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.
RAD RIDER PROFILE
You’ll love the RAD Boots if you’re cruising the lake with the family, boosting big airs, or working laps at the cable park, the RAD boot is for all styles of riding and all conditions with pull-tight laces on bottom and a strap closure up top.
All of our boots are RAD, this one just happens to be the original, so it boasts the name as well. The feeling of strapping up is like putting on a pair of fresh socks for the first time and getting that “ooh ahh” feeling. The RAD features a lower lacing system that ties into our signature HHD Heel support harness for riders who prefer a completely locked-down feeling. Built on our new K9 mounting platform the boot to board contact is stronger than ever before eliminating delays in communication between your feet and the board. The Riders overall “feel” is also maximized thanks to the bottomless base system. We consider the RAD’s to be the “Jordans” of our product line – and we’re certain that if he were to try wakeboarding, the RAD would be his boot of choice.

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 synch 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.
K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM
Continued for 2018, 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. A mounting rode is bolted onto the sole of the boot and connects by a rugged clamp, making this the most robust mounting system we’ve ever had.

DIRECT CONNECT SOLES
Baseplates 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.
