OK
This looks like a pretty sweet GIVE AWAY.

Come on SnoWesters.
Who will take them up on their offer?

Your Sled Needs This Gauge! Here's Why:

1. This gauge uses an infrared sensor to monitor actual surface belt temperature in real-time.
2. Avoiding damaging temperatures is so simple with this easy-to-read, anti-glare LCD screen and multi-color LED alerts.
3. The Snow Edition 3.0 displays current, average, and high belt temperatures, and updates in real-time.
4. This real-time belt temp tracking means you can literally monitor belt condition, as you ride, by watching out for increases in average temperature, sudden spikes in current temperature, or higher belt temperatures being reached.
5. This gauge is also a valuable tool that will help you dial in your clutching, as it will show you how your belt reacts to modifications or alterations that you make to your sled.
6. This gauge features waterproof connections, making it completely impervious to water, snow, or whatever you choose to ride through.

Ill bite. I just dont think the majority of sled users are concerned about belt temp. I dont think anyone stops to let a belt cool down. And if the belt is getting so hot you have to stop or it is blowing, the sled has an issue that needs addressed. Great Idea for the SXS world tho. This gauge would be more for curiosity than a tuning device for me.

Thanks for participating, and we appreciate the honest feedback. For a few years, the sxs industry has been our bread and butter - a belt temp gauge becomes an absolute necessity when riding dunes. With that said, sleds blow belts all the time too. But they don't have to. With real-time belt temperature tracking you can avoid dangerous temps by knowing when to back off before you smell your belt or it comes apart. For those concerned about the wear and tear a blown belt can cause, our gauge has real value on the trail. However, if you just enjoy changing the occasional belt wherever you are when it breaks - we can't help you there.

Another occasion when our gauge would come in handy is anytime you're dialing in your clutching or swapping out weights/springs. You don't have to rely on what simply feels good when you can see the exact impact that modifications have on your belt (using belt temperature as a sign of belt efficiency). If you see that your belt is heating up faster or reaching higher temps, you can know for sure there is still work to be done before you start ripping up slopes in the backcountry - far from your shop.

Not trying to argue - just wanted to share a few tidbits and see what you thought about it all.

Thanks again for entering to win! Good luck!

Let's see those sleds! How many new entries will we get today?

NEWDUCK 12-08-2016 12:58 PM

Thanks for the reply! What is a typical belt temp you see on a sled? What about a SXS? When do belts fail? Would be cool to have a dual read out to see my chain temp too ha

It's really pretty difficult to give you a magic number, as the operating temperature of your belt can vary greatly depending on your machine, any modifications, the terrain/conditions, and even the proclivities of the driver. With that said, it is the common consensus that temperatures over the 200-225 F mark will very begin to result in heat damage to your belt. (You also have to take into account duration of time spent at that temperature when discussing heat damage/belt life). Our gauges have been programmed to alert you as you approach these damaging temps, so you can back off a bit and preserve belt life. Our gauges will also help you determine exactly what your "normal" operating temperature is, and allow you to keep an eye on the condition of your belt by seeing if your belt begins to heat up faster or reach higher temperatures. This comes especially handy when tuning your sled for maximum performance.

We have been collecting some data from our riders to help others get a feel for what typical temperatures are - but unfortunately this data is solely for SXSs, as we just haven't had time to start putting data together for sleds. Hope this info helps!

We would love to get you set up with a gauge, cause that would really be the best way to get some numbers on your setup. So Good Luck! And let us know if you have any other questions. :face-icon-small-hap
