This used Simmon's Ski photo taken from DooTalk shows their typical wear pattern taken to the extreme. The new carbide in the photo is of their latest design. Not only can it be prevented, but it can be restored

I removed the 3000 mile ski photo because I did not have contact information for the owner. They wanted me to add this disclaimer to the white skis – “This photograph may not reflect or show normal wear from normal use of a Simmons ski.” Wear, depends on conditions! Heck, in the Rockford area our trails open with just 4” of snow. So what’s normal?
These photos showed Simmons “normal” heavy wear on the front of the wear rods and skis. Original photos
I was going to include their fax but the legal mumbo-jumbo at the end said the contents could not be disclosed.

Dear Mr. Anderson:
I totally disagree with your description of the information found on Aftermarket Plastic Ski Wear Patterns listed in the Useful Information Section of my website.http://www.bergstromskegs.com First of all, it is not advertising, it is information. Sure plastic skis will hold up better than these photos indicate in deep powder, common sense tells you that. Most snowmobilers ride in the Midwest on groomed trails, usually hardpacked. That means abrasion, which translates into wear. I am surprised Simmons was not aware of this. Also, it should be obvious when a snowmobile is on pavement the wear rods make contact, not the ski. When I came across the second set of Simmons skis I added them to demonstrate the variation in the wear pattern.
As you will see, I believe more information is better than none. I also believe a snowmobiler will be able to interpret this information. Allowing them to make a decision that fits their needs.
I hope this satisfies your desire for accurate information being supplied to snowmobilers. If you have any comments or suggestions I would be willing to listen.
