First Look: 2012 HO Sports Water Ski Gear

For 29 years, HO Sports has been working toward building a great ski so people enjoy their time on the water. See what they have in store for 2012, including water skis, boots, vests and gloves.

Water Skis

2012 HO Syndicate A2

The pro-level ski that Karina Nowlan and Jon Travers won on this past season, the A2 is designed to run deep in the water. Now for 2012, the refined flex pattern makes the A2 stiffer in the back half for speed and softer in the front for even better turning, and a new fin box allows for easy adjustment with just one tool. Crafted by Bob LaPoint, the HO Syndicate A2 features a variable concave design, five-stage rocker line, and torsional carbon construction with 100% carbon reinforcements.

2012 HO Syndicate S2

Brand new for 2012, the S2 rides high, runs fast and has a low drag, making it a great 34 mph ski that requires minimal effort. Designed by Bob LaPoint, the S2 features a five-stage rockerline, step concave design and a low taper, which keeps the tip of the ski lower at the end of your run.

2012 HO Triumph

Also brand new for 2012, the Triumph features a low taper, polyurethane foam core and blend of carbon and fiberglass reinforcements. Based on the Syndicate design but slightly larger, the Triumph has the performance of a high-end ski but rides

2012 HO Couture

A departure from old-school thinking on women's ski shapes, the Couture is a traditional-width slalom ski that cuts through the wakes instead of bouncing over them. A deeper concave, low taper geometry and five-stage rockerline deliver unparalleled stability, and the entire ski was engineered specifically for women.

Water Ski Boots

2012 HO Attack Boot

Brand new for 2012, the Attack boot is a super light-weight, baseless water ski boot with uni-body composite construction. It has all the edging power of a high-end boot while offering extreme comfort and control, thanks to a stiff-flex, 3-D molded tongue that acts like a hinge.

2012 HO Basis Boot

With a uni-body composite construction and baseless aluminum frame, the Basis boot also offers dual lace zones and a thin orthotic footbed. A brand new boot for 2012, the Basis features a soft-flex, 3-D molded tongue that acts as a hinge while in use, offering extra comfort and control.

2012 HO Exo Form Boot

With the softest injection-molded cuff and shell available, the brand new for 2012 Exo Form boot provides textile boot comfort paired with hardshell boot releasability and performance. The Exo Form also offers a new lacing configuration for shell closure and an overlay speed skin design for effortless entry.

2012 HO Floating RTP

All new for 2012, the Floating RTP is one-size-fits-all with a static lace enclosure. The floating tongue was designed by Will Asher, and the lean foot bed thickness provides an unmatched feel.

Water Ski Vests

2012 HO System CGA Vest

Grab the most comfortable Coast Guard approved ski vest available and hit the water. The System vest is a four-panel, super stylish Type III vest with segmented foam and rib panels for more mobility, and glideskin shoulder panels and blind buckles for a sleek appearance.
