Slingshot 2021 RAD Wakeboard Boots
Dual Zone Closure System
The laced lower zone combines with Slingshot's signature HHD system and is polished off with a new lower zone Gummy Strap. The second Gummy Strap on top allows riders to customize the fit around the ankle. All shapes and sizes are welcome, just please remember to clip those toenails from time to time!
HHD System/Heel Hold Down System
Slingshot's H.H.D. (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.
Interchangeable Gummy Straps (Secondary Colorway Included)
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 hook and loop, 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.
Forged Aluminum Track
Heavy boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot's new forged aluminum track is stronger and lighter than previous year's tracks. This means a lighter overall setup weight. You really can't be boots that are both lighter and stronger.
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 your 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.
Ultralight K9 Mounting System
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.
The RADs are Slingshot's most proven wake boots to date, and...while some might say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," Slingshot couldn’t resist putting the cherry on top of this already flawless design. For 2021 they've upgraded the closure system to include a lower zone Gummy Strap, complementing the existing laced lower zone with the integrated H.H.D. (Heel Hold Down) system. For those riders looking for the most secure fit possible for all disciplines of wakeboarding, the all-new RAD boots are ready to deliver.
