This 2019 Slingshot Foil has been used a few times. The sticker on the mast is peeling a bit, it will ship with wing covers.
The 2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FKite Foil, Slingshot's stock foil for kiting, has been reformulated with the H4, Space Skate, wing. Drawing on their experience with thousands of riders from the wildly popular foil academy, Slingshot has replaced the H5 with the much more stable and easy to ride H4 Space Skate. This move makes learning how to foil massively more accessible.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
When Slingshot reconfigured their FKite foil with the H4 wing for 2019, we were fully onboard. The fact is, surf wings are great for kiting, making the whole thing so much more accessible for the average rider. The H4, aka Space Skate, is the perfect pairing with a kite. It gets up on foil super early and holds its own even as the speeds pick up, and you'll be hard-pressed to find a more playful and carvable foil on the market. It loves to turn and pump and makes progressing and learning transitions as easy as it could be.
SLINGSHOT'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
We have taken all the input we have gotten from our foil academy (thousands of users) to build the most dynamic and playful all-around kite foil package on the market, period. This is Slingshot innovation at its finest, and it’s years ahead of the competition. Do your research ... you’ll see what we mean. The 2019 Hover Glide FKite package is equipped with the Space Skate 65 (H4) front wing and the Space Skate is the obvious evolution for the FKite package. This is one of the most versatile foils in our line. Its size and surface area provide the lift and stability needed for learning, progression, tricks and transitions. Its unique dihedral shape provides a crazy level of dynamic carving control and self-centering flight that you have to feel to believe.
All Hover Glide wings have been re-engineered for 2019 with a new carbon composite material. The magic feel of the Space Skate (H4) wing comes from its arched “batwing” shape that acts as a self-centering device as you ride. When you lean into a turn and let off, it wants to find level flight rather than continuing at the same angle and requiring rider input to correct. The result is a super playful and forgiving feel that lets you bounce from turn to turn like you’re carving down a fresh patch of pavement on a longboard - hence its name, the Space Skate.
