Slingshot Phantasm 657 Kite foil package – with PFH 657cm wing
Before we get started.
Slingshot has been developing the Phantasm line of high end carbon foils for years and years. The wait was well worth it.
At the AWSI board sports expo in Hood River in Sept of 2021, the Phantasm line-up was voted the #1 new product by one of the major kite and wing magazines. It was a well deserved recognition.
The goal was to produce the best mast (stiff, fast and strong) on the market and provide a highly modular system with the best wings available that cover all the foiling disciplines. They did their due diligence and nailed it. Well done Slingshot.
The PFF 657 wing is a favorite for riders who want to go faster than some of the other wings.
Here is what Slingshot has to say:
The Phantasm 657 is made from super light, stiff and efficient high-modulus carbon, with a very unique medium aspect front wing that gives it limitless speed, agility, maneuverability and carving performance. The Phantasm 657 will usher in a new realm of speed and performance while still providing great stability and tracking. The smaller span of the PFH 657 front wing and its Medium Aspect shape and design results in progressive speed and next level maneuverability. If you are looking for a modern blend of speed and precision-turning this foil will deliver space age performance. The PFH 657 wing’s unique inverted gull shape not only maintains the speed you want, but also delivers an unmatched progressive roll rate that delivers superior response and feel than flatter wings. This progressive roll rate means Jibing, Tacking, carving and any sort of transition will become your new metrics for fun. The Phantasm 657 will have you quite literally foiling circles around your friends. This ultimate performance foil from Slingshot will become the new benchmark for the top level balance of speed, stability, and playful maneuverability.
- 12K DUAL CARBON CORE MAST-High-performance stiffness built for high-performance riders. Built from premium unidirectional and 12k super high modulus pre-preg carbon. Inside is a dual carbon core that ensures next-level stiffness in major, minor, and biaxial directions. Running lengthwise between the dual core is a 10k Carbon I-beam that creates the third and final layer of rigidity and solidity.
