Mid 2017, Mako Boardsports approached Polar for help with the carbon elements of their Slingshot Jetboard. Within weeks, Polar had assisted with the design for manufacture and produced tooling capable of processing 20 units per week.
The main body of the board, internal engine compartment, bulkheads and lid were all hand laminated, trimmed and bonded by Polar prior to being shipped to Mako for final assembly and installation of the engines.
Incredibly cool and brilliant to see in action, the Mako Slingshot was a fantastic project to be involved with. The customer relationship is ongoing, so we’ll have to wait and see what lies in store next!
