WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE RAD
With a decade of R&D, the RAD boot is everything you need and nothing you don’t. Built for cable and boat riders alike.
The RAD boot is our most proven wake boot to date, and while some might say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix
it,” we couldn’t resist putting the cherry on top of this already flawless design. For 2021 we’ve upgraded the closure system to include a lower zone Gummy Strap, complementing the existing laced lower zone with our 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 boot is ready to deliver.
1. Dual Zone Closure System: The laced lower zone combines with our Signature HHD system and is polished off with a NEW lower zone Gummy Strap, while the 2nd 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!
2. 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.
3. Interchangeable Gummy Straps (secondary colourway 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 colours so you can customize your style.
4. Forged Aluminum Track: Heavy boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s forged aluminium 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.
5. Direct-Connect Soles: Base plates are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s Direct-Connect Soles reduce the footprint of the boot and allow 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.
6. 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.
Package includes: RAD Boots, M6 Mounting Hardware, Secondary Colorway Gummy Straps
