    Majority of us that have one, love them. Great choice for a 3 seater.

    Be aware of the suspension when it comes to maintenance. If you plan on doing it yourself, it's a pain in the ass. If you plan on having a dealership do your work, it's very expensive.

    I thought the suspension models used to be called "IS", not "AS". My bad.

    The "IS" is on the GTX limited and the "AS" is on the RTX-X. The GTX adjust on it own but the RTX you have to adjust depending on how you want it to feel. I really want to know how they handle in rough water and if you have to constantly adjust or is pretty much okay once you get it the way you want it. I was also looking at the GTX and a local dealer has a RTX-X AS on hand. With the season is coming to an end around here I might be able to get a decent deal on soon.

    Ok. shows how much I pay attention to models other than what I own. I did ride a GTX limited a couple of years ago and it rode very nice. But like SCHNORR12 says, I do know the suspension skis can be a pain in the ass to work on.

    iS is the intelligent suspension and the aS is the air suspension.

    I have never ridden an aS ski, but I did just own a 2010 GTX iS 215 and the suspension definitely makes a difference (especially for passengers). I never adjusted the suspension though, I just ran with it. The handling isn't much different, but they are better in the chop.

    And here I was thinking the "a" meant "adjustable," not "air."

    iS is Intelligent Suspension. Electronically adjustable.


    aS is Adjustable Suspension. Manually adjustable.

    This ^

    iS suspension can be raised or lowered in iS MANUAL mode by the rider or when put in iS AUTO mode will raise and lower itself
    depending on speed.

    As far as the aS im not actually sure what can he adjusted, Height? Shock Dampening?
