The Solo is a completely new crossover board designed by pro rider Dylan Miller and legendary Slingshot shaper Tony Logosz. Never before have we been able to incorporate so many unique performance features into one board. The Solo is the first of a whole new breed from Slingshot. It is a board that appeals to every riding environment. New tapered Flex Tip Technology creates an entirely new sensation for riding rails by allowing the rider to lock into presses without having to fight the rigidity of the board. Subtle channels located between the feet help to increase traction and stiffen the belly, giving the Solo more immediate pop off the wake, while the center V-Spine helps break up water tension for big landings, both behind the boat and in the park. The Solo also has a noticeably narrower outline shape, giving it more of a snow feel.
+ New Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Slingshot has completely redone its inserts for 2017. Our new 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 new four-pack inserts are ridiculously strong, but remain flexible, which allows for an uninterrupted flex pattern. When paired with 2017 Slingshot Bindings, they allow for stance widths ranging from 19-25 inches (on center).
+ New Tapered Flex Tip Technology
New for 2017, Slingshot is introducing by far the most advanced flex technology in the industry. Based around our renowned vertically laminated wood core, all new tapered flex tips allow for a stiffer belly, bringing the flex farther out towards the tip and tail for a whole new press experience only available from Slingshot.
+ Ballistic Park Base
To meet the increasingly more rigorous demands of park and cable riders, we’ve completely upgraded our base material for 2017. Our new 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 new base.

KTV RIDER PROFILE
You’ll love the KTV Boots if you want a setup with quick and easy entry/exit, a little more flex than the Shredtown for tweaking out those grabs and no laces to deal with.
