2019 Gear

radarSkis2019It’s that time of the year again where all the ski manufacturers have released their 2019 product lines. A lot of us take this as an opportunity to test some new sticks now that the water is still warm and conditions are still nice.

Over the years we have found it easier to evaluate and adjust to new equipment while we’re still in ski shape at the end of the season rather than to start in the spring on a ski that’s new to us.

Most of the new slalom skis for 2019 perform very well. We have seen some of our students have great success on the new Radar Vapor Pro Build.

Radar has made some significant changes over the 2018 model including a new core material, lighter and stronger carbon composites and a new rocker pattern in the tail. They also moved the wide spot of the ski forward while tapering the area underfoot and providing a nice wide tail which results in a very stable ski that moves through the turn with ease and gets beautiful angle and speed. We have noticed the biggest improvements on the toe-side turn. Check out their website for more information.

Contact us to book some ski time to try your new equipment, improve your technique or just enjoy the warm Florida winter with us.
