I was just wondering if anyone had some advice about ski skins and if they are worth the money? I have heard they are good in sticky snow as the plastic would slide better? Will it improve performance at all on my sled?

Also, how do i respond to someone elses topic. I am new around here, thanks

just clikc the reply to topic button at the bottom of a thread....and for ski skins.....when i used to have em on my EXT, they got kinda cracked up from hittin rocks and stuff, iw ould just go w/ plastic skis if u have the funds, cuz they do get expensive, skins might give u more floatation cuz they a lil bit wider, and make ur sled look cool, but id just go w/ plastic skis if funds allow

The last set of ski skins I had I got over 5000 miles on them. If a person rides on snow and not on gravel roads they last a long time. I would go with plastic skis but if you can't afford the plastic skis go with the skins. Riley

I did not notice any significant speed improvement but turning and feel were improved on my XLTs. Pretty cheap if you don't bother with plastic skis and if you go with plastic skis, don't buy cheap ones!

Hi Nic,
The nicest thing about plastic skis is that they are alot lighter,
and quieter on icy surfaces.
I have some plastic skis called Uni-Ski on my 81 Trailcat that i love.
They are made by Motovan, and cost me $199.95 cdn for the pair!!
You could get into the more expensive ones by SLP and others,
but the Uni-Ski is the best buy for the buck,
and they come in lots of different colours too.
Try www.royaldistributing.com in Ontario for the Uni-Skis.
Skins work good too, but only add weight, only 1 or 2 lbs though,
but weight none the less.
Good luck.........K
