HO Syndicate Alpha Slalom Ski Blank

The HO Syndicate Alpha builds on the success of the Syndicate PRO design. Asher, Travers, LaPoint and Wingerter spent the 2018 season fine-tuning a loose and light iteration of the Syndicate PRO design; the all new Syndicate Alpha. The Alpha shares the same width profile as the Syndicate PRO, but is designed with a shallower concave depth in the tail of the ski, and a flatter tip rocker, for a loose and light feel on the water.With less downforce than the PRO, the Alpha accelerates with less physical effort, and projects wider off the second wake. The shallower tail concave allows the Alpha to have more turn drift for tight rope turn finishes. Optimized for skiers who prefer lower drag, less physical effort, fast, light and quick turning skis, the Syndicate Alpha is ready for combat. Who dares wins. HO Skis!

Available Sizes: 65", 66", 67", 68"

HO SYNDICATE HARDSHELL SKI BOOT

The Syndicate Hardshell Boot & Binding System is the latest step into the future of competition waterski gear. The top choice of tournament slalom skiers around the world for its reliable performance, this release mechanism employs an adjustable spring loaded heel unit that allows for tension release point modification in relation to skier weight and preference. Hardshell reliability is now paired with top of the line agility by employing our Full Contact Outsole. This contoured heel and toe zone enables full contact between boot and plate thereby stabilizing the connection by reducing lateral slippage and increasing agility. For maximum comfort and cushioning we’ve employed a heat-moldable liner, allowing for a personalized fit that contours to your foot shape for the best fit and feel in the industry. In addition, we’ve added a Velcro ankle strap to keep your liners on your feet. The light weight yet reliable snow ski inspired boot buckles allow for personalized tightening. Use the buckle ladder to tighten or spin the buckle for a more customized fit. The Memory Buckle allows you to get a consistent tightness on the upper cuff every time you ski.

Features

  • Rocker
  • Auto-centering Rockerline – An altered rockerline that sits flatter in the tip and tail rockers of the ski, creating speed and lift in the ski, allowing the ski itself to auto correct the skiers positions, driving them back to the center of the ski to create a consistent turn basis for the skier
    Flex
  • Flex Rating(1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – 8/10
  • Torsionally Stiff Flex – Reduces twist in the ski so in high load and pressure situations the ski will maintain it’s shape and hold its speed and acceleration through the finish of the turn
    Core
  • PVC Core – A tried and true core material that has proved itself on the top end ski’s for years, a high quality material that is lighter and stiffer than it’s PU counterpart creating greater feel and response in your ski.
    Laminates
  • Carbon Laminates – A traditional carbon laminate layer that is tried and proven, adds a snappy element to your ski, driving response through your cut and turns
    Shape
  • Classic Tournament Ski Shape – A smaller imprint on the water with the reduction of total surface area allows the ski to generate a greater and more aggressive edge hold, while maintaining the ability to sit tight through turns
    Clean Edge Tail – a tapered edge from the bottom of your back foot to the tail, reduces the ski’s drag by around 50%
    Flexbody Construction – A reduced profile ski body, combined with the overall construction gives greater torsional stability and greater response comparative to load under stress
    Concave
  • Full Rotation Tip/Tail Concave – A varying depth profile on the concave allows for the ultimate engagement between ski and water, with greater rotation into turns and overall better direction out of the turn. This happens through a deeper concave in the tip that mellows as it gets to the tail
    Other Features:
  • Carbon Fiber Speed Skin – A textured base which reduces drag, naturally increasing speed, while also reducing ski weight by 20%
