Built in 1971 by founding father Herb O’Brien, Radar Lake is the second ever man made lake (the first with turn islands), that is still duplicated even today, around the world, as the perfect blueprint of what a lake should be. Herb’s early vision of our sport was clear and remains our mantra in design and direction.
This is the Radar Lab, the birthplace for all Radar innovation. This is our home, where we can take a concept from the computer screen to the lake within a few steps.
GREAT JUST GOT BETTER IN THE NEW VAPOR.
With modifications in every design category, we are reintroducing the best-selling competition ski in the industry.
Our focus through our last few ski designs has been based on creating a shape that has speed and direction off the second wake. Both characteristics are crucial for short-line slalom. In our new Vapor we have addressed and fine-tuned turning characteristics, making this ski the best one-two punch ever on the water. Now you can go as fast as you want and turn from any position.
· New sidecut proportions
· New rockerline
· New bevel shape.
· New styling
Now with TeXtreme spread toe carbon:
Our exclusive partnership with Textreme spread toe carbon has allowed us to create a stronger more consistent product. Fewer layers of Carbon are needed to fine tune flex and torsional properties when replaced with one layer of Textreme. At 20% lighter than conventional carbon, Textreme brings an added consistency to the Vapor not possible by its competitors.
Innegra Technology Inside:
Innegra is a high modulus fiber that increases durability, strength and (most importantly in our application) disperses energy and reduces vibration. Innegra takes the chatter out of the tip of the ski in rougher conditions, making the Lithium Vapor suitable for more skiers on more bodies of water.
BentVee FREE-SKIING SERIES - Created to take a skier anywhere, anytime, no matter the terrain.
BentVee defines the sidecut of our new series of open water skis. The "bend" represents the triple-radius edge shape, while overall the ski only tapers slightly from tip to tail. Hence, the Vee.
With BentVee Sidecut contact to the water has been increased for the most stable platform available. This large flat spot limits mistakes by forcing the skier into the correct place on the ski.
The triple-radius sidecut is designed to create lift behind your feet, while reducing friction in turns. This ski series has a flat spot in the center of the concave, shallowing the dish (making the ski faster and more free on the water) without limiting grip. Drag has been CUT IN HALF and a skier has never had so little line tension while remaining stable.
The concave flat spot has allowed us to keep the sidewall thinner for a more effective edging ski. We have always taken pride in having the best skiing ski in every shape class. This is truer now more than ever.
Open water Free-skiing is not a new phenomenon. It’s always been and remains the majority of peoples skiing experience. We’ve directly addressed the need for a ski made for this arena.
Welcome to the next generation of open water skiing.
