Slingshot: The Widowmaker & 2015 Super Grom

Slingshot have today released details of two new boards… the Widowmaker and the 2015 Super Grom.

Widowmaker
‘The Widowmaker was born out of endless prototyping and our own state of the art manufacturing facility. With our industry first construction techniques this board is the brainchild of forward thinking and innovation.’ – Slingshot

It features:
Hybrid Air Flex Core Technology – The core in the Widowmaker is built by hybridizing the natural performance of wood, foam and urethane. We use wood in areas to control flex, rocker and improve durability. The new Hybrid Air Flex Core is light and lively.

Pure Carbon Construction – We developed a proprietary carbon weave specifically for Slingshot and the Widowmaker. The result is a strengthened layup that optimizes the board’s flex to enhance feel and performance while cutting down on weight.

Shape – Building upon our industry first laser cut NACA Tech* channels, we have evolved water acceleration and kiteboard performance to a lunar level with our new Vortex NACA Tunnels. These new ultra high performance scalloped channels create a unique water combustion and propulsion resulting in out of this world board acceleration and tracking abilities.

Setup includes: Widowmaker Deck, widow maker handle, 2.0 fin set and limited edition Dually set. And here it is, at full capacity…

2015 Super Grom
‘The Super Grom is officially a hit, and with good reason! The sky is the limit for groms these days, which is why we built them a high performance board with flex technology and other great features to take their riding to the next level. The XL Slingshot Fusion Sidewalls help protect the board from impact and the ES base is designed to withstand the thousands of rail hits in the park. With the Future Response Technology the Super Grom gets bigger pop and smoother landings. The future is bright, and it’s even brighter on the 2015 Super Grom.’ – Slingshot

One for the stars of tomorrow then…
