Traditional soft rubber or EVA boots cramp feet and deliver very little control to your ski. Full plastic chassis boots can be overbearing and generally have ski altering mechanisms that add weight and reduce ski flex. In Vapor boots, our design with Pro-fit chassis and synthetic leather outer shell is the best of both worlds. The chassis offers immediate response and greater edge hold. The soft outer is forgiving and allows extra movement without disrupting the ski’s path. Our competition boot is a true hybrid of all that is needed in a great boot. You will find an easy transition onto Vapors. They’re the best fitting, most comfortable boots in tournament skiing.
Our exclusive partnership with Intuition gives you a heat moldable, lightweight, pre-formed fit like no other. Just heat our liners to 120 degrees Celsius at an Authorized Retailer for a custom fit unique to your foot. This custom fit is the standard for any type of performance footwear. Vapor liners were designed specifically for waterski use. Support where it’s wanted and flexibility where it’s needed.
The Pro Fit Chassis is an asymmetrical race-ready fit designed to secure the foot into a solid position, creating a seamless connection to the ski as if it were an extension of you. It’s the optimal combination of support, stability and balance. Smooth flexibility from the articulating cuff plates gives easy knee movement fore and aft while the internal forefoot stabilizer plates send feedback into the ski.
The Vapor boot is still the only water ski boot that is double lasted to deliver a perfect connection between your foot, the liner and the shell. A last is the aluminum cavity we build to replicate the foot geometry, which determines the shape, size and overall fit of your footwear. Radar Ski Boots develop ski specific lasts designed around the way a skier stands one foot in front of the other. Double lasting means we first form the liner on a last for correct fit and stance of a skier’s foot and leg. The second last shapes the shell and creates the perfect fit between both components. This creates a boot free from hot spots or dead air space.
Vapor boots come with our signature insoles of¬fering heel and arch support from the ergonomic orthotic heel cup and shank. Our custom design holds your foot in place during wake crossings and fast moving edge changes.
