The Vapor name has become synonymous with balance and speed. As we moved to our newest shape, we simply wanted to build on the foundation we had created. The overall width of the ski has been decreased in an effort to create more efficient water flow and allow the ski to have a more level ride. Rocker was modified to increase the drive behind the boat and allow the ski to create more angle before the buoy. Lastly, we increased the concave and let it run through the tail of the ski to give more support and consistency at the apex of the turn. All of these simple changes allowed us to build a ski that is faster than its predecessor, has more automatic turns, and gives a truly consistent ride from turn to turn. You have to ski this thing, welcome to Vapor.
The Senate’s ability to carry speed is unmatched in the industry. This speed allows the skier to maintain width on the boat ultimately giving a sense of freedom sought after by those that ski in the course as well as those ripping open water turns. By taking our Vapor shape and adding two tenths of an inch in extra width we have created a stable riding platform. This platform creates the balance needed for a skier to feel at home, while the profile of the ski allows the skier to feel the speed and angle sought after at any level.
The Union follows suit with our design methods by being four-tenths of an inch wider than a Vapor. This extra width gives skiers the chance to feel ultimate balance while learning to ski at a higher level. We challenge you to find a ski that is more fun to ride in open water.
When it came time to design our kid’s specific ski, we wanted to make something that would have youngsters begging to ski more often! By utilizing our Senate shape with a kid’s specific flex we’ve created a ski that is easy to turn and efficient through the wakes. In designing this way, we make it easy for juniors to progress at a rapid rate, leaving them with a smile on their face and the desire to ski every day.
Our all-new Open Water series allows skis with more volume to ski at a high level with superior balance and support. It’s undeniable that surface area is your friend in skiing, it pops you out of the water with ease and it gives you the ability to float on top of the water. That surface area matched with our flat spine and the next evolution of Grip Rails has resulted in a ski that’s even easier to ride and has less drag. The all-new Sessions and Terrain will change the way you view a sheet of glass, go rip it up!
