Take a look at this post that is linked in the Matryx FAQ:Just looking for some input on this track from people who have used them. I realize it will not be anything like a well studded track. But for someone who lightly studs a track for safety and trail riding, how do they compare?
All of my previous Polaris sleds have had cobras on them. And all of my future Polaris sleds will have ice rippers on them, if that tells you anything.Thanks for the replies. I have been running cobras for the last 6 years and I think I will give this ice ripper a try.
how happy are you with the storm ? i ordered my sled with a storm for next year and was planning on studdingI had one on my 1200 Enduro, I liked it a lot from a safety standpoint, held up great for 9200 miles, good track for trail use, still looks good on the garage floor. Swapped to a Storm 150 with 96 studs but was looking for more fresh snow capability.
Do the ice ripper tracks mark up the garage floor?I currently have two VR1’s with the ice ripper on them. I have nothing bad to say about them.
l actually prefer the ice ripper over studded tracks for trail riding especially when the corners start to get blown out and rocks become exposed it’s a good piece of mind knowing that your not going to bend, break or tear out any studs.
Following this, I ordered a 137” also with the storm track. Part of me is second guessing and thinking about switching to the ice ripper.Advice needed:
I have a 650 VR1 137'' ordered. I will NOT be studding my track at all and never have. 80% trail rider but do venture off on unplowed forest/fire roads and narrower deer paths in the Valhalla area of Bayfield County, WI. Not really into playing in open fields or such.
I ordered my sled with the 1.5 Storm and now I am second guessing my decision maybe??? I am 6'6'' 260 w/o gear. Fast/aggressive trail rider. Would I be better off with the 1.25 Ice Ripper or 1.35 Cobra?
I currently ride a MY14 800 Switchback and love my sled. I have 12,500 miles on it so that is the main reason for getting a new sled. Has a 1.25 track on it currently.
reed. If you switch. They will have to cancel current order and file a new one. And might possibly new order might not be available to snowcheck anymoreIs switching even an option? Once the sled is submitted to Polaris I was told your locked and loaded at that point.
