I like the new idea but still the marketing is not great. Personally all the video showed me was that the exo sled has that squirrely feel the hawk does when following a whooped out hill. You need to show it passing sleds in side hills with speed and going in the tight trees with less effort than a sled.
If that's Steve than your forgetting to mention he's not some punk arse kid
In a way the video does and doesn't show how easily it is to rip around sleds . In areas like that I avoid or intentionally stop where the sleds are because I'll tear everything up that their trying to play in because they have to stop and take a break . Also why sleds generally tear up areas , because it's so much work just to move on to untouched areas .
A one ski with some real ponies isn't easy to explain unless you've seen one . It's what the new sleds are trying to mimic .
It’s pretty easy NEWDUCK to make this kind of video with EXO Sled. If we do it as this exemple, some people will just say « bad sled riders » but in fact, it’s way much faster in trees and technical terrains. The only place it’s bad is on hard pack trail or on asphalt. I have a Snow Hawk too and I’ll sell it cause I don’t even used it once this year... EXO Sled is just an other step...
Personally, i'm not worried about going faster in steep and technical terrain. There is more to the dance between man, machine and the mountain for me than just speed. powdermuncher is spot on that i'd have to ride it to say anything really. I know a snowbike is nothing like i thought it would be after years of building false expectations for myself, i can only imagine this is another level of that.
It made that side hill look easy , videos make it hard to see that . A sled would of ended up who knows where . The days of pointing and shoot went away a long time ago .
A sled would of shot threw there or most likely the chances of it trenching a hole , spinning out , going around another tree or making multiple runs just to try and do that would be more like the outcome .
