The Jewel is the sister to the RAD, with all the same features, just better looking. Most seasons the male team riders request to wear the women’s boot and we can’t say we blame them. Wearing the Jewel boot feels a bit like an hour appointment at the spa. The last 20 minutes are almost depressing because it feels so good but you know it’s going to be over soon and then you’ll have to get back to “contributing to society.” For those lucky enough to wakeboard all day with no worries, the Jewel is their boot of choice as it goes the distance and keeps all the little piggies snug, warm and happy.
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 female riders looking for a boot designed specifically for their ergonomics and aesthetics, look no farther than the Jewel.
JEWEL RIDER PROFILE
You’ll love the Jewel Boots if you’re a female rider who wants a fully-functional AND fashionable boot designed and built specifically for you.
Gummy STRAPS: The closure you’ve been yearning for Gummy Straps are a simple solution to a problem that has afflicted wakeboarding boots since the very beginning. In technical terms, Gummy Straps are super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Poly Urethane (TPU). In rider's terms, Gummy Straps are a rad new way to synch your boots tight and keep them tight no mater how long you ride or how hard you crash. 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. They're also easily interchangeable and each boot comes with two sets of colors so you can customize your style.
DIRECT CONNECT SOLES: No more baseplates. Slingshot’s direct connect soles reduce the footprint of the boot and allow 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.
K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM: Slingshot’s unique 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.
