2017 Radar Butter Knife Water Ski

Radar's easiest out-of-the-water, most stable platform to date. With the most surface area in its class, it’s guaranteed to instill confidence and make you a better skier than other open water skis on the market. No gimmicks, just great skiing! The Bent Vee series of slalom skis was created to take you anywhere any time at any ability level. It’s the easiest, smoothest ski Radar created with the least amount of drag you could ever imagine. The fundamental aspects such as bevel and rocker line are that of a Vapor. So you ski assured, knowing you’re riding a high performance rip stick.

Surface area was added behind your feet for lift on deep-water starts and stability when riding straight ahead. The widest point in the tip is much further forward than a conventional slalom ski, giving the feeling of a longer wheelbase which gives you stability. When the ski is turned on edge, it creates an automatic turn based on the inside radius sidecut. The ski just pivots right through both on and off side turns without effort.

Every ski design actually has 2 rocker lines. The first one is down the center of the concave, which, in Bent Vee, is identical to the Vapor. The second rocker line is on the bevels (the part that touches a table), and we’ve made it flat and stable for consistent water flow in any conditions. By altering the sidewall thickness Radar can create a second “bevel rocker” suitable for the intended purpose which levels the attitude of the ski in the water. In this case, Radar made a free skier’s perfect rocker.

The Bent Vee design also innovates with a FLAT SPOT across the middle of the concave. By putting a straight line across the deepest part of the concave, it shallows the depth of the base design, creating lift from the loss of depth and the flat line itself. That lift relieves line tension, making it easier for a skier to get up, hang on and get acceleration while cutting. To make sure the ski has plenty of grip and edging stability, GRIP RAILS were added to the base to hold the ski in an efficient edging position.
