We designed the all-new Slingwing V3 to give you significantly more power per size. Using a smaller wing in the same wind provides the advantages of higher speed and increased control with less weight and drag.
The larger strut and leading-edge diameter provide a completely rigid frame for big airs with tons of hang time. A tight canopy cancels oscillation and flutter to increases luffing performance. The V3’s new elongated handle system allows riders to perfectly place their grip for maximum responsiveness.
The One Pump Speed System makes inflation quick and simple, while the added dump valve on the strut makes deflation and packing a breeze. The profile entry batten provides smooth aerodynamic shaping where the inflatable leading edge transitions to the wing canopy for efficient air flow across the wing.
Light and tough 4x4 Canopy Tech material, combined with our Skate Scuff tough strips on the wingtips and leading edge, provide increased durability for wherever you ride, land or sea. Like its predecessor, the V3 features harness-line attachment pigtails that allow you to use a harness for higher speeds, better tack angles and longer sessions.
1. New Elongated Handles - Slide to perfectly place your grip without releasing a hand.
2. Leading-edge Luff Handle - Soft neoprene underlining lets you enjoy hours of gliding, free from knuckle rub.
3. One Pump Speed System and Strut Dump Valve - Inflate and deflate quickly and efficiently.
4. Harness Line Attachment Pigtails - Quickly connect or disconnect your harness line for higher speed, better tack angles, and less muscle fatigue.
5. Increased Leading Edge and Strut Diameter - Provides a stiffer and more powerful ride.
6. Bombproof Construction - Skate Scuff tough strips in abrasion areas and top-quality construction throughout means you can ride on water, ice, pavement or snow—your wing can take it.

In a category all its own the Slingshot Dart sets a new standard in wings. Finally, a hard charging speed machine capable of rocket airs and unlimited hang time. Pushthe Dart and the Dart pushes right back. Designed to escape the monotony of low power wings meant for cruising swell, The Dart is an animal all its own. Speed records will be set, hang time will be counted. If you are done drifting down swell and want to take your wing straight to the stratosphere, pushing boundaries in every dimension...grab a Dart and set your target.
WHY WE MADE IT: Winging is entering a new phase of radical maneuvers and our team riders were ready to escape the monotony of wings made primarily for drifting. The Dart was designed specifically for, HIGH SPEED, HUGE JUMPS, and BACKFLIPS.
The Dart’s Delta shape provide riders lightning-fast acceleration and the ability to penetrate into the wind to meet any swell, anywhere, with full power. The massive hangtime and loft our team demanded when jumping this wing is a result of the differential pressure rolling over the huge LE and into the extended dihedral canopy. We also wanted a wing with a shorter wingspan to help-out or shorter riders and allow the wingtips to clear the water in next level spins and flips.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: You are a winger that has put in your hours and are ready to take it to the next level of tricks and riding.
Harness line attachment points: You might need to hook in to bring that heart rate down
Soft Neoprene under LE Handle: Prevents knuckle rub while luffing
Handles free from rough seams: For a smooth long ride
Do you want the thrill of being powered by the wind over water, land or snow? You have decent board skills, but maybe little to no sailing or kiting experience? No problem! You will get the hang of winging right out of the gate.
The SlingWing's unique appeal comes from how simple it is to use and the freedom you feel using it. Just stand on your board, hold the wing at the proper angle and off you go.
To ease power, just sheet out or let go with your back hand and the wing drifts with you like a paper airplane.
Leading Edge Handle -Control the wing with one hand while luffing and riding swell, the soft material under the handle ensures your knuckles won’t scuff.
Transfer Handle -It’s Cross-Strut configuration makes use of the simple ergonomic orientation for smooth transfers between luffing and powered riding.
Y-Handle Tensioners - Provides increased upwind angles and more powered jumping, while also functioning to keep the wingtips pulled in and the wing full of power under intense wind pressure.
4 x 4 Canopy Material - Light and stiff with proven rip stop capability.
Harness Line Attachment Pigtails - Quick connect / disconnect of your harness line.

Walk Around the New SlingWing V2
2020 SlingWing Classic
The SlingWing Classic V1 is part windsurfing, part kiteboarding and part flying, each broken down to their most basic form. When you combine it with a foil, you get an entirely new sport that simplifies the experience and gear you need to fly across the water powered by the wind. If you’re new to windsports, the SlingWing is easier, safer and more user-friendly than any of its predecessors, and if you’re an experienced wind junkie, it’s a fun and simplistic style of riding you’ll enjoy instantly.
The SlingWing is a light weight inflatable wing that has a rigid frame when pumped up and can be packed in a small bag when deflated. No harness, control bar, lines, mast, boom or battens needed. It’s designed to be used with a foil or paddle board with enough volume for the rider to stand on and can also be used with snow sports or skating.
WHY YOU"LL LOVE THE SLINGWING Using the wind to propel you across the water (or land) is an addicting sensation, and the SlingWing is yet another form to get your fix. You need decent board skills, but little to no sailing or kiting experience to get the hang of it right out of the gate. Its unique appeal comes from how simple it is and the freedom you feel using it. Just stand on your board, hold the wing at the proper angle and off you go. To ease power, just sheet out or let go with your back hand and the wing drifts with you like a paper airplane.
WHO IS IT FOR? One of the greatest things about the SlingWing is how simple and safe it is to use. All you really need are moderate board/foil skills and a basic awareness of the wind. It was designed to be combined with foiling, and since the friction is so low, it takes very little arm strength to use once you’re cruising. It works the same without a foil- on a paddleboard, skis, snowboard or skateboard- but may require more strength to use for extended periods.
