Hover Glide FWIND1
Switch Fuse (Patent Pending);
Find your personal comfort zone. The ability to adjust the wing position fore or aft in relationship to your stance is critical for balancing your rig, stance and overall sailing position. Slingshot’s Switch Fuse is an ingenious design that allows the foil to be configured in two different positions to accommodate varying board setups, rider preferences and skill levels.
Rear Wing + Optimized Tail Mount:
Rider Simplicity. Universal one design that works with all front wings for all disciplines, in any configuration. The tail wing mount is solid, stable and safe. No need to shim your wing, ever.
Flat-Loc, Fuse-to-Wing Connector
Windsurf foiling, carving, jibbing and jumping puts enormous forces on the fuselage-to-wing connection. Our Flat-Loc™ Fuse-to-Wing connection is designed like a wrench on a nut. The load is married to the fuse and the wings, with no load on the bolts. Unlike bolt-on wings, the Flat-Loc™ system is safe, secure and smart.
Hover Glide Tuttle Connector
Integrated Tuttle base designed for Deep Tuttle boxes delivers maximum strength and elimination of movement. Designed with an integrated base flange that transfer loads over a larger area of the board, not just the Tuttle box. This feature is critical if you expect to use a foil with an existing board. A regular Tuttle box is not reinforced to handle the loads of the foil.
Slingshot uses the same Hover Glide aluminum mast platform for all our foil disciplines (kite, wake, sup and wind). Our masts have been tested and proven for years, by thousands of foil-boarders in three other foil sports. It is the stiffest and strongest aluminum mast on the market. Our masts are 2.5X thicker than the competition and designed specifically to take the enormous loads that windsurfing puts on the foil and mast. Extruded from aircraft aluminum, each mast is optimized by CnC machining to reduced drag and eliminate vibration. Masts are also tempered and anodized for saltwater resistance.
Nothing beats the strength of this precision milled Titanium hardware.
