The Radar Vapor Lithium is the epitome of tried and tested, having the same incredible Vapor shape that is the culmination of years of waterski development for the perfect balance of control, stability, and tightness in turns and speed control, but with a PVC core that has stood the test of time as one of the best performance cores in waterskiing. This time, the evolution of the Vapor adds greater control and comfort in your movements by maintaining a steeper concave entry, increased rocker taper, which enhances the size of the flat spot underfoot, and a greater radius through the nose and tail of the ski. To increase the consistency through turns and create tighter turning capabilities, the Vapor now has a reduced thickness in the sidewall, keeping the ski more connected in the turn, while the edge angle and a sharper bevel through the nose, mellowing through the tail keep the ski where you need it in the turn, stopping tail blowouts while maintaining the balance and drive to help you finish through the turn. The final aspect of this ski is the speed control, keeping the naturally fast Vapor staple that it has become known for, but with the updated sharper edge bevel now allowing the ski to decelerate better into the turns for greater control throughout the entire ski performance from the start to end of the turn. The Vapor Lithium's core changes to a PVC foam, still with carbon laminates. The PVC core is still a highly reactive foam that reacts 10 times faster than its PU graphite counterpart, which, combined with the carbon laminate, gives you plenty of snap out of the turn and generates hold across the wash, but topped with spread toe carbon to finish off that snap and response in the turns. Finish all this with Radar's Race base construction and endure tip and tail, and you have one of the fastest skis available with one clean turn.
- Continuous Rocker - A continuous rockerline through the tip and tail of the ski 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 off-side
- Increased Flat Spot - Increased the sweet spot from your front foot to halfway down the back, providing a bigger sweet spot, a more predictable feel from your ski, providing greater drive through the ski, and increased hold and angle in turns.
- Increased Rocker Taper - by increasing the taper of the rocker through the nose and tail of the ski, the flat spot through the centre of the ski is artificially increased, allowing you to have more feel and connection underfoot, allowing you and the ski to move better as a whole rather than two separate parts, ultimately allowing you to feel more consistent in your actions.
- Flex Rating(1=Soft, 10=Stiff) - 9/10
- PVC Core - A tried and true core material that has proved itself on the top end ski's for years, a high-quality material lighter and stiffer than its PU counterpart creating a greater feel and response in your ski.
- Spread Toe Carbon - A traditional carbon laminate layer that is tried and proven adds a snappy element to your ski, driving response through your cut and turns
- Race Base - A base laminate that increases speed and allows it to be carried into the turn
- Bio Resin - It's good for the environment
- Sharper Hybrid Bevel - This sharp bevel from your foot forward allows for greater ability to lean into turns, creating more angle while providing greater control and deceleration into the turn and a tighter radius at the top of your cut. Blending to a softer bevel through the tail allows the ski to maintain balance, allowing you to maintain a turn angle through the whole turn and into the centreline.
- Wider For-body - an increase in width in the for-body of the ski creates stability and allows you to stand over the top of the ski with more confidence before heading into your turns.
Increased Tail Taper - adding to the wider forbody of the ski, the increased taper gives you a more comprehensive platform through more of the sweet spot in the ski, creating stability and control underfoot, but also allows the ski to have more tip pressure, meaning less work to get the ski over and around into turns and smoother tighter turns.
- Reduced Tail Width - Allows the ski to drift in the tail mid-turn and stay planted all at once, giving you more angle in your turn.
- Reduced Sidewall Thickness - the reduced sidewall density helps keep the ski agile and your turns tighter.
- Full Edge-to-Edge Concave - a full concave throughout the whole width of the ski creates a fluid motion and greatly supports your cut, allowing you to focus on where you want to place the ski.
- Depth - Increased depth throughout the entire length 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 a tighter turn radius
- Enduro Tip & Tail - An ABS capping that provides greater grip and a cleaner water release off the ski while being incredibly durable

Return fees will not be processed if we have made a mistake in an order or you wish to process a successful warranty.
