The 2014 Slingshot RAD

Slingshot doesn’t try to do anything fancy with the RAD, but they don’t have to. It is a nice solid, middle of the road, reasonably priced boot. The RAD is stiffer than the KTV, not quite as stiff as Hyperlite’s options but comes up a tad stiffer than the Ronix Ones. It’s a cinchable laceup with a velcro cuff.

The Slingshot RAD has 2 nice beefy J-bars for excellent heel hold down and a fixed liner.

Basically, if you want a stiff, solid, boot, don’t mind a couple of grams of extra mass and don’t want to pay Ronix prices, the RAD is a good choice.
