This versatile sled delivers a great experience on- and off-trail, and its price makes it an outstanding value. The 136" coupled rear suspension has an extended footprint that enhances flotation in deep snow. On the trail, it bridges bumps for a smooth ride and easy handling. RydeFX® MPV shocks in the front and rear suspension ensure consistent performance. While 136" Shockwave track has 1.25" lugs and provides sure-footed trail traction and off-trail flotation.
