Sick Machine!!

I recently went on a fishing trip with this machine. It was a two-hour trip over lakes, slush, through small bush trails. With the amount of snow we had this year, I don't have one complaint about this machine! There was a foot of slush on the lakes, about four feet of powder and this machine did it all! Also, trail riding with this machine - awesome - no darting, it sticks to the trail and gives it to them all day long!!

Amazing Sled

I am very impressed on all levels. I got a great performance on the trails but in the deep stuff is where this machine shines. There are tons of power and it flicks in any direction effortlessly.

Fast & Light

I have had this sled one year now, it's my 8th sled. There are no groomed trails where I live, only open country and mountains. This sled has been a solid performer, very fast, very light and easily carves powder with little effort when compared to a Renegade. The suspension is a little stiff for dead slow riding but perfect for faster speeds. I'd like to see better gas mileage from this SDI engine, it should be in the mid/high teens but isn't quite there. I love the looks and the power is intoxicating. It has been a great sled so far. I would recommend it to anyone.

There is nothing this sled needs to be changed. From trail riding to mountain deep snow, this sled just works fantastic. It's verrrrry easy to boondock, launch and climb in the deep stuff. The ride is super, plus the engine is solid, powerful and fast. I would change nothing. It has low oil consumption and good fuel economy. I have ridden the Cats and Doos and would not trade this sled for either. The fun factor is out of the park on this sled.

It's possibly the best sled I've ever owned. It has good power, great handling. I would recommend scratchers because mine overheats pretty easy when on hard packed trail. It's a FUN SLED!

It's a very impressive sled. I didnt think this sled would be faster then my 2009 Polaris IQ 800, but it just blows the IQ away. It has incredible power and torque, it handles very sharp for a longer sled and is comfortable on trails. Mine has the 1.352 Cobra track, which is a great crossover track, but in really deep snow I would prefer the 2-inch track. However for trail riding and free riding, the Cobra track is ideal. This sled is incredible, I am very satisfied and happy with it. If your looking for a new crossover powerhouse, this is definitely the way to go.
