Default Axys ProX or Renegade X-RS

Quick look at specs and the ProX is 30lbs lighter. Renegeade is showing 15" track this year over 16 last year. Ripsaw 1.5 on the Ski-Doo vs the 1.75 Backcountry X track on the ProX. New front suspension on the Ski-Doos. I think the Pro Ride front with WE shocks is the best in the industry.

Thoughts?

I'm going to order a ProX 60th. I've got a 2011 Renegade 800 Etec with 6500+ miles. Been a great sled but ready for a change. The 4yr warranty, -30lbs, LED lights, better gauge package. Never owned a Polaris but I'm not brand biased on sleds.

Planned on ordering a 2015 Freeride but I can't deal with the 2015 color.

116Rob,

Are you concerned the X package will be too stiff for you coming off a standard Gade? Would a "S" in a Switch be closer to what your riding?

The Pro-S is where 95% of us riders should be looking to buy. The boys at Polaris tell us that unless all you do is hit big jumps, road approaches, logs, monster moguls or are on the snocross track, you should be on a Pro-S.

I upgraded my front shocks on the gade to Fox Evol X shocks because the stock shocks were to soft. Also upgraded the rear to fox clickers. Track upgrade to 1.6 cobra.

Again I was going to order a Freeride then ProX came out and got me thinking. Then with the reveal of the new Freeride color the decision was an easy one. ProX for me

I think whoever was coming up with skidoos colors this year was dropping acid at work.
