If you know a thing or two about snowmobiling like we do, you’ll remember a few years back that a small company called Redline tried to enter the snomo-biz only to fail in its attempts.
This past weekend at Hay Days in Minnesota we got up close and personal with the new offering to carry this moniker and, although Redline has an historical snowmobiling past, it was clear that the new ownership has distanced itself from this brief moment in history.
The single-passenger Redline Revolt STV (Sport Terrain Vehicle) is powered by an EFI 749cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke built by Weber in Germany with a CVT transmission. The Revolt is capable of speeds up to 60mph and features shaft drive to the rear wheels.
It boasts double A-arm front suspension and a trailing arm rear with an incredible 17 inches of travel out front and 16.5 out back.
This thing can soak up the bumps, has awesome ground clearance and handles hard impacts from catching air. At only 700 lbs, dry, you’ll be surprised if it doesn’t sprout wings during lift off.
We’ll be anxiously awaiting our turn on the Revolt. Stay tuned…
