SLINGSHOT 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.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and super strong, these 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.
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.
STANDARD FLEX TIPS
Slingshot’s signature flex tips were introduced in 2017 and are available on models such as the Windsor, Solo, Contrast, and Bishop Models. Designed to make nose and tail presses more exhilarating, flex tips are designed to move the flex point out from the belly of the board and more into the … tips … for a whole new feel on rails.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Vertically laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their famous flavor and flex.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, this park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years - Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
Slower board speed on the water, bigger pop off the wake. Ideal for boat riding or for locking into different sections of the flex on the cable on nose and tail presses.
Gives an additional grip, stability and traction on the water. A tighter, more locked in feel.
2020 JEWEL Bindings
A female-specific boot designed for ladies who shred. It has a lace-up lower and gummy strap upper, the Jewel is the happy-medium of flex, fit and performance for versatility in the park and behind the boat.
Slingshot’s got a thing for feet, and with more ladies in wakeboarding now than ever before, it’s only right that they treat those toes with the utmost respect. Sliding into a pair of 2020 Jewels is almost as satisfying as wearing a new pair of socks every day of the week, except the Jewels allow you to jump much higher. With a combo of a lace-up lower and gummy strap upper, riders can be sure they’ll get the snug and comfortable fit and support they need to ride with confidence each and every session.
Why you’ll love the Jewel:
The Jewel is a low profile, high performance, no BS boot for riders who value comfort, performance and versatility across all aspects of riding.
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 the 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, just please, clip those nails every few months. ; )
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.
