I’ve used C&A pro skis on all my previous cats, what’s the word on the curve skis? I’ve heard good things about them.

Love the Mohawks on my 2015 9000. Great on trails with decent float on loose snow for a heavy sled. Very compliant for dealing with varying trail conditions.

So with the Mohawk, you buy the ski bottom , the mounting shoe, loops and carbides all as a separate item?

Yes, not cheap, around 450-500, but it’s a high end ski. I think I found on sale 2years ago black on black with green loops for ~425. tried on my sons viper and had to have for my 2015 9000 Turbo 137 skid. Made it a great handling trail sled ice or loose. Was pretty good before. I’m sure even better on a TC.

I'll second the SLP Mohawks. I've used them on my SideWinder's with excellent results. On trail/off trail they just get the job done in all conditions with this chassis. I've had some riding buds who had Curve's on their sleds switch to the Mohawks after riding my sleds. Enough said.

How bad are the darting characteristics of the Mohawks? Which runner are you running to keep darting to a minimum? I friggin hate dart.......

I thought Mohawks were like wider SLT skis-which do not dart.

With my experience over the last few years with the MoHawk skis on a SideWinder there is Zero darting. As with any ski you need to get your ski alignment in check and your front/rear suspensions dialed in and you'll be golden. I can ride down a worn down straight hardpack trail at the tail end of a weekend with only one hand on the bars without any problem keeping the front end in check without any effort. I've had the best results running the SLP 6" carbide.

How are the Mohawks for steering effort compared to stock? I'm currently running snow trackers on the stock skis.
