HO Sports FreeRide Slalom Ski w/ FreeMax ART
The HO Sports Freeride has become the standard in open water waterskiing. The Freeride features HO Sport's Clean Edge Technology. This revolutionary ski technology allows skiers to ski behind any boat, at any speed, in any water condition. Clean Edge is bevel-less and the sidewalls are rotated inward like a wakeboard edge. This combination causes water to release cleanly off the ski's bottom surface resulting in a 50% less drag than conventional skis.
Clean Edge Location - Less drag equals more lift and it is the lift on the rear 50% of the Freeride's running length that enables low drag skiing with less spray and effort. From under the skier's front foot through the forebody of the ski, the Freeride utilizes a traditional ski edge design. This rounded edge rides deeper in the water for the stability skiers need.
Carve Rails - Steep entry concave for amazing edge hold when laying down powerful arcs.
Freeride Flex - A snowski inspired flex pattern allows the Freeride to bend its rocker into turns providing smooth carving with low effort.
Hex Fin - NACA Airfoil inspired 3-dimensional fin enhances ski versatility by increasing glide speed and turning properties.
The FreeMax ART's easy to mount and adjust Direct Connect System gives the skier Natural Edge Angle for precise edge control & improved balance. It achieves the industry's shortest Flex Footprint which virtually eliminates ski flex dead spots so your ski turns as easy as designers intended. The DC system also allows for Micro Adjustment for infinite fore/aft and rotational adjustment.
