WAKESTYLE / PARK
The Refraction has been developed with Pro rider Sam Light and is a competition level freestyle board that is just as at home in the cable park as it is with a kite. It has a Dura-Glide base that can handle the abuse of sliders and kickers as well as an aggressive rocker and stiffer flex profile. It is designed to be ridden with boots and the Carbon Bedrock Inserts make it feel absolutely solid on the water. It also comes standard with inverted NACA tech channels on the tip and tail that provides a flattened surface for presses and slides on obstacles.
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.
All Slingshot 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.
