The 2019 Cabrinha Hi-Rise Speed Kiteboarding Foil is a high-performance foil set that strikes a balance between outright race and freeride crossover. Featuring medium aspect wings with a smooth swept back concave design, the SPEED delivers its namesake faithfully while maintaining a level of stability and smooth carving that makes it more than just fast.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
The more you foil the more you'll enjoy the Hi-Rise Speed. As your skills increase, you may find yourself wanting to go faster. It's a thrill! If this sounds like you, but you don't want to go full race mode, the Hi-Rise Speed may be just the foil for you. This foil is fast without being so race oriented that you have to give up the ease, stability, and carve-ability of a more user-friendly kit. Giving you the best of both worlds is what make the Speed such an exceptional wing set. We love its speed-leaning versatility and its beautiful high-quality construction.

The 2018 Slingshot Hypermiler 4'8" is a high-performance, no holds barred, need for speed racing machine. Everything about the Hypermiler says fast, from it's all-carbon super-light construction to its racecar outline. Aggressively beveled edges reduce water contact when leaning out at maximum angles of attack, a textured lightweight deck for maximum grip and minimum weight, and footstrap inserts set to the three-strap race configuration. The Hypermiler is the board to get if you want to race, ride long distances, or just go Mach 10.
THE 2019 Slingshot Half Strap 2.0 is a great happy medium for foiling between the safety of going strapless and the locked in performance of a foot-stap.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
Foiling is one of the most fun disciplines of kiteboarding, but learning can be daunting. Those first sessions can be downright scary. Fear not though, because as you get the hang of it, it all becomes so much easier and less intimidating. One of the things that beginners struggle with is whether or not to use footstraps. We've found that the half strap gives new riders the best of both worlds. They allow you to have better control of the board, especially when it comes to board starts. The half strap lets you keep the board on its side and gives you better control when getting up without risking getting a foot stuck when you crash. We've found the half strap is a great tool for beginners as well as more experienced foilers and we use them for our lesson program and highly recommend them.
SLINGSHOT'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Slingshot Half Straps are exactly what the name suggests- they're half of a foot strap designed to provide leverage and a locked-in feel with the confidence of knowing you can kick free of your board when you crash. No more twisted ankles and sketchy crashes from getting stuck to your foil board.
Standard foot straps are a useful tool for foiling, and it can be easy to get your feet stuck and increase the risk of injury, particularly to the ankles. This is especially true during the early stages of foiling progression, when crashing at awkward angles is common. The Half Strap is the happy-medium. They provide leverage to get the board in position and keep it secure and they’re extremely easy to disengage from during a crash.
-Provides support and safety for your foiling
-Perfect learning tool for entry-level foilers
-Safer than straps, prevents ankle injuries
-Universal mount with variable stance and angle adjustments
-One size fits all, bootie compatible
PACKAGE INCLUDES: 2 Half Straps, All Mounting Hardware-
