CONVERTER XR V5 5’0″ Slingshot Kite Foil Board
FOIL / SURF / VERSATILITY
The Converter XR V5 is a versatile all-in-one foil and kitesurfing board built to shred with or without a foil. Based on our popular Sci-Fly XR model, this lightweight convertible foil board offers both versatility and performance.
Built with the shape and construction of our popular Sci-Fly XR surfboard, the Converter XR V5 carries on the same high-performance characteristics. The flatter rocker and parallel rail outline deliver top-of-the-line efficiencies both on and off foil. This allows riders to hold down a better edge without a foil and also gives you the speed you need to get on foil. The winged-diamond tail shape provides added grip and pop for strapless freestyle tricks and it also provides added leverage when pushing off the water to get yourself on foil. The Converter XR V5 features our XR construction, which gives the rider the feel and performance of a traditional surfboard in a lightweight package.
WHY WE MADE IT

PERFORMANCE SHAPE AND OUTLINE
Using the same shape and outline as the Sci-Fly XR, the Converter XR V5 ushers in better strapless freestyle and foiling performance. This shape and outline sacrifices nothing when riding with or without a foil.
WINGED DIAMOND TAIL
Provides pivotal turning and added pop for freestyle tricks. It also delivers added leverage when pushing onto foil.
THRUSTER FIN CONFIGURATION
This three-fin setup is stable, maneuverable, and versatile. It holds solidly in powered-up action and on steep, critical sections of waves.
3K CARBON RAIL SAVERS
Carbon rails along the tail help prevent cracking, heel dents, and damage from hard landings or rough touch downs.
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON STRINGER
Lengthwise carbon stringers—top and bottom—provide strength and stiffness.
ADJUSTABLE FOIL TRACK MOUNT
The adjustable mount allows you to slide your foil forward and aft on your board to fine tune how it feels and performs based on your size, ability, and personal preference.
MULTIPLE FOOTSTRAP INSERT POSITIONS
Choose your configuration: ride with three straps, two straps, one strap, no straps or our Half Straps.
Super soft EVA features a corduroy texture that provides tons of grip (and is as pleasing to your feet as it is to the eye).
