We’re pretty sure we’re going to eat some criticism for this article but we’ve gotta give you the facts.
Polaris has been on the job the last couple of years and their list of industry homeruns is stacking up significantly.
Here’s some noteworthy observations:
This mountain sled has been the lightest, best handling mountain sled the last two years (and led the industry before that).
So far, this is the best 800 2-stroke in the biz when you combine EPA cleanness, power output, power delivery and rideability. Sure, Ski-Doo has an 850 E-TEC now and Cat just introduced a new slot-injected 800, but for the last three years, when it comes to 800s, the Polaris 800 HO has been IT!
The new 144 Switchback has put our entire team on “stun”. Never before has a sled like this combined on-trail comfort with off-trail prowess. The SW bar has been set super-high and the competition has to really work hard to match this sled’s abilities.
The super-light AXYS platform, especially its front clip, has proven to handle as precisely as a triple blade Gillette, be adaptable to many different model variations while improving every one of them and has dominated the competition whatever it’s used with.
Okay, I know we sound like we’re sucking up to Polaris, but when you add up the wins, it’s awfully hard to deny this company is kicking some butts.
We’re getting anxious to find out what they’ve got for 2018.
