THE 2020 NOMAD
Large and in charge, the Nomad is a crossover boat/cable board with a bigger, wider outline that delivers more pop, smoother landings, easier planing and more style and steeze on the water.
The Nomad is the Godfather of the big board revolution. Built as a crossover model between boat and cable, this board is what lead us to the discovery that bigger boards bring bigger pop, smoother landings, more stability, and of course MORE STYLE on the water. With the added surface area, riders are able to plane at slower speeds, ride with less tension on the line and, in turn, spend more time riding with less fatigue on the body. The Nomad has enough stiffness in the belly to deliver excellent pop behind the boat, yet in the past few seasons has become a cable favorite as well.
Why you’ll love the 2020 Nomad:
If you want to increase your ride time and decrease the arm fatigue, the added surface area of the Nomad is the answer! Built for both cable and boat riders to enjoy.
Available in four sizes:
145, 150, 155, 160 (cm)
Singleshot Fusion Sidewall
Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. This innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
CONTINUOUS ROCKER PROFILE
Faster board speed on the water, ride for longer with less arm fatigue, exciting, fast and fun feel.
Medium flex pattern:
The happy-medium flex that delivers plenty of pop behind the boat and a forgiving and buttery feel in the park.
Gives an additional grip, stability and traction on the water. A tighter, more locked-in feel.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Vertically laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their famous flavor and flex.
Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Light, flexible and super strong, the inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
Extended Board Lengths
If there’s one thing we’ve grown certain of over the past few years, it’s the fact that bigger boards are simply more fun! Behind the boat it equates to more “float” across the wake, and in the park it gives the rider more of a snow style feel, all the while decreasing line tension and planing speeds.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, the park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years - Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
2020 OPTION BINDINGS
The Option is a high-performance open-toed boot ideal when you want to share your ride. Perfect for riders with growing feet or casual riders who don’t want or like the full lock-in feeling of a closed-toe boot.
The Option boot is the perfect blend of high-end design influence and entry-level functionality and value. It’s a boot that can be shared amongst several riders (with similar foot sizes) thanks to the open toe design, while the gummy strap closure provides the comfort, performance and support of a full-function closed toe boot. The Option’s tri-zone closure allows riders to tighten the boots and customize the fit with ease.
Why you’ll love the 2020 Option:
The combination of versatility and performance. Many open-toed boots are cheap and chincy, but the Option is built around the higher-end boot platform to ensure full performance and function.
S/M (4-7) - M/L (8-10) - L/XL (11+)
OPEN TOE DESIGN
Open toe boots are a great option when looking to share gear between various riders. Some riders feet are bigger, and others are smaller, and the open toe is more accommodating for all...
DIRECT BASE SYSTEM
The direct base system puts the footbed DIRECTLY in contact with the surface of the board, giving riders a more connected feel and a more immediate board reaction when initiating toe and heel pressure.
3D MOLDED TONGUE
The 3d molded tongue is all about comfort and fit, meaning it fits the contours of your ankles the first time, eliminating the need to “break them in”.
Located in the heels of each slingshot boot liner, these built in J bars “embrace” the achilles with love and affection, increasing comfort and helping to lock the heel into position for the most secure fit.
TRI ZONE CLOSURE
Upper, middle, and lower zones can be customized using signature gummy straps to deliver the EXACT fit riders are looking for. Some like them tight at the bottom, others like them tight at the top, then there are those who ride them all FULLY CRANKED. The Choice is yours...
SLINGSHOT’S SIGNATURE GUMMY STRAPS
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 so you can customize your style.
