A great board for lighter riders, the Slingshot Sports Crisis Kiteboard is a lightweight and flexible board that won’t hold you back as you take your riding to the next level. The softer flex of the Crisis helps absorb chop and provides smoother landings for riders getting the hang of jumping, while the vertically laminated wood core makes it great for carving upwind. You'll love the Crisis if you're a rider progressing from entry-level to intermediate and looking for the best lightweight, user-friendly board you can shred comfortable in all conditions.
Package includes wood-core board, 2" (5.08 cm) kite fins and fin screws, and board handle
Carbon Bedrock Inserts: You will notice lighter boards, a more continuous flex pattern and performance that is tuned precisely for each board’s design concept. You asked for weight reduction, better flex control and increased feel. You got it. The engineers at Slingshot accomplished this by inventing new carbon-reinforced inserts, which will replace the Fastrack system on all 2017 boards. In testing, team riders quickly noticed how solid the inserts are, hence the name Bedrock Carbon Inserts. The new inserts are a Slingshot exclusive and are designed to offer you a solid connection to a board that still needs to flex. They use the industry-standard M6 hardware and are reinforced with lightweight, high-strength carbon fiber. With this development, our engineers were able to define a new level of performance and durability in twin tip construction. The insert pull strength is increased by 30%, while the overall board weight is cut by 10%
Base and Rails: Crisis: .2mm standard base. All Slingshot twin tips are lined with a full urethane rail, which provides dampening and protects the board form impact. For 2017, Slingshot's been able to achieve a broader, more vibrant range of colors for even more visual appeal
NACA Tech Laser Channels: Precision laser-cut 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
Slingshot Wood Core Construction: Every Slingshot kiteboard is hand built in the United States, in a small factory just down the road from company headquarters in Hood River. Boards are made from vertically laminated wood cores. This process utilizes the collective strength of the wood’s end grain and creates boards with unrivaled pop, rebound and flex characteristics. Nothing beats a wood core
