The Graphite Vapor features a polyurethane core in the body of a Vapor. Polyurethane is damper foam which allows the ski to sit a little deeper in the water and makes for more progressive turns. Those skiing in a mix of open water and slalom courses favor the Graphite construction between speeds of 30-36 MPH.
The 2019 Vapor completely redefines what we previously thought possible on a ski. Additional width through the tail makes the ski sit more level and allows speed to be carried more consistently. The area directly under your front foot has an increased taper, which lets the ski move through the finish of the turn easier and allows the tip height to stay constant, increasing efficiency. The wide spot of the ski has been moved forward, giving you the ability to stand over your front foot with confidence. The outcome, a ski that carries speed and creates angle better than anything on the market.
