Slingshot is proud to introduce our first complete Hydro Foil package. Co-Founder and Head Slingshot Product Designer Tony Logosz has quietly been working with Nick Leason of Lift Foils for more than two years. According to Logosz, “The technology and knowledge that goes into building a quality hydrofoil does not come over night. Working with the best in the industry was a critical part of our long-term approach to developing foils. Nick could focus on design criteria while I could focus on general wide market appeal, composites and the overall final fit and finish. Our shared R&D effort has lead us to set the standard for quality and performance for those looking to get into foil boarding.” Think of it like this: Slingshot builds the computer and Lift builds the technology inside. The combination, simply put, is incomparable. The NF² is designed to perform well in all aspects of freeriding and appeal to anyone looking to get into foiling. It's user-friendly yet extremely efficient and high performance. This makes it the perfect crossover for flat water, ocean, and river sessions.
SLINGSHOT NF² hydrofoil is entirely designed for accuracy using the latest in CAD and CNC capabilities. Every detail is tested and optimized for maximum control and stability while increasing the potential for speed. We believe Carbon Fiber construction is critical in building quality foils. While most foils generally look the same, the reality is that subtle details make all the difference.
These details are not always discernible with the human eye but the differences can sure be felt on the water. The saying you get what you pay for has never been more relevant than when buying your first foil. Our process and construction uses the latest manufacturing technologies and carbon materials available. We have spared nothing in order to ensure that our foils have the proper strength, weight and deflection characteristics. The advantage of carbon combining the latest applied material sciences into the Slingshot foil are:
1. It offers neutral buoyancy which is key to making a true freeriding foil - it improves handling and makes water starting much easier when learning. More important is it allows you to progress to wakeskates and skateboard decks that do not have the volume to support a heavy foil.
2. The foil is manufactured using precise mechanics resulting in increased control, speed and upwind ability.
3. It's highly responsive which enhances the overall rider experience in all conditions.
THE NF² COMES WITH
PEDESTAL WITH SPAR
FRONT WING // REAR WING
ALIEN AIR FX BOARD
Carbon + Kevlar
Provides torsional and longitudinal stiffness, reduces vibration, thin profile, durable construction, Neutral buoyancy.
40.5” Strut Length
Full Freeride sweet spot, versatile riding styles, better carving, better edging. Reduces board drag while edging. Wings stay in the water with less rider effort.
4 Hole Pedestal Mount and Adjustable Strut Mount System
Adjustability, safe fast progressive learning method, flexible stance positioning. NF2 can be moved to thinner after market foil “skate” style boards.
Pro fit Components
No shimming, no gaps, between the foil fuselage and the foils. This means less drag, decreased turbulence and vibration.
Maximum rider control and comfort, strapped or strapless.
Multiple Strap Configurations
Versatile for all riding styles. Free ride strapless, surf style with 2 straps or hike out race style for maximum speed. Straps sold separately.
5.5” of scoop, stub nose flip tip. Provides confidence while doing touch and go’s reduces swing weight.
All parts are a system and are interchangeable - Foils can be installed on any Slingshot foil board.
