Description

The Spruce Slingshot is a new Spruce model for the 2019.20 season. It is a “V-shape” design with a wide rockered tip and a narrow tail. 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 that’s wanted.

The Slingshot has design features that also make it a good fit for powder skiing. The narrow tail naturally sinks in soft snow while the wide rockered tip provides lift at the front of the board.

    Slingshots are not the first Spruce skiboard to be asymmetrical in shape, but it is definitely the one where it is most noticeable – the tail is distinctly lower and the non-rockered. This yields a pleasant experience in soft snow as it slightly sinks at the back which pushes up the tips. On harder surfaces the narrower tail holds speed better in turns than a conventional twin-tip. At 119cm it is long enough to be forgiving on stance when landing small jumps – it is not a park board, but sometimes one just have to deal with unexpected level changes. It is very stable at higher speeds as well. Yet at is length it still feels like a skiboard and does not require the effort of Ospreys or Sherpas.

    it is very difficult to make a definitive choice between Crossbows and Slingshots. When it comes to downhill performance the Crossbows might have the edge on hardpack where as the Slingshots wins in softer snow. w.r.t effort.

    I’ve also experimented skitouring on Slingshots. The downhill experience is what I like, but my only criticism is that the narrow tail works against a person when climbing. It sinks to much in soft snow, requiring flatter approaches on hills with any extra kick turns.

    The Slingshots are well suited for skiers downscaling on length, that might feel that 110cm or less might be to short for them. Yet for those same people it will provide a playful ability that is not present in the longer offerings from Spruce.
