Features

Features

  • 850 E-TEC - POWER THAT DRIVES YOU: Backcountry sleds are powered by your choice of three industry-leading Rotax 2-stroke. Each offers instant response, breathtaking acceleration and seamless power to go with a sterling reputation for reliability.
  • CROSSOVER CONTROL AND CARVING - CMOTION REAR SUSPENSION: Crossover-specific suspension uses best principles of the rMotion trail and tMotion deep-snow skids for confident cornering and agile boondocking – such as rigid front and rear arms with excellent weight transfer. It also features a rising-rate motion ratio, like the latest generation of Ski-Doo rear suspensions, to provide superior control and comfort. Tipped rails enable better cornering, boost top-end speed and fuel efficiency.
  • CROSSOVER PRECISION - RAS X CROSSOVER FRONT SUSPENSION: An updated version of our RAS X trail front end for capability on- and off-trail. Light steering feel optimized for crossover usage with adjustable stance.
  • BITE HARD - PILOT DS 2 SKIS: Deep keel design offers consistent predictable control on the trail. Wider profile provides ample flotation when you jump over the snow banks.
