NEW for 2020, the SlingWing is part windsurfing, part kiteboarding and part flying, each broken down to their most basic form. When you combine it with a foil, you get an entirely new sport that simplifies the experience and gear you need to fly across the water powered by the wind. If you’re new to windsports, the SlingWing is easier, safer and more user-friendly than any of its predecessors, and if you’re an experienced wind junkie, it’s a fun and simplistic style of riding you’ll enjoy instantly.
The SlingWing is a light weight inflatable wing that has a rigid frame when pumped up and can be packed in a small bag when deflated. No harness, control bar, lines, mast, boom or battens needed. It’s designed to be used with a foil or paddle board with enough volume for the rider to stand on and can also be used with snow sports or skating.
If you're thing is backcountry snow then this packable wing is ideal for riding with skis or snowboard. Compared to a convention kite, bar and lines, the SlingWing has several advantages, especially in mountainous terrain.
Slingwing Classic Technical Features:
Bombproof Slingshot Construction
We have 20+ years building the most durable gear on the market. The SlingWing is built to the same standards with many of the same innovations we use in our top-of-the-line kites.
Reflex Inflatable Trailing Edge Design
The SlingWing’s unique design features an inflatable trailing edge that completes a rigid frame around the entire wing (not just the leading edge like other designs). This makes a big difference in performance, wind and load tolerance and gives it “pitch positive” flight. The frame keeps it from flapping, fluttering and folding in the wind the way less robust designs are prone to.
Power Grip Y Handle Layout
Multiple grip points in a Y shape along the leading edge and center strut gives you the freedom to position your hands in the ideal position no matter how you maneuver. This unique design also gives you better leverage over the wing to manipulate its angle of attack with greater precision and less strain.
High Pressure Valves
For maximum air pressure in the Reflex Trailing Edge.
30 Piece Constant Curve Leading Edge
Segmented leading edge sewn in multiple sections to create the perfect shape and taper while maintaining stiffness throughout the wing.
The Original Single Point Inflation System gets you on and off the water faster.
Leading Edge Surf Handles
Grippy grab handles are located strategically on the leading edge to give the rider more options, more range of movement and more leverage over the wing to accommodate different conditions and uses.
Integration of the canopy and center strut for maximum structure
Wrist Safety Leash
Better safe than sorry. The SlingWing comes with a wrist leash for safety that attaches to the center of the leading edge.
