Let’s be fair, not everyone can afford to buy a brand new ski every two or three years – nor do others really want to. Even a 10-year-old PWC is a marvel of hull design, ergonomics and fly-by-wire electronic convenience. Yet, as things manage to go, too much time outdoors can make an older ski look pretty haggard.
Recently, RIVA Racing announced its got Hydro-Turf peel-and-stick mat kits for all 2009-through-2017 S3-based Sea-Doos on sale. And yes, this includes all suspension-equipped models as well (iS, aS and S) – and all for an incredible $65 a pop! That’s literally half of the previous asking price. Not too shabby, eh?
These Hydro-Turf traction mat kits are a great replacement (and upgrade) from the rather thin foam padding these skis came from the factory with. Made from extremely durable, high-density foam, each kit comes complete and in a UV-resistant color of your choice. (RIVA does note that due to manufacturing delays, kit orders will be shipped approximately 4-6 weeks from date of order.)
