Is The 121-Inch Track Gone for 2012?
Seems the definition of a snowmobile is moving toward more track at almost all the OEMs.
Initially, the move to longer track lengths on trail sleds created the crossover segment; a segment that now has as many or more models than either the Mountain or the Trail segment.
136-inches was originally the maximum for a crossover track, but is growing into the 141-144 range with demand for even more width and resulting increased flotation.
Trail riders are enjoying the deep snow capabilities of X-over rides and Mountain market buyers are appreciating the better trail-ability of a shorter length, high flotation sled like an X-over.
So, if crossovers become the new baseline for snowmobiles, what will happen to the 121-inchers?
