The Design Difference

High Tension / High Performance / Light

The engine that drives the new SlingWing NXT is our new lightweight Aluula Air Frame which can be adjusted in stiffness through leading edge air pressure. 8 PSI produces a soft suspension-like ride, which takes the edge off in strong or gusty winds. Pump it to 11 PSI, and the wing feels like a sports car with performance shocks and tires to produce a sharp and precise feel. Strut pressure is always 10 PSI, and it produces our best new high-tension, high-performance canopy design to date. Advancements in new materials, leading-edge design, and our high-tension canopy profile make the SlingWing NXT balanced and easier to fly with super soft hand pressure. The NXT excels across all performance metrics no matter how or where you choose to use it. Exclusive to Slingshot, the SlingWing NXT features the new SlingGrip EVA with a ClickConnect handle system. The elevated pistol grip front handle delivers greater control when luffing or switching hands. These handles come on and off with a click, which makes packing for travel more compact.

Aluula NXT Airframe Design

A strategically calculated Reduced Diameter LE from the center of the LE wing to the wing tips, the Aluula Airframe delivers our new revolutionary high-tension, high performance canopy wing design. Offering superior balance and handing with best-in-class flex characteristics. Stiff in the front and transitioning to softer at the wing tips, the Aluula Airframe keeps the first third of the canopy structure smooth and rigid for on-demand power. It allows the wing tips to twist off in gusty conditions or flag out and surf with total control.

Aluula Material

Utilized throughout the SlingWing NXT’s airframe, the Aluula material is a high-tenacity, high molecular laminate that features biaxial gridding and extensive emulsion coating, eliminating stretch in all directions. Aluula is the secret behind a lighter wing with all the attributes of the SlingWing NXT, a more balanced feel, better power control, stability, and effortless flagging out for surfing.

Radial Panel Canopy Construction

We moved panels to match the loading of the canopy while in flight. This was possible because of the stiffness the LE produces to help create the high-tension, high performance canopy. These reinforced seams and a strategic alignment in the canopy prevent stretch.

Aluula Versastrut

With its hybrid canted strut design. VersaStrut works in conjunction with Radial Panel Canopy Construction to control our high-tension canopy profile. It allows less in-fill wall connection in the mid-section and a direct strut-to-canopy connection toward the trailing edge. The canted forward section of the strut moves the wing further from the rider, which creates significant dampening and takes any slack out of rider input. Connecting the strut directly to the rear of the canopy yields a more direct and rapid response when pumping and distributes load more uniformly into the canopy.

SlingGrip Handles

The reduced diameter, ergonomically optimized pentagonal circumference of the SlingGrip handles provides all-day comfort and better roll control by matching the exact shape of your grip, plus we added a little extra side wall for fingers to torque against when needed with its 27-millimeter diameter and dual-patterned EVA. A pistol grip front handle allows riders to confidently luff the wing and ride swell without needing to move their hand to the leading-edge webbing handle while still retaining the ability to regulate power and keep the trailing edge up.

ClickConnect

The easiest and quickest handle connection available on any wing, the ClickConnect requires no tools to mount your handles. Simply slide the handle into the connection point on the strut until it clicks. Nothing to hurt you or your board. Superiorly engineered, the ClickConnect mounts are sewn around the strut to distribute load and avoid pinch points.
