SLINGSHOT RAD WAKEBOARD BOOTS 2020
THE REMASTERED LEGEND
The 2020 Slingshot wake boots are back and even better than ever before. Lighter, stronger and stunning design have put the Slingshot wake boot range at the top of the list for any cable, boat or kitesurfing rider.
Heres what the guys at Slingshot say.
Built for cable and boat riders alike, the RAD is our legacy all-around boot that provides the happy-medium of fit, flex and performance that versatile riders are looking for. We’ve come a long way since Day 1, and so has the RAD. Over the years this boot has become lighter, lower profile, higher performance and also far more flattering for calves. This is the flagship boot in our line, built for all styles of riding. With features like a Dual-Zone-Closure system, Direct Base System and elegant but bomber build, it’s highly likely that you get RAD session after session.
Why you'll love the Space Mob.
The RAD is a low profile, high performance, no BS boot for riders who value comfort, performance and versatility across all aspects of riding.
Gummy straps with interchangeable colours: Finally, a simple and effective solution to a problem that has afflicted wakeboarding boots since the very beginning. Slingshot’s “Gummy Straps” are a revolutionary closure system that utilizes super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) to cinch your boots tight. No more loosening over time, no more Velcro, no more cumbersome closure systems: Gummy Straps stretch when you fasten them, then squeeze your boots tight as you ride. Gummy Straps are easily interchangeable and each boot comes with two sets of colours so you can customise your style.
K9 mounting system: Continued for 2020, Slingshot’s K9 mounting system provides a solid connection to your board, eliminates heel/toe lift and provides fully customisable mounting options so you can set your stance exactly the way you want it.
Forged aluminium mounting rack: Heavy Boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s forged aluminum mounting rack is incredibly strong and lightweight. This means a lighter overall setup. Lighter & stronger? You really can’t beat that
Dual zone closure system: A laced Lower section combines with our Signature HHD system to secure the bottom half of the boot, while the gummy strap on top allows riders to customise the fit around their ankles. All shapes and sizes are welcome, just please, clip those nails every few months. ; )
HDD system: Slingshot’s HHD (Heel Hold Down System) integrates with the lower lacing zone, engulfing the heel with support from all angles as the lower zone is pulled tight, increasing comfort and providing a more secure fit.
Direct Connect Soles: Base plates are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s direct-connect soles reduce the footprint of the boot and allows the board to flex more efficiently underfoot. With a direct connection to the deck, the reaction time of the board is immediate when you engage on your toes or heels to set an edge. This increases rider feel and control and improves the overall connection to your board.
