HO xMAX Boot

The most outstanding cross-over water ski binding just got better by having even more tongue float to pair with its soft Marshmallow foam liner. As a result, the HO xMax boot has the best out-of-the-box fit in the trade. It is slightly stiffer than the HO freeMAX boot, which helps support more aggressive skiing. Dual lace zones with a low drag bungee top and static lace in the lower lace zone work together to secure the skier's foot for ultimate control. The removable footbed base plate system makes mounting quick and painless while the Direct Connect Mounting System offers optimal control by providing a natural edge angle, maximum stability, a short flex footprint, and micro adjustment. With all of these features combined, the HO xMAX provides an extremely comfortable fit with performance designed for crossover waterskiers eager to toss buckets anywhere, anytime.

Mounting Types:

Connects to the ski directly through the center of the footbed allowing for maximum adjustment and control. Can be mounted in either the front or rear binding position. Only available on 2015 and newer HO Skis.

  • Direct Connect Mounting System
    Direct Connect positions boot mounting hardware directly beneath the foot's natural balance and mobility centers: the heel and ball of the foot. Direct Connect eliminates the traditional mounting plate, greatly reducing boot weight, boot drag, and the boot's impact on ski flex. The result is a natural 1:1 skier-to-ski moment-of-inertia never experienced before on the water. Direct Connect allows the entire HO Skis Boot Collection to redefine what can be expected from a water ski boot.
