See you guys Friday morning. It’s been on my schedule since David told me about it last March. Should be a great weekend. Conditions are looking great as well.

So here we are 20 years later! what current sled MFG has a better handling front suspension than the Blade? Karpiks Airwave skid is tough to beat for comfort as well...

Default EPIC Ride

All I can say we had a EPIC Blade Ride with the Karpik Boys and their loyal customers. It was the most fun one can have without getting in trouble. LOL The Blade is a fantastic sled twenty years after its introduction the technology/engineering is well ahead of most if not all mass produced sleds today.
