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.
The Whip was built for the tech heads of wakeboarding. The design process started with a laser and a German, and became an unbelievably exciting shape to ride. The amount of traction this board delivers while appearing relatively flat on the bottom will surely come as a surprise. It’s the perfect choice for riders who love that locked in feeling on the water. A board they can trust while they’re railing around a corner getting ready to take flight, or if someone just needs a bit more security on their landings while trying something new.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS:
Carbon Bedrock Inserts are our strongest and lightest mounting system yet Reinforced by patches of carbon fiber, the new four-pack inserts are ridiculously strong, but remain flexible, which allows for an uninterrupted flex pattern.
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.
SINGLESHOT FUSION SIDEWALLS:
Slingshot’s Fusion Sidewalls are unlike any other rail in the industry. Urethane is poured as a liquid in one single shot, then cured seamlessly into the board’s wood core without staples or fasteners. These are hands-down the most durable rails in the game.
VERTICALLY LAMINATED ALL WOOD CORE: Slingshot’s vertically laminated wood core construction utilizes the collective strength of wood’s end grain to create flex characteristics unlike any other material in wakeboards. This unique construction brings boards to life with a new level of energy under your feet. Benefits include bigger rebound for stronger pop, more forgiveness on landings and, of course, an unrivaled experience in the park.
