Description

2018 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard

For the rider who indeed wants to do it all, the Refraction shreds in almost any conceivable situation. Just ask Sam Light, Slingshot’s top male rider - the board was designed for and by him to be the end-all be-all board. It’s plenty durable, more than enough to shred the cable park if that’s what you’re into; it’s also great just to throw insane unhooked tricks. It’s definitely designed with more advanced riders in mind, with reasonably high rocker intended to get the most pop for those aggressive riders who want to land something new every session. 

What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Refraction

Owning the right twin tip can change your entire kiteboarding experience. In an industry where it’s often difficult to decipher the difference from one board to another, Slingshot has taken the opposite approach. In this 2018 lineup, you’ll see a diverse selection of boards, each distinctly designed for different riding styles and performance features. Whether you’re a high-flying freestyle fanatic, an upwind master or a mellow weekend warrior, we’ve got the right board for you.  The Refraction is a solid all-around board designed to shred every condition on the planet, and take a major beating in the process. With a versatile rocker profile, it can hold its own in chop, swell and rough conditions, as well as flat water freestyle. The rocker and tip/tail shape yield great load and pop, big airs and cushy landings, while the inverted tip and tail profile prevents catching an edge during presses. The Refraction comes with wake fins for a more freestyle/wakestyle feel, but can easily be changed to standard fins for more grip and upwind drive.
