Slingshot RAD 2019 Wakeboard Boots
The RAD has been a fan favorite on our lineup since day-one. Featuring a two-zone closure system with a synch-tight interior and one upper strap, the RAD provides the perfect balance between high comfort and high performance. For 2018 we’ve upgraded the whole look of the boot. Legacy features include our Gummy Strap closure system, improved interior padding and HHD (heel hold down) technology and our lighter K9 mounting hardware. Whether you’re cruising the lake with the family, boosting big airs, working laps at the cable park or winching with your buddies, the RAD is boot for all styles of riding and all conditions.

GUMMY STRAPS WITH INTERCHANGEABLE STRAP COLORS
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 Poly Urethane (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 colors so you can customize your style.
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.
NEW FORGED ALUMINUM TRACK
Heavy Boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s new forged aluminum track is stronger and lighter than our tracks in previous years. This means a lighter overall setup weight. Lighter & stronger? You really can’t beat that.
ULTRALIGHT K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM
Continued for 2019, Slingshot’s K9 mounting system provides a solid connection to your board, eliminates heel/toe lift and provides fully customizable mounting options so you can set your stance exactly the way you want it.
