When it comes to snowmobiles, even the biggest wheelie heros know you need skis. Here at Sledheadzzz we choose to use C&A Pro Skis. With that said there are a lot of options out there and some brands focus on specific riding styles, but C&A Pro Skis seems to have all the bases covered. This is perfect for us as we thoroughly enjoy hitting the hard packed trails in Northern Minnesota and shredding the fresh powder in the Rockies. Today we will be taking a look at the BX Mountain Ski!
C&A Pro Skis: Best Mountain Ski in 2020
When you hear “C&A Pro Skis”, it is very likely you start thinking about snocross. Being named the official ski of the ISOC Series, C&A has definitely established a dominating presence in the race world. What many may not know is that they also make a phenomenal mountain ski for the guys and girls out there that enjoy riding the hillsides full of deep powder. Their proven quality in the XT model ski used in snocross carries over to all of their skis including the BX model, which is the mountain ski we use on our 2016 Polaris Pro RMK and will be further discussing the remainder of this article.
BX Mountain Ski Features
BX is short for “Boondocking Xtreme.” This ski is built for technical tree riding and deep powder. Let’s waste no time and get straight to the details on this ski!
Center Keel– increasing your navigability through the trees. This is also were your carbides, which will likely be round bars, get inserted
Snow Scoops– helping you stay planted on off-camber hills
Wide Platform– providing you plenty of float for staying on top of that fresh powder and also a place to stand when trying to stay on top of the snow, need you get off your machine
Tapered Rear– also referred to as a dove tail, this feature allows you to hold a better side hill
Kick-Up On Rear– allows you to take full advantage of reverse when loading or unloading your sled
Integrated Traction Grooves– along the outside edges of the ski and the saddle you will find these traction grooves giving you a firm footing when you get off your sled in deep snow
Adjustable Handle/Tip– the 3 hole adjustability of the handle, sometimes referred to as ski loop, allows you to raise or lower the front of the ski by up to 2 inches. This is useful for when you get into deep powder and want to push as much snow under the ski as possible
Durable– these skis are strong! The plastic used to make these skis is one that is meant to withstand the abuse you have in store for it
