Default Just snow checked my 1st Skidoo

I have been on polaris for a few years now and after a day on a 19 freeride I'm sold!!, it took me about 1.5 hours on it before I felt comfortable. The thing is AWESOME !! I didn't want to finish the year out on my axys or pro after riding the skidoo. I ordered a 165 summit expert Black. Now I'm counting down the days for snow.
The rider forward to me is amazing, I could do more on the G4 than I could on my axys, I did not have any problem in the tight trees infact I felt way more comfortable dropping into steep ravines, no white knuckle feeling like on the Polaris. I felt in complete control and could turn and pick a line with ease if the bottom was nasty. I know the freeride weighs more than my axys but it rides like its 100 pounds lighter to me, I did not feel worn out at the end of the day. Thank you Skidoo for making a great sled and thanks to the dealer that let me demo it for the day, S&S Sports. This is my 1st snow check sled ever, I have always bought demo sleds or 1 year old.

I'm glad I kept riding the sled that day, after the first 1/2 hour I almost took it back to the truck. But after learning where to place my feet and and the trick of just leaning, it was a blast. I have a old shoulder injury that always hurts after a day on my Polaris to the point it takes me 2-3 day to recoup. After riding the G4 I was just slightly sore but I could have road the next day. It was just a blast to ride in 1.5 feet of fresh powder.

Have you tried the new "react" front end on the new Polaris mountain sleds?

No I have not, after riding the skidoo and feeling so good after riding it for the day there was no need to try the polaris with the new front end, the main thing I loved about the skidoo is the rider forward and whatever front end Polaris puts on there sled it's still a axys and the do good but I felt the skidoo was extremely better. That's just my opinion but I have never spent this much money on a sled ever but I felt the skidoo was worth it. I did not dislike my Polaris until I road the G4, with that said I'm going to keep the Polaris for a while but I honestly can't imagine going back.

I snowchecked a summit x expert 154 in black. Can’t wait for next year. It truly is the easiest sled I have ever ridden. I had an 16 summit t3 154 with some extras (can, skis, shocks)and loved it but time for new one and once i rode a new one my friend owned. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to ride. Lean and turn. Bring on winter

Congrats, MT! Made the same move to the G4 a couple years ago for the same reason as I had pulled tendons in my shoulders which made riding my Axys tougher. After a day on a G4 I was riding it better than the Axys I had rode for 2 years. Admittedly I'm not an expert rider and not nearly as serious as the Polaris faithful but it works for me. Maybe with the new Expert I snow checked last week I'll get a little better yet again.., fingers crossed!
