Features

Features

  • 850 E-TEC - POWER THAT DRIVES YOU: Backcountry sleds are powered by your choice of three industry-leading Rotax 2-stroke. Each offers instant response, breathtaking acceleration and seamless power to go with a sterling reputation for reliability.
  • CROSSOVER CONTROL AND CARVING - CMOTION REAR SUSPENSION: Crossover-specific suspension uses best principles of the rMotion trail and tMotion deep-snow skids for confident cornering and agile boondocking – such as rigid front and rear arms with excellent weight transfer. It also features a rising-rate motion ratio, like the latest generation of Ski-Doo rear suspensions, to provide superior control and comfort. Tipped rails enable better cornering, boost top-end speed and fuel efficiency.
  • CROSSOVER PRECISION - RAS X CROSSOVER FRONT SUSPENSION: An updated version of our RAS X trail front end for capability on- and off-trail. Light steering feel optimized for crossover usage with adjustable stance.
  • BITE HARD - PILOT DS 2 SKIS: Deep keel design offers consistent predictable control on the trail. Wider profile provides ample flotation when you jump over the snow banks.
  • EASIEST STARTING - E-TEC SHOT STARTER: Push-button starting with almost no added weight. After an initial pull-start, the engine charges an ultracapacitor. Pushing the handlebar SHOT button for subsequent starts uses energy stored in the ultracapacitor to turn the magneto into an electric motor that rotates the flywheel, and with E-TEC technology, starts the engine. Eliminates nearly 20 lb. (9 kg) compared to conventional electric start. SHOT starting is only possible with Ski-Doo-exclusive E-TEC technology.
