This past weekend, BRP welcomed nearly 3,000 Can-Am Spyder owners and guests from around the globe to its headquarters in Valcourt, Quebec, for a Can-Am Spyder 10th Anniversary Homecoming Event. It marked the largest single gathering of owners in the history of the brand, which launched in 2007.
Leading avalanche safety equipment manufacturer, Backcountry Access (BCA), has been purchased by New York private equity firm, Kohlberg & Co.
Backcountry Access is well known in the mountain snowmobile market for its avalanche safety tools, including shovels, probes, transceivers and avalanche airbags.
It’s not every day that you are offered the opportunity to get seat time on a pre-production sled. So when Mountain Sledder had the chance to ride the 2018 Ski-Doo Summit 165″ and 175″ sleds (of which there are only a handful in existence), naturally we jumped at the opportunity.
Here’s our take on the new 175″ and 165″ Ski-Doo Summit X Gen4 Rev 850 sleds.
Sometimes the potential in a sled is more important than its actual accomplishments, and if you have enough potential you could win an MLT or “Most Likely To” award. The winners of our categories have gone above and beyond in proving their valuable worth to the snowmobiling community with what they are Most Likely To accomplish.
Riders benefit from being able to quickly adjust their ride between a playfully light and agile set-up, to a more connected one where the track approach angle gets much more gradual and the skis don’t lift as easily.
Alright, so there were plenty of new products to see at the 2018 Polaris Showroom Event. For 2018, Polaris put a lot of effort into the brands under its ownership, and there were a couple of new snowmobile models to boot
So with minimal hype, and minimal clamouring for new product, it stands to reason that in 2018 Polaris would stick to the script. It’s good for the company to make back some of the massive costs of developing the platform while continuing to pump out a high-quality product that it’s loyal customers continue to rave about.
