2020 Slingshot Asylum Kiteboard
2020 Slingshot Asylum
What Slingshot has to say about the 2020 Asylum:
NEW for 2020, we added a tip-to-tail carbon stringer to give the Asylum's already lively wood core even more dynamic flex, spring and pop off the water. A hardcharging freestyle favorite with superhero grip and pop. This is a performance board loaded with high-tech design features and is best suited for aggressive riders who like to go big, ride fully powered and push their limits in the name of progression.

Asylum Technical Features
- NEW Inlaid Carbon Stringer
The Full tip to tail Carbon Stringer adds overall stiffness for improved response and increased pop. This Carbon also keeps the flex profile dimensionally stable for a consistent ride for the lifetime of the board.
- Continuous Rocker
A smooth, consistent curve provides a fast ride, predictable pop, great carving performance and disperses water to soften landings.
- Precision Laser Cut Channels
As a result of a laser cutting machine, all of our boards feature the cleanest, most precise construction. These changes help for cleaner takeoffs, smoother landings, better response, tons of grip, load and pop, and upwind drive.
- Atomic Wood Core
Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood's grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
- Chined Plane Rails
Designed to completely redirect spray away and down, these belly channels reduce the area of contact between the board and surface of the water. They help prevent catching an edge on fast and sketchy landings.
- Dura-Light Base
This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
- Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Light, flexible and super strong, our inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
- Singleshot Fusion Sidewalls
We've transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
