Default Installation and Review: Simmons Gen III Flexi-Ski

Last May I placed an advance order for a pair of the Simmons Gen III Flexi-Skis for my Yamaha Nytro after having heard some wonderful comments from test riders who had access to prototype versions last winter.

Today, my order arrived!

As with most good things, the skis arrived in a plain brown box!


Skis came with NO packing material, just slid into the box.



One thing that really surprised me is that there is NO documentation of any kind. Not so much as a note from Simmons, just the box and the skis.

In the box were 2 mirror image skis.
I say mirror image as they are identical, but OPPOSITE.
They is a Left ski and a Right ski!


And the two skis are CLEARLY marked so there is no mistaking which one goes on which side of the sled.

The mounting plate is "robust" if not very sturdy!

The bottom of these skis is clearly what sets them apart from everything else on the market. They have dual keels that are Asymmetrical, which is why the skis are labeled Left and Right.

Yamaha OEM Ski


New Simmons Gen III Ski


Total Weight Gain = 2.2lbs PER SKI

So about 4 and a half pounds more on your sled.
