Sizing Guides
The HO Syndicate VTX is the premier HO model, taking everything that has been developed over the past decade, pooling the best parts and integrating them to develop the VTX. From the core outwards, we start with HO's superlite construction, their traditional PVC and Carbon infused core. The shape and outer tech is where it combines new and old, with a single radius rocker, your cut across your outer edge becomes more progressive, while retaining forgiveness. Taking from the A1 the VTX adds a larger sweet spot, to provide a greater balance between mobility and control, while a higher volume concave creates more direction and carries more speed through to the buoy. Now with a 45 degree bevel your transitions from edge to edge have become even easier, with the turning feel of a narrower ski, but with more speed and stability that you get out of a wider body design. Topping off the VTX is technology the HO have pioneered over the last few years, and updated carbon fibre speed skin and clean edge technology helps to reduce drag, while also cutting weight from the ski as the vibration dampening system helps to remove any chatter that finds its way through the ski.


  • Single Radius Rocker - A singular long continuous rockerline provides a considerably more stable and forgiving feel in transitions from edge to edge in the build up to the apex of your cut, while without a flat spot, there is no longer a pivot point allowing for reduced sticking points and allows for consistency and comfort both on your on and offside


  • Flex Rating(1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – 8/10
  • Binding Spine - Less material underfoot maximises the amount of flex torsionally and longitudinally giving greater angle and bend into the turns


  • PVC Core - A tried and true core material that has proved itself on the top end ski's for years, a high quality material that is lighter and stiffer than it's PU counterpart creating greater feel and response in your ski.


  • Carbon Laminates – A traditional carbon laminate layer that is tried and proven, adds a snappy element to your ski, driving response through your cut and turns


  • A1 Width Profile - A larger sweet spot from the start of your front foot forward allows for balance without sacraficing manoeuvrability
  • Clean Edge Tail - a tapered edge from the bottom of your back foot to the tail, reduces the ski's drag by around 50%
  • 46 Degree Bevel Angle - A higher degree edge bevel gives you the benefit to turn like a narrow ski, but maintain speed and the stability of a traditionally wider style
  • Flexbody Construction - A reduced profile ski body, combined with the overall construction gives greater torsional stability and greater response comparative to load under stress


  • High Volume Concave - Increased depth in the front section of the ski, creates more lift and support, while also adding greater volume, this in turn translates to greater push on the outer bevels of the ski and an easier ability to pivot into your edges and keep speed

Other Features:

  • Stability Tuning/Vibration Dampening System - An added weight strategically placed on the tip of the ski with a rubber dampening pad underneath, settles the vibration of the ski and creates more stability
  • Carbon Fiber Speed Skin - A textured base which reduces drag, naturally increasing speed, while also reducing ski weight by 20%
