Switchback®Technology: Rider Balanced & Most Versatile

Switchback®

Rider-balanced™ AXYS® Chassis

The AXYS® chassis features 93% new parts, and a rider-balanced positioning. The chassis delivers unparalleled control in any terrain, made possible by:

  • Putting the rider on the sled's AXYS®
  • Redesigning the rear suspension
  • Adding more power and removing weight

PRO-XC Suspension

The PRO-XC™ progressive-rate rear suspension allows the sled's pitch to be controlled by the suspension geometry, not the spring rate. This results in a flatter ride in the corners and stutter bumps and superior big-bump performance.

  • Lightweight, forged aluminum rear crank.
  • Completely redesigned crank and pivot.
  • Front torque arm moved rearward to control pitch, increase travel, and improve rail profile.

800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine

Developed in conjunction with the AXYS® platform, the proven 800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine delivers class-leading acceleration and industry-leading power-to-weight ratio.

  • 3-stage electronically-controlled exhaust valves
  • Electronic oil pump
  • Thermostat with bypass warms up to operating temperature 40% faster and improves durability
  • High-efficiency intake and exhaust
  • VForce Reeds
  • Lightweight crankshaft
  • New throttle body that's lighter and reduces throttle effort
  • Grooved Piston

Switchback®

Flatter through the turns. Lighter through the bumps.

Polaris Image is the only sled that corners flat and carries the front end.

Polaris = Rider Balanced™

Polaris® puts the rider right on the sled's AXYS®. Bite for flat cornering. Lite for superior handling and fun in the bumps and off-trail.

Ski- Doo® = Biased

Ski-Doo® is biased in a rider forward positioning. This offers great control on smooth trails, but less fun factor in bumps and off-trail riding.

Unrivaled Acceleration

Polaris Image is the quickest sled in its class.
