Always heard good things about c n a pros, but my buddy ran curve on his nitro and said handling was improved dramatically due to heavy nose, obviously different chassis but is a concern, curve has some nice features on the c n a with some add twists no pun intended ��, I'm looking into them and report back,

I'll be running curves on mine. If your only running trails, the 6" Cat skis worked pretty good on my 14 viper. (And cheap)

X2 on the Curves. They bite and are predictable. Tuners just don't work in most conditions at higher speeds.

Can you get me a price on Curves, black with 6inch carbides with mounts for my SW? I didn't find them on your website.
Thanks.

I ran Curves for 3 seasons across two separate Polaris sleds (2012 Switchback and 2015 Rush). Prior to the Curves I had used USI x2 Triple Threats, and swapped rides with a buddy who had C&A Razors. The Curves were the best skis of the bunch ... even my buddy agreed.

Talking to the Curve guys at Haydays, they recommended a traditional round bar vs. using a Shaper or Bergstrom's. So that's what I used .... and was very happy with the results. If they worked well on my Switchback, I can only assume they'd work just as well on the new Yam

Thanks.
i didn't have time to get them on the site yet with all the options and right now the site is screwed up and wont let me add anything.
I can do a set for $410 with an upgrade to 6 inch carbides instead of the standard 4 inch.

the basic ones that come from curve appear to be their own line(round bar), but I can and will order any brand or style a customer wants and then just adjust the price accordingly.
