PRODUCT DETAILS

Overview:
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. 

Rider Profile:
Although proven capable of winning world titles, you don’t have to be a competitive freestyle rider to love the Karolina Pro. With moderate rocker (less than a dedicated freestyle board), the KP can be classified as an all-around board that excels in a variety of 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: 
One of many Slingshot innovations, our carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible we’ve seen yet. These new inserts, introduced on our 2017 lineup, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot. 

Base Layups:
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.

Construction:
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.

2018 Slingshot Dually Pads

One ride on the Duallys and you’ll never want to go back to regular footpads again. Designed to fit any foot on any board, the Duallys are the result of more than 15 years of Slingshot innovation. We once again revamped the Duallys for 2018. They feature a new softer foam on top of your foot with a smoother and more plush neoprene resulting in a more ergonomic and comfortable ride. The result is a footstrap that will lock down tight, hold firmly in place and leave you walking away pain-free after a long day on the water. For precision fit, the Dually features a four-point adjustment system that allows for independent tightening at the front and rear of the pad. They also feature a rotating base plate that allows riders to customize their stance to their desired angle.
