Our boot designs have always been focused on maintaining a solid line of communication between skier and ski, while never compromising on fit. Our latest material technologies, Carbitex and Reactive Wrap, have augmented this ethos, which has become synonymous with our line of footwear. The result is a remarkably improved line in both form and function. We have never been more excited for you to hit the water with a new pair of our boots and feel the difference.
Carbitex redefines technical performance in ski boots. Radar partnered with the American manufacturer, Carbitex, to create the future of high performance slalom footwear. A proprietary wet infusion process is utilized to penetrate carbon fiber with a multiple polymer system, optimizing the mechanical properties of this “CX6” composite. The resulting Carbitex Vapor boot is more responsive than a hard shell chassis due to the material’s low elongation and the soft shell creates an unparalleled fit. The CX6 panels on the boot are oriented on axis to maximize response independently from the cuff, forefoot, and toe box. We have continued to progress the limits of materials technology to create the ultimate connection with your ski.
An injected structural skeleton fused onto a base textile layer allows us to dictate the location and magnitude of energy that is driven into the ski from your lower appendages and improve the boots fit all at the same time. Level 2 on the Profile is going to be a bit more responsive, while the Level 1 Reactive Wrap on a Vector or Lyric will extend your time on the water with just the right amount of give and take.
Vapor Boot Key Features:
Pro Fit Chassis
The First Last To Last construction
True Fit Insoles
Optional Leverage Enhancement
Pro Fit Chasis
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.
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 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 footin 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 offering 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.
