2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FKite Foil
The 2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FKite foil is NEW and redesigned to offer an even more user friendly foil for learning and progressing.
We’ve seen a rather strong movement towards foils with more lift and easier to ride.
This makes it more fun for turning and learning new tricks.
When introduced a few years ago, Slingshot hit a grand slam home run with the Hoverglide, Dwarfcraft and Flight School Package.
This package allowed riders an easier way to learn utilizing the short mast program.
The 2019 Hoverglide FKite is using the new Space Skate foil (H4 – 2018).
GET YOUR WINGS
We have taken all the input we have gotten from our foil academy (thousands of users) to build the most dynamic and playful all-around kite foil package on the market, period. This is Slingshot innovation at its finest, and it’s years ahead of the competition. Do your research … you’ll see what we mean. The 2019 Hover Glide FKite package is equipped with the Space Skate (H4) front wing instead of the H5 wing of the prior two years. The H5 was (and is) a great all-around wing, and the H4 is the obvious evolution for the FKite package. This is one of the most versatile foils in our line. Its size and surface area provide the lift and stability needed for learning, progression, tricks and transitions. Its unique dihedral shape provides a crazy level of dynamic carving control and self-centering flight that you have to feel to believe.

All Hover Glide wings have been reengineered for 2019 with a new carbon composite material. The magic feel of the Space Skate (H4) wing comes from its arched “batwing” shape that acts as a self centering device as you ride. When you lean into a turn and let off, it wants to find level flight rather than continuing at the same angle and requiring rider input to correct. The result is a super playful and forgiving feel that lets you bounce from turn to turn like you’re carving down a fresh patch of pavement on a longboard – hence its name, the Space Skate.
