Slingshot Versa Fin System

Slingshot Versa Fin System


The new Versa Fin System is designed by Slingshot to add extra versatility to modern kiteboards. As the guys at Slingshot say, this fin system makes the boards more fun, no matter the day's conditions or preferred riding style.
This fin system is built especially for directional boards and it was introduced by Slingshot via the 2014 T-Rex kite board which is equipped with a five-fin setup (3 x 3 5/8'' tri plus 2x 4 5/8'' asymmetrical sides). It can be set up as thruster, five’r and quad and each setup offers a different feel.

The thruster fin setup makes the board snappier and is perfect for steep conditions, the five’r works great when driving down the line and improves stability and the quad is optimized for mushy conditions and makes the board faster.

A quick word from Slingshot about their new fin setup: “Be it small mushy days when speed is vital, or steep overhead when there's room to play- a versatile board puts the rider in control. We have done the hard-work making boards that can be loose and playful or hard-charging and drivey. Now it's just up to you to figure out how you want to go rip.”

It is surely an all in one package. The quad and thruster setups work very well, but there's no major change compared to using other fin systems. The quad gives you a solid, faster drive, the thruster makes the board snappier in more serious surf...more
