Project CHR

Canyons, Hillsides and Ridges

Published in the January 2010 Issue Project Sled, Arctic Cat

project sledThe 2010 SnoWest project sled is taking us back to our roots. We love gobs of horsepower, but we really love a true lightweight sled with nimble handing. The focus of our 2010 Project CHR (we rearranged the acronym and came up with new words to better describe the sled's purpose: Canyons, Hillsides and Ridges) is weight and handling.

In all honesty, the power of a turbo is sweet, but it does come at a weight penalty. We want to only eliminate weight. And we will add horsepower through a few more subtle avenues.

Here's our shopping list for our version of the ultimate western backcountry sled.
