THE 2020 PILL
A hard-charging boat specific board with aggressive channeling and a stiff flex for edging hard, popping huge off the wake and carrying speed into the flats.
For hardcore boat riders, the Pill features Slingshot's most impressive channel technology in the 2020 line-up. NACA tech channels are cut on a constant curve, smoothing out the flow of water across the bottom of the board when on edge. This equates to more grip when you need it most (edging into the wake) without having to sacrifice speed. The Pill boosts off the wake thanks to stiff flex which triggers an immediate reaction for a “snappier” and livelier feel. Strap into the Pill and be prepared for blastoff!
Why you’ll love the 2020 Pill:
Built exclusively for riding boat, the Pill redefines the term “pop” when it comes to hitting the wake. The extra boost you’ve been searching for has arrived.
138, 142 (cm)
The stiffest flex pattern in the line, immediate reaction, responds the fastest, snaps back delivering the most immediate pop, holds shape better on bigger landings.
EDGE ENHANCERS (fins)
(4) .5 inch bolt on fins give riders the bite they need for holding an edge up the wake and added stability on landings down the endless liquid tabletops. Just don't get caught trying to nosepress these bad boys through the park.
NACA TECH CHANNELS
Cut on a constant curve, naca tech channels smoothly re-direct the flow of water down along the channel lines to increase traction without sacrificing speed.
Slower board speed on the water, increases load time off the wake which equates to even bigger pop.
SINGLESHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. The innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
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.

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.
