Slingshot Coalition Board with Rad Boots
wakeboThe 2020 Coalition is a board for the new-school park rider who isn’t scared to stand out from the crowd. It’s the perfect meld of medium/soft flex for the ultimate park experience.
2020 Coalition board
The Coalition is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever! With two new sizes (153 cm and 157 cm), both featuring an additional 5th insert for those ultra progressive riders looking to slide things in a little tighter for the ULTIMATE park steeze. Chined rails increase durability and allow the board to slide rougher surfaces without damaging the rails, and the medium-soft flex delivers the perfect combo of press-ability and rebound.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE COALITION BOARD
“It’s the hottest butter knife in the kitchen,” according to the Coalition Crew. These guys have taken park riding to new heights over the past few seasons, and the affinity for their boards has spread like wildfire ever since.

NEW ADDITIONAL 5th INSERT
For an ultra skinny mob stance (available on the 153cm and 157cm ONLY)
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and super strong, our 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.
HYBRID ROCKER PROFILE
Best of both- happy medium, a little more pop than continuous but still nice and fast on the water.
SLINGSHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, our park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years - Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
Built for cable and boat riders alike, the RAD is our legacy all-around boot that provides the happy-medium of fit, flex, and performance that versatile riders are looking for.

MORE ABOUT THE RAD
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 our 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 RAD BOOTS
The RAD 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 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, 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.
