I will be buying a new REV shortly but am having a hard time finding a Adrenaline. There are a few Renegades out there but I dont know if I need the longer track for anything. Most of my riding is trail in MI. Just curious what the Renegade track actually offers.

It offers a little smoother ride since the track bridges the bumps better by riding over them instead of going into them. And if you get the urge to blast through the deeper snow you have the floatation and traction to do it. I love my Gade and can say that I will never go back to a short track after riding this, it is so smooth it is like riding a cadilac.

Getting rid of the push problem took me a while but now that I fixed that it rides like a dream and corners good also

I put 9 inch carbides on the ski's both inside and outside, a little tricky crossing highways but other than that it corners on a dime now, also raised my limiter strap up one hole from stock, that alone helped a ton but not enough, and I have 2 studs in every bar for a little control on ice and for climbing off the river on the frozen banks and to keep the rear end from sliding out on slippery corners

I had two buddies who went to Gades last winter off of X Revs and both are back on Revs this yr. One of them only rode it once and sold it for $4000 with 600 miles, yes $4k.

A lot of guys love the gade's, haven't heard many complaints on them.

If you ride off trail quite a bit, or deeper snow conditions you may want to look into the gade..

unless you are going are gonna do a lot of back woods west up riding there is no point in gettng gade to ride MI in IMO. I can go any where just fine with a short track up here and we get some deep snow too.

I have a 800 Adrenaline and ride in the U.P. I have no problems with it, although I have thought about a 1.25" track. I don't think that you really need a Gade around here if your sticking to the trails mainly, save yourself some money.

600 SDI X Gade would be my favorite sled.
Gade is little harder to steer, but workable.
Second would be a 121" with 1.25" track.
Get the 1.25" track for sure, either way and stud to stop on the icy Michigan trails!

Both great in Michigan.

The 'gade is $100 more than the comparable 121" Adrenaline model. You can't get a 1.25" track for $100 so you would have saved $$ by getting a 'gade.

I ride my gade on groom trails and it's a blast to ride. Great for the bumps, nice and smooth. It's my first 136 skid and I love it. At times I ride pretty agressively through the trails, and twistys and switchbacks don't seem to be a problem. As far as the pushing, it took me about an hour or so of making suspension changes to cure it. Even with the stock carbide, the push was minimal. I will never go back to a 121 skid!

Also, the hookup from being a LT, and usually having a slightly longer lugs, makes it awesome for racing your buddies. :div20:

My new sled this year is a 02 Renegade with 1.25" lugs. Should be worlds ahead of my current .725" short track.

Its a personal preferance thing and where you ride that makes the decision... but they don't bridge the bumps like many say, one of those wives tales...

speed bridges bumps and in the tight twisty trails the 121" track beats the gade hands down, of course if you foray off trail than the extra length and width is welcomed...

but don't let anyone tell you a gade is as an nimble as the short track rev... (the gade is 16" wide too isn't it?, the one I rode was)

having said all the above, the 121" rev is the only sled that can out handle the gade... the gade beats the fusion (05 anyway) and the F7-
