HO TX with XMax Binding & ART 2017
TX W/ XMAX ART
WIDERIDE CROSSOVER SKI
The ultimate in cross-over ski technology, skis designed to deliver maximum performance with unparalleled efficiency. The TX marries the high performance design of a Syndicate ski, with the ultra-efficient Clean Edge Technology of a Freeride ski, all in a wide-ride version for stability and less physical effort. The HO design team began with a record-breaking Syndicate ski 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 features allows the water to release cleanly 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%.
COMFORT & FIT, CROSSOVER PERFECTION
The ultimate cross-over boot just got better with a 2cm taller cuff height for more support and control while the marshmallow foam liner deploys skier driven comfort. A reshaped toe pattern, new tongue curve and static lace in the lower lace zone, locks down the skiers foot for precision control. The removable footbed anchoring system makes mounting quick and simple while the Direct Connect Mounting System offers unmatched natural edge angle, a short flex footprint and micro adjustment. All combined, we feel this is the strongest boot on the market to suit crossover skiing perfectly.
ADJUSTABLE REAR TOE WITH DIRECT CONNECT
HO Skis has updated the Adjustable Rear Toe by adding a Marshmallow Foam Liner for amazing out-of-the-box comfort and a Footbed Anchoring system, giving 50% more Velcro coverage & Velcro to aluminum plate riveting. The ART’s Direct Connect mounting gives the skier Natural Edge Angle for precise edge control & improved balance, the industry’s shortest Flex Footprint which virtually eliminates ski flex dead spots, and allows for Micro Adjustment for infinite fore/aft and 7* of rotational adjustment. The Rear Toe is also available in the aluminum plated version to fit traditional insert patterns.
