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.
