2020 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard

A wakestyle/freestyle/freeride crossover board, designed for maximum boost, load and pop and aggressive riding in all conditions. As the signature model for Slingshot team rider, innovator extraordinaire and English gentleman, Sam Light, the Refraction is designed to be the one board he can kick as with, no matter where his exploits take him. New for 2020, we added a 147cm size for larger/heavier riders or those who prefer more surface are beneath their feet.

Technical Features:

  1. Continuous Rocker - A smooth, consistent curve provides a fast ride, predictable pop, great carving performance and disperses water to soften landings.
  2. Inverted NACA Tech Channels - These Parabolic channels have been inverted to provide a cleaner and more efficient bottom profile. They improve water flow and board speed, grip, and pop, edging, general performance and feet yet are more forgiving in the case of rider error.
  3. Atomic Wood Core - Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength fo the wood's grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
  4. V-Spine Bottom - A subtle bottom contour helps break surface tension landings. This makes the hardest drops feel like walking on clouds.
  5. Slingshot Fusion Sidewalls - We've transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheel into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one sling shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
  6. Carbon Bedrock Inserts - Light, flexible and super strong, our inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex underfoot.
  7. Ballistic Base - Upgrade base material is harder and more durable, built to withstand the abuse of rocky beaches and abrasive sand.
  8. New Kite Fins & Grab Handle

2020 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard - At a Glance

This is the Same Light Pro model, the board has a clean belly with a lot of channeling at the tip and tail providing insane grip through turns and pop. This board is slightly stiffer and less rocker giving this board stability at speeds allowing it to go up wind with ease. This board has .7 ballistic base giving it the strongest base in the line up. This is the travel, beater, sender board that wants to do it all!
