2017 Solo: The Solo is a completely new crossover board designed by pro rider Dylan Miller and legendary Slingshot shaper Tony Logosz. Never before have we been able to incorporate so many unique performance features into one board. The Solo is the first of a whole new breed from Slingshot. It is a board that appeals to every riding environment. New tapered Flex Tip Technology creates an entirely new sensation for riding rails by allowing the rider to lock into presses without having to fight the rigidity of the board. Subtle channels located between the feet help to increase traction and stiffen the belly, giving the Solo more immediate pop off the wake, while the center V-Spine helps break up water tension for big landings, both behind the boat and in the park. The Solo also has a noticeably narrower outline shape, giving it more of a snow feel.
Slingshot has completely revamped its mounting systems for 2017. Our new Carbon Bedrock Inserts are the strongest and lightest mounting system in Slingshot history and utilize the industry-standard M6 hardware. Reinforced by patches of carbon fiber, the new four-pack inserts are ridiculously strong, but remain flexible, which allows for an uninterrupted flex pattern. When paired with 2017 Slingshot Bindings, they allow for stance widths ranging from 19.5-25.25 inches (on center).
NEW SLINGSHOT SIGNATURE FLEX TIP TECHNOLOGY:
New for 2017, Slingshot is introducing by far the most advanced flex technology in the industry. Based around our renowned vertically laminated wood core, all new tapered flex tips allow for a stiffer belly, bringing the flex farther out towards the tip and tail for a whole new press experience only available from Slingshot.
NEW BALLISTIC PARK BASE:
To meet the increasingly more rigorous demands of park and cable riders, we’ve completely upgraded our base material for 2017. Our new Ballistic Park Base utilizes the most durable material on the market and is designed to withstand the abuse of the world’s hardest-charging riders. Whether you’re on metal, wood, plastic, dirt or grass, you have our permission to go Ballistic with our new base.
SLINGSHOT FUSION SIDEWALLS:
Now featured in vibrant new colors, Slingshot’s Fusion Sidewalls are unlike any other rail in the industry. Urethane is poured as a liquid in one single shot, then cured seamlessly into the board’s wood core without staples or fasteners. These are hands-down the most durable rails in the game.
DUAL NACA CHANNELS:
Slingshot’s diverse variety of bottom profiles is only possible through the use of a super cool high-tech tool: A laser. Precision cuts are made by the laser, which allow us to incorporate high-tech hydrodynamic designs into the tips and tails of our boards. Our channels allow for a smoother flow of water under your board and increase traction, load/pop and speed. The SOLO features dual channels along the rails for extra grip and pop off the water.
VERTICALLY LAMINATED ALL WOOD CORE: Slingshot’s vertically laminated wood core construction utilizes the collective strength of wood’s end grain to create flex characteristics unlike any other material in wakeboards. This unique construction brings boards to life with a new level of energy under your feet. Benefits include bigger rebound for stronger pop, more forgiveness on landings and, of course, an unrivaled experience in the park.
