    The NEW Slingshot Asylum 2019

    The Slingshot Asylum 2019

    The latest and upgraded Asylum range comes in a 138- and 141-centimetre size. For the Asylum graphic, we wanted to play off the namesake so we have a full-length Rorschach test.

    The Asylum is the perfect kiteboard for any rider who's looking for the maximum grip and hold that a twin tip can offer. This means the best ‘upwindability’. It also is going to give you a lot of edge and hold down so that you can hold out more Kite which enables you to boost and jump higher.
