from Slingshot...?

hehe....yea, some good stuff there Grigory. I would agree with all of those ideas.

Pier,

2015 Rally is basically same as 2014 Rally with a few very minor tweaks and cool graphics. No need to change much at all with this kite for those who want a big boosting all around awesome kite. Is it a 2012 Rally? No and here's why.

I've had a lot of discussions with Slingshot in the last few years and they are coming out with a wave kite in 2015 that will be based off of the 2012 rally with added performance. I have not said anything online yet, so here it is. Can't say how stoked I am to hear this and they also promised to let me try some of the prototypes once they are ready so our crew can give some feedback on the performance. My guess is sometime late summer/early fall for the prototypes. The kite will then come out in 2015.

Hope this help,

Bob

Bob,
I hope slingshot hears you on these suggestions! I bought my 2012 Rally's last year based on your suggestions and LOVE them.

The 2013 is a great kite too, but not for my style. It is a great freeride kite. Safe, easy relaunch, cranks upwind, tough.
Totally different from the 2012. Should have had a different name.

Keep me abreast of surf kite developments.

Rorke,

They should have called the 2013 and 2014 and now 2015 Rally's a different name than the 2012's for sure. I though Rally R would have been a good name for the current new Rally's and we'll see what they name the new wave kite for 2015. I've given them a perfect suggestion, but we'll see. Rally W. or Rally Wave are my thoughts which will build on the Rally name and since the wave kite will be based on the Rally 2012, it kind of makes sense.

Grigory nailed it on his suggestions also. Colored lines and big valve with bar bungy's would be great.

I have to say the 2014 and 2015 Rally's are awesome kites, but different than the 2012 in a good way unless riding waves. Jumps are huge, rips upwind and now that I'm riding foil boards, they work really well on those, but I haven't tried any other kites yet on the foils to compare.

Have you tried foil boards yet? Crazy cool, but not for everyone.

Thanks for the feedback Rorke.

Hi Ben,

Yea...I think there will be a lot of people waiting for the 2012 Rally clones (new wave kite) to arrive in 2015. Taking pre-orders and deposits starting now, right?

See you on the water soon and thanks for sending your friend my way.

Nah, folks come on....2012 is a two year old model. Why would anyone want to want that kite?

Grigory....have you ever ridden nice clean peeling waves with a 2012 rally? Or any waves with a 2012 Rally? That would answer your question.

The 2015 will be based on this kite with some small changes.

I could bet you'd be the first one to answer that tease :)
I'd ride Rally anywhere, there are many things I love about that kite. Great (not the best but great) upwind, stability, nice jumps, gusts handling, relaunchability, no pulleys, 3 struts - pretty much Slingshot put together a great kite right there. I'm not a wave rider so I can't speak of the drift but knowing you I guess there would be another check mark on the list.

Now to the point - where do I get my membership card for 2012 Rally cult?

My fave kite is the 2011-12 Rallys that I fly.. Light bar pressure, turns on a dime and flys across the window very nicely. I try to treat them good to keep em going long enough till they blow up and I get a new caution to replace it or a direct replacement for the 2011-12 if they ever get around to remaking that specific kite. Dont think they ever had to change anything with that kite... they lost a customer in me when they started screwing with it.

Mrgrey.....keep those 2012 Rally's close and tight until 2015. The 2015 Slingshot wave kite will be released in calendar year 2015 and it will be based off of the 2012 Rally.

Maybe slight changes, but nothing major.
