The skiers talked, and Malibu listened. The Short Wing Windshield allows the driver to lean over and have better direct communication with the rider as he or she is getting picked up for the next pull. It also allowed the tower to be moved forward so when a skier is going extra wide on a course, there's no chance of hitting the tower.

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

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.
