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.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Our 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 four-pack inserts are ridiculously strong, but remain flexible, which allows for an uninterrupted flex pattern. When paired with 2018 Slingshot Bindings, they allow for stance widths ranging from 19-25 inches (on center).
BALLISTIC PARK BASE
Our 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 base material.
