The RAD boot is our highest performance fixed-liner wakeboard boot. With a combination of a lower-lace system and dual-zone Gummy Strap Closure System, the RADs offer customized support everywhere a rider needs it most. Whether you prefer to spend your time behind the boat or in the park, these boots have a decade of experience and design evolution, maximizing rider confidence and extending ride times for wakeboarders all around the world.
- K9 Mounting System – A Slingshot exclusive, the K9 Mounting System solidifies your boot-to-board connection while minimizing the boots’ overall footprint on the board and allowing for more stance widths and angles than any other boots on the market.
- Bottomless Base System – Our Bottomless Base System maximizes riders “feel” and connectivity with their board and the water. Boot liner soles are in direct contact with the boards’ surface, allowing for a more immediate transfer of energy.
- Gummy Strap Closure System – Our Gummy Strap Closure System has changed the game for wakeboarders around the world when it comes to dialing in the perfect amount of pressure throughout the boot.
- Built-In J Bars – In the heels of the liners, built-in J Bars cup the back of the riders ankle to eliminate all “play” in the heel of the boot, elevating both the support and performance.
- 3D-Molded Tongue – 3D-Molded Tongues make our boots “fit like a glove” every time you slide in. Forget about the classic wiggle and dance to find the perfect place for your foot—with 3D molded tongues the fit is perfect time after time.
- Lower Lace + HHD System – The lower laces of the RAD boot tie into the integrated HHD (Heel Hold Down) System to cinch the boots tight over the rider’s toes while at the same time tightening the harness that wraps around the boot liner’s heels.
