    Keel guard

    Would adding a keel guard strip to tour ski hurt proformance. We ride in the tennessee river and with all the rocks along the shore the hulls take a beating, but I don't want to slow my ultra down by adding the keep guard. Any one had one before that may help? Thanks!!!

    I installed a keel guard on the bottom of my 15f back in the summer. It doesn't seem to have affected it in a bad way at all, if anything it has helped the handling some. There isn't any speed gain that I can see. The ski feels better in a hard turn and not as twitchy.
    I do some riding at pickwick, thats the only reason i put a keel guard on my ski. You can get them a little cheaper at a Sportsman warehouse, or a Dicks Sporting goods.
