The MOD3 canopy makes a significant impact on the wing's performance, enhancing its grunt, low-end power, and direct response due to its low stretch characteristics. The higher modulus fabric and construction details ensure that the Slick’s shape and profile remain, even in strong gusts, resulting in rapid acceleration without the need for hand placement or riding position adjustments. Furthermore, the MOD3 canopy improves the wing's longevity and durability.
The deeper profile enhances the lift and makes for a smoother power delivery and provides a forgiving ride feel making it easy and intuitive for riders with varying experience and different wind conditions.
This feature enhances the learning curve for beginners, enabling them to master the basics quickly. Additionally, the constant and predictable pull makes it easier to execute freestyle tricks and rotational jumps with ease.
The Slick's refined strut flex and wing tip angles ensure consistent power delivery and a smooth and consistent ride through gusts.
Two well-placed windows on each side of the wing provide good visibility, so you never have a blind spot, without compromising the wing's lightweight feel.
With three Mini Boom options, from the Aluminum Silver, to the Platinum and Platinum SLS in Carbon, there’s an ideal option for every rider. The Slick Mini Boom is also backwards-compatible with our previous generation of Slick Wings.
The 2023 Slick flags out and steers exceptionally effortless when held by the refined front handle and remains neutral and balanced in the surf or when going downwind.
That being said - the Slicks infinite options in hand placement make it the ideal choice for both Freestylers and Freeriders alike. It offers unrivaled benefits and rapid progression for those learning maneuvers and tricks.
• More power
• More direct response
• Better pumping efficiency > goes earlier
• Better draft stability
• Increased durability > no wearing out
• harder to break
MOD3 TECHNICAL INFO
• Modulus of MOD3 is twice as high in warp direction
• 3x as stretch resistant in bias direction (7x less stretchy at lower loads)
• Much higher shape holding ability compared to traditional (Kite) canopy (the canopy of Wings is exposed to about 2x the load per surface area compared to the canopy in Kites)
