We’ve come a long way since Day 1, and so has the RAD. This boot is lighter, lower profile, higher performance and also far more flattering for calves. This boot is the flagship boot in our line, built for all styles of riding. With features like a Dual-Zone-Closure system, Direct-Connect Base System and elegant but bomber build, it’s highly likely that you get RAD session after session.
Package includes: RAD Boots, M6 Mounting Hardware, Secondary Colorway Gummy Straps
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 customize the fit around their ankles. All shapes and sizes are welcome, just please, clip those nails every few months.
HHD System / Heel Hold Down 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.
Interchangeable Gummy Straps (secondary coloreway 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 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.
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.
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.
Ultralight 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 customizable mounting options so you can set your stance exactly the way you want it.
