2018 Slingshot Asylum Kiteboard Product Details

 

Overview: You ride into darkness, taking pass after pass after pass in the glowing sunset until you nail that last trick just right. It’s not about impressing others, it’s about winning the battle with yourself. It’s the endless progression you love about kiteboarding, and with the Asylum underfoot you know you’ve got the best tool for the job. 

Rider Profile: Dedicated freestyle/wakestyle riders who specifically want a high-rocker board designed for massive pop, soft landings and unrivaled flat water performance. An upgraded Dura-Glide base gives the Asylum added durability for use on kickers, rails and sliders.

 

Carbon Bedrock inserts: One of many Slingshot innovations, our carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible we’ve seen yet. These new inserts, introduced on our 2017 lineup, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot.

 

 

Base Layups: A proper base thickness is an important detail in selecting the board that’s best for you, and we offer something for everyone in our 2018 lineup. A thick layup will give more durability for kickers, sliders, rails and other hard objects, while a thinner layup means less overall weight. 

 

 

Construction: Slingshot twin tips are hand crafted out of all wood cores. We use sustainably grown Paulownia, which gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Our vertically laminated construction harnesses the collect strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
As an added layer of protection, we finish every board with a full urethane rail to protect from inevitable mishaps and impacts with hard objects. We’ve added vibrant urethan colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
