Spruce "Slingshot" Skiboard New for 2019.20
The Spruce Slingshot is a new design for the 2019.20 season. It is a "V-shape" design with a wide tip with some rocker. It's designed to be very easy turning using just the upper body rotation of the rider to initiate the turn. The wide tip will pull the board into the next turn when the rider's weight is slightly forward, giving a more precise and aggressive turning feeling when it's wanted.
The design is the skiboard analog of the BBR ski that was marketed by Salomon a few years back.
The Slingshot has design features that make it a good fit for powder skiing. With the risers set back in the rear mounting position, the relatively narrow tail can be sunk in soft snow by leaning back. The wide rockered tip provides lift at the front of the board when it is in soft snow.
