Slingshot Jewel Wakeboard Bindings - 2017
Jewel Wakeboard Boots Details
This female-specific boot is designed with the same two-zone closure system as the RAD boot but is scaled-down for a lower-profile fit. Featuring a two-zone closure system with a synch-tight interior and one upper strap, the Jewel provides the perfect balance between high comfort and high performance. For 2017 we’ve integrated upgrades both inside and out, including our new Gummy Strap closure system, improved interior padding and HHD (heel hold down) technology and our completely reworked K9 mounting system. For female riders looking for a boot designed specifically for their ergonomics and aesthetics, look no farther than the Jewel.
• Medium flex offers ideal balance between support and mobility
• High performance, high cushion interior
• Dual closure styles for optimal fit and flex
• Quick and easy entry/exit
• HHD design locks heel into place
GUMMY STRAPS: The closure you've been yearning for!
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 simple and brilliant 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.
