The 2019 Vapor completely redefines what we previously thought possible on a ski. Additional width through the tail makes the ski sit more level and allows speed to be carried more consistently. The area directly under your front foot has an increased taper, which lets the ski move through the finish of the turn easier and allows the tip height to stay constant, increasing efficiency. The wide spot of the ski has been moved forward, giving you the ability to stand over your front foot with confidence. The outcome, a ski that carries speed and creates angle better than anything on the market.
Pro Build designates a PMI Core and Textreme Carbon infused with Innegra. PMI is the lightest and most responsive foam money can buy, allowing a skier to get more attainable angle out of the turn and the ability to hold it through the wakes. Textreme lets the ski flex instantly and consistently, giving the skier more speed from a wider point. The Pro Build Vapor is everything a competition skier ever wanted, designed to perform between 32-36 MPH and in the slalom course to elite levels. It's our Pro Team's model of choice but is also great for those looking to improve their skills at any level, all you have to do is pick a color!Riding Style: Competition

PMI Foam is the industry leading core with its lightweight, reactive qualities. More speed and instant connection is how that translates on the water.
The addition of corrugated contours through the tip of the ski allows it to flex when loaded at the finish of the turn. The ski is easier to turn. quicker to accelerate. and creates space more efficiently before the buoy with the addition of CorFlex.
Starting the tip rocker directly at the end of the flat spot gives the ski more fluidity and makes the transition from turning to pulling seamless. More rocker in the tip helps the finish of the turn happen more quickly and with more stability.
The flat spot is your balance point. by making this point right at the toes of your front foot you get a balanced place to stand at every single turn. This balance allows you to stand with confidence and make symmetrical turns on both sides of the course.
Our unique straight lines allow the ski to be the fastest on the market. The lack of outside radius decreases drag and lets the ski flow with ease from side to side. In turn you're getting more cross course speed than any other ski on the market.
Rocker defines the pivot point on a ski; for 2019 we've moved that contact point closer to the ball of your front foot. which helps the ski pivot easier. The tight radius quick turns are then balanced with our new tail rocker lines that add tail support off the buoy. giving you the ability to build more speed from a wider point.
The Vapor width allows the ski to achieve maximum edge angle in the turn and while cutting. This width sets the precedent in our line as the pinnacle of performance both in the course and while free skiing.
