Slingshot Rally 2016 11mt

Postby tmbt » Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:24 am

Hi guys,
i just bought a new 2016 rally 11mt and i would like some advices for you!

On the LE there are three positions for the back lines : Wave is the more distant from the end of the LE, the middle position and the nearest to the end of the LE is Freestyle.
I'm just a beginner doing freeride trying to improve board edge control and body position while riding. So the question are:
1) Does it make a difference for me which back lines setting i use ?
2) If it does .. which setting is better for me ?

Thanks
Mattia

Had 2016 and 2017 Rallys. The middle setting will work best for you.

Don’t know much about Rally’s but that sounds backwards to me. Nearest the tip is fastest turning, least bar pressure. Not what you want for freestyle. Furthest from tip is slower turning, more bar pressure. Not what you want for waves. Am I missing something or are the Rallys magically different?
