Head Mojo 94 question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I demoed a pair of the 09 Head Mojo 94s. I thought they were excellent skis, but I had one big complaint. When I went into an area that was more hard packed and a little icy, the edges were not grabbing, thus making it extremely difficult to carve down the slope. 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?

Thanks

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!!!!

get on the outside skis hard and it should able to grab nearly anything.

these 105mm and softer I never had an issue at speed on a groomer



100 percent of you weight on outside big toe and they will bite trust me.

I know you love to show everyone what a great skier you think you are!

the on-piste performance of the MOJO 94 has nothing to due with my technique for sure and probably not the OP's either.

It is quite a jump in fact a minimu blatntly arrogant when asked about a piece of equipment for you to come up with some texchnique BS!

But as I have commented previously you will turn the slimmest of opportunities into a "Look what a great skier i think I am" Photo OP!

By the way! Nice traverse Looks like hardcore 2-footed skiing to me!

so many complaints about a fatter skis lack of performance is from over weighting the inside skis. If people balanced where they should be on the outside ski this conversation would never happen

the only reason I use pics of me is because I can find them quicker than anything else. I am sorry if there was some of you I would use those as well, but there arent.

try finding a pic of someone carving groomers on 90-110 mm skis and you wont find them.

ALL THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE TRUE

BUT YOU CAN'T DENY A SKI WITH A 2-3 DEGREE BASE BEVEL AND A 1 DEGREE SIDE EDGE IS NOT GOING MUCH OF A PERFOMER ON THE GROOMED, EVEN ON YOUR MAGIC FEET!

You really thought that shot of you demonsrates an outside ski dominant stance

i think you got that backwards...

wouldnt that be a 1 degree base bevel and 3 degree side? I mean thats what I run on everything I always thought that was right?

picture kinda of does. It demonstrates(no spell check on your computer eh?) angles on a groomer yeah its weird angle w/e though its infinitive more than you ve ever posted.

Some of the big mountain guys run 2-3 BASE bevels though because it makes the skis 'surfy" I dont like that feel, I like to actually have an edge. to each his own though.

No, open thy ears and pay attention. the ski I skied on yesterday had a 2-3 degree base edge and a 1 degree side edge. THAT IS WHY IT DID NOT SKI WELL ON THE GROOMED SNOW!!!!!

I would retune it if i bought it to a 1 Base edge anfd a 3 side edge!

Capiche?
