Would the kit be accommodating to the Elevate Kit? Or have you guys tested anything yet?

Could you do a consistent tape placement or at least document what you found? The second 2 pictures are both super hard to tell as the tape is floated off in 2 different spots with weird camera angles?

What he said.

It looks like your kit lowers the front end.

Stock sled picks are not from me. But our kit raises the nose about 1.5" from stock.

We've not done any testing with Iceage stuff. Just wanted to let everyone know that there are other options out there.

Please explain the benefit of moving the ski 5” forward. I know some people who have used these kits on the 4-stroke cats and Yamahas and they really like them. That extra 100lbs on the front skis is very different in a mountain sled. What benefit is there on a 2-stroke?

The same benefits that the 4S have but with less effort.
Combined with a more narrower stance and with the shocks in a more forward position the sled won't be pushed back as easily while on the side.
This makes the sled really easy to keep on the edge.
It's also much more predictable while sidehilling in steep terrain.
I have our sleds set at 34.5" ski stance. While that may sound to narrow. It's not. It take a little to get used to it on the trail. But the benefits so out way the drawbacks. There is added ski pressure, but we just add pressure to the centre track shock to compensate. We have some vids on youtube showing how stable and easy riding on edge is with the kit.

You got a real purty chaincase guard son.


That video actually is pretty informative. Thank you.
