VIDEO – First Ride! Ski-Doo Summit 175 TURBO!

Mountain Sledder test pilots have had the chance to ride all three lengths of Ski-Doo Summit 850 E-TEC Turbo that will be available for model year 2021—154" x 2.5", 165" x 3" and 175" x 3" tracks.

In this video, we take out the 154″ x 2.5″ naturally-aspirated Summit X with Expert Package, alongside the Summit Expert 175 Turbo configuration—both of which are new options for MY2021. But let’s face it, we didn’t spend much time on the 154″!

It’s all about the Ski-Doo Summit Expert 175 Turbo in this case.

Mountain Sledder rider, Sean, provides the skills and shares his opinion on the Expert Package features, as well as his thoughts on the ideal track length of Summit 850 E-TEC Turbo sled.

If you can’t ride it yourself, you might as well go along for a ride!
