Thread: What year XP?

  1. #1

    What year XP?

    I am going to be buying my first ski and after doing some research I found that the XP's are a crowd favorite. I have found several online and I am not sure which is the best as far as years go. I was looking at some 1995 and 1996 models, are these reliable models and which year is the best?

    Also, where can I go to learn about maintenance. I can take them to a mechanic but I want to be able to perform basic maintenance myself.

    Thanks for your help!

    96 would be the best of those two you asked about. Larger engine and better hull design. Also the spx 97 and up is the same ski. The 97 xp is a bit underpowered. Great hull though. But the xp is really a better single rider ski. not the best to ride two up

    +1 They arent great for big riders as well. Make sure they let you test ride the ski to see if you like as well if possible.
