Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sled. Awesome power. Love everything about it. Other than it needing stiffer springs from factory. And launch control would be super nice as well as more track options

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it is a rocket great handling, great ride, tons of power. wish I would have gotten the sled I ordered. I hate the color and hate that i had to pay more to get it. ended up buying a sled that someone else backed out of buying. the sled I ordered showed up at the dealer mid February. the local dealer fixed me up the best he could. polaris needs to fix the snowcheck system to what it use to be. this is my 7th snowcheck sled and it might be my last if the system is not fixed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sled The sled is way over priced. I wouldn't buy another one for that price ever again. I thought I'd get a few extra perks for that kind of money not even a tether on this or a helmet plug in. The sled is geared lower with the 2 inch paddle track which I wasn't expecting that. He'll an 850 lync can take this turbo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible machine! I love this sled! 2” track goes anywhere off trail and handles hard pack trails well too. Can’t wait for next season!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have over 20 Polaris vehicles. Nice sled but just opened the Trailer and the rubber floor is completely soaked in oil. Look in the oil cap and it’s completely empty. All over the floor.
