ABOUT THE BOARD:
The Solo is a completely new crossover board designed by pro rider Dylan Miller and legendary Slingshot shaper Tony Logosz. Never before has Slingshot been able to incorporate so many unique performance features into one board. The Solo is the first of a whole new breed from Slingshot. It is a board that appeals to every riding environment. New tapered Flex Tip Technology creates an entirely new sensation for riding rails by allowing the rider to lock into presses without having to fight the rigidity of the board. Subtle channels located between the feet help to increase traction and stiffen the belly, giving the Solo more immediate pop off the wake...and the center V-Spine helps break up water tension for big landings, both behind the boat and in the park. The Solo also has a noticeably narrower outline, giving it more of a snowboard-like feel.
ABOUT THE BINDINGS:
Packed full of new features, the 2017 Shredtown is a top-of-the-line boot designed for hard-charging riders who want a boot they can use with confidence in all aspects of the sport. A removable, cinch-tight liner slips in and out easily and features a fashionable print and a hard sole bottom for walking around parks, parking lots, weeds, rocks, and night clubs. The liner has been redesigned for 2017 for easier entry and exit with the boot and is loaded with super soft padding that gives an ergonomic fit and extra cushioning for those hard landings. The outer closure system features three Gummy Straps, one upper and two lower, for an ultra-secure and tight, yet flexible feel. The bindings come with two sets of colored Gummy Straps for added customization.
ABOUT THE ROPE/HANDLE COMBO:
The Ambush Apex rope and handle combo features a round 29 mm stitched Ultrasuede handle with quilted EVA padding, 12" PVC-dipped molded end caps that are lightweight and reduce handle roll, a 4 mm lightweight no-stretch Dyneema leader line, PVC leader tubing to resist abrasion, a 15" T6-6061 light aluminum bar with built-in floats and a 65' 5-section Dyneema mainline (45'-5'-5'- 5' + 5' handle).
