The Graviton packs a lot of punch into a small package. We’ve built the perfect ski for both hand and toe tricks by utilizing dual insert placement. This allows you to stand centered on your ski and makes it easy to edge continuously through the top of the wake. Our Graviton pops clean off the wake, lands soft and moves easily from one trick to another.

PVC has been an industry staple for well over a decade. It is trusted and proven as a core because of its long-lasting strength and quick response.
The 2078 rocker profile has a slightly shorter flat spot and a little more rocker in the tip and tail. The shorter flat spot allows the glide speed of the ski to be greater which in turn gives the skier a sensation of a lighter ski. The reduced contact to the water also yields faster surface turns in both hand and toe tricks. More rocker in the tip and tail reduces suction ultimately leading to a cleaner pop off the wake every time.
The new sidecut lines of the Graviton have one smooth radius from the center section of the ski through the tip and tail. This gives the ski a smoother carve to the wake after you land a trick and lets the ski roll on an edge easier. allowing you to travel back to the wake faster. The width of the ski has been made slightly narrower. making it nimbler from edge to edge. This also allows the ski to sit deeper in the water. which makes landings easier and forces the line tighter so you can move from trick to trick quicker.
Center Mount Inserts
We have added 2 binding locations for the front boot. The forward location is for hand tricks only. It moves both feet to the center of the ski instead of having the front boot in the middle of the ski and the back foot closer to the tail. This allows the skier to stand perfectly over the ski without excessive forward pressure. Now cutting to the wake from the forward or reverse position is equally simple. The front boot location puts the ankle bone on the center line of the ski with a traditional half inch adjustment either way. The neutral insert location is best for toe tricks as it allows the ski to swivel on a central balance point when a back foot is not located on the ski.
The X contours found in the tip and tail ensure the ski flexes in these zones when load is applied. When you load the ski for a body over. toe step or flip it is much like loading a trampoline mat; this stored energy translates into easier. more consistent pop off the water. FleX Tech is a means to help keep you centered over the ski when you load the line. Skiers have noticed how easy it is to go straight up off the water reducing costly unwanted travel.
