Slingshot Tyrant EPX Kitesurf Directional Wave Board 2013
Board sizes: 5'8", 5'11", 6'1" Squash Tail Shape
The Tyrant is a true high performance short board that does it all. It has a deep single to double concave and a “pulled in” squash tail that makes the Tyrant sharp and more forgiving in all surf and wind conditions. For this years model Slingshot introduced a new insert layout for easier strap installation and our industry compatible high impact fin system that provides extra protection and lets you put more power in your wave riding. Ask anyone who’s been on the Tyrant, it’s the perfect balance of incredible high performance and long lasting durability.
EPX (EPS + FLUID X)
EPX is Slingshot’s new construction design that combines our latest laminated sandwich construction with our high end EPS foam core and our new Fluid X Vibration Dampening System. This combination creates a high performance board that is strong and easy to use. The EPX construction also features our new graphic technology that incorporates vivid colors making the board a true piece of art. The EPX construction is an ideal option for riders looking for a durable board with the latest technology to improve their riding.
FEATURING FLUID X - VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM.
Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all our high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and it’s visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything you’ve experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, we finally manage to give our boards a Polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
