MOST ANTICIPATED 2018 SLEDS: Renegade X-RS
Although I don't think there are any bad sled choices this season, there are certainly a few I'm more excited about than the rest. Here's another I'm really looking forward to riding this season:
Ski-Doo's 2018 Renegade X-RS with the 850 E-TEC engine is a hot rod, so obviously it's going to be exciting.
I'm excited about this sled for more reasons than just its macho, cool-guy essence though. The X-RS features the highest end shock package in Ski-Doo's lineup and given our criticism of the non-adjustable shock packages on the front of other high end Ski-Doo models I'm most excited to get the opportunity to see what the G4 front end is truly capable of when its properly suspended.
Our biggest complaint about the G4 chassis since it hit the snow has been that the front end can get overworked quickly when the bumps get big and the speeds climb.
With no ability to adjust the front shocks, this has been something we've just had to live with.
Now though, with all the adjustments the high-end KYB piggybacks on the front of the X-RS have, we'll be able to tune this baby right up and see if the complaints we've had so far are shock or chassis-based and if the front end can be set up to ride as incredibly as the rear end.
