Karma vs. Mojo90

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've read some of the reviews of each of these skis, including Willb's head to head comparison and they seem very comparable. Please give me your choice (Karma, Mojo90, or Tie) for the following categories (with explanation if you can):
  1. Fresh Powder (1-2')
  2. Tracked powder on groomers
  3. Groomers (carving ability)
  4. Trees
  5. Stability at Speed
  6. Bumps
  7. Park or freeskiing landings
FYI. I'm 5'11" 170 so I'd look at the 176/177cm length.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

From what I've heard, you can't really go wrong with either of them. I'm sure someone has skied them both and will chime in though.

No takers on this one? Calling Karma and Mojo90 owners!!

I recently purchased the Karma, after doing some research on Epic and TGR. I got a lot of information from both sites. There was nothing bad said about the karma, but one person on TGR (quoted comment)complained about the mojo but that is only one person out of a ton of information.
Third hand information for what it's worth:

I mean, i am in love with the im.103s and i kind of liked the old im.85s but the 90´s suck.

They have the planky,grabby feeling of 85´s without the feeling of burl of 103s.

I have a pair of Karmas and they are awesome skis. They are great in soft snow of any type, and are real bombers on packed snow if skied fast and enthusiastically (ie, a ton of fun). The only time I thought they felt really out of their element was on corduroy, where they seemed a bit nervous.

I don't have any experience with the Mojos, but highly recommend the Karmas.

You probably felt out of your element because your Karmas were telling you "what is this lame ass run you are dragging me down"

Yeah, that was pretty much it! I kept saying "it's only a connector trail, it's only a connector" but I guess the skis didn't understand....

I have had both. I prefer the Karma since it has less shape. The Mojor really didn't want to release turns and I prefer straighter skis. The Karama's are a great groomer ski. Then again the mojo is a little wider. But neither is wide enough for a pow ski, in my opinion. Both well constructed and medium stiff.

I have a pair of 177 Karmas.

Skied them for 4 days (I have a 4-ski quiver, so i swapped out a lot last season) at Breckinridge/Keystone. They rocked in the windblown pow off of Peak 7/8 and the T-Bar. The only time they felt a bit sketchy was the first day I was at Breck skiing knee deep pow with ice underneath and the day we hit Keystone where the backside was all icy. But they held up (not a huge fan of ice and it always kind of throws me, especially after spending the entire season on pow, crud, and sierra cement).
