BAM FOR THE NEW DV8 VERSATAIL COURSE SKI 2022
Over 55 years of research and development have culminated in the creation of the most advanced ski on the market.
By combining new innovations with time-tested technologies, we have built the ultimate slalom weapon. For 2022 we added a 63 inch size to accommodate smaller skiers and young competitors as well as two more Versatail shapes. Versatail offers the capability to fine tune the ski and achieve the perfect carve. The DV8 is your ticket to taking more off the rope and still clearing all 6.
Throughout the years, brands have been on a quest to create a ski that checks all the boxes. Yet because skiers have varying styles and skill sets, the one-shape-fits-all approach doesn’t always pan out for everyone.
With the 2022 Connelly DV8 and VersaTail, you choose how your ski rides and reacts.
While considerable masterminding is put into the overall construction of a high-end slalom ski — the sidecut, rocker, bevels, etc — many people don’t realize how large a part the last few inches of the tail play. A change in tail geometry can mean the difference in a ski performing in perfect rhythm with your personal style. Our patent pending VersaTail technology offers the ability to fine tune the flow of water off the tail of the ski, taking a step beyond the standard fin and binding position adjustments. Skiers can choose from one of three tails, which are all included with the 2021 Connelly DV8 Versatail Waterski. .

The DV8 has an increased rocker line, predominantly in the tail, allowing it to move from one edge out to the other much easier
We have gone with a more subtle top shape, particularly in the tip, to add support and control out of the turn. This creates a more balanced system, working together with the softer flex pattern and increased tail rocker
We have softened the flex pattern throughout the ski to work in concert with the new top shape and rocker line. The result? A more forgiving ski all-together
