PERSONAL FAVES: 2017 Renegade Enduro 900 ACE
Everybody's had that one sled that stands out from the rest. It defines the fun of snowmobiling and every time you reflect back on it, there's a little twitch in your heart. In this series we asked our staffers to share their faves. Read what The intrepid Snowmobiler Craig Nicholson has to say about the 2017 Ski-Doo Renegade Enduro 900 ACE
As a high mileage trail rider, my criteria for sleds I've known and loved may differ from the other guys. My pick is the 2017 Ski-Doo Renegade Enduro 900 ACE I rode last season for almost 9,000 kilometres (5,400 miles).
Because I encounter a multitude of trail conditions I really appreciated the ride quality of the rear suspension. Tweaked with handlebar adjustable Air Ride, it synched with Ski-Doo's adjustable skis to provide a flexible range of cornering control and easy steering.
I loved the 900 ACE 4-stroke. It sips gas and babying it, my best fuel economy was almost 350 kilometres per tank. At a normal touring pace I averaged just under 300 (180-miles). The other key 900 ACE benefit for a touring rider is not having to carry extra oil.
That 900 ACE scooted my Renegade Enduro along nicely and kept pace with my buddies on their 600 and 800 2-strokes on trails.
It delivered consistent and reliable performance, handling and comfort in every condition and for every ride. What's more, I looked forward to climbing back in the saddle again every morning.
My only dislike was its drab Northern Lichen (tan) paint job. The goods news is the Enduro is back again for 2018 in a jazzy Lava Red that's easier on the eyes.
