So does anybody else think this sled is going to be the sled to have to fill the gap for 12/13 thru 16/18 years old? Depending on the kid as he gets older. I know some kids are adults at 16 already. I get that but they are the exception. My second boy is probably going to be that kid at the rate he is growing. As for my first boy he is more built like I was and I was only 145 lbs at 18 yrs old.
More power than the blast.
Less weight at 426 lbs (Blast is 429 lbs)
Narrower front end with the react front end.
Quick drive instead of chain case
146" track with 2.6 track.
Snowcheck standard 4 year warranty. I had to purchase 3 year ext warranty with the blast.
Thoughts?

I bought my 13yo daughter a SBA 600 a few years ago. Some small upgrades and she loves her sled. I put a 146” 2.25” track on it, lightened it some, skis and bumpers. It’s heavier than the RMK but the base 600 wasn’t anything to write home about when I bought this one.
She’s 15 now and for the past year I can’t shake her going down a trail. It’s just a matter of time before she has the courage to actually pass me. She’s tall but small so she loves the Venom for playing on, but prefers her SBA on the trails.

The sled you’re looking at would be what I would have bought two years ago if it was available. I was actually hoping for a Riot X in a 600 however Cat only did the HC in an 8 for this year.

That's awesome. I love seeing the girls out riding. Not as many people think of their daughters out sledding so its awesome to see others think about them as well.
Also good to hear about the 600 sled. My oldest boy might be slightly small next year for it but honestly I think he will be able to handle it. I know a lot of people say the price is high for a kid and they are probably right but the way I see it right now that might just be the last sled I have to buy for the kids for the next 12-15 years. I've got 3 kids and I think they are spaced out perfect that they all move up a sled at the same time. By the time they move onto a 850 they can buy or at least help buy the majority of the sled if they want to upgrade.

Exactly. I’m in the same boat with ages.
The Venom will eventually be grown out of for good(10 years) and this SBA is a solid machine. I don’t expect to buy a replacement....ever.
And I have a BMRT 440 rev with a 136 as a backup for them. That way I can focus on breathing life back into all my greasy triples I’ve been buying lately.

I really want a 600 146 Alpha tho. I don’t know if I could have more fun with another sled. Especially since my riding has changed so much in the past ten years.

My take is that this 650 146 is now hands down the best sled out there for darn near everybody in the range of about 80-140 pounds that finds they need more power than the blast has to offer. I think a LOT of wives and younger teens will find themselves fitting that criteria.
