Looks like a bolt on way to add spring and damping force without going into your forks.

Looks like ski and spindle are $500



Looks like the same ski mounting and rubber as the current rmk.

That looks like it will have the same problems.

I could see maybe $500 but not $900! For what they're asking for the dang thing I'd be inclined to pick up a used fork and set it up to swap if going back to dirt in the summer. If you have a dedicated snow bike it makes zero sense to do this instead of having your fork sprung and valved. Like you said extra weight and parts at that point.

For instant gratification it would be ok I guess.

I built a snowbike with a third fork on it last year.
You can feel that the steering is heavy and reactive to the added mass.

I think I'm going to buy springs and try that. (Yami SSS forks)

Default cost vs function

I get it... it's the easy button. Buying springs, having a 2nd set of forks and having them valved for free style MX and likely adding a airpro system or having to revalve and spring your 1 pair of forks every season is a pain in the ***... it's a quick fix.

That said... my AER forks with Kreft Revalve Control cost 1000 bucks but can by switched with an air pump and a 12mm wrench from trail to snow, so i'm good.
