Do not know the answer to that as I have not ridden an Alpha, stock nor with the elevate. The twin rails are reported to be more percise, both Ascenders & Axsis. I do know that I am happy with my twin rail enough , riding most of the day in the neutral position with ease , that I may just decide to not ride an Alpha to remain dumb, fat & happy!How does the elevated twin rail compare the stock and elevated Alpha?
I personally wouldn't spend the money on '15.Thanks for the great comments guys! I am convinced I need to try both an Alpha and an elevate kit. I understand that the Alpha One track is a difference maker and it's about the only track that surpasses the 3" Powerclaw in traction but, with a track that hugs the hillside, it sounds like it also comes with some unpredictability and some loss of sidehilling manners. Once again, where my hang up is, is deciding if spending $1,798 on a 2015 sled is worth it. Until I get the opportunity to throw a leg over them it's going to be tough to know.
I don't think frosty's 15 is really a 15.I personally wouldn't spend the money on '15.
You could upgrade to a 17 for the same amount and i wpuld rather have a stock 17 than an elevated and anything else done to it '15
The newer sleds are just that much better and each progress better in years after that. We run a 14, 15, 16, 17 , 19 & 20 in our family so have hands on experience with all of them
