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 RAD BINDINGS
Built for cable and boat riders alike, the RAD is a legacy all-around boot that provides the happy medium of fit, flex and performance, keeping versatile riders so very stoked.
We’ve come a long way since Day 1, and so has the RAD. Over the years this boot has become lighter, lower profile, higher performance and also far more flattering for calves. This is the flagship boot in the Slingshot line, built for all styles of riding. With features like a Dual-Zone-Closure system, Direct Base System and elegant but bomber build, it’s highly likely that you get RAD session after session.
Why you’ll love the RAD:

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 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 and each boot comes with two sets of colors so you can customize your style.
K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM
Continued for 2020, 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.
FORGED ALUMINUM MOUNTING RACK
Heavy Boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s forged aluminum mounting rack is incredibly strong and lightweight. This means a lighter overall setup. Lighter & stronger? You really can’t beat that.
DUAL ZONE CLOSURE SYSTEM
A laced Lower section combines with our Signature HHD system to secure the bottom half of the boot, while the gummy strap on top allows riders to customize the fit around their ankles. All shapes and sizes are welcome.
Slingshot’s HHD (Heel Hold Down System) integrates with the lower lacing zone, engulfing the heel with support from all angles as the lower zone is pulled tight, increasing comfort and providing a more secure fit.
Base plates 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.
