"This ski is finishing the turn with more angle and control than I've had in years." Doug Meeker
Doug is the head slalom ski coach and owner of The Liquid Edge. He demos a wide variety of skis every season, and the VTX is one of his favorite new designs. When compared the it's counterpart "The HO V-Type R" the VTX turns shaper and allows you to hold more angle out of a turn.
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.
