SLINGSHOT HOVER GLIDE W/ APOLLO 60 

The Apollo 60 centimetre wing is one of the exciting new wings that have been added to the Slingshot’s Hover Glide Foil series for 2020. Based on the same wing shape as Slingshot’s, all carbon, Ghost Whisperer 633 wing, the Apollo blends efficient lift and slow speed carving with higher levels of speed than most surf oriented foils. Designed as an evolution of the Infinity Surf series of wings, the Apollo is slimmed and sized down, for the kite foilier that wants a bit more speed and control with more loaded kite power and drive. At the same time the Apollo has very early lift and can foil in very light winds. It only loses out to the larger surf wings in sub-10 mile per hour winds for early planing power. The performance of the Apollo 60 centimetre is ideal for both learning the basics but is a shape that has the speed and performance that you will never grow tired of. In fact, this wing is as fast as many of the early generation freeride kite foils that have much less surface area and lift and lacked the stability at slower speeds for learning transitions and carving waves. Test team riders were impressed by the smooth carving and comfortable quickness of the Apollo. It is very stable with quick and smooth acceleration. The Apollo drives comfortably with good amounts of front foot pressure during take off or when driving hard. The Hover Glide series is completely modular and comes on the same reliable platform as previous years. So any rider that got into foiling three years ago when the options were limited, can upgrade to any of Slingshot’s highly evolved wings. The Apollo’s easy crusing and stable riding nature, combined with the quick acceleration and good top end speed, make it a top choice for intermediate riders looking to push their skills to the next level.
