Slingshot (issue # 11 Sept/Oct '04)
Designed by Slingshot shaper John Doyle, the new Jarvis and Drake boards are part of the FUSE line: forgiving, user-friendly, stable and easy. The boards combine the durability and performance of the free-ride SX series with John's new Flexride construction for a forgiving, stable ride. Also new from the Gorge is the Diesel kite. Sitting behind the Fuel in its aspect ratio, the Diesel will help cruising kiteboarders progress to freestyle riding. Blessed with the same Split-Strut and One-Pump technology found on the Fuel, the Diesel has Auto-Pilot, which Slingshot describe as 'power steering', and 'the selftrimming flight control system'. One of the main benefits of the system is the all-terrain launch assist, making it a great cross-over kite from water, to land, to snow.
