Powder Pros vs Mohawk skis

My Powder Pros now have around 18,000 miles on them and have quite a few battle scars. I'm going to buy new bottoms this summer, and was thinking about looking into Mohawk bottoms instead. Mohawks are an evolution of the PPs, and the mounts/runners will interchange, from what I've been told. My question is, has anybody out there gone from PPs to Mohawks, and what are your thoughts about the switch? I do 100% trail riding, and love the PPs, but wonder if the Mohawks are an improvement. Switching to anything else is not an option for me.

@captainruss99 ,



I found this on Snowest from the SLP rep regarding the Mohawks. It is from 2016. Hope it helps.









In reading your thread, I'm betting that you've already done some research to point you towards the MoHawks, so some of this you probably already know, but if not, I thought it might help put our 2 cents in.



The Powder Pro has been a great option for the Arctic Cat if you're running the deep powder all the time. When designing the MoHawk, we wanted to take the good things from the Powder Pro and add some new designs to enhance riding on the trail and harder conditions.



The Mowhawk uses a Powder Control wing similar to the Powder Pro, but they also have a wider, more stable base in the center of the ski. Maneuverability and handling off-trail is still excellent (flotation is even a little better), but it is particularly more consistent and predictable on the trail. The MoHawk is also more flexible for better handling in bumpy conditions. Either one of our skis is a huge improvement over stock.



Attached is a picture further explaining the characteristics of the MoHawk.
