RADAR VAPOR PRO BUILD DAYGLOW 2017
The 2017 Radar Vapor Probuild Slalom Waterski is the finest competiion waterski on the water. It accelerates like a rocket ship and balances on a tightrope. The advancement of developing the rockerline in conjunction with sidecut has proven to create hydrodynamic harmony. No other waterski boasts such a parallel sidecut (keeping the ski riding level) with an answer for tip support created by the additional mass added in front of the wide spot on the Vapor waterski.
The new 2017 Vapor Pro Build Construction was modeled to offer you what the pros have known for more than a year. It?s knowing that there?s something better out there than PVC. Countless titles have been won under cloak during the development of this newest construction. Combine our new core with structural Textreme Carbon and dampening Innegra and you?ll find nothing more technically advanced anywhere. Welcome to the future.
BACK OF THE SKI: A new on-edge platform was designed by straightening the sidecut around the back foot. This gives the ski a consistent attitude after edge change, keeping the tip up, holding speed and direction toward apex. At 12? from the tail the sidecut narrows and the rocker kicks up freeing the tail from early turn initiation and unnecessary tip pressure. The concave is also flat through the back of the fin allowing for increased slide through the finish of the on side turn.
FRONT OF THE SKI: Wider parallel lines in the sidecut give the ski a stable place to run in the water on off side turns. Our newest concept now thins the sidewall, thinner than the middle of the ski, crowning the top surface. So although the ski design is wider, there is no additional resistance from the overall thickness of the ski. It rides in the water like a narrower ski while keeping the width to be the most stable turning off side ski ever. In addition, our forebody bevel design morphs infinitely into a hard edge in the tip of the ski. The further forward the water breaks, the more resistance you receive from Vapor.
THE ROCKER: In general terms, more rocker equals tighter turn radius. Too much rocker makes the ski a rocking chair, giving the skier nowhere to stand. The new Vapor rocker has an existing flat spot for a gas pedal for pushing away from the wakes and just enough to keep it auto centering. The rest of the rocker rises earlier with a big kick in the last 9?. It?s fast, nimble and initiates turns like its on rails.
PRO BUILD PMI CORE: Our newest construction moves what we know about ski building into the next realm. PMI is the next generation of lightweight reactive core foam. Its current application is aircraft construction based on its ability to easily shape and thermoform. In our application, PMI is lighter, more rigid (simplifying the layup) and more reactive. The latter benefit offers more feel and forgiveness, which is something PVC lacks as a core material. PMI also displayed minimal structural fatigue after longevity cycle testing compared to PVC, which eventuallybroke down. There is a noticeable difference between other lightweight core skis and our new ProBuild.
