Vault Modello Core
THE FOUNDATION TO WAKEBOARDING RECENTLY SHED SOME WEIGHT AND ADDED MORE FEEL FOR THE WATER.
There are two ways to ride a wakeboard. 1. Edging and driving through the wake where your speed from attack angle and pop will determine your lift. This requires a higher skill level because you’re dealing with different forces from the pull of the line and the timing of your jump. 2. Riding a thinner profiled board with more top water speed and less line load. This style creates a pendulum using more of a natural centripetal approach with less effort both on and leaving the water. Last year we put the Vault on a diet and took almost 20% of the weight out. Now a rider has more feedback with the water, less swing weight in the air, and easier transitioned turns. For over 20 years we have been designing boards recognizing that your shoulders and hips are not always parallel in wakeboarding. Your body is crossed up riding toe-side, and more inline riding heel-side, and every aspect of the Vault takes this into consideration for the proper foundation to your riding.

An exaggerated rocker line with a later arc and a higher degree provides a more straight up explosive pop. This style of rocker creates more of an instant buck off the wake (combine that with our Blackout Technology to experience everything a wake has to offer), for riders that are behind a big boat wake. Wakeboarders riding behind smaller wakes will still feel like they are getting a solid kick as well.
A combination of the traits of 3-Stage and Continuous rocker lines. Designed for a high-end rider that, depending on how they edge into the wake, the rocker will dictate what style of snap they will have. Also, for a mid-level rider that isn’t sure what style of hangtime they are looking for.
An earlier arc with a mellower degree will have a smoother, more consistent glide up the wake. A rider will be able to carry more speed up the transition and land tricks farther out into the flats. Not quite the straight up snap of its counterpart, but they’ll have a faster, more predictable, effortless takeoff.
Instant energy takes place the second the tip of the board hits the wake. This allows a quicker way to generate lift off the transition as energy takes place sooner with a super firm snap off the wake. For riders that can handle the added kick. We rate all our boards from 1 to 10.
Doesn’t have the radioactive amplitude of instant energy, or the postponed kick of its stored counterpart. Neutral energy prefers to sit quietly in the middle of takeoff purgatory – not too quick, not too late. Nothing wrong with riding sans stigma.
Created for a rider who approaches and leaves the wake the way a snowboarder would a kicker or a skater would an ollie. The delay in the energy means the rider is given more time to generate the full lift from the power building from the tip all the way to the tail of the board. If riders don’t have that snow / skate timing off the wake – no problem – they will just have a mellower lift. A construction that’s easier on your body.
