The HO Carbon EVO features a lightweight, high-strength Paulownia wood core in a thinly sculpted ski body to provide enhanced flex for effortless turns. With the addition of CarboNetX, a layer of diagonally woven carbon fiber that stores and releases energy consistently throughout the ski, the Carbon EVO turns and accelerates like none-other. This ultra-responsive construction offers a true edge "gripping" feel like that of a snow ski. This is due to the combination of flex and rocker that allows the Carbon EVO to continually conform to the water surface.
Paulownia Wood Flex-Core: Lighter and more stable than its wood counterparts, this core has the ability to remain strong under high flex conditions. This hydrophobic wood core is fast-growing and takes less energy to process, giving the EVO added ecological benefits.
CarboNetX: Diagonally woven carbon fibers allow the ski to store and release energy consistently. This delivers a responsive feel and added durability while accounting for less than 1% of the ski's overall weight.
Surf Inspired Fish Shape with Clean Edge Tail: Lower aspect ratio with wider tail = ultra-efficient planing surface for performance at slower speeds and easier deep water starts. Clean Edge reduces drag by 50% compared to traditional ski edges.
Binding Spine: Minimized material underfoot maximizes torsional and longitudinal flex for enhanced turns.
SpeedSkin Base: Advanced laminar textured ski base for reduced ski drag and increased ski speed.
Hex Fin: The traditional 2D waterski fin model taken to the next level with a NACA Airfoil-inspired, 3-dimensional fin for more lift and lower drag. Acting like an airplane wing, this surf-style fin enhances ski versatility by increasing glide speed and turning properties.
X-Max Bindings: X-Max bindings with the Direct-Connect (DC) system eliminate the aluminum plate of traditional bindings and feature boot connection points underneath the rider's feet. This allows for more natural edging ability, better ski flex, and infinite fore/aft micro boot adjustment. TruFit last for an amazing out-of-the-box fit and marshmallow foam for the softest feel imaginable. Dual lace zones with low-drag bungee upper offer unmatched lace management and support. Footbed anchoring system features 50% more Velcro coverage. X-Max Binding sizes: XS(4-8), STD(7-11), XL(10-15).
