Slingshot team rider Karolina Winkowska is in a class of her own. Friendly but fiercely competitive, humble but incredibly talented, Karolina is a true ambassador for female athletes around the world. As a two-time world freestyle champion and 2016 Kite Park League champion, Karolina needs a board that can stand up to the high-performance demands and varying conditions of her epic kite lifestyle. The Karolina Pro is exactly that.
Although the Karolina Pro model can help win you world titles, you don’t have to be a professional to feel all the benefits of this board. With moderate rocker (less so than a dedicated freestyle board), the KP can be classed as an all round board that will deliver under varying conditions. If you’re a motivated female kiter who rides hard and wants a bomber board that won’t hold you back, the Karolina Pro is for you.
Carbon Bedrock inserts:
The same construction as many of the mens 2018 models, the Karolina Pro also contains one of many Slingshot’s innovative additions. These carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible insures Slingshot have produced. These new inserts, introduced on our 2017 lineup, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot.
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.
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.
