lostinaction is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Any 163" owners opting back to a 154" over the new 165"?

Just wondering if any previous 163" owners will be heading back to a 154" with the new sled. Also, unless I missed something in release information, it seemed like the track is no longer a flex edge?

Being that the new setup should be a little easier to get up on the snow... I understand most people see this choice as a simple matter as to whether or not you're an air guy, but I feel like there's a bit more to it than that.

Just curious what your thoughts are any why.
Thanks.

The 154 is a new track as well as the 165. Both are 3.5 pitch.


What I saw was that it appears that every other bar is short of the edge of the track

If they had a 154 freeride with the new stuff I would probably switch. from my 163. maybe next year.

I am interested in the 154 vs 165. With the bigger pitch track and BRP saying it shovels more snow and etc, would the new 154 get around in the deep as well as old 163??? None of the ambassador have commented on the differences. Did they get to ride both? Would like to know what they thought? There seems to be a lot of guys with the 155 Axys on 2.6 getting around in deep snow really good, so you would think this new 3.5 pitch, 3" lug 154 would do great

This!
Would love some info on that before I decide between 154 and 165. Either one will be 3" lug.

The oal of the G4 165 is only .9" shorter than the t3 174. The aol of the G4 154 is the same as an axys 163. I'll probably be staying with a 154 because I like the front end kinda light.

Yes we rode both, the 154 is wicked and feels like it rides the deep like the 163 and is smooth, but there are so many differences to this sled it is hard to tell, the 165 was going up stuff the 174 xm could not follow...I am going 165 because of the snow we get in bc and the sled skiing I do, both are amazing options...and both are way better, faster, lighter feeling than the xm..
