HO Syndicate VTX Slalom Water Ski 2018
$1,129.95 was $1,800.00
The VTX is tried and true in its tournament level performance. With more cross wake acceleration than any ski HO has designed before, the VTX is ready to help you set a new personal best. It's long, smooth rocker line keeps the skier stable and balanced while coming out of a turn and crossing the wakes. There's no true flat spot, so you'll get a very fluid, natural feel when navigating the slalom course. Exclusive to HO, the VTX is equipped with Carbon Fiber SpeeedSkin to reduce suction and add speed to the bottom of the ski. The Vibration Dampening System found on the tip of the ski dampens the "chatter" when skiing in less than ideal conditions, allowing you to be confident no matter what time of the day you leave the dock.
HO Skis is proud to design, test, build and finish all Syndicate Skis in the United States of America. From conception to completion these skis are handcrafted by the Legend/Champion/Expert design team headed by lead engineer and HO VP Dave Wingerter, Ski Legend and Master Shaper Bob LaPoint, and the Syndicate pro team including Will Asher and Jon Travers.

- 46 DEGREE BEVEL ANGLE
Increased bevel angle allows the ski to roll on edge and turn like a narrow ski with the speed & stability of a wide ski, giving you the best of both worlds.
- A1 WIDTH PROFILE
Revisited A1 shape, beloved by many for its large sweet spot and mix of balance and maneuverability.
- BINDING SPINE
Minimized material underfoot to maximize torsional and longitudinal flex for increased angle
- BOB LAPOINT DESIGN
Shaped by Waterski Design Legend and 5-time World Champion/5-time World Record Holder
- CARBON FIBER SPEEDSKIN
Advanced laminar textured ski base to reduce ski drag & increase speed, with 20% less ski weight!
- CLEAN EDGE TAIL
Refined Clean Edge from the heel of the back foot through the tail for added efficiency by reducing drag by 50%
- FLEXBODY CONSTRUCTION
A thinly sculpted ski body coupled with a carbon rich construction improves torsional characteristics for better responsiveness to skier load in and out of turns.
- SINGLE RADIUS ROCKER
The VTX employs a long smooth rocker line designed to give skiers a much more stable and forgiving feel throughout edge changes. With no true flat spot, the VTX allows for less sticking points in the turn and casts out evenly and consistently onside and off.
- STABILITY TUNING/VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM
Strategically located tip weight with an elastomer damping pad dampens the natural frequency of the ski's shovel for increased stability.
