RXT aS.....with Pics!
My dealer has one and I really wanted it, but the numbers don't work for me now. I'll go another year and see then. There are no suspension buttons to raise or lower the deck. There is an easily adjusted pre-load under the seat and the reservoir is easily adjusted as well. Turn to the right, deck gets firm, to the left, it softens up. I could tell a big difference in the settings. Not sure there's even a Dock Mode. The ski here looks about all the way up. It does not include the Cruise/Slow Mode or the boarding ladder.

I have a 2010 RXT X (no suspension) and ride on a large lake that gets modest waves (average <3') and on occasion some big 5' waves. I find the least comfortable riding is at speed in light chop - for which the iS would be appropriate. I guess the aS model is for those who ride on the ocean and encounter large waves.
My dealer talked me out of the iS model, saying the complexity and the tippiness (top heavy when under way) didn't in his opinion make up for the improvement in ride.
There has been allot of discussion on this. I think if you need to tackle big ocean waves, this is a model to consider. Otherwise the RXT X is an awesome machine (and relatively simple to service - no top deck to remove).

Needless to say that cost, weight & complexity are also a factor. If possible, do a test ride on either and buy when the price is right.
