Features

Features

  • ROTAX 850 E-TEC ENGINE: The most powerful 2-stroke engine in the industry. It pumps out 10 more horsepower (165 hp) than its predecessor, but its responsiveness is what really shines. With the new pDrive primary clutch, it’s 30% quicker responding than the 800R E-TEC giving you the instant control you demand.
  • PDRIVE CLUTCH: A major factor in the quickness of REV sleds is the new pDrive clutch. Fast and friction-free dual rollers transfer torque in place of traditional sliding buttons on this advanced clutch. The oversize rollers with needle bearings, wide flyweights and shaft-on-shaft design emphasize smooth operation and long life. Ultra-responsive shifting, impressive RPM consistency and 2.8 lb. (1.3 kg) lighter than the TRA VII.
  • REV GEN4 PLATFORM: The 4th generation of the REV platform is designed around aggressive trail riders with a narrow, compact package giving the rider more freedom to move and influence the sled. More centralized masses (especially side-to-side), light weight and industry-leading suspensions make the vehicle ultra responsive.
  • CMOTION REAR SUSPENSION: Crossover-specific suspension uses best principles of the rMotion trail and tMotion mountain skids for confident cornering and agile boondocking – such as rigid front and rear arms with excellent weight transfer. It also features a rising-rate motion ratio, like the latest generation of Ski-Doo rear suspensions, to provide superior control and comfort. Tipped rails enable better cornering, boost top-end speed and fuel efficiency.
  • RAS 3 CROSSOVER FRONT SUSPENSION: Unique geometry and steering on the RAS 3 for capability and light steering on and off trail. Optimized for crossover usage, two ski stance positions dial in handling: 40.1 in. (102 cm) or 38.4 in. (97.5 cm).
  • OPEN TOE-HOLD: Enables rider to naturally pivot their outside foot outward in aggressive cornering. (Alternative toe holds available as accessories)
  • HPG PLUS SHOCKS: Highest quality aluminum-bodied high pressure gas shocks by KYB. Rebuildable and revalvable.
  • 15 X 146 X 1.6 COBRA: This track features combination of flexible cupped lugs for superior off-trail performance and more rigid lugs for added traction on hard-packed snow.
