i've used a Cutler can on my 20 alpha and also 19 alpha as well as previous m-8 sleds....good product, never cracked, no bogs due to fueling, etc....no bogs due to deep snow....not too loud....no problem recommending this can..and i think the price is $299.

I use the bdx. They are light and not loud. Two choices stainless and titanium. Might still get in on the weekend deal. I think it was 220 for the stainless and 320 for the titanium right at two pounds
The top of the line would be a diamond s which is pretty light, very quiet, but super expensive like 600 bux
The ggb is the cheapest cause all it is is a steel pipe. they are ear piercing loud and cheap.

I have the SLP on mine. i ride in noise sensitive area and the SLP has a great low end tone without being too loud @ WOT. I have several other Acender owner firneds who run them as well and love em.

I would probably say it comes down to a individuals budget. I started with a mbrp mountain can on my 19. Ran good but was really loud. I finally pulled the trigger on a diamond s titanium can (they are spendy) but I did not look back. It's the lightest can on the market, which personally I believe should be anyone's primary goal in running a can (shedding weight). Yeah, I get loud cans sound cool... but it's more about letting your riding do the talking, rather than the noise you can make. Most can's actually make a sled lose power versus gain. I felt the diamond s made the sled run a little stronger than mbrp can did. I'd still be running it if I didn't go to a turbo. Definitely worth looking into. Otherwise I've had good luck with HPS as well.

I really liked the sound of my GGB mountain can. I had every intention on getting another until I heard that some experienced bogging with the new engine. The less I spend the better, especially if the wife gets involved...
I really like the looks of what HPS has done as well.

GGB Mountain on my 2018 High Country had bad bogging problems two winters ago in Cooke City. Cat did reflash the ECU, but I haven't been back at elevation to see if there was a difference. I can't definitively say it was due to the GGB exhaust.

I'm running the HPS on my 19 alpha looks nice definitely makes the front end lighter feels like a little more power but that could just be the rumble effect, doesn't bog at all, deep throaty sound at Idle ,not to loud for rider at w.o.t , but your buddies no where your at for sure. My only complaint would be on the trail at a consistent 6000 rpm range it has a pretty consistent resonation that gets annoying after a while making me think of putting the stock suit case back in if I had to ride trail very much, thankfully that's not the case, just my 2cents worth, otherwise performs quite well.
