On all of the other skis I demoed, the edges held fine, but this pair would just slide down. Is this typical of these skis or was it just that they were a pair of demo skis and the edges could have been sharper?
I also demoed the MOJO 94 yesterday. I loved the ski. although i will say it was one of the best powder days I have ever experienced here in the Great Pacific Northwest. At a minimum 2 feet of new and much deeper in many places with snow that fell with temps in the teens. Not very crowded at crystal Mt. yesterday and tons of untracked to be had. Extremely steep and unbelievably deep!!
I too am a bit concerned with the skis on-piste performance.
I checked the base and side edge bevels on the demo pair i used yesterday (these were in excellent condition and looked as though they had been barely used)
the base bevel was in the 2 degree range and even as much as 3 in places. the side edge was a mere1 degree.
If I decide to buy a pair I would immediately totally retune the ski to a true 1 degree base edge and 3 degree side edge.
I own the Monster 88 and supershape speed and i.SL Rd and have retuned all of them including the Monster to a 1/3.
In conclusion I believe the on-piste isse with the MOJO 94 is merely the tune.
By the way the pair I skied on were not horriblr on the groomed, but it was very soft and they were ore squirlly then i like even on the soft groomed snow.
Other then that the skis were absolutley superb in the POW, chop and soft bumps!!!!
