The Rad boot is back again for another season bringing comfort and performance to a whole new level in wakeboard and kiteboard. Possibly one of the most recognised boots on the market for their un matchable comfort and support, the RAD has a new look for 2018 after being upgraded last year to feature Slingshots new Gummy closure strap offering dual closure styles for optimum fit. Having moved away from velcro which creates wear over time, the new Thermoplastic poly urethane (TPU) Gummy Strap are easily interchangeable and squeeze your boots tight while you ride. With a new and improved interior padding and a specialised Heel Hold Down technology these boots will keep you locked in nice and firm giving you direct control over your board without any discomfort.
To add to all of these beautiful upgrades, the 2018 Slingshot RAD also features their K9 mounting system now making it even quicker, easier and more secure to mount them on to your board. Described by the Slingshot Pro Riders as "a massage from 10,000 marshmellows." the Slingshot Rad boot uses a bottomless base system to enhance your foot to board feel for better control and stability.
These boots have not only earned their name by performance, but they have earned their way into the tippy top of the staff wish list for this season.
The Slingshot Rad's inner form fitting Reflex liners have seen a redesign for EVEN BETTER cushion and durability. Combined with a laced lower and a removable Gummy Strap, upper power strap allows for customisable rider comfort in seconds. Again Rad is not just a choice... It's a lifestyle. Are you RAD ENOUGH?
This boots are ideal for anyone looking to really send their progression to a new level in kite or wake!
