WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE 2018 KAROLINA PRO
Although proven capable of winning world titles, you don’t have to be a competitive freestyle rider to love the Karolina Pro. With moderate rocker (less than a dedicated freestyle board), the KP can be classified as an all-around board that excels in a variety of conditions. If you’re a motivated female kiter who rides hard and wants a bomber board that won’t hold you back, the Karolina Pro is for you.
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.
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.
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.
