NEW 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 new “Gummy Straps” are a revolutionary new closure system that utilizes super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Poly Urethane (TPU) to synch 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.

NEW DIRECT CONNECT SOLES
Baseplates are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s new 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.
NEW K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM
New for 2017, 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. A mounting rode is bolted onto the sole of the boot and connects by a rugged clamp, making this the most robust mounting system we’ve ever had.
