Wheels for skis

Postby mshulman » March 20th, 2005, 3:59 pm

Does anyone know of other options besides www.snomowheels.com for products that allow for skis to go along pavement?

I have a short ride up 2 streets to get to the trails and for the last 2 weekends it's been a little rough. Spending $500 for my 2 sleds is a little much just for 2-3 weekends a year.

Thanks!

You may want to check out www.retrax.net for their retractable wheels-I have a set and they work well, and from your description of use-would work well.

You will find they work well in parking lots-such as gas stations for refueling. Believe they are $200 a set, real nice product.

I had a set of retrax on my fusion, and I will be VERY honest they kick up a TON of snow. Yes they work good, but the amount of snow in your face was not worth it. I would be willing to sell my set for $150.

The wheels can kick up some snow, but I never seen it as a problem on my Polaris XC. Thinking of getting a set for the new Yamaha Apex,as they work nice on the parking lots that have no snow on them.
