Phantasm, phan . tasam, fan . tasam fan’taz . um,
A creation of the fancy or imagination; an apparition; a deceptive likeness of something.
This is how Noah Webster of Webster dictionary fame defined the Phantasm in 1971-2.
Jump forward to the year 2022 we now define the Phantasm very differently. You
could be excused for calling the Phantasm a 7 legged mythical creature, the
Phantasm creation was shrouded in mist and rumour for many a year. Release dates leaked, hype sheets anonymously shared on the interned, Chinese whispers galore, when will it arrive, how many wings will there be, will it be all carbon etc etc etc.
Well the truth is out, the seven legs of the Phantasm are alive and are reaching out for discerning riders.
After leading the way in the foil space with the highly regarded Hover Glide range, the Phantasm from Slingshot raises the bar to new heights.
Now foilers are levelling up to one of the most comprehensive foil systems ever built.
The seven mystical tentacles of the Phantasm have latched onto unsuspecting
