2021 NEW SLINGWING V2
Green or Orange
Wingsurfing has exploded as a discipline over the last year and Slingshot has
been taking notes.
The all new Slingwing V2 has been engineered to check all
The first design factor in a performance wing is ultra-light weight
construction, and the Slingwing V2 comes in at half the weight of the original.
A light-weight build provides for effortless wrist control and oscillation cancellation
while luffing the wing and leaving the power behind you. Beginners will benefit
from reduced arm fatigue in light air conditions, while advanced riders will find it
dramatically easier to get the wing flying for deep water starts on tiny boards.
The Benefits of Forward Pull
Next up is the desire for more forward pull through your front hand and out
through the nose of your board. The Cambered Dihedral shape aides the rider in
getting up onto the foil not only with increased forward board speed, but by also
providing a constant tractor like pull.
The forward pull designed into the wing
allows the rider to push the board forward in the water with their legs against the
pull of the wing, increasing waterflow over the foil and proving lift. The constant
forward traction allows you to keep the board chugging forward to pick up even
small wind-swell for an added boost of speed and lift.
Designed to Fly with You
No matter your level, the rider wants a wing that has a slight lift during 1-handed
flight while luffing or transferring. Nobody likes a wing that wants to dive towards
the water while mid-tack or while luffing down a swell.
The Leading-Edge Handle
and new Transfer Handle have been placed to compliment the wings slight
upward pull so that the wing is always floating perfectly within reach. Much of
the joy of winging on a foil-board comes from ditching the power of the wing
and holding the LE Handle with one hand, effortlessly cruising from swell to swell
playing with the energy in the water.
Since the rider will spend as much time
possible luffing with one hand on the LE Handle you want the softest material
you can get under the LE Handle to keep from grinding down the skin on your
knuckles each session. The same comfort factor goes for all the other handles
where Slingshot has made sure to keep handle areas free of any rough seems.
