Connelly GT - 2018
Superior performance and control at high speeds. This year the GT features additional carbon tape from the heel of the front boot to the tip of the ski for extra support in the deepest turns, and a micro tweak to the tail rocker keeps the ski at perfect balance for a cleaner finish. The variable bevel transitions from sharp to round as you move toward the tail, setting the ski deeper in the water in the turn. This provides more speed into the turn without blowing out the tail.
• TOP GRAPHIC SHEET
Provides a great looking top and graphics and a layer of UV protection, increasing the water skis longevity.
• FIBER REINFORCED LAYER
The reinforcing fibers used in the water ski provide the strength and flex required to get you down the lake, whether you are just cruising or shredding buoys in a slalom course. We use different types, amounts and orientations of carbon and/or fiberglass depending on the skis intended use. Our high performance skis use carbon to provide the precision, control and explosive acceleration demanded by the high end skier. Our recreational skis use fiberglass for a more forgiving, less demanding ride, for those just looking to get out there and have a good time.
• BINDING REINFORCEMENT
At the heart of the ski is the core. Our upper end skis use a lightweight PVC core to provide the ultimate in weight reduction and resilience. Our recreational skis use polyurethane cores, in different densities depending on desired performance, to provide a stable and durable foundation for the ski.
• MORE UNIQUE FIBER REINFORCEMENT
• WRAPPED FIBERGLASS
• SKI BASE
Not only does the base hold the graphic layer and provide UV protection, it also provides a specific texture to help the ski perform at its best on the water at its intended level, reducing
drag and directing flow where it needs to go.

V-Tech is a step base technology that regulates the flow of water along the base of the ski.
V-shaped steps run through the tunnel releasing water from the base in these key spots. This decreases the wetted surface area increasing efficient water flow from the front bindings to the fin. The end result is a more maneuverable ski with less drag.
Our shapes are designed to be the perfect platform for your style of skiing. We achieve this by tuning the ski's width, flex, rocker and bottom features to perform their absolute best within the speed range you ski.
Narrow skis sit deeper in the water giving you more contact and control with less surface area. Less width also makes edge transitions faster, requiring less leverage, allowing quick turns, high angles and explosive speed. Our top end skis are designed for maximum performance at high speeds.
