Quiver Ski??

I was able to get a demo ski to try. I really wanted to like it but after a side by side visual comparison to my riot ski I was skeptical.

I put about 3 miles on it in crappy crusty snow and turned around and swapped back to my TS ski.

The quiver ski was very unpredictable in the conditions I was riding. It felt loose then would grab unpredictably. I almost hit a few trees it was so unpredictable. It put me into what I would compare to dirt biking tanks slapper mode with the bars going lock to lock.

I thought it might just be crap snow so swapped bikes with my buddies MH and it felt much better.

I did consult Quiver who, I felt, gave vague input that it takes a while to get used to the ski and to try to adjusting the saddle. I had the saddle in the middle position and didn't feel any amount of adjustment would make it better. But really I'd didnt want to mess with it, I just wanted to ride.

It might be good for some conditions but I don't feel it's a good all around ski.

I would say demo one if you can before buying. I've seen lots of people saying they love it. I did not.

What kind of crust?
Melt freeze or wind?

I don't come from a sled or ski background so I don't really know what to call it.

I was on some old groomed and I'd say melted crust that was soft underneath.

It was fun go anywhere snow with my TS ski.

I have the cmx ski and it has worked excellent in all conditions so far! We will see when it gets crusty that's where the yeti ski fails
I rode a cmx and yeti ski back to back on crusty snow and both hooked and darted about equally as bad. I think it has less to do with the side curve and more to do with flimsiness.

Those skis aren't ment for crusty conditions . A stiffer more rigid ski is not the direction you want to go , bring back a modern day flexi ski and it will save on the arm pump and the forks will thank you .

I'm surprised that ski drag is not more of a conversation , start swapping skis around and you'll figure out what one works in what conditions for multiple reasons .

Does anyone make a carbide wear bar for the Yeti/CMX ski ?
