We've completely revamped our Water Ski Section at ActiveWake.com and have added tons of filtering tools and guides to help get you into the perfect Slalom Ski set-up. From ultra high-performance skis like the HO Syndicate A2 and the Radar Strada to aspiring course skier packages like the Radar Senate, or Radar P-6 - we've got a great selection for all levels of Slalom Skiing. Add in our excellent selection of water ski gloves and comp ski vests and we've got the most well-rounded ski selection out there.
If you loved the Theory you’ll really dig on the Katana. With a similar surface area quotient, the turning characteristics have been improved with reductions in line tension and drag. The Katana is an aggressive free riders dream.
Bent Vee Tech
Many of you reading this brochure are thinking “but I don’t turn buoys when I ski”, and that’s OK with us! In fact the vast majority of skiers in the world will never turn a buoy while dancing their water jig. The Bent Vee series of slalom skis was created to take you anywhere any time at any ability level. It’s the easiest, smoothest ski we’ve created with the least amount of drag you could ever imagine. Now don’t get us wrong. We take pride in the hi-performance level of every ski in our line, regardless of intended purpose! The fundamental aspects such as bevel and rocker line are that of a Vapor. So you ski assured, knowing you’re riding a high performance rip stick.Sidecut
Surface area was added behind your feet for lift on deep-water starts and stability when riding straight ahead. The widest point in the tip is much further forward than a conventional slalom ski, giving the feeling of a longer wheelbase. Imagine a ’73 convertible Fleetwood rolling down the highway. It doesn’t get any more stable. When the ski is turned on edge, it creates an automatic turn based on the inside radius sidecut. The ski just pivots right through both on and off side turns without effort.Rocker(s)
Every ski design actually has 2 rocker lines. The first one is down the center of the concave, which, in Bent Vee, is identical to the Vapor. The second rocker line is on the bevels (the part that touches a table), and we’ve made it flat and stable for consistent water flow in any conditions. By altering the sidewall thickness we can create a second “bevel rocker” suitable for the intended purpose which levels the attitude of the ski in the water. In this case, we made a free skier’s perfect rocker.Learn More
Senates have a flowing design. The end of the flat spot connects to a single rocker radius, determining tip height and defining tip rocker. This smooth transition continuously rises out of the concave until it feathers out to the flat surface in the tip. In a turn approach, as the water break moves forward on the ski, a graduating amount of support meets your forward movement. The depth of concave (suction) infinitely fades into the flat surface of the tip (support), creating a ride that is unhindered by tip bite or erratic speed breaks. This geometry also allows for smooth water flow entering the concave for a consistent ride. A perfect amount of tip height was met to help with rough water conditions and easy wake crossings.Alloy Senate
Water skiing’s main staple for the past 6 years. At its core, the Senate was designed to replace any ski on the water. Its versatility is unmatched. No ski is easier to jump on and ride than a Senate.Learn More
