Default Risers

Had a 17 with the 7 inch stock riser and fit me perfect. How much shorter were the 18's as I've ordered an Expert but have a buddy that wants to trade his 18 riser for mine. I believe they went a little shorter in 18 bc people were complaining it was too tall.

As i strive to be a better rider it is becoming clear that the stock riser on my 2017 Summit X may be a little too tall for good control of the sled especially when side hilling. The tall riser keeps my position too far to the rear, thinking a shorter riser will allow a more forward position. Worth a try anyway.

At just under 6'4" barefoot I just know that the stock riser on the new Expert that a ordered just won't do it for me. If my one buddy changes his mind I'll swap your riser for mine come this new season. I see your in Boise, I'm just down in Bear Lake.

Might just take you up on that swap. I have also snow checked an Expert 165 and going to give the short riser a good chance before changing it out.

BTW I am 6'3" 210# and willing to change things up for the sake of knowing what will work to benefit my riding. Have also been considering moving the steering post forward if possible. The Gen4 just works better the further forward I am on the sled when side hilling.

Welcome all comments regarding riser height and body position.

Welcome all comments regarding riser height and body position.
When I first guy started I rode an 04 Summit quite a bit and the bending over bothered my back and the bend I had to do to my neck to look up really bothered me at the end of the day. I just envision that with these really short risers. Stood on one in Jackson and wow, they are low. Keep me posted.

I have a stock riser off an 18 if anyone is interested. I am 5-7 and swapped out to the lower and really like it.

I think once the Experts get delivered you will have no problem finding a taker.
