Women’s Specific Freeride
Water skiers look at the world with a different set of eyes. Every lake, cove, river or puddle we see, we wonder, could we ski here? More often than not, access to the right boat, less than optimum water conditions and not having the right equipment for the job, stop us from exploring the possibility. HO Skis imagines a world where every body of water can be skied! The Freeride was created to do just that! The completely out-of-the-box design of the Freeride has rewritten the rules for water ski speeds, boats and water conditions. The water ski future is now wide open. Where will you take your skiing?
FREERIDE COMFORT DEFINED
The perfect, no nonsense, slip them on and enjoy the ride, water ski boots are back! New for 2016, the freeMAX is updated with a static lace in the lower lace zone, a footbed anchoring system and new lace management, so you can save your strength for carving up the lake.
CLEAN EDGE LOCATION
Why does only half of my Freeride have CleanEdge? Clean Edge is a revolutionary technology that reduces drag by 50% over traditional skis. Less drag equals more lift and it is the lift on the rear 50% of the Freeride’s running length that allows it to be skied at wake boards speeds with low drag, low spray and low effort. From under the skiers front foot, up through the forebody of the ski, the Freeride utilizes a traditional slalom ski edge design. This traditional edge has greater drag, less lift and as a result rides deeper in the water for the stable, traditional feel skiers covet.
FREERIDE SHARK FIN
The Freeride comes equipped with the surf-inspired Shark Fin. A deeper overall fin depth provides unmatched hold and drive in choppy water conditions. While the cutout on the back of the fin reduces overall surface area and fin length for quick, tight turns.
Traditional slalom course water skis have rounded-off bevels, mellow entry concaves and stiff flexes because they are designed to be slide around the buoy as much as carve. The Freeride is a carving machine! Clean Edge Technology, the steep-entry-concave, and Shark Fin provide unmatched edge hold, for pure carved turns. Similar to a snow ski, skiers are actually bending the Freeride into a more rockered shape to turn it. As a result, HO designed the Freeride Flex with a snow-ski-inspired flex pattern to allow effortless carves every time.
