Slingshot Misfit

Slingshot Misfit        Best mounting System
STYLE:   Freestyle     
SIZE:    136 x 40.5      
FINS:     5 cm G10

The Misfit has been the go-to freestyle board of the Slingshot lineup for many years and the 2011 version steps it up a level in performance, finish and overall appeal., There are lots of new things on this board including a new outline, some nice twin channeling on the bottom sheet and a track system for mounting straps and boots. The result is a Misfit that edges harder and smoother and lets you be more aggressive than ever before. The Misfit keeps in control and smooths out chop nicely with no face splashing. The wide tips and stiffer flex give the board access to good pop for wakestyle or high-powered freestyle. Designed with input from PKRA riders, the Misfit delivers top competition-style performance in varied conditions. The fast-track system lets you get as aggressively wide or narrowed out as you want and it seems to improve on the dynamic flex of the board. With good all-around riding capability that’s packed with technology, the Misfit remains a top contender for a high performance freestyle board that’s more forgiving in chop than many top pro models. This is a board that aggressive intermediates can advance quickly into higher levels of riding.

Footbed and Strap System
The new Bolt-Ons pad and strap system feature a simple lace-up adjustable strap that’s easy to cinch down for a snug fit. There are lots of options for stance angle and the plates bolt on the board with no fuss and stance can be adjusted quickly with the new track system. It takes a few sessions and adjusting to get the beds and straps worked in so that they are comfortable and tight. The footbed is well cushioned in the heel, and the toe ridges provide some nice extra grip.
