SLINGSHOT ASYLUM 2014
The Slingshot Asylum is fast becoming a favorite board for our REAL Pros because it offers massive pop and heaps of control in a wide range of conditions.
What we like:
The rocker on the Asylum is magic! More and more riders are discovering that sacrificing a little upwind performance and choosing a board with more rocker is a solid option. The additional rocker and channeling makes the Asylum perform amazingly if you like to spend time in the air or upside down.
You can ride the Asylum with boots or straps and it works very well with both. One of the biggest surprises we found was the control you have doing unhooked tricks with straps on.
We tend to spend a lot of time riding in bindings so switching to straps always makes us feel less secure doing powered unhooked tricks but that's not the case with the Asylum. If you're into learning tricks, make sure you test out the Asylum!
