WHERE OTHERS TURN BACK

Switchback®Technology: Rider Balanced & Most Versatile

Rider-balanced AXYS™ Chassis

The all new AXYS™ chassis features 93% new parts, and a rider-balanced positioning. The new chassis delivers unparalled 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 completely redesigned 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.


  • New 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 new 800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine delivers class-leading acceleration.


  • 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

Switchback®: Flatter through the turns

Lighter through the bumps

Polaris is Rider Balanced™

AXYS™ is the only sled that corners flat and carries the front end.

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



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

AXYS™ is the Quickest Sled in its Class.

Whether it's measured in 0-60 mph, acceleration and speed through the 1/4 mile, or corner-to-corner acceleration for 30-50 mph, the AXYS™ is class-leading.
