Only thing with the iqs is that some people (especially with the fusion) experience hard cornering and the sled turning like a tank. But see the forums here on HCS for people diagnosing this problem. I thought mine could be better and simply installed a set of Slydog trail skis and they dress up the sled as well as make the sled corner much better!
I have tested a lot of skis for my rev/summit, but the 7″ Powder Hounds is my choice. That’s because the 7″ Powder Hounds are lighter, float good, light steering on/off trail, good sidehill control, more flexible and way more impact resistant than others. The cool thing is that Slydog opens a whole new world of customizing ski colors and awesome patterns!
These skis have saved my a-arms many times! If the ski hit something like a rock or a tree, the impact gets soaked up by the ski, instead of being transferred into your sled! Incredible!
My slydogs only have small signs of wear after 3 years of hard riding, that’s fantastic!
I’ve had my Slydogs bend completely on top of themselves a couple times. They come right back and DEFINITELY float better than the stockers. I agree, however, that the stockers aren’t too shabby, but tend to push and sink a bit more for sure. Good skis for personal preference are a very worthwhile upgrade in my opinion.
If you demand a light weight, high performance and durable snowmobile ski, look no further than Slydog!
My Slydog Skis have steered me and my ride to new heights. I trust my Slydogs in all conditions.. from high flying ramp hits to mogul mashing rough trails Slydog Skis out perform the competition.
Staff and Owners at Slydog,
First I would like to say thank you for sending my skies to the Forestry Station in Jacobson MN. They were on the bar when we pulled into town that night.
95% of our riding that trip was groomed trail riding, I was very impressed with the lack of darting and their ability to track through even the tightest corners. I\’m looking forward to my up coming trip to the UP where I can try the powder side of these skies. So far they have out performed the Powder Pro skies that they replaced.
Thanks again for the great customer support.
Last season I upgraded my skis to match my newly added wrap, it was all about looks, until I had my first ride that is!! The Powder Hounds float, corner and sidehill better than anything I have ever tried no matter what the condition, bottomless powder or slushy spring corn they attack all like the ultimate weapon. One of the best upgrades for my sled to date and yes they look good too!!
Once again, I have to give you praises. Just got back from another trip and am just so impressed on the quality and feel of your skis. Got a lot of looks, too!!
I went from Powder Pros to Powder Hounds and found a lot better flotation with the Hounds and nice steering. Also, was able to hold a side hill like I’d been wishing I could for many years.
I have found for me that the Slydogs are the best ski for my Rev. The steering effort is comfortable for me, they have a nice flex, they float great in the powder and they turn where I point the bars. Overall I am very happy with the Slydogs. I think for me, I just prefer a more flexible single keel ski.
I wanted to let all at Slydog know that you have far surpassed my expectations. I took a gamble this year switching skis. I have been a long time Flexi-ski customer and this year I decided I wanted something different, something that floats better, something that looks awesome and more importantly overall functionality. I ordered a set of Urban Camo black/white/grey Powder Hounds for my 900 Dragon, yes I said 900 Dragon. Not only do your skis help my heavy hog float like a dream, they don’t dart, and they look amazing on the sled. The Slydog Powder Hound skis are by far the best performing ski on the market. Thank you very much.
