Slingshot Phantasm Carbon foil launch - 2020

Postby toyletbowl » Tue Dec 31, 2019 11:32 pm

Slingshot Phantasm 2020 Carbon Foil product launch.

I'm starting this thread now so we can update info regarding the launch of the biggest carbon fiber product line up yet.

Here is what I know so far.

Slingshot will have info ready for the dealers (us) in the next month or so. Can't wait.

Product is planned to be launched in the Spring of 2020.

Last I heard they are making some changes and additions to enhance product compatibility. That last statement is a little vague on purpose.

I've worked as a partner in manufacturing and understand delays.

Slingshot is going to great lengths to meet the timelines, and hopefully it will all happen accordingly.

The anticipation is killing me.

KGB.....Actually no.

Tony from Slingshot actually designed some inline Moses wings.

Onda for example.

All Phantasm will be Slingshot original designs. No more outsourcing and they are able to set their own vision.

We all win.

Good stuff either way.

A carbon fuselage alone would lighten the Hoverglide system dramatically. Not sure why they haven’t already made it as Liquid Force has for years. I can imagine it would be hard to produce a full carbon set to replace Moses

They didn't need to produce the a carbon Hoverglide as they had the GW series. Maybe now that they are coming with a new line will see a carbon version of the Hoverglide.
