Ski Mojo - Review Jan 2015 - Updated March 16th

Things I found:

1) You need bigger salopettes, mine were about 10 years old and although decent quality a little tight and the Mojo threatened them and cause the zip a bit of stress, I bought a pair of cheap ones from Decathlon for the second holiday with more room and had less fear of a salopette failure.

You also need salopettes that are smooth, nylon lined. The Velcro on the mojo sticks to fleece lined salopettes. Embarassed

I have now used my mojo on two different weeks and have now sorted most of the issues out. I did have to use an allen key on one of the clamps as it had worn loose. Certainly less fatigue in my thighs at the end of each day. I agree about the Salopettes. The one issue I still have is to do with the suspender belt ( I know that is the wrong name for it). I find that the horizontal clip at the front does not stay in position over the webbing. If anyone understands what I am trying to describe , I would be grateful for any advice or comments.

T bar - very interesting and supportive post. Amusement for friends and family (?) is something I am hoping to avoid, my husband is supportive although no doubt there will be a little ribaldry in the bedroom before going down to the ski room but as for the friends - I am hoping to amaze them with my new ability to stay out for several more runs than has been the case in the couple of years. I will report back when I return but this wont be until towards the end of April.

So the broken clip on first use has been fixed quickly. However now over in Whistler and the left one has given up. Pulley in the hinge has disintegrated. Made of plastic. It will be replaced but not much use when you have spent a lot of money on these things only to get 3 days use from them out of 9. Grrrr

Not impressed with the quality and there is no on mountain service possible.

Handy when they are working though.

I have had mine for 2+ years now, main issue has been the clip on the end of the pole that connects to the boot. I hear this has been replaced with a new design. is your a push fit, or do you pull a slide mechanism before connecting the bottom rod to the boot?

With regard the hinge (assume you mean the knee hinge where the spring is located), our small ski group has a total of 3 ski mojo between us. Two around are around 2 years old and suffered boot clip issue, now resolved. 1 @ 5+years old which had issues where rod connected to waste band - original design changed with the popper stud which as worked well. None of us have had and knee hinge issues so suspect you are just unlucky.

It is frustrating when it fails in resort, especially as there is unlikely to be any local solution. I now carry spared for the boot clips, but unlikely to have spared for knee hinge.

@Steveee, the annoying thing about the new design for attaching to the boot is that hat stud us slightly smaller do need to change that as well. I remain overall pleased i have it but the engineering is rubbish

Should have kept quiet! Clip holding bottom rod to main part of mojo disappeared today! No spares for that, means it has to be returned for repair Twisted Evil
Good news is the clip is not a key part of the mojo, I.e. just stops rod dropping out of sleeve so I can continue to use the mojo for last 2 days of holiday. Disappointed it failed after 2 seasons, but them my wife's is going strong after 6+ seasons and has the same type of clip.

@Steveee, The clip was the one on the under crotch ones that attach to the MoJo top point. It was just a badly made clip as soon as any pressure was put on it the clip just fell apart. Managed to work with that though as not crucial.

The real problem is the hinge. There is a plastic washer that the steel rope slides on and one just disintegrated. So when in resort not a lot can be done. Could have worn jus the one but it was the worst knee where the joint failed so would not have been much use. So managed less skiing after they broke and suffering painful knees.

I am surprised they do not try and sell them in resorts as there must be a huge demand. Maybe I need to put a bid in for Whistler and see what deal they will do.

I did ask why it was plastic and not metal, but Martin said he had had trouble with metal causing grinding and swarf so made them from plastic and "has no trouble with them".

Really hoping I am just unlucky as I don't want to have to start taking 2 pairs just to get a ski break in.

I used Loctite on the clamps at they had always opened up at the end of each day and using the Allen key to tighten everything daily is a pain. Replaced boot clamps now I am convinced they work, with the through boot stud and Loctite so they stayed fastened. All fine apart from the complete blow out of the hinge.

The straps you are taking about will never stay on the webbing and don't give me any problems. The webbing does cover the clips which is where they could rub so ok with that. That was the clip that gave up the ghost on me first time on in anger.

Not sure the engineering is rubbish i.e. the design. But do agree that 2 trips and 2 breakages (one annoying the other catastrophic) is not a good record here too.

When I read your woes on here I did hope that you had just got a bad set - not so sure now. With no help out in resort and totally relying on them to ski a reasonable amount each day, I do worry that you need a full set of spares to "fix any problem" or just carry a second set Shocked

Will try again next season as they will go in the loft when I get them back.

@Jake43, when i say engineering i mean the quality of materials and build...But there are also issues with the design that really should have been obvious at the start

I have just had my fourth ski trip using my Ski Mojo. I have a slightly bent, weak right knee due to a problem at birth. The Mojo definitely helps take off some of the pressure and I can now ski for longer each day with a less swollen knee at the end of a week.

However, I have a few niggles with it and was wondering if anyone had any useful advice on how to solve the following issues:

1. The D rings on the webbing belt do not stay vertical - they always get pulled round and end up horizontal.
2. The bandages above and below the hinges constantly slip down, despite them being as tight as I can comfortably get them. I have to find a loo and re-adjust them two or three times a day. If I have to walk to the lift, they will have slipped down before I even begin skiing.
3. Even with the bandages in the correct position, both hinges do not engage when I stand up. I have to take off my skis, straighten each leg as much as possible and give each hinge as a short, sharp knock to engage them before putting my skis back on. The shape of my legs is probably the reason for this, but I was wondering if adjusting the Mojo in some way might solve this issue.

Thanks for any useful advice you can offer. Puzzled Smile

@FionaG,

D rings...no advice. Same for me. Design flaw IMHO

Bandages...no advice. I wear mine over long johns and they do slip a bit.

Engaging hinges...i have to do the same with my wonky knee. The straight leg engages fine. My mojo was fitted and its the best they could do...i also wear it over a pretty chunky brace so that probably doesn't help

 You know it makes sense.

If the mojo is not engaging then it can, well my model can, be adjusted so that it engages with more of a bent knee than a straight leg.
