The Graphite Vapor features a polyurethane core in the body of a Vapor. Polyurethane is damper foam which allows the ski to sit a little deeper in the water and makes for more progressive turns. Those skiing in a mix of open water and slalom courses favor the Graphite construction between speeds of 30-36 MPH.
The 2019 Vapor completely redefines what we previously thought possible on a ski. Additional width through the tail makes the ski sit more level and allows speed to be carried more consistently. The area directly under your front foot has an increased taper, which lets the ski move through the finish of the turn easier and allows the tip height to stay constant, increasing efficiency. The wide spot of the ski has been moved forward, giving you the ability to stand over your front foot with confidence. The outcome, a ski that carries speed and creates angle better than anything on the market.
The addition of corrugated contours through the tip of the ski allows it to flex when loaded at the finish of the turn. The ski is easier to turn, quicker to accelerate, and creates space more efficiently before the buoy with the addition of CorFlex.
Starting the tip rocker directly at the end of the flat spot gives the ski more fluidity and makes the transition from turning to pulling seamless. More rocker in the tip helps the finish of the turn happen more quickly and with more stability.
The flat spot is your balance point. By making this point right at the toes of your front foot you get a balanced place to stand at every single turn. This balance allows you to stand with confidence and make symmetrical turns on both sides of the course.
Radar's unique straight lines allow the ski to be the fastest on the market. The lack of outside radius decreases drag and lets the ski flow with ease from side to side. In turn you're getting more cross course speed than any other ski on the market.
Rocker defines the pivot point on a ski; for 2019 we've moved that contact point closer to the ball of your front foot, which helps the ski pivot easier. The tight radius quick turns are then balanced with their new tail rocker lines that add tail support off the buoy, giving you the ability to build more speed from a wider point.
The Vapor width allows the ski to achieve maximum edge angle in the turn and while cutting. This width sets the precedent in Radar's line as the pinnacle of performance both in the course and while free skiing.
