The Syndicate VTX is designed to maximize cross course direction while minimizing rope load. The result is the fastest moving ski HO has ever created. Skiers are accelerated from buoy to wakes more efficiently allowing for ample deceleration and tight line turns. Shaped by Waterski Design Legend and 5-time World Champion/5-time World Record Holder Bob LaPoint, the VTX employs a revisited Syndicate A1 shape that is beloved by many for its large sweet spot and mix of balance and maneuverability. We've minimized material underfoot to maximize torsional and longitudinal flex for increased angle, which we call the Binding Spine. With its long, smooth single radius rockerline and 46 degree bevel angle, the VTX is gives a progressive and forgiving feel throughout edge-changes while it rolls on edge and turns like a narrow ski with the speed & stability of a wide ski.
SINGLE RAIDUS ROCKER
The VTX employs a long smooth rockerline 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.
A1 WIDTH PROFILE
Years after its release, the Syndicate A1 is widely known as the best shaped ski of the modern era due to its perfect combination of balance, stability and maneuverability. For 2017, we've re-employed this shape, with its very large sweet spot, giving skiers the proven battle-tested width profile that's become so beloved.
46 DEGREE BEVEL ANGLE
Increased bevel angle allow 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.
CARBON FIBER SPEEDSKIN
Advanced laminar textured ski base to reduce ski drag/increase speed, with 20% less ski weight!
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.
