The Split Rail, Dual Axis Ski
Anyone on the cutting edge of what's new and cool has likely been curious about the Split Rail, Dual Axis ski. Both Supertrax and Snowtrax TV were the first to test it.
From day one, the Split Rail impressed me by taking sleds with handling deficiencies and improving them in a big way. Most notably would be Yamaha's Nytro. Always a big fan of the Nytro, I've come to accept its handling quirks because I like how it rides, how it fits me and I love that motor.
When Rob Wrightman, the mastermind behind the Split Rail, came to the Supertrax Cave with his first prototype and asked us what sled would benefit most from his radical design, everyone's first suggestion was the Nytro. Subsequently, all eyes turned to me to test the Split Rail on our Nytro SE PR unit two years ago.
Today, you can purchase the perfected version of the Split Rail. The decision was made to build versions for not just Yamaha's Nytro, but for the Polaris Rush and all XP/XR Ski-Doos. I've logged many miles on all three versions of the ski and at the end of the day my honest opinion is this: If you ride a Rush or a Ski-Doo XP you already have an excellent handling snowmobile.
However, the Split Rail can and will lessen darting and provide more linear bite thus allowing you to carry more speed through corners. It will also add extreme eye candy to your ride. The ultra trick split arch spindle with its polished finish and factory matched colored ski hoops are without equal in the ski aftermarket.
Honestly, even if they didn't lessen darting and improved cornering response, I'd get a set just because they look incredibly cool.
On the other hand, if you ride a Nytro, consider the Split Rail ski an absolute must have. The undeniable improvement this ski makes to the handling of any Nytro is impressive. Sure, you get all the sweet bling the other guys are getting. But on top of the ego stroke, you get a real, honest-to-goodness personality change for your sled.
Handling is way more precise and predictable on any surface. Twitchiness up through the bars is lessened while initial turn-in is softened. The simple addition of a Split Rail ski system can change the personality of your Nytro from unpredictable to a settled, more stable ride anytime, anywhere.
In my opinion, there's no other ski capable of equaling this kind of performance.
