The Valley is a new female-specific park board designed for riders looking to take their rail riding skills to the next level. The extra soft flex pattern allows for big presses and helps riders experience the true feeling of locking in and holding a press. The flex also brings new excitement to the simple moves like carves and sprays. The Valley’s wide profile and fast continuous rocker line allow the rider to cruise effortlessly through the park and put all their focus on mastering each and every obstacle. The Valley features the gorgeous signature artwork of Ms. Kim Kirch, the most influential artist in women’s wakeboarding.
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.
Slingshot has completely revamped its mounting systems 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 12 unique and symmetrical stance widths ranging from 19.5-25.25 inches (on center).
