Adaptive Water SKi Equipment:

Competitive Skis and Cages

Slalom Skis

Slalom skis are similar to beginner skis but are not as wide, typically in the 10-13 inch range. These skis have many of the qualities of their stand-up counterparts and incorporate deeper concaves, performance-enhancing edge designs, and adjustable “competition” type fins.

Trick Skis

Trick Skis are designed to perform maneuvers such as 360-degree spins and other “tricks” both on the surface of the water and in the air. For tournament use, a trick ski is defined as a ski that is no wider than 30% of its length. Although trick skis specific for the sit down skier are available, many skiers use wake boards and kneeboards as trick skis. Sometimes a wake board or knee board will need to be cut narrower to make it “legal” for tournament use but will be fine for the recreational skier. Mounting a cage on a wake board or kneeboard will require a modification to the cage or necessitate special brackets (clamps) to secure the cage to the board.

Jump Skis

Jump Skis are specialty skis built for the competition orientated jump skier. Typically, the jump ski will have a flat bottom and ninety degree edges. Although built for the competitive jumper, these skis are very stable and can be used by the beginner skier.

Cages & Accessories

Riser & Foot Plates

Riser Plates can be used to raise a cage or footplate up/off of the deck of the ski. Riser plates are useful for programs that have a limited number of cages by making shorter cages ski taller or by raising footplates to fit shorter skiers in taller cages.

 

Riser Plates are also useful for the intermediate/advanced skier that wants to get higher off the surface of the water to allow for higher edge angles (increased edging/tipping)

Cages

Most sit skis can be purchased with a variety of cage height and width combinations. Although not standardized, most manufacturers have elected to utilize the same base pattern as that of the original Kan Skis allowing cages from different manufactures to be placed on a variety of sit skis.

CR Wakebar

The CR Wakebar is a harness/pully block system with an automatic quick release. Half the strength is required to hold the handle, the other half is well distributed by the harness. The tow system is equipped with an automatic quick release, releasing the connection to the harness immediately once the skier releases or loses the handle.
