|I posted this topic on Wakeworld, but I didn't receive much feedback, so I figure I'd ask here as well....
I'm coming back from a serious injury this year so I haven't been following the Market as closely as I used to, and I need some advice on the latest gear...
I'm looking for the lightest, most responsive / stiffest boots on the market. I currently ride in a pair of Ronix Cells; but they've become too broken in...
I'm looking at the Ronix Code 55's, Ronix Kinetik's, and the Slingshot Rad's
I'm coming back from a detached Achilles Tendon and 3 broken ankle bones from a Snowboarding injury; so I need something firm and super light weight.
I'd say I'm an aggressive rider, and I go big and far... so I can't figure out- with my injury and a nasty crash- if it'd be better to become completely ejected from the boots or stay locked in?
Also, does anyone have any experience with Slingshot's Pill? I've read it's a little heavy.. but I ride a 2013 Recoil and love it, so I'm sold on the company...
Thanks in advance!
