Two models, the Crow Bar and the CB (Chris Brown) Bar, are completely new for 2018. They are intended as a swap-out stock replacement for Ski-Doo REV Gen4 850 and Polaris AXYS PRO-RMK bars. These bars are 7/8″ diameter throughout, so they don’t require an oversized riser unlike the other CFR handlebars in the lineup.
MY2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Yamaha-built snowmobiles, but that major milestone isn’t the only reason for Yamaha enthusiasts to be excited about their favourite brand for 2018.

If we all did this for top quality video instead of trolling and arguing in comments on video that we really don’t care about at all, we can show Facebook and other social media platforms what’s really important to us.
The 509 Evolve Jacket and Bib use a proprietary weatherproof fabric they call “5TECH”. For maximum mobility, the jacket and bib have been tailored for an aggressive riding posture—they are shaped for the position you’ll be in while riding, not while putting out the vibe at the pump.
Camso has issued a DTS 129 recall for its products made in model year 2017 (MY2017). The issue stems from a number of reports of brakes malfunction on the dirt-to-snow bike conversion kit.

The Elevation Dry-Link is called a monosuit, but it isn’t really. It’s two pieces (jacket and bibs) that zip fully together to form one. And from what I’ve seen so far with one day under my belt (haha), you kind of get the best of both worlds.
A heated lens element is used by military aircraft and is what 509 has incorporated into their new Ignite series of goggles. By utilizing an indium tin oxide layer on the inside lens, the science of fogging just doesn’t apply anymore.
We demand better sleds, we demand that our brand of choice keeps up with its competition, and we demand that our sleds get faster, lighter and better handling every year. Is the downside to this a shortened development time in a race to get new ideas to market?
The Charity Ride takes place on December 16 this year on Boulder and Frisby with a day of coached and guided riding. While instructors Nadine Overwater, Rob Alford, Brodie Evans and Derek Wood will offer tips and wisdom, it’s designed as less of a clinic and more as a day of stoke in the mountains.
