    Need new traction mats

    Just wondering if the Hydro-Turf mats with the 3M adhesive are any good. My OG ones are totally damaged. Good price but quality?

    What are people using?

    Thanks Rick

    I tried them on one of my RXP's three years ago, no problems yet. I will never do the glue down again, half the time, ready to use right away, and zero mess. Just make sure you clean and prep the surfaces real good.

    Yes, get them with the 3m tape.
    To install, before you remove the old pads, put masking tape on the deck at the corners of the mats. This will help with locating the new mats.
    Remove the old mats and clean the deck, very well, all wax , every thing. Then lay out the new mat and check the fit, adjust the tape if need be but it should be pretty close. Install the mats, do the front ones first and work your way to the back. Do the big one at the back last. Be careful not to stretch the big one as the logo will have gaps if you do.

    Good luck!!!

    I'm using the Blacktip mats, with the PSA backing as well. Good price, and nice quality.

    I have the Hydro-Turf on all my skis with the 3m adhesive. They are very easy to install and as long as you prep the area good you will have no problems
