Slingshot Ghost Whisper NF2
Performance Carbon Foil
The Slingshot Ghost Whisper is the newest edition to Slingshot's rapidly expanding foil lineup. This sleek carbon foil is fine-tuned for all-conditions riding and aggressive freeride performance. As a testament to the commitment Slingshot has to developing the most comprehensive foil lineup in kiteboarding, the Ghost Whisper features a modular design and sturdy aluminum fuselage that allows riders to change wingsets to achieve dramatically different performance characteristics.
The Ghost Whisper's mast and mounting pedestal are one single piece, which eliminates a connection point and reduces potential vibration between separate components. The fuselage is made from sturdy aluminum, which allows for a strong, precision fit with the multiple wing sets in the Ghost Whisper's modular system. The mast and fuselage attach with the industry gold standard key-lock connection.
When we released the all-carbon 2017 Ghost Whisper, we heard from experienced riders around the world that this, finally, was the foil they had been waiting for. Not only does it have the stiff, light and strong characteristics of high-end carbon construction, but the shape and feel are spot on. It's fast, agile and aggressive, and unlike many "high-performance" foils, it's also user-friendly for riders who aren't lucky enough to kite more days of the year than they work. For 2018, we've expanded the Ghost Whisper platform to include three distinct foils with three distinct personalities- all with the same top-end Slingshot DNA.
- Stiff and light high-modulus carbon construction
- Man's other best friend
- Session saver, big air booster, long-distance cruiser, high-speed screamer
- The natural progression from aluminum to carbon construction
Front Wing: 545mm
Rear Wing: 328mm
|The lowest-aspect of the three Ghost Whisper foils, the GW91 is designed for playful freeride, stability, transition progression, learning to jump, riding in swell or waves and light wind. This will be the most user-friendly transition from an aluminum setup, like the Hover Glide, and it has the most lift and earliest takeoff of the three GW foils.
Front Wing: 576mm
Rear Wing: 342mm
|"The perfect balance between stability and high-speed performance," is how Slingshot team rider Fred Hope describes the GW101. Fred has access to just about any foil he wants, and this is the one he chooses more than any other. A medium aspect wingset makes this foil faster than the GW91 and more stable than the GW111, while a 101cm mast gives you more room to lean and carve upwind without breaking the surface. This is the best choice for experienced riders who want an aggressive all-around foil and are well beyond the learning curve of twitchy high-performance carbon foils.
Front Wing: 600mm
Rear Wing: 380mm
|"A class of it's own." If a foil were the sum of its features, the Ghost Whisperer would be a masterpiece. The GW 111 is a true work of art from performance to its material science. Featuring an entirely different carbon construction than the rest of the ghost whisper family, this is a premium top of the line foil. An extended 111cm mast is designed for maximum leaning and carving without breaching the surface with longer and more slender wings. To achieve maximum efficacy in this added length the 111 features strategically placed High modulus carbon in key areas. This results in maximum stiffness in the mast and wings for the highest performance without sacrificing durability. This foil is designed for the kiter seeking the most bad ass foil set up in the industry providing the most performance out of any setup-namely, high speed, high energy and maximum upwind drive. Rounding out the foil's premium composites is a flat weave carbon resulting in a unique appearance only exceeded by its performance.
