The Asylum returns to Slingshot’s 2016 lineup as our weapon of choice for powered-up freestyle riders looking to push themselves – and their gear – to the next level. With an aggressive rocker, wide profile and flexible wood core, the Asylum delivers massive pop and outstanding flex and rebound performance. Precision laser-cut channels improve performance and tracking, with or without fins, and help channel water away from the rider, thus increasing board speed and reducing face splash. With Slingshot’s top-end materials and bombproof construction, the Asylum is an excellent selection for riders looking for a board they can use both as an all-around freestyle ripper and a rail, slider and kicker crossover.
Like all of Slingshot’s twin tip boards, the Asylum is built proudly in the United States with high-quality materials sourced from the Pacific Northwest. Construction includes an all-wood Atomic Core that provides the best flex, performance and durability out of any core material on the market. Slingshot’s exclusive Fastrack mounting system is integrated into the core of the board and gives riders ultimate control when mounting footstraps or boots.
Package includes board, standard 2″ fins, grab handle and Fastrack mounting hardware.
40/60 – Super impact resistant sidewalls built to withstand the hardest riding. The 60/40 rails are stiffer with a boxier edge to create more surface for thrashing, plus variable contoured sidecut shaping for firm grip and clean release off the water.
Fast Track – Our proven, proprietary mounting system offers limitless micro adjustment stance options and a superior rider to board connection with a clean, fresh look. Includes universal mounting hardware.
Precision Laser-cut Channels – As a result of our laser cutting machine (seriously a FREAKIN’ LASER), all of our boards feature a cleaner, more precision construction. These rails help for cleaner takeoffs, smoother landings, better response and added stability.
Singleshot Fusion Sidewall – We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the boards core in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
