Radar Waterskis has officially announced the release date and availability of the Vapor, their new flagship tournament ski. After 10 months of development, The Vapor will be available on Tuesday August 13th, coinciding with the start of the U.S. National Waterski Championships. Skis will be available in West Palm Beach, FL, Canadian Nationals and specialty retail partners the following week.
"This ski was made for the tournament skier. Design was processed through the eyes of the national level competitor as much as our pro team. It only seems fitting that we would be displaying it for the first time at Okeeheelee Park and Predator Bay in Calgary during the two North American Nationals," said Chris Sullivan, VP of Global Branding, "I wish we could speak with every skier worldwide about how excited we are for people to get on The Vapor."
The Vapor will be available in 3 models. The Lithium Construction is Machined PVC and 100% carbon laminates. This Lithium Vapor will be the ski initially released in August, followed at a later date by the Graphite Vapor (Machined polyurethane with 100% carbon) and the Alloy Vapor (Machined polyurethane with carbon/fiberglass laminates). Sizes available are 63.5, 65, 66, 67, 68 and 69.5.
"The ski's been on the water for a while now. Whitney McClintock won Moomba on a prototype. Jason McClintock tied the Canadian national Record and both he and Rossi rode Vapor at the Masters. Plus some of our test team have had tournament PB's the first weekend riding. Timing is everything, so it's been hard to keep the excitement concealed," added Sullivan, "We followed our proven design guidelines with some new twists. This ski is running new flex, a further forward boot location and all new fin settings from anywhere we've been in the past."
The Vapor will be available for $1399.99 at Authorized Radar Pro Shops worldwide.
