SLINGWING CLASSIC V.1
Slingshots inflatable trailing edge and window for viewing really makes the Slingwing stand out from the rest!
NEW for 2020, the SlingWing is part windsurfing, part kiteboarding
and part flying, each broken down to their most basic form. When
you combine it with a foil, you get an entirely new sport that
simplifies the experience and gear you need to fly across the water
powered by the wind. If you’re new to windsports, the SlingWing is
easier, safer and more user-friendly than any of its predecessors,
and if you’re an experienced wind junkie, it’s a fun and simplistic
style of riding you’ll enjoy instantly.
The SlingWing is a light weight inflatable wing that has a rigid
frame when pumped up and can be packed in a small bag when
deflated. No harness, control bar, lines, mast, boom or battens
needed. It’s designed to be used with a foil or paddle board with
enough volume for the rider to stand on and can also be used with
snow sports or skating.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE SLINGWING
Using the wind to propel you across the water (or land) is an addicting sensation, and the Sling-
wing is yet another form to get your fix. You need decent board skills, but little to no sailing or
kiting experience to get the hang of it right out of the gate. Its unique appeal comes from how
simple it is and the freedom you feel using it. Just stand on your board, hold the wing at the prop-
er angle and off you go. To ease power, just sheet out or let go with your back hand and the wing
drifts with you like a paper airplane.
WHO IS IT FOR?
One of the greatest things about the SlingWing is how simple and safe it is to use. All
you really need are moderate board/foil skills and a basic awareness of the wind. It was
designed to be combined with foiling, and since the friction is so low, it takes very little
arm strength to use once you’re cruising. It works the same without a foil- on a paddle
board, skis/snowboard or skateboard- but may require more strength to use for extend-

1. Bombproof Slingshot Construction-
We have 20+ years building the most durable gear on the market. The SlingWing is built to
the same standards with many of the same innovations we use in our top-of-the-line kites.
2. Reflex Inflatable Trailing Edge Design-
The SlingWing’s unique design features an inflatable trailing edge that completes a rigid
frame around the entire wing (not just the leading edge like other designs). This makes a big
difference in performance, wind and load tolerance and gives it “pitch positive” flight. The
frame keeps it from flapping, fluttering and folding in the wind the way less robust designs
are prone to.
3. Power Grip Y Handle Layout-
Multiple grip points in a Y shape along the leading edge and center strut gives you the
freedom to position your hands in the ideal position no matter how you maneuver. This
unique design also gives you better leverage over the wing to manipulate its angle of attack
with greater precision and less strain.
4. Wide Boy Mono Strut-
The SlingWing’s center strut is large and in charge, and for good reason. The wide strut
profile allows the power grip handles more leverage over the center axis of the wing, which
translates to an easier and more efficient control in your hands.
5. Buddy Windows-
See-through panels along the center strut provide increased visibility when using the wing
out front instead of overhead.
6. Skate Scuff Tough Strips-
An attention to detail that will dramatically increase durability for anyone looking to use
the SlingWing as a crossover toy for skating or on the snow. Scuff strips are located on the
wingtips where they are vulnerable to damage from dragging on rough surfaces.
7. High Pressure Valves-
For maximum air pressure in the Reflex Trailing Edge.
8. 30 Piece Constant Curve Leading Edge-
Segmented leading edge sewn in multiple sections to create the perfect shape and taper
while maintaining stiffness throughout the wing.
9. One Pump-
The Original Single Point Inflation System gets you on and off the water faster.
10. Leading Edge Surf Handles-
Grippy grab handles are located strategically on the leading edge to give the rider more
options, more range of movement and more leverage over the wing to accommodate
different conditions and uses.
11. Split Strut-
Integration of the canopy and center strut for maximum structure
12. Wrist Safety Leash-
Better safe than sorry. The SlingWing comes with a wrist leash for safety that attaches to
the center of the leading edge.
13. SlingWing Back Pack-
Slingshot board sports. Since 1981 Tony Logosz and his brother Jeff have dedicated themselves to the performance and design of quality water sports equipment. Years of hard work and innovation, that is spawned from Tony’s ability to think in original ways, is what fuels them today. In 1999, after numerous innovations in windsurfing, wakeboarding and other major sports, both set forth to found Slingshot. Since then Slingshot has grown to be a global brand which caters to top kiteboarders and wakeboarders in the world. Slingshot today: achieving this level of success commits us to our core beliefs. People who ride Slingshot will always come first. Our commitment to quality, innovative design, testing and riding have been a driving force for an entire decade. Through this decade we have been awarded four U.S. patents that make kiteboarding more convenient and safer. We also proudly license patents, from other great innovators of our sport, to help establish high levels of quality and set industry standards. This contributes to the prosperity and growth of kiteboarding and wakeboarding.
