INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW RS AERO 41 T-BAR!! Read on to hear what the riders are saying about it....
I have been riding sit down hydrofoils for a long time (28.5
years). I rode my first one at the beginning of the summer 1990. I was
hooked. I never had such an amazing feeling of flight and freedom as what
the hydrofoil brings. Over the years, as the equipment got better, I have
felt similar feelings and rekindlings of my love for hydrofoiling. The G-38
was another one of those moments. It was good, but more was to come.
I now have the best feeling I have ever had from a new T-bar. It took us
about 4 months, but collectively between the riders and sky ski, we have
finally done it. This 41" T-bar is perfect. I am going higher than I
ever have, and am now in the running at big air contests. Me, the trick
guy. I go big now! LOL that, and I feel confident I can cross any wake at
any speed, tall or small, turbulent, cold water, and they all will let me
pass with 0 glitch on this new design. It's stable, comfortable, and very
ride-able. I guarantee this will be your favorite ride. You just have to
try it. Smile like you have never smiled while riding a Sky Ski.
My Sky Ski RS Aero 41 is without a doubt the smoothest foil
I have ever ridden. There is no more shudder through the wakes, and
virtually no drag. Bigger air with less effort. The ease of adjusting the
t-bar length from 39" to 41" to match your riding preference is a
great innovation. Sky Ski hit it out of the park with this one!
"Best T-bar I've ever ridden! But don't quote me on
that, because I'll deny ever saying it".
SkySki is now in a league of their own with this new RS Aero
T-bar. I was riding the Answer 38 t-bar for the last 7 years and that is a
great t-bar, but since I got the new Aero t-bar it has been a total game
changer for me. The air I am getting now is so big I probably should have
an oxygen mask and the landings are super smooth and soft. There is
absolutely no drag at all and that makes all the difference. If you are
looking to take your riding to the next level this is the bar for you!
The Aero t-bar cuts through the water like nothing. No drag
compared to other bars. The ride was outstanding in all aspects. I would
recommend this t-bar for someone who wants a good clean bar to get to the
next level of riding.
Just wanted to say, after riding the new & improved AERO
T bar, I’m very impressed with the way this thing rides! Zero glitching or
drag. I rode it in both the 39 & 41 lengths and had no problems
adjusting. Most of my tricks felt bigger and smoother. Thank you for
letting me try it out. You guys are on to something great with this new
The Aero t-bar rides so smoothly thru the wakes, and there
is no drag at all. It also recovers so quickly on landings, much easier to
ride away from bad landings. Being able to ride it at 39" or 41"
is a really cool feature too.
Read on for the details on the RS Aero 41 T-Bar.....
Confessions of a crash test dummy: We have been working on this design /
shape of strut for literally 20 years. We still have a few of the early
prototypes we made back in the late nineties with Mike Murphy heading up Sky
Ski. And I can't tell you how many different versions we've brought to the
lake since Don has been at the helm. Until now, we just hadn't been able to
make it work. Well I can tell you for sure, it was worth the wait! The RS
Aero-41 IS the ultimate in high end t-bars. - Jake Kinnison
machined from super strong & lightweight 7000 series aluminum, this t-bar
features the longest strut Sky Ski has ever made. It can be ridden at either
39” or 41”. And that's just the beginning, the shape of the strut is a true
"Aero" hydrodynamic shape, and has absolutely NO drag at all. The
leading edge of the strut is extremely dull & blunt, while the back half
of the strut is cupped. This all new shape reduces drag, and makes it less
susceptible to riding differently in different bodies & temperatures of
water. Also features a sleek, streamlined fuselage with a reduced keel, 5
hole front fuselage and a 4 hole rear fuselage for more adjustment moving
your rear wing.
The reduced keel provides strength & tracking while
reducing drag, and it allows the foil to "pierce" the water on
re-entry into the water so you get softer landings and a quicker reflight
Paired up with the Apex front & Aero rear wings this
foil is geared for ultra smooth, hard cuts, huge air and butter soft
