2024 D3 Ion 2 Slalom w/ T Factor Binding & Contour RTP

D3 Skis Ion-2 Blank Slalom Ski

The ION 2 takes its heritage from the highly successful ION and ION S slalom skis. The incredible performance of the ION 2 is the result of the experience and success of our Team D3 skiers in professional and World Championship tournaments. The ION 2 flex and rocker comes directly from the skis ridden by our pro skiers. The ION 2 blends the tip flex from the ION S and the tail flex from the ION. This combination results in a ski that slows well and engages into the turn, and at the same time provides optimal acceleration and cross course speed into that next buoy. The same natural balance and equilibrium of a traditional shaped slalom ski has been maintained in the ION 2. The ski is best ridden with a balanced stance over the middle of the ski. The ION sweet spot is replicated in the ION 2 along with the stability and symmetry that all skiers have come to expect from our previous ION slalom skis. The ski is extremely predictable into the edge change, through a smooth carving turn, and builds angle and unparalleled cross-course speed.

FEATURES: Ski Profile - Traditional Ski Shape - best ridden in a balanced stance over the middle of the ski - the ION 2 is slightly wider than the competition's traditional shaped skis. | Tunnel Concave - Shallowest of the D3 slalom line which promotes good cross-course speed. | Rocker Profile - Lowest rocker in the D3 slalom line - ski attitude more level with less tip rise. | Tail Shape - Widest tail in the D3 slalom line. | Bevels - Soft tail bevel allows the tail of the ski to move throughout the turn in perfect balance with the tip. | All Levels - Designed for skiers of all levels and at the same time exceeds the expectations of the most demanding skiers. | Accuset Fin Block - Accurate, three-point set screws for easy fin adjustments and laser aligned fin position. | Machined Screw Inserts - Accommodates D3, Reflex and most current binding hole patterns. | All inserts are set in hard PVC anchor blocks for trouble free screw retention.

SIZES: 64" (up to 135 lb) , 65" (130 - 160 lbs) , 66" (145 - 175 lbs) , 67" (175 - 200 lbs) , 68" (200 lbs and up) - sizing based on skiing at 36 mph
If you ski 34 mph, drop the weight by 5 lbs. If you ski 32 mph, drop the weight by 10 lbs. If you ski 30 mph, drop the weight by 15 lbs. This is guideline sizing based on average ability.


D3 T Factor Slalom Waterski Binding - Front

The T-Factor is newest addition to the D3 binding family. Like the Leverage the T-Factor delivers comfort and performance on a traditional EVA-rubber binding platform. WEIGHT: (each) - 2lb 10oz (medium)
The T-Factor is the result of more than a year of R&D; and testing. The T-Factor features a smooth micro-fiber overlay blended with a rubber insert creating firm lateral support for superior edge control. "Smooth" was a frequent comment from the skiers testing the T-Factor. This smooth, forgiving ride is a result of the soft forward and aft flex the T-Factor delivers. With high-tech bungee in the upper cuff lace location and smaller, softer bungee in the lower lace location the T-Factor is comfortable and a breeze to put on. The T-Factor rear boot comes standard with the new D3 UNI-Plate which accommodates both D3 and HO insert patterns.

One of the biggest differences with the T-Factors is that they are a front-lace binding. This enhances the binding in two ways: It allows for a much wider space to open up when putting the binding on, and it allows for a more natural, uninhibited flex to the rear from the apex of the turn into the acceleration out of the turn. Laces in the back make the rear flex stiffer, and this can cause the tip of the ski to rise out of the turns. With the rear-lace binding the flex allows for some shift in body weight out of the finish of the turns, so even if you do fall slightly back before acceleration the tip of the ski will not rise out of the water. With the whole ski in the water there is no delay in acceleration, and the edge control of the ski is more secure.

FEATURES: EVA- rubber blend toe. | 100% high-elasticity rubber heel. | Micro Fiber hybrid overlay with. | 100% rubber insert featuring flex vents in the heel area. | Bungee lace system upper and lower. | New D3 UNI plate for rear binding fits both HO, Radar and D3 ski insert patterns.


D3 Contour RTP

The Contour Rear Toe Plate features a thick, padded foot-bed. This foot-bed has ridges and is shaped to give the foot the ultimate in support. The EVA-Rubber blended toe strap holds the foot firmly in place and contours comfortably to the shape of the foot. An all-rubber overlay stretches over the top of the toe-rubber to keep it from sliding out in even the most extreme situations. Used by top pro skiers around the world the Contour RTP is mounted to a strong 6061 aluminum plate and has slotted holes allowing the plate to be pivoted to each skier's personal preference. Sizes - XS (3.5-4.5) , S (5-7) , M (7.5-9) , L (9.5-11) , XL (11.5-14)
