TXi: The Ski Course Slayer

13-Time Water Ski World Record Holder

 

The most respected ski boat in the world, the Response TXi brings three-event waterski performance like nothing else on the water today. Uniquely designed for the TXi, the T-Cut Diamond Hull™ has proved its performance both recreationally with countless personal bests and professionally with 13 world records under its belt. With Malibu innovations like the Advanced Rudder Control, the Response TXi produces the soft, barely-there wakes and rock-solid tracking to give the skier a consistent pull every time. The Malibu Open Edition includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Zero Off GPS speed control, and billet aluminum accents. The equally-capable and luxurious open bow version allows for two extra passengers to join you on the water and witness what only the TXi can do in the course.

Option up your braking system to let you have full, adjustable controls of where you engage brakes on your car and trailer.

Hand Brake

When the trailer is unhitched, there are 2 easy-to-engage hand brakes inside of the frame that ensure your trailer isn’t going to go anywhere when it’s not supposed to.
