+ Most traction in the line when riding finless
+ Fast board-speed eases line tension on the water
+ Excels at both park and boat riding
+ Medium flex great for air tricks and kicker landings
+ Big pop off the wake
One of the most difficult feats in wakeboard design is achieving an ideal balance between traction and speed; one is often sacrificed to achieve the other. The Whip, however, has both, thanks to Slingshot’s signature NACA Tech Channels. These precision laser-cut channels increase the board’s traction on edge without sacrificing glide speed. With the Whip, you can enjoy the best of both worlds: speed and freedom on rails, with reliable traction when edging. The Whip has a medium flex pattern which gives it a strong pop off the wake and plenty of snap off the water for big ollies.
+ New Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Slingshot has completely redone its inserts for 2017. Our new Carbon Bedrock Inserts are the strongest and lightest mounting system in Slingshot history and utilize 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 inches (on center).
+ Ballistic Park Base
To meet the increasingly more rigorous demands of park and cable riders, we’ve completely upgraded our base material for 2017. Our 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 our permission to go Ballistic with our new base.
