ProWatercraftRacing.com sponsons installed on our SX-R 1100.

Front sponsons may seem daunting — drilling lots of holes in your ski seems scary; but we can assure you that you won’t regret putting the right pair on. Front sponsons give your ski more stability (essentially making it a little wider) and the proper shape of sponson can improve the cornering ability in turns — letting you go faster and push your ski to the edge. Every sponson is different, many of which have advantages, but also come with some quirks. The MotorActionMedia.com team has tried several brands of front sponsons, but the ProWatercraftRacing.com front sponson has been the best we have tried so far, and has been installed on all of our race machines. The ProWatercraftRacing.com sponsons give you all of the advantages of a front sponson without some of the quirks that other brands may have. Stability and smooth cornering are crucial in a good front sponson, and these provide that.
