Description

The Vapor name has become synonymous with balance and speed. The best materials wrapped into the best shape on the market just got better for 2022...

Radar Vapor Pro Build Slalom Ski

The Pro Build Vapor is everything a competition skier ever wanted, designed to perform between 32-36 MPH and in the slalom course to elite levels. It’s Radar's Pro Team’s model of choice but is also great for those looking to improve their skills at any level. By riding a Pro Build Vapor you ensure that you have the best materials wrapped into the best shape on the market. Now all you have to decide is which color you like best.

The Vapor reigns supreme when it comes to feel on the water. For 2022, Radar created a ski that feels truly automatic in the turns. Simply ride the line out to apex, release a hand, turn, and off you go to the other side. The ski can be turned from any position and has led skiers to say there’s no sweet spot, rather an infinite area to make incredibly tight turns. More side-to-side power combined with these automatic turns yields a softer, more flowy overall feel than any ski we’ve produced to date. The balance this ski creates allows a skier to make mistakes yet still move the ski underneath them to maintain speed and direction. This entirely new shape for 2022 will have you running earlier lines than you ever imagined; just rip and repeat. 

Shape - The wide spot on the ski has moved forward and width has been added from the middle of the ski through the tip. This gives the ski a more tip to tail taper and more support through the front part of the ski. The increase in taper presents the ski with a slightly more tip-up riding attitude and allows the ski to pull through the turn in a more connected, powerful way. The result is less body movement needed to get tight radius turns. The new ski also has slightly less volume in the tail. By reducing this surface area, the tail of the ski is able to smear outward while also staying planted in the water. Ultimately, the updates in shape help it to ride much closer to the ideal line for any given speed and rope length.  

Rocker - The tip rocker on the new Vapor starts just after the wide spot. This relieves tip pressure and increases forgiveness, allowing a skier to have a bigger platform to stand on coming into the turn. This also helps keep the ski keep moving outbound in the transition and makes the ski incredibly more predictable in the turns it creates. Moving back from the wide spot, the rocker lines are all new. These new lines create a ski with increased tail rocker which softens the way the ski rotates or carves through the turn. The result is a feeling of increased angle from a wider place with an instant acceleration. 

Concave - The additional concave depth running throughout the bottom of the ski is one of the most noticeable differences in this new shape. This channels more water directionally from tip to tail, resulting in significantly more side-to-side drive and holding power. More drive and hold allow a skier to be faster as they near centerline which results in a more up-course path. Another result from an increased concave is increased pressure on the bevels, allowing the ski to feel extremely connected to the water. This gives a skier the freedom to control the path of the ski with more ease.

Bevels - The front of the ski carries a sharper, more angular bevel design to harness the increased water flow from the new concave design. This gives the skier more ability to feel how the water interacts with the tip of the ski to create sharper, more predictable turns. In the tail of the ski, the bevel is softened, allowing the water to wrap around the bevel easier. The tip of the ski pulls harder through the turn while at the same time, the tail is able to smear while staying planted in the water. This feathered approach makes the turns feel much more natural and less forced.

Thickness - Sidewall height carries constant to provide balance for the increased lift created by adding width. In an effort to keep the ski nimble, sidewall thickness is reduced to produce the connected, tight turning radius of the ski. 

Edge Angle - The Vapor width allows the ski to achieve maximum edge angle both in the turn and while cutting. This width sets the precedent in our line as the pinnacle of performance both in the course and while free skiing.

Radar Carbitex Vapor Boa Ski Boot

The all-new Vapor boot rewrites what is possible in waterski footwear by creating the pinnacle in hybrid boot technology. For the first time a rigid lower skeleton is connected to a Carbitex upper cuff to create the perfect blend of connection and control. The rigid lower skeleton gives a skier complete control over the edges of their ski while the Carbitex upper cuff allows a skier to move over their ski with ease to find balance and connection to the water. A Boa dial completes the package to give a precise fit every single time. Anyone that’s ever owned a Vapor boot in the past now has a reason to upgrade to our latest technology, strap it on and see for yourself the difference, skiing is believing.

Vapor Chassis
The Vapor Chassis pushes the boundaries of boot technology by utilizing a three-part mold to form a rigid lower skeleton. This new design offers the control
of a hard shell but stays true to our hybrid style by not sacrificing in the slightest when it comes to fit and connection to the ski.

Pulse Liner
The Pulse Chassis features reinforced 3D contours with integrated arch support. It also sports a wider fitting chassis than our Vapor Chassis for a more comfortable ride.

Feather Frame Chasis
The Feather-Frame Chassis stands on a pedestal as the only boot system to completely integrate the mounting system, baseplate and outer shell into a single component.  This allows you to stand closer to the ski and offers a better connection. 

Carbitex
Carbitex is a carbon fibre textile material that is more reactive than any material on the market. This reactivity translates into an unparalleled connection to the ski. 

Boa
The Boa integration into the boots offers an instant response found only in the Radar line. Transform your experience through a fast, customizable, and comfortable fit. 

Intuition
Our exclusive partnership with Intuition gives you a heat-moldable, lightweight, pre-formed fit. Intuition foam ensures you have a perfect fitting liner for ultimate performance. 

Wrap Tech
Wrap Tech fuses the external skeleton of the boot to the base textile layer which gives the boot the ability to conform to the shape of your foot, in turn giving you more response.
