KTV RIDER PROFILE
You’ll love the KTV Boots if you want a setup with quick and easy entry/exit, a little more flex than the Shredtown for tweaking out those grabs and no laces to deal with.
The KTV is the perfect blend between the RAD and Shredtown. The name comes from the term “Karaoke TV” which is really big in China where, once upon a time, one of our boot designers had the night of his life. So we decided to name the boot after his experience. The boot features fixed liners with three zones of Gummy Strap closure to keep things simple yet supportive. They are certainly the fastest boots to get in and out of so you can slide right on past all the lace tanglers on the dock and grab the next open carrier before they even have the chance to look up. The KTV also offers the most flex, so if you prefer a softer more agile boot the KTV will be the most manoeuvrable in the line.

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.
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.
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.
