      Performance achieved via Automatic Angle Design The secret to unlocking the slalom course puzzle is creating and maintaining ski angle. Ask any of the great champions of our sport, from Bob and Kris LaPoint, to Wade Cox to Will Asher and they will tell you the name of the slalom course game is angle. You create and maintain angle and a lot of other things fall into place. The LaPoints created angle with an unmatched power the water ski world has not seen since. Cox blew our minds with his all-out attack of ski angle via lower body compression and drive. Asher has perfected the technical science of angle creation and helped the Syndicate design team develop our game-changing combination of ski features known as Automatic Angle design. Automatic Angle design is a combination of a balanced ski width profile and increased bevel angle which allows the ski to automatically seek and maintain ski angle without the traditional aggressive skier lean. The angle of the bevel is actually steeper than a traditional ski which allows the ski to roll onto a high edge angle resulting in a quicker change of direction and increased angle in the slalom course. By achieving ski angle without aggressive skier lean, skiers reap the benefits of being wide and early for the next buoy without the consequences imposed by modern speed control systems due to heavy rope load. Ride the future, ride Syndicate Course skis with Automatic Angle design.

          The ultimate in cross-over ski technology, skis designed to deliver maximum performance with unparalleled efficiently. The all-new 2014 Cross-Over Collection marries the world record capable design of the Syndicate A3 with the ultra-efficient Clean Edge technology of the revolutionary Freeride ski, to create the perfect cross of performance and efficiency. The HO Syndicate design team began with record breaking A3 design, increased the surface area of the ski by one ski size from the tip of the ski to the just behind the heel of the rear foot. Behind the rear foot the skis transition from traditional to futuristic as the sidewalls rotate inward like a wakeboard edge and ski bevels disappear in the tail section of the ski. The combination of these two feature allows the water to cleanly release directly off the bottom of the ski, as opposed to the traditional ski design in which water wraps around the bevel of the ski, up the sidewall and releases of the upper edge of the ski, thereby reducing the drag associated with this portion of the ski by 50%. Clean Edge technology is a step into the modern age of ski design and the lack of physical effort required to ride these skis will forever change a skier’s perception of what is possible. Imagine riding an A3 designed to rip off 60 turns instead of 6 and you will begin to understand the powerful combination of performance and efficiency skiers are tapping into on HO Cross-Over Collection skis.

            Speed + Angle = Velocity. Born from velocity is V-TYPE. The all new 2015 Syndicate slalom ski comes from over 5 years of research into the speed and angle components of slalom skiing combined into one velocity vector. V-TYPE includes the stability and speed of the Syndicate S-series with the angle seeking aggression of the Syndicate A-series. The result is a refined superski capable of pushing limits while inspiring confidence. V-TYPE is built on an all new “V-Shaped” profile. The wider profile of a Syndicate S2 is located under the skier’s front foot, but quickly tapers into the narrow tail section of a Syndicate A3. V-TYPE’s narrower tail section generates amazing angle immediately out of the buoy, while the wider platform under the skier’s front foot provides unmatched speed and stability. The all new Velocity Rocker combines an increased tail rocker section with a clearly defined rocker flat spot located under the skier’s front foot. The increased tail rocker section allows the ski to naturally seek angle out of the turn and off of the wakes. The rocker flat spot provides the speed needed to reach maximum course width and a solid platform to balance on. The finishing touch to the 2015 V-TYPE is Stability Tuning. A strategically located stainless steel tip weight combined with an elastomer damping pad, dampens the natural frequency of the V-TYPE’s shovel for increased stability. With an effect similar to a slalom ski’s wing, Stability Tuning allows skier’s to fine tune tip pressure and harmonic resonance to maximize performance.

              The Syndicate A1 evolved, its design refined over two seasons of professional and amateur tournament domination. The Syndicate A2 employs all new Variable Concave Technology providing maximum speed and angle with safety to match. Traditional skis use one concave radius along their entire length. With the A2 this concave radius changes: larger radius and shallower concave depth in the tail for increased speed, smaller radius and deeper concave depth under the boots for maximum angle creation and back to a larger radius in the tip to keep the front of the ski up and moving without excess tip bite. Larger radii create lift fore and aft of the boot region and act as an Auto-Centering safety for the skier. When too far back at the finish of the turn, the increased tail lift helps to drive the ski tip down thereby allowing the skier to accelerate sooner off the buoy and stay in the pass. When the skier climbs over the front of the ski at the finish of the turn increased tip lift allows the ski to continue to move through the finish of the turn without stopping or overturning due to excess tip bite. Feel the difference on the water and ride what champions ride.

                Not quite a Course specific slalomer or an open-carve specific Free-skier? Like to ride the open water but also charge in a course when you can find one? Check out the 2013 HO Skis Cross-Over series, which includes the Superlite X, Coefficient X, Couture X, and Triumph. These high efficiency skis, featuring Speed Step Technology, are the all-in-one solution you've been missing. For more info check out http://hosports.com/waterskis.php Superlite X: The Syndicate Team was so intrigued by the Coefficient X design, HO decided to offer it in two different constructions. The Superlite X utilizes the polyvinylchloride foam core technology of the Syndicate Program skis and 90/10 Carbon/Fiberglass construction for the most advanced core technology available with just a touch of dampening. The standard Coefficient X is built out of the exact same molds as the SL, but has a more traditional 50/50 carbon/fiberglass construction and a polyurethane core. The single largest difference between the skis of the future and the skis of ten years ago is the amount of physical effort required by the skier to ride them. As water skiing evolves from a fight between boat and equipment to an efficient harmony between man and machine, so must the equipment. The Coefficient X introduces the first major departure from the traditional concave bottom ski of the last 70 years; Step Concave Technology. When a traditional ski moves through the water it drags along with it a layer of water molecules that stick to the bottom of the ski. In the science world, it is known as boundary layer theory. The Step Concave introduces a very small amount of turbulence into the concave, which interrupts the boundary layer, freeing the water molecules and thereby allowing the ski to move through the water with a decreased Coefficient of Drag. The result is a more efficient ski shape that minimizes the amount of physical effort required by the skier so he or she can enjoy longer more efficient ski rides. The Coefficient X also employs a 7% smaller bevel than the Syndicate A1. This helps to lift the ski out of the water for reduced drag and permits the proper amount of on water slide skiers need to dictate when, where and how aggressively they turn. The Coefficient X achieves its unparalleled stability by utilizing a significantly deeper concave, pintail geometry and 5-Stage rocker line. Each of these design elements holds the ski to the water surface, so the step concave and smaller bevel design can dictate the line between carve and slide for the ultimate slalom course of free skiing line. Each ski is handmade in Seattle, Washington.

                  The Syndicate A3 is more than a slight refinement of the highly acclaimed Syndicate A2, but an accelerated evolution of virtually every aspect of slalom ski technology. With legends Bob and Kris Lapoint teaming up with World Champion skier Will Asher and Dave Wingerter, the Syndicate A3 breaks the boundaries of what is possible on a tournament slalom ski. The A3's Automatic Angle Shape increases edge angle without waiting for skier lean. The Automatic Angle Bevel design allows the ski to stay on edge at the finish of the turn for maximum acceleration. The Auto-Centering Continuous Rocker allows for the cleanest, tightest turns in the industry. The A3's Speed Control Specific Design allows its skier to be one step ahead of today's boat speed control systems. The Superlite Construction employs a proprietary combination of aerospace carbon fiber and superlite core technology to make this ride light, responsive, and aggressive.

                      If you are one of those skiers trying to maximize performance out of your 10-year old shred stick you owe it to yourself to ride the all new, completely redesigned 2012 Triumph. The new Triumph uses a combination of Step Concave technology, Over-Sized shape and Syndicate thoroughbred linage to create the highest performance shaped ski in its class. As a traditional ski moves through the water it drags with it a thin layer of water molecules that cling to the ski’s bottom contributing significantly to ski drag. The Step Concave design uses a number of micro steps along the bottom concave which disrupt the water molecules, freeing them from the ski’s wetted surface resulting in reduced drag and less physically demanding ski rides. The high performance Syndicate inspired Hybrid Concave design, 50% carbon fiber construction and the peace of mind that each ski is hand built in the USA ensures the all new Triumph has no equal from dawn patrol sets to INT National Championships.
