Slingshot Says:

Vision is what drives innovation and it is the force behind the new 2014 Vision twin-tip. Inspired by the performance and versatility of the RPM kite, the Vision was created to bridge the gap between competitive and recreational riding. All the features on the Vision are carefully tuned to deliver a balanced ride for all ability levels and style. Starting with a completely new approach, we dialed in the Visions flex pattern to deliver outstanding pop and soft landings, regardless of whether you are riding boots or footstraps. The Visions outline and chined rails prevents spray by focusing
the water down and away from the rider. With the addition of laser cutting technology we were able to create the first ever bonzer channel configuration on a full wood-core board. Combined with a continuous rocker line that delivers smooth turns and landings while still providing maximum edge control and maneuverability, the 2014 Vision is built with the legendary Slingshot construction using only the highest-quality and greenest materials available.

Our Testers Say:

Awesome pop, pretty dry ride with no spray and very good upwind in the chop, Eric McAuliffe.

With tons of rocker it tracks and jumps well, but landings may be more challenging, Dray Murray.

Rides really smooth through the chop with decent pop, Jonathan Dixon.

Meet the 2014 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The 2014 Vision is built in the USA and features innovative bottom channels laser cut directly into the all wood core, continuous rocker, Slingshots Fastrack which offers riders a huge amount of stance width adjustment and plenty of options for setting duck. Testers praised the Vision for its smooth ride through La Ventanas chop and its stiffer flex for loading the board up for impressive pop on jumps. Overall, the Vision is a fun board that works equally well for freeriding and advanced wakestyle riding.

Our test boards were shipped with Slingshots Bolt-Ons straps and pad system. The straps slip through the pad base for a simple and easy installation with a single Velcro strap for adjustment. Testers found the medium density pads comfortable while delivering a solid balance between control and plushness. Testers found the straps easy to adjust but our female testers commented that they wished the straps would adjust smaller for petite feet.
