Default Your Gen-4 Skid Plate & Ski preferences ??

I'll be getting my new Gen-4 Summit 600R here soon!, and was curious of what you have found to be more appropriate for the new platform:

Do you find the Extreme Skid good enough?
or is the Full Body Skid? worth the extra money in what looks like more protection & reduced drag (hopefully w/out filling up w heavy NW snow)

Also, have you found the stock Pilot DS3 skis to now be good enough?
or should I definitely swap my Mohawk skis over from my past XM?


Thanks for your input!

RPM composites skid plate gives you the most protection as it covers the chain case and brake caliper but it is the most pricey, fits like a glove so no extra snow.
I have never changed skis and find the stock skis work fine. Jmo

I second the RPM invincible shield. I've heard mohawks are great on the G4 but don't have any seat time with them.

I get my RPM Composites skid plate in the next week or so. He is just finalizing the mold since there was a slight change for the 2019s underneath. Pretty excited to get it!

8" slydogs are my favourite pow ski its like adding power steering.

They add enough float to avoid the submarining where you are looking for landmines and flex well to avoid damage when you do hit anything.
All around the best well rounded balanced setup for me.

Not happy with any of the BRP skid plates look aftermarket there.

I can't seem to justify paying $650 for a skid plate! I understand its carbon fiber, but holy hell!

Zero issues with the SkiDoo full skid plate and stock skiis. Better trinkets to spend our money on IMO.

I also opted for the Skidoo full skid plate. No way I'm paying a grand (Canadian) for a skidplate!
