I had the chance to pound the piss out of one and I have to say that 1" ride height really does makes a difference over my 2018 LTX. Great handling sled. And believe it or not still had the factory Tuners on it for skis.

They were all on a lake as that's all they are good for as many folks claim. You know the people that have never rode them.......

One thing I don't agree with is the 1" lug track. Under heavy braking it was a huge difference over mine. Couple holy shit moments until I got used to it.

Have to agree with you. Tuners worked very well only on well groomed trails. Once we got into to some snow tuners are not that great. Installed some curves today and look forward to trying them out. Rode 1750 km’s last week in Quebec south of the river. Sled handles great. Replaced the 1 “ ripsaw with 1.6 Cobra Ice track.
