WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE CRISIS
The Crisis is an excellent choice for beginners, kite schools and mellow riders who don’t need the high-performance technical features of a more advanced board. While not a “beginner-specific” board, the soft, forgiving feel is of most benefit to a more mellow level of riding.
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.
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.
