Product Description

2017_ASYLUM_CHART_RATINGS[1]

Asylum characteristics:

The 2017 Asylum delivers fast top-end speeds, aggressive edging and smooth load and pop, making this an ideal board for progressive and aggressive freestyle and freeriding . It features the most rocker of any board in our kiteboarding line. Its flex pattern and aggressive laser-cut channels are designed for speed, grip and superior hydrodynamics. The Asylum’s rocker and flex profile and durable base layup make it a great choice for riders who want a solid all-around freestyle board that can handle rough water and chop as well as the flatwater and the occasional kicker, rail or slider.

Asylum rider profile
You’ll love the Asylum if you’re an intermediate, advanced or aggressive entry-level kiter who likes to ride powered-up, boost big and charge hard in all conditions.

NEW Carbon bedrock inserts:

In 2017 you will notice lighter boards, a more continuous flex pattern and performance that is tuned precisely for each board’s design concept. You asked for weight reduction, better flex control and increased feel. You got it. Our engineers accomplished this by inventing new carbon-reinforced inserts, which will replace the Fastrack system on all 2017 boards. In testing, our team riders quickly noticed how solid the inserts are, hence the name Bedrock Carbon Inserts. The new inserts are a Slingshot exclusive and are designed to offer you a solid connection to a board that still needs to flex. They use the industry-standard M6 hardware and are reinforced with light-weight, high-strength carbon fiber. With this development, our engineers were able to define a new level of performance and durability in twin tip construction. The insert pull strength is increased by 30%, while the overall board weight is cut by 10%.

Base and rails:

Slingshot base thicknesses are as follows: Refraction- .7mm DuraGlide base; Asylum- .4mm standard base; Misfit- .2mm standard base; Karolina Pro- .2mm standard base. All Slingshot twin tips are lined with a full urethane rail, which provides dampening and protects the board form impact. For 2017, we’ve been able to achieve a broader, more vibrant range of colors for our urethane for even more visual appeal.

NACA tech laser channels:

Precision laser-cut NACA Tech channels allow Slingshot to fine-tune each board in its lineup for specific performance characteristics. Channels improve water flow and board speed, grip and pop, edging and general performance and feel

Slingshot wood core construction:

Every Slingshot kiteboard is hand built in the United States, in a small factory just down the road from company headquarters in Hood River. Boards are made from vertically laminated wood cores. This process utilizes the collective strength of the wood’s end grain and creates boards with unrivaled pop, rebound and flex characteristics. Nothing beats a wood core.
