Product Description

2018 Slingshot Glide Kiteboard

What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Glide

With 149cm and 159cm options, the Glide is a dedicated light wind board that gives you the light wind range of a surfboard with the freeride performance of a twin tip. It's a problem solver for anyone who has ever slogged around on a twin tip hoping the wind would pick up. Beginners love the Glide because it planes early and helps them stay up wind; experienced riders love it because it handles more like a twin tip than a barn door, which many light wind boards have been compared to. Staying true to the expression “Throw it don’t mow it,” the Glide’s long, slender outline, block rail profile and mild rocker combine for a fun freeride and freestyle-friendly board you’ll be happy to take for a cruise any time the wind looks a bit too light for your standard twin tip. 

Features

  • Dedicated light-wind cruiser
  • Freestyle-friendly, surprisingly agile
  • The range of a surfboard, the ride of a twin tip
  • Your other board's wingman
  • Lively, durable wood-core construction

Board Technology

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.

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 urethane colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
