Product Description

This Slalom Water Tower Rack is all about bringing unparalleled quality and performance at reasonable prices. With a quick release system, polished finish, marine-grade bungee, and durable Aluminum construction, this rack has all the features you could want without the price tag. 

The all Aluminum design not only makes this water ski boat tower rack look great, but it also means it is built to withstand the harsh boating environment. Aluminum won't rust, so even if you're riding in salt water this rack will won't be affected. Additionally, the high strength of aluminum means it won't rattle or break when you are riding through choppy water or other boats' rollers. 

bullet-wakeboard-rack-quick-release-knob.jpgOne of the best features about the Slalom Water Ski Tower Rack is the ability to quickly release the main rack from the clamp. Each rack comes with an oversized knob that is used for the releasing the rack. Having a removable rack is beneficial for a couple of reasons. For instance, if you need to drop your tower down, you often need to remove the wakeboard rack in order to have your tower fold up properly. This typically requires tools, time, and frustration. With the quick release rack, you have the convenience of simply using a knob you can undo with your hands. Another great benefit of the quick release system is it makes storing your boat easier and safer. Often times, the wakeboard rack arms are the pieces that protrude the furthest from the boat, so by being able to remove the rack your free up more space. Additionally, as an extra precaution, removing your rack will prevent theft of your precious rack! 

IMPORTANT: This rack is sold as a single piece (not a set). Also, please be sure to specify which clamp size you need in the options. To clarify, do not select "none" unless you already have Krypt's brand-specific clamp. Clamps are included in the price of the rack. There is a small upcharge on clamp sizes greater than 2.5" and also on the clamps that are designated for a certain type of tower (see the drop down menu labelled "clamp size"). Please continue reading to learn more about clamp sizes and swivels.

krypt-tower-swivel-rack.jpgClamps and Swivels: Clamps and swivels accomplish the same task – they bind your rack to your boat’s tower. As mentioned above, they are a necessary part of a rack system. Clamps simply lock onto the metal tubing of your boat’s tower to secure the rack in place. Swivels are an add-on that provide the functionality of …well, swiveling. To be clear, only a clamp + rack are required for a functioning rack system (the swivel is an optional add-on). In their normal storage position, clamps have the rack and your boards pointing out away from your boat. In order to remove or place wakeboards into your rack, you have to reach to the outside of your boat. The swivel allows you to easily spin the entire rack around to face the inside of the boat. This makes it much easier to switch out your boards. Swivels are an expensive add-on but are a HUGE convenience. Once you've used them, you'll be hooked and will be frustrated with the static style clamp. 

Make sure you measure your wakeboard tower tubing size so you get the right clamp size (drop down menu above). The clamp is what goes around your wakeboard tower to hold it in place on the tower. There are many different tubing sizes for towers so make sure you pick out where you want your wakeboard rack and then measure using the procedure below. 

How do I figure out what Clamp Size I need?
Once you determine the perfect spot for your new wakeboard tower rack get a piece of string and loop it around the tower. Then measure how long the string was that went around the tower, this is your circumference. Use the table below and read across to find out what diameter tubing your tower is. The diameter is the size clamp you need. Select this size from the drop down menu above. We also have some alternative clamps available in the option menu, that are fitted for these towers:  Malibu Illusion X, Malibu Illusion XS, Centurian Evolution, Centurian Gladiator, Four Winns Arch Tower, Regal Power Tower and Sea Ray Arch towers -- if your tower is one of these models, choose that option in the clamp drop-down menu.

Q:
I measured the circumference of my boat tower, and it is 8.25", do you have a clamp that would fit this? The boat is a 2008 Crownline. The tower was purchased with the boat from the original owner.
A:
That tower circumference doesn't sound right -- we suggest you take the measurement once more time, to double check it. Measure your tower's circumference at the spot where you would want to place the slalom water ski rack, and then check our chart above to find the clamp you will need.
Q:
I had the tower circumference re-measured for my boat - it is 7 ½ inches circumference, do you make a coupling that fits?
A:
Yes, your boat tower would need the 2 3/8th clamp for this slalom water ski rack, based on that circumference.
Q:
I have three double boot slalom skis that I need the rack to hold. They each have double high wrap boots. How big are the forks, will this work?
A:
This boat tower rack for water skis holds up to two slalom or water skis, so for three sets of skis you will need an additional tower rack. The rack does not fit between the boots: one finger is on inside and the other is in front or rear, but it should work for your ski boots.
Q:
Does this tower rack fit the Malibu G3 Tower?
A:
We don't have special mount available for the Malibu G3 Tower, but a standard clamp fitting should work for the Malibu G3 Tower, available from the drop down menu. You need to first measure the circumference of your tower, at the location you want to mount the water ski rack, to find out what size clamp you will need. You can find the directions above on this page.
Q:
What clamp size do I need for an Axis 22 tower?
A:
This quick release rack has a 3" clamp that will fit your Axis 22 tower - just choice that size during checkout, from the drop-down options.
Q:
Will the rack mount on a horizontal tube? And do you actually have different size clamps or do you provide different shimes or spacers to adapt to smaller size tubing?
A:
Our Slalom-Water Ski rack is not guaranteed to work on a horizontal tube. It does fit a variety of towers, and can be angled to do so - so it *might* work on your bar. I am not sure what issues you may have; though if one of our clamp sizes could fit your bar, it might be fine, but we can't guarantee it would work.

As to the clamps, there are two basic clamp sizes (2" and 2.5"), and so if your tower's tubing is smaller than one of those, there are inserts that are included to size it down to fit a smaller tubing. I believe there may be a 3" clamp as well. So based on the circumference you need, we have a variety of sizes available in the options under "clamp size" based on what the inserts will fit. There are also some alternative clamps for very specific tower models available.
