HO Sports 2017 VTX w/ Fin Water Ski
The VTX employs a long, smooth rockerline designed to give skiers a much more stable and forgiving feel throughout edge changes. With no true flat spot, the VTX allows for less sticking points in the turn and casts out evenly and consistently onside and off.
A1 Width Profile
Years after its release, the Syndicate A1 is widely known as the best-shaped ski of the modern era due to its perfect combination of balance, stability, and maneuverability. For 2017, HO reemployed this shape, with it's very large sweet spot, giving skiers the proven battle-tested width profile that has become so beloved.
46-Degree Bevel Angle
Increased bevel angle allow the ski to roll on edge and turn like a narrow ski with the speed and stability of a wide ski, giving you the best of both worlds.
Carbon Fiber Speedskin
Advanced laminar textured ski base to reduce ski drag and increase speed with 20% less ski weight.
Stability Turning/Vibration Dampening System
Strategically located tip weight with an elastomer damping pad dampens the natural frequency of the ski's shovel for increased stability.
A proprietary combination of aerospace carbon fiber and Superlite Core Technology.
- Clean Edge Tail
From the heel of the back foot through the tail for added efficiency by reducing drag by 50%.
- Handmade in Seattle, WA.
- Syndicate adjustable fin block.
The Syndicate VTX is designed to maximize cross-course direction while minimizing rope load. The result is the fastest-moving ski HO has ever created. This water ski accelerates from buoy to wake more efficiently, allowing for ample deceleration and tight line turns. Shaped by waterski design legend and 5x world champion/5x world record holder Bob LaPoint, the VTX employs a revisited Syndicate A1 shape that is beloved by many for its large sweet spot and mix of balance and maneuverability. HO minimized material underfoot to maximize torsional and longitudinal flex for increased angle, which they call the Binding Spine. With its long, smooth single-radius rockerline and 46-degree beveled angle, the VTX gives a progressive and forgiving feel throughout edge changes. It rolls on edge and turns like a narrow ski with the speed and stability of a wide ski.
