PVC Lithium Core 100% Carbon Laminates
Torsional Stability Carbon Layer
Hand Crafted at Radar Lake
47.5 degree bevel angle
What you'll feel: As a core material, PVC creates energy in the build of the ski. The weight reduction in PVC skis is a benefit outweighed by the quick-tempered nature of the material itself. Generally used in closed course conditions, the reaction time of Lithium construction is instant. Any feedback you send to the ski will be immediately felt in the reaction time.
VAPOR DESIGN FEATURES:
Side-cut - In general terms, the widest point in the side-cut of a ski is always somewhere right in front of your front foot. That widest spot in the profile is the extent of your ultimate tip support. With Parallel Side-Cut, we've lessened the taper in front of and behind this wide point. This reduces the teetering fore and aft found in other skis. In our improved Vapor Parallel Side-Cut, adding more width only in front of the wide spot, thus running closer to true parallel lines, has further perfected this theory. The increased support is felt off the second wake through the finish of the turn in stability and the advantage of being able to take more speed into the turn.
Rocker - Fluid Rocker Design is denoting less radii making up the complete rocker line for smoother water flow and a ski ride that remains stable from tip to tail; eliminating tip rise and tail blow-out. The Vapor rocker line follows this premise but with a smaller center section flat spot than is predecessor. In creating early rise rocker by reducing the length of the flat spot from both ends, the start of the turn is delayed and the turn radius is shortened.
Base Design - When defining the base styles on a slalom ski:
Edge-to-edge concave skis are going to be freer on the water with more places to stand. The control of direction and edge angle off the second wake is put in the hands of the skier. With more slide through the turn, edge-to-edge skis are generally better on-side turning, where the water break on the ski (during the turn) is further back on the side cut.
Railed skis - have more lift and roll into the turn with a more neutral (tip down) riding attitude which is great for off side turns. These skis track with direction off the second wake in a more automated style.
Our blueprint with Vapor is to have the best of both base designs. From the wide spot to the tail of the ski, we run an edge-to-edge concave design allowing for more speed, control of ski placement and more slide through the finish of on-side turns. In front of the wide spot, the Radar 5-speed rail runs forward with the concave, giving support to the forebody of the ski when the tip is engaged. The rails create pull through the finish of an offside turn when the ski is riding with a more level attitude.
