Alright i know these big pigs are heavy as heck. but any ideas on better steering. my skins on my skis should prolly be replaced. do the skins affect steering? the sled barely feels like it wants to turn. any help would be great. thank you

If you are on hard-pack the runners, "bite" and give you traction. the ski skins help it slide and float on powder. If you are having trouble steering in the powder, then that is because you are not leaning enough.

the sole purpose of ski skins is to reduce friction between the ski and snow. steel skis will stick to snow creating drag while the plastic skins will reduce the drag and flow more easily over any surface. take a piece of steel and a piece of uhmw and drag it on the ground, the difference is obvious.

steering issues can be contributed to alot of things, carbides included but usually they are considered a performance enhancer more than a correction.

suspension settings cost nothing and can and will improve handling characteristics including traction, steering effort, and steering tracking.
