The exact same ski as the MV-38 the MV-40 has a very similar ride as the MV-38. The only difference in the foil is the T-bar being 40″ long instead of 38″. The extra two inches makes take off more progressive than the MV-38. Made from 7050 T7 aluminum its strong, rigid, and durable. Its not a “bigger air” T-bar than the MV-38, just a different feel. It Has a more relaxed transition from horizontal, to vertical giving the rider more time to “load up” for take off. As a complete unit it comes with all of the bells and whistles that the Complete MV-38 comes with (carbon ski blank, Outlaw tower with g-10 suspension, Area 51/UFO wing set, complete binding set w/ ankle leashes, and the security of the constrictor seat belt) so you know your riding the best gear money can buy.
