FEMALE SPECIFIC FREESTYLE

This is a board that has been groomed to excel in freestyle for the female riders who like to ride hard and aggressive. It has been developed to the demands of world champion Karolina Winkowska and boasts a smooth load and impressive pop. Being a freestyle board it is great at big air and lets you down easy thanks to a softer rocker profile, subtle V-spine and wood core construction. 

 

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

CARBON BED INSERTS are replacing lasts years Fastrack system, saving 10% on weight and increasing strength by 30%. They have used the standard M6 hardware and have reinforced it with light-weight, high-strength carbon fiber that makes it feel solid on the water. This makes the board lighter with better flex control and increased feel.

The BASE AND RAILS are lined with a layer of urethane rail, which provides dampening and protects the board from inevitable impact. For 2017, we’ve been able to achieve a broader, more vibrant range of colors for our urethane for an enhanced visual appeal.

Precise NACA TECH CHANNELS allow Slingshot to fine-tune each board in its lineup for specific performance characteristics. Channels improve water flow and board speed, grip and pop, edging and general performance and feel

The WOOD CORE boards are made in the USA from vertically laminated wood cores. This process uses the strength of the wood’s end grain and creates boards with great pop, rebound and flex characteristics.
