2017 Slingshot Ghost Whisper 111
“A class of it’s own.”
If a foil were the sum of its features, the Ghost Whisperer would be a masterpiece. The GW 111 is a true work of art from performance to its material science. Featuring an entirely different carbon construction than the rest of the ghost whisper family, this is a premium top of the line foil. An extended 111cm mast is designed for maximum leaning and carving without breaching the surface with longer and more slender wings. To achieve maximum efficacy in this added length the 111 features strategically placed High modulus carbon in key areas. This results in maximum stiffness in the mast and wings for the highest performance without sacrificing durability. This foil is designed for the kiter seeking the most bad ass foil set up in the industry providing the most performance out of any setup-namely, high speed, high energy and maximum upwind drive. Rounding out the foil’s premium composites is a flat weave carbon resulting in a unique appearance only exceeded by its performance.

When we released the all-carbon 2017 Ghost Whisper, we heard from experienced riders around the world that this, finally, was the foil they had been waiting for. Not only does it have the stiff, light and strong characteristics of high-end carbon construction, but the shape and feel are spot on. It’s fast, agile and aggressive, and unlike many “high-performance” foils, it’s also user-friendly for riders who aren’t lucky enough to kite more days of the year than they work.
The Ghost Whisper’s mast and mounting pedestal are one single piece, which eliminates a connection point and reduces potential vibration between separate components. The fuselage is made from sturdy aluminum, which allows for a strong, precision fit with the multiple wing sets in the Ghost Whisper’s modular system. The mast and fuselage attach with the industry gold standard key-lock connection.
