About the DV8 Waterski | 2021

What Connelly Says:

THE MOST CUSTOMIZABLE SKI EVER



Introducing, a flagship ski brand new for 2021, the DV8. Featuring patent pending VersaTail technology, this is the most customizable ski ever. Welcome to a new dimension in fine tuning.

Throughout the years, brands have been on a quest to create a ski that checks all the boxes. Yet because skiers have varying styles and skill sets, the one-shape-fits-all approach doesn’t always pan out for everyone.

With the DV8 and VersaTail, you choose how your ski rides and reacts.

2021 DV8 BINDING PLACEMENT AND FIN SPECIFICATIONS



The factory fin settings are 2.520” deep, with a length of 6.840”, and 0.745” distance from the tail of the ski using VT tail piece (see diagram). A more accurate and repeatable method for measuring DFT is by removing Versatail and measuring from the Versatail mounting serface to the end of the fin. In this case the DFT is 0.070”. A caliper is the best way to check these measurements. Fin tuning instructions, an Allen wrench and warranty information are included with your ski. The binding placement for each size ski is listed below. This is measured from the heel of the front binding to the tail of the ski.​

The adjustable aluminum foil on your DV8 is mounted by the factory at 7 degrees, upside down, with the two mounting screws above the surface of the wing.

FIN SETTING ADVICE FROM JOEL

“My advice would be for skiers to begin with the stock settings before experimenting with both advanced option one and two. Option one is slightly more stable, however, option two will require less movement to initiate the turn. If you cannot decide between option one and two, remember the skis will work extremely well with either setting.

Generally, elite skiers run more surface area and will prefer to run their fin back/deep/short (option1) or forward/shallow/long (option 2).

It's possible to 'tweak' your fin for years and never truly test each end of the spectrum, however, this chart should significantly reduce the time and knowledge required to find settings which match your skiing.”
