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.
New Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Slingshot has completely redone their inserts for 2017. New Carbon Bedrock is the strongest and lightest mounting system in Slingshot history and utilizes 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"-25" (on center).
Ballistic Park Base
To meet the increasingly more rigorous demands of park and cable riders, Slingshot has completely upgraded their base material for 2017. The 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 permission to go Ballistic with this new base.
New Tapered Flex Tip Technology
New for 2017, Slingshot has introduced the most advanced flex technology in wakeboarding. Based around their renowned vertically laminated wood core, the new tapered flex tips allow for a stiffer belly, bringing the flex farther out towards the tip and tail. This allows for a whole new press experience.
Verticaly Laminated 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 underfoot. Benefits include bigger rebound for stronger pop, more forgiveness on landings and, of course, an unrivaled experience in the park.
