SWITCHBACK, the industry reference for trail and off-trail driving. The Assault model is the best crossover ever made, with a premium power-to-weight ratio and comes with Walker Evans Racing shocks. Engines available in 650cc or 850cc will be available in SnowCheck only. The XC will be available all season with the same engine option as the Assault, but will be equipped with Fox QS3 shocks.
For the utility segment, nothing new for the Titan, but a giant step forward for the Voyageur. It gets the Matryx chassis with the 650cc engine and a 1.6" track. Polaris has even made a twin, the Nordic Pro, which has a 2" track but will only be sold in the Nordic countries.
And now, the long-awaited moment. It's no longer a secret that RMKs are already the best snowmobiles built for off-road, and the evolution continues. Polaris designers have once again set the standard in this segment.
This year, they are assembled on the Matryx chassis, which is stiffer, 3" shorter than the Axys and the new Matryx Slash, which is 5" shorter than the Matryx. The Matryx Slash platform will be available on the PRO-RMK 850 and Patriot Boost, also on the Khaos 650, 850 and Patriot Boost. It will offer exceptional freedom of movement. The new RMKs feature a new, more expensive cooling system to reduce weight and centralize mass while remaining as efficient. For the tracks, there will be something for every taste and type of driving, 146'', 155'', 163'' and 165'' with 2'', 2.6'', 2.75'' or 3'' studs. The 7S screen will be standard on the Boost models and optional for the others.
