Default Installation and Review: Yamaha ASCENT Track & AVID drivers

A few weeks ago I fired off a couple of letters to Yamaha Motor Sports asking them if I could purchase one of the new Ascent Tracks to install on my Nytro and do a full season review. Well, the weeks went by and I never had a reply back from them.

Then today, totally out of the blue a large box arrives at the office from yamaha with my name on it.

No note, no comments, no phone call.

Just a box.

Apparently Yamaha got my letter and simply decided to provide me with a demo track to ride and review.....






Cut open the top and sure enough.
A brand spanking new YAMAHA ASCENT TRACK !!

Good for you, you really deserved this. So many parts you have purchased and then made a full rewiew to all of us. Tried and failed. Looking forward to this review

Go Yamaha !

Give me a week or two, and I will remove the OEM Skid and Track from my sled and install the new KMOD, Ascent and AVIDs all at once.

Yes, Yamaha came through for us in a BIG WAY on this.
Far beyond anything I had hoped for.

And I really do hope that this track lives up to some of the comments I have read from test riders using it last season.

And if the "Peak" flavor in 2.5 and 3.0 lug height performs just as well, then we might have our first challenger to the "Challenger Extreme" in years...

Killer that you got a new track to demo and write up, I wish someone would send me some free stuff. But my question is how are you going to compare the track to anything since you will also have a new skid which will dramatically affect performance and of course a super charger which will be a game changer. So effectively you will be riding a new sled, at least in terms of how it feels on the snow. It will probably perform much better than before, but is that the result of the skid, SC, or track?
