Awesome deal on John 94 (formerly Mojo 94) 173 cm

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

Not sure if you're allowed to point out sweet deals on here so I apologize in advance if I'm violating protocoll. If so, let me know and I'll take this down.

 

If not, then if anyone is looking for a pair of these skis, which I gather are very well liked as an all-mountain carver/crud buster, then check out the deal at O2 gear shop. They only have them in 173 cm but they're currently going for a ridiculous $250 new with free shipping. On top of that, let's just say that without doing too much research you can find them in stock at another shop that offers a 10% price match. I ended up walking away with a brand new pair of these for $225 with free 2-day shipping. Might be worth checking out for some of you bears out there looking for a good West coast all-mountain ski.

Thanks a lot for the heads up on this amazing deal.  I just ordered a pair.

If you don't mind  different graphics, you can get the same ski in more variety of lengths at Level Nine.  They go by the name of Sweet One (European version) there and are $219.

Sweet One is a women ski.

So, what size for a woman who is an intermediate skier and 167 cm in height, 150 lb?

No clue, but is it REALLY a women's ski? 

 

The graphic is pretty androgynous if you ask me.  For the price and a confident guy, might be a good purchase.

 

Seriously, is it really a women's ski  or the same ski with a different topsheet?

To briefly follow-up, Level 9 claims they are the exact same ski as the John 94, although the dimensions seem to be ever so slightly off to me.

 

Has anyone seen these skis?  Would they work for a man?

I just bought a pair of the Head Sweet Ones (180cm) from Levelninesports. The dimensions are exactly the same as the Head John 180 cm  (132 94 119/19.5 meter radius). I just used them for the first time today at Whistler . They've been getting a ton of snow over the last few days. (42 cm in the last 24 hours).  These are a great ski. The snow depth was boot to almost knee high in places. I've been skiing on a Head Monster im82's for the last few years. I like the Monsters a lot but for these conditions the Sweet Ones worked well. They're very quick turning, lively ski, that floated pretty well for their width. The gladed runs that I sometimes have trouble with were easy. (Lots of tight turns) . They do ski short, my Monsters at 183cm feel much longer.

 

 I did have my local tuner structure the base and take out the wavy edge. What everyone been saying about the inconsitant bases are true. The base bevel varied between 1.25 and over 2.0 degrees at different places on the base. So I would work the bases before using.

If you want a fun ski for a cheap price, this is it. I put Mojo 12 bindings on. The price with shipping was $355.  I don't  think you can go wrong. The graphics are a little weird but I can put up with that for the price.
