Slingshot Slingwing V2
As low as £749.00
The Slingshot SlingWing V2 is a light weight inflatable wing that has a rigid frame when pumped up and can be packed in a small bag when deflated. No harness, control bar, lines, mast, boom or battens needed. It’s designed to be used with a foil or paddle board with enough volume for the rider to stand on and can also be used with snow sports or skating.
The SlingWing is part windsurfing, part kiteboarding and part flying, each broken down to their most basic form. When you combine it with a foil, you get an entirely new sport that simplifies the experience and gear you need to fly across the water powered by the wind. If you’re new to windsports, the SlingWing is easier, safer and more user-friendly than any of its predecessors, and if you’re an experienced wind junkie, it’s a fun and simplisticstyle of riding you’ll enjoy instantly.
The all new SlingWing V2 has an ultra-light weight construction; half the weight of the V1 original. A light-weight build providing 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.
Other features include 5 soft, comfortable handles which help you get just the right angle for that perfect, endless ride. A Cambered Dihedral shape gives you stability and lets you harmonize the wind, body and board into speed and control. Lastly, the SlingWing V2 is made of extra tough D4 canopy material that is matched with double leading-edge bladder seams allowing for higher PSI inflation and more added tension across the wing. That means no flapping.
Using the wind to propel you across the water (or land) is an addicting sensation, and the Slingwing V2 is yet another form to get your fix. You need decent board skills, but little to no sailing or kiting experience to get the hang of it right out of the gate. Its unique appeal comes from how simple it is and the freedom you feel using it. Just stand on your board, hold the wing at the proper angle and off you go. To ease power, just sheet out or let go with your back hand and the wing drifts with you like a paper airplane.
3.0m2, 4.0m2, 4.4m2, 5.4m2 or 6.4m2
Who is it for?:
One of the greatest things about the SlingWing V2 is how simple and safe it is to use. All you really need are moderate board/foil skills and a basic awareness of the wind. It was designed to be combined with foiling, and since the friction is so low, it takes very little arm strength to use once you’re cruising. It works the same without a foil on a paddle board, skis/snowboard or skateboard but may require more strength to use for extended periods.
20+ years building the most durable gear on the market. The SlingWing is built to the same standards with many of the same innovations we use in our top-of-the-line kites.
Reflex Inflatable Trailing Edge Design:
The SlingWing’s unique design features an inflatable trailing edge that completes a rigid frame around the entire wing (not just the leading edge like other designs). This makes a big difference in performance, wind and load tolerance and gives it “pitch positive” flight. The frame keeps it from flapping, fluttering and folding in the wind the way less robust designs are prone to.
Power Grip Y Handle Layout:
Multiple grip points in a Y shape along the leading edge and center strut gives you the freedom to position your hands in the ideal position no matter how you manouvre. This unique design also gives you better leverage over the wing to manipulate its angle of attack with greater precision and less strain.
Wide Boy Mono Strut:
The SlingWing’s centre strut is large and in charge, and for good reason. The wide strut profile allows the power grip handles more leverage over the center axis of the wing, which translates to an easier and more efficient control in your hands.
Skate Scuff Tough Strips:
An attention to detail that will dramatically increase durability for anyone looking to use the SlingWing as a crossover toy for skating or on the snow. Scuff strips are located on the wingtips where they are vulnerable to damage from dragging on rough surfaces.
High Pressure Valves:
For maximum air pressure in the Reflex Trailing Edge.
30 Piece Constant Curve Leading Edge:
Segmented leading edge sewn in multiple sections to create the perfect shape and taper while maintaining stiffness throughout the wing.
The Original Single Point Inflation System gets you on and off the water faster.
Leading Edge Surf Handles:
Grippy grab handles are located strategically on the leading edge to give the rider more options, more range of movement and more leverage over the wing to accommodate different conditions and uses.
Integration of the canopy and centre strut for maximum structure and performance.
Wrist Safety Leash:
The SlingWing comes with a wrist leash for safety that attaches to the centre of the leading edge.
Slingwing Back Pack:
For easy storage.
