Difference between the HO CX and TX ?

Mo2204Mo2204 Posts: 28 Baller
Hey Ballers !

Since I was deciding on a ski lately I looked at both of the HO crossover models. So my question would be : what is the difference between the CX and the TX ?

I guess I am just to stupid to find out myself.

Thanks in advance ^^

    I have no clue.

    But WOW it's cool how many people are looking to buy a "first ski" right now!

    I think the CX is a traditional narrower ski while the TX is more of a wide ride ski probably designed for slower speeds. I would guess that the TX evolved from the HO triumph which was a pretty popular intermediate ski.
    Swervin'... It's what I do

    The TX is wider, easier to get up on, can be ridden slower, etc.

    It is cool to see people supporting the industry. Some wakeboarders in my group of friends are starting to convert. What's old is new again.

    Thanks for the answers I guess I will stay with my decision of buying the CX if the Tx is just wider.

    It really seems like a lot of people are getting into slalom these days but that is not too strange since it is a beautiful sport ^^ @Porkfight I always prefered to ride a slalom ski over combo ski or the wakeboard although a lot of people tried to convince me to go for wakeboarding

    My friend bought the CX superlite and is happy with it.

    One of my ski buds jumped on a '14 Superlite TX in June. He's a mens 8 skier at 30mph. He picked up almost two full passes. Was averaging 4 to 5 buoys at -28 on the Monza he'd been on for about 10 years. After 2 months on the SL TX he's consistently going to deep -35. Runs 35 about 30% of the time. I'd say it's a great ski. I checked out a SL CX which is more similar to the traditional A3 shape for higher speeds and it is also a very nice ski.

    The HO website does a good job explaining the two skis.

    Taking a quick look, the TX is an oversize ski where the CX looks more like a toned down version of their higher-end skis.
