Its beginner to intermediate rocker profile and mellow single concave allows you to move naturally and comfortably on the water. The friendly outline is designed to keep you upwind and free from spray in the face. Just because the Crisis is easy to use, doesn't mean you need to be easy on it. Built on top of an Atomic Wood Core and rounded out with Slingshot's Single Shot Fusion Sidewall, the Crisis will be in your quiver for a long time to come.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE CRISIS
- If you are looking for a no-frills, time-tested, proven twin tip shape, the CRISIS is your go-to for all-session, all-condition versatility.
- A thinner core means the Crisis is one of the most flexible and most forgiving twin tips in Slingshot's range. This eases up chop and gives the rider one of the most comfortable rides you can find.
Continuous Rocker: A smooth, consistent curve provides a fast ride, predictable pop, great carving performance and disperses water to soften landings.
Atomic Wood Core: Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood's grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
Carbon Bedrock Inserts: Light, flexible and durable inserts that maintain the board's flex underfoot for a consistent feel from tip to tail.
Single Concave Hull: Provides smooth tracking and effortless upwind performance.
Singleshot Fusion Sidewall: Slingshot's transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. Their innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
Dura-Light Base: This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
All of Slingshot's twin tips are made with Sustainably Sourced Wood. Their wood providers are Forest Stewardship Council approved ensuring that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
