2017 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard
After great success in 2016, the Refraction is back for 2017. The same great board that you fell in love with in 2016 has returned in a greater variety of sizes, adding a 139cm to complement the 135cm and 143cm. This built-for-competition wakestyle board gives you the tools to bring your riding to the next level. From the slicks to the cable park, this board can do it all - no matter the conditions. The inverted NACA tech channels provide an excellent flat spot when pressing on rails. With Slingshot’s Dura-Glide base, the Refraction has no problem standing up to features in kite parks or simply sliding up the beach. With Slingshot’s new Carbon Bedrock inserts, you will be able to press on features like never before thanks to the increased flex pattern.
What Slingshot has to say about the 2017 Refraction
Although you might not be able to match Sam Light’s smooth, technical style, with the 2017 Refraction, at least you’ll have the same tool for success. Sam introduced the Refraction last year as his perfect solution for needing a competition-level freestyle board that he can use all over the world, in every condition he encounters (including cable parks). Due to its popularity, we have added a 139cm model to create a full lineup. The Refraction features aggressive rocker, stiff flex and a thick and super durable Dura-Glide base. You will generate great power with or without boots and the board features inverted NACA tech channels on the tip and tail which provides a flat surface for presses and slides on obstacles.
You’ll love the Refraction if you want an explosive, competition-level freestyle board that will shred flat water, eat-up chop and withstand regular abuse from, sliders, kickers and rails.
