2019 Slingshot Dually Pads/Straps

PACKAGE INCLUDES:

DUALLY STRAPS AND PAD, UNIVERSAL M6 MOUNTING HARDWARE

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.

SIZES:  135cm

Package Includes:

  • Refraction Deck
  • 4 x .5" Wakestyle Fins
  • Grab Handle

Overview:
Slingshot team rider Sam Light is a globetrotting master of all conditions, and he designed his signature pro model to be the only board he needs, no matter where he’s going. Whether he’s competing for the coveted Triple-S crown (which he has won four years straight), Magalooping at the King of the Air, freeriding in the nuclear winds of Hood River or cruising the cable park on a windless day, the Refraction is Sam’s Swiss Army knife.

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.

Base Layups:
A proper base thickness is an important detail in selecting the board that’s best for you, and we offer something for everyone in our 2018 lineup. A thick layup will give more durability for kickers, sliders, rails and other hard objects, while a thinner layup means less overall weight.

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 urethan colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
