HO Syndicate S2 Water Ski w/ Exo Form Bindings 2013
SYNDICATE S2 WATERSKI
Will Asher, Jon Travers and Marcus Brown ski 36mph. The LaPoint's, Greg Badal and Nowlan
ski 34mph. But they all like winning tournaments. Designed for the fast, low drag ride that Big
Dawgs covet, the S2 has a quicker turn shape than the A3 while still maintaining the stability
Syndicate skis are known for. Speed is created by a combination of Step Concave technology
and all new Low Taper Shape. Step Concave technology introduces micro steps running down
the concave surface on the bottom of the ski. These micro steps free the water molecules that
adhere to the wetted surfaces of a traditional ski and give the S2 the low drag, fast ride skiers
dream of. The second ingredient is the all new Low Taper shape. Traditional water skis have
a large amount of taper from the wide point of the ski towards a narrow tail. The S2 has a Low
Taper shape that narrows at a much slower rate thereby increasing the amount of surface area in
the back half of the ski. As a result when a skier makes an aggressive turn and a traditional ski
stops, loses it forward momentum, and gets stuck ‘in a hole” before accelerating the S2 has the
surface area to support aggressive turn and keep driving the ski forward for instant acceleration.
Less stop and go skiing, and a more efficient line is achieved on the all new S2.

you fall while snow skiing or playing basketball, you don’t come out of
your shoes, right? The demands of arcing a turn down your local
mountain or cutting to the rim dictate a precise fit with a high level
of foot support. Water Skiing is no different. That is why HO is proud
to introduce the EXO System. The EXO System is comprised of the
revolutionary Variable Retention System (VRS) Binding and EXO Shell
boots, allowing skiers to remain in their boots, but release from their
ski in, out the front, type falls. EXO Shell Boot Technology combines
the fit of your favorite pair of running shoes with a level of support
unmatched in any other water ski boot. The VRS Binding utilizes a
combination of Dual Spring and Quick Cam Technology to create controlled
retention and consistent release. Available in two different Flex Index
models, the EXO Pro and EXO Form are designed to accommodate
intermediate to advanced skiers.
The EXO System is the Worlds 1st Water Ski
Specific Hard Shell Boot System. Designed with the goal of creating the
perfect water ski boot, EXO System represents a design evolution not
seen in the water sports industry since the invention of the fiberglass

Variable Retention System (VRS) Binding:
VRS Binding utilizes a combination of Dual Spring and Quick Cam
Technology to create controlled retention and consistent release. Dual
Spring technology concentrically coils two differently powered springs
inside one another. The outer, less powerful spring is compressed to
create retention for lighter weight skiers. As skier weight increases,
the inner, more tightly coiled spring begins to compress providing the
required retention skiers demand. Quick Cam Technology utilizes a caming
mechanism to transform the rotary motion of the heel release unit into a
linear compression of the dual springs. It acts like a light switch.
The system is 100% engaged while in skiing position. When the skier gets
out of position, as in an out the front type fall, the resulting torque
force flicks the light switch to the off position providing the skier a
clean consistent release from the ski.
The EXO Frame is an extruded aluminum
frame linking the toe and heel assemblies of the VRS binding as well as
the connection point of the EXO Shells to the system. The EXO Frame
utilizes a Free Float Design to reduce the impact the EXO Shells have on
longitudinal ski flex. Unlike any other plate design on the market, the
EXO Frame achieves its neutral condition while your ski is in its
loaded position by implementing an over rocker shape in comparison to
your ski’s unloaded rocker line. Under skiing conditions, the system is
complete and all components are working together to create pure ski
The first of their kind, the EXO
Shells are the only water ski specific injection molded boots ever
created. The lower shell design has a wide platform base. This allows
the skier to stand directly on the ski’s surface. The skier's feel is
greatly increased as power is transmitted directly from the rigid
supportive shell structure directly into the ski without the added
damping element of the aluminum plate. The platform base design creates a
strong lateral connection between EXO Shell and ski for increased edge
The EXO Shells upper cuff was designed to accommodate no
restrictions in the rearward flex range, allowing the skier to let the
ski move outbound off the second wake more effectively. The EXO shells
forward flex range was designed to have a definite stop point where the
lower shell and upper cuff mechanically interface, protecting the
skier’s ankle in out the front type falls.
The EXO Shells are available in two different Flex Index models,
the EXO Pro and EXO Form. The EXO Pro (Flex Index 15) utilizes a stiffer
shell and cuff compound for a quicker more powerful boot. The Course
Fit Liner and Foot Bed are firm for instantaneous transfer of foot to
ski movement. The EXO Form (Flex Index 10) is a slightly softer version
of the EXO Pro. Complete with a Form Fit Liner and Foot Bed, the EXO
Form offers a softer more plush feel in a high performance shell.
the EXO Pro and EXO Form models are offered in two different
configurations, Double EXO Shells and the Front Cuff/Rear Toe Boot
options. The Double EXO Shell configuration was designed to accommodate
skiers who prefer the support of double boots. The EXO Shell Front
Cuff/Rear Toe Boot option was specifically designed for skiers who
traditionally use a rear toe plate or a soft rear boot. The Rear Toe
Boot was designed extensively over the past ski season by 2009 World
Champion Will Asher to provide the feel and range of motion rear toe
plate skier's love, with the added benefit of keeping both feet together
in out the front type falls. The Rear Toe Boot is the future! Every
skier needs to try it to believe it!
