HO CX SLALOMSKI 2017The 2017 HO Sports CX Slalom Waterski is the better ski for the type of skiing we love. Imagine the performance of a Syndicate waterski, optimized with a low drag tail, for effortless open water free skiing. Few things in life are as exciting as whipping out on your pullout to see a mile of glass laid out in front of you. The acceleration. The arcing carve. The tight line. You settle into that effortless rhythm and just wish it would last forever. Imagine a slalom water ski that could let you enjoy that moment for twice as long with half the effort. That is exactly what the HO Skis Cross- Over Collection was designed to do. If you are a water skier, you owe it to yourself to ride a HO Cross-Over Collection ski and create your moments.

CROSSOVER SKI: Perfect for open water rides and course!
Why a Freeride Construction?
The ultimate in cross-over ski technology, skis designed to deliver maximum performance with unparalleled efficiency. The Cross-Over Collection marries the high performance design of a Syndicate ski, with the ultra-efficient Clean Edge technology of a Freeride ski. The HO design team began with a record-breaking Syndicate ski design, increased the surface area of the ski by one ski size from the tip of the ski to the just behind the heel of the rear foot. Behind the rear foot the skis transition from traditional to futuristic; as the sidewalls rotate inward like a wakeboard edge and ski bevels disappear in the tail section of the ski. The combination of these two features allows the water to release cleanly off the bottom of the ski, as opposed to the traditional ski design in which water wraps around the bevel of the ski, up the sidewall and releases of the upper edge of the ski, thereby reducing the drag associated with this portion of the ski by 50%. Clean Edge technology is a step into the modern age of
ski design and the lack of physical effort required to ride these skis will forever change a skier?s perception of what is possible. Imagine riding a Syndicate ski designed to rip off 60 turns instead of 6 and you will begin to understand the powerful combination of performance and efficiency skiers are tapping into on HO Cross-Over Collection skis.
VIBRATION DAMPING SYSTEM: A strategically located tip weight combined with an elastomer damping pad, dampens the natural frequency of the ski?s shovel for increased stability. This system reduces tip ?chatter? or ?feedback? that can be caused by rough water at high speeds, resulting in a more confidence inspiring ?quiet? feel for the skier.
