SnowTech Magazine and Polaris have partnered in the creation of two region-specific SnowTech Project Sled builds for 2019. Both of these sled builds feature the Polaris AXYS platform for ultimate ride and handling in their respective regions.
Out west, SnowTech Mountain editors have chosen the 2019 Polaris 850 PRO-RMK 163” as their basis for creating a dream machine to dominate the deep western snows and mountain slopes.
SnowTech Mountain Editor Dustin Pancheri states, “The 2019 Polaris 850 RMK 163” is an awesome sled right out of the box – we are looking to show riders how they can easily enhance the performance of this machine. Both Polaris and the aftermarket have developed a host of bolt-ons and accessories that can take the PRO-RMK to the next level!”
In the Midwest, SnowTech editors have chosen the 2019 Polaris 850 Switchback Assault 144” as the starting point for creating an epic ride to dominate the lake effect snows, forest roads and groomed trail system of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
SnowTech Editor Kevin Beilke states, “The 2019 Polaris 850 Switchback Assault 144 is one of the very best 50/50 crossover sleds ever built. Great power and durability along with the overall versatility of this sled are critical features when riding the varied terrain in the U.P. of Michigan. We’re going to show riders how they can bolt on select accessories and turn their machine into an even more dominating performer, with a custom look and even greater versatility and function.”
Both project sled builds will feature genuine OEM Polaris parts and accessories, as well as select accessories from leading aftermarket partners and participants. Instead of creating machines that are cost prohibitive, SnowTech editors have decided to take the route of building machines that appeal to a broader range of riders, providing sledders with great ideas and suggestions for modifications and additions that they can make to their own snowmobiles.
“There are so many parts and accessories to choose from. We’ll help take the guesswork out of what works and what doesn’t, giving riders expert suggestions on what they can do to their sled and the results they can expect”, adds Beilke. “Each accessory we add will be carefully selected for both function and appearance, giving us a machine that not only performs at a higher level but is customized and gives owners even more pride in their investment. Knowing that each item featured is ‘SnowTech Tested’ gives them peace of mind that the parts are performance tested and quality assured.”
