Slingshot Refraction Karolina Pro
The Karolina Pro delivers great pop and cushy landings. This is due to a progressive rocker profile, subtle V-spine and lively wood core construction. With a versatile rocker profile, it can hold its own in chop, swell,rough conditions and flat water freestyle. The tip and tail feature upturned edges designed to prevent catching an edge while pressing on rails, kicker and sliders. This makes the KP a great crossover board for the cable parks.
Slingshot team rider Karolina Winkowska is in a class of her own. Friendly but fiercely competitive, humble but incredibly talented, Karolina is a true ambassador for female athletes around the world. As a two-time world freestyle champion and 2016 Kite Park League champion. Karolina needs a board that can stand up to the high-performance demands and varying conditions of her epic kite lifestyle. The Karolina Pro is exactly that.
Although proven capable of winning world titles, you don’t have to be a competitive freestyle rider to love the Refraction. With moderate rocker (less than a dedicated freestyle board). The KP can be classified as an all-around board that excels in a variety of conditions. If you’re a motivated female kiter who rides hard and wants a bomber board that won’t hold you back, the Karolina Pro is for you.
Carbon Bedrock inserts:
One of many Slingshot innovations, carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible seen yet. These new inserts, introduced last year, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and far more consistent flex under foot.
A proper base thickness is an important detail in selecting the board that’s best for you. Slingshot offer something for everyone in the 2018 lineup. A thick layup will give more durability for kickers, sliders, rails and other hard objects. While a thinner layup means less overall weight.
All of Slingshot twin tip range are hand crafted out of all wood cores. They use sustainably grown Paulownia, which gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. The vertically laminated construction harnesses the collect strength of the wood’s grain. This provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
As an added layer of protection, we finish every board with a full urethane rail to protect from inevitable mishaps.
