Includes Tyrant Kiteboard, FCS II Reactor GF Tri Fin Set, pre-installed EVA Surf Pads and Symmetrical Surf Straps.
FLUID X VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM: Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and its visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything you've experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, Slingshot has managed to give their boards a polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
WVX CONSTRUCTION: WVX construction is built with layers of bamboo wood, resin and weaved lightweight fiberglass combined with a strong EPS core. During each layered step vacuum bagging techniques are used to enhance the bonding strength. Proprietary to Slingshot, this construction controls the durability and flex of the board. The result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. A final layer of glass provides the highest fit and finish of any kite surfboard on the market.
SYMMETRICAL SURF STRAPS: Redesigned and better than ever, Slingshot's Symmetrical Surf Traps are built with super cushy ergonomic EVA and then wrapped in a neoprene cover. These straps feature a quick and easy buckle system which means no more Velcro! This system fitas a wider variety of foot sizes and will definitely add some style to your riding.
EVA SURF PADS: Pre-installed impact absorbing pads that provide soft cushy traction for your feet.
FCS II TOOL-LESS FIN SYSTEM: A high quality efficient keyless system for quick fin installation and release. The FCS II Fin system requires no grub screws or keys to secure the fins to the board. Fins can be easily inserted and removed in seconds, allowing you to adapt your equipment to the conditions, on land and in the water. A recessed leading edge with a flush base connection improves water flow. These features not only create a sturdy anchorage to the board, but minimize water disruption through a more flush and seamless transition between the fin and the board surface. Constructed in a lightweight composite frame encapsulated by high density foam means reduced weight and ensured flex. The FCS II system has been tested to over 4,000 cycles (installing and removing the fin). Under normal conditions, the FCS II system will outlast the life of the board.
LEGENDARY SLINGSHOT CONSTRUCTION: Premium materials, innovative design and constant testing to ensure long lasting durability and performance.
