Description

The Glide focuses on efficient power through a lean and mean profile.

SLINGSHOT GLIDE 2014 TECH SPECS:

- Glide 160 x 40.64cm
- Includes 2" fins, handle & Bolt-On 5.0 bindings.

What we like:
The most impressive thing about the Glide is that it packs in the same light wind performance of other boards that are much wider and bigger. This means you really can look at light wind conditions and dream of doing rolls, jumps and tricks instead of just mowing the lawn. This is the best lightwind board in the chop because of the added rocker and narrower waist. We especially loved riding the new 150 which is a blast! The 150 will be a killer first board that you won’t grow out of because it works so well in the light stuff.
We really like the design, shape and quality of the Glide. These boards are made in America and you can tell by the quality and attention to detail in the craftsmanship.

What we don't like:
If your local spot never gets above 12mph and the average kite session is all about trying to work the kite and stay upwind then you should probably look for the biggest and widest board you can find. The Glide has fantastic light wind performance but the bigger and flatter lightwind boards out there will trump the Glide on the low end.

Why you want the 2014 Slingshot Glide:
Because it's a fun light wind board. Kiteboarding shouldn't be about jumps you can't do and fun you can't have. The Glide allows you to go out in light winds and handle the chop like a champ!

Customer Reviews

  1. Rides like my regular twin tip

    by Ashlon on March 12, 2014

    When things get lighter and you still want a lively board that will allow you to do more than just mow the lawn of your local spot, look towards the glide. With a relatively square outline the Glide bites very well and will have you ripping upwind with ease. If you are going out in light conditions but still want a board you can jump, throw tricks, and maneuver the Glide is a good choice. With a higher rocker line than most light wind boards the glide is harder to sink, handles chop better, and is more maneuverable than many of the other light wind offerings out there. The Glide does exactly what it is supposed to do; it rips upwind and will get you out on the light days.
    One possible drawback of the Glide is the rocker line. What makes this board maneuverable and easy to ride in chop also makes this board have its limits in light wind. If you are really pushing the limits of how little wind you can ride in, we would recommend going for the longest, widest, and flatest board you can find. But if you are looking to get out on some very light days, and still have a board that rides similar to your twin tip, go for the Glide!
