Adding 3 in. (7.6 cm) track lugs and other key technology to the in-season Summit SP calms the entire boondocking experience down – riding is less about momentum, so there’s more time to choose lines and make mid-course corrections. So you can go more places and carve more lines than ever before.
Features may include:
The T3 adds even more capability to Summit X and SP models with:
PowderMax 3 in. (7.6 cm) track with FlexEdge technology and weight-saving design
174 in (442 cm) track length choice – the longest ever offered by a manufacturer, and
Dropped and rolled chaincase with machined cover and gears to reduce weight
Revised suspension geometry
Pilot DS 3 skis with deeper keel and industry-exclusive tip extension
3-IN LUG POWDERMAX TRACK WITH FLEXEDGE
3-in (7.6 cm) track lugs, the tallest ever offered by a sled manufacturer, dramatically increase traction. Exclusive 16-in (41-cm) wide design adds flotation and traction without sacrificing maneuverability. FlexEdge technology reduces the length of the fiberglass reinforcing rods to only 12 in (31 cm) wide, which allows the outside of the track to bend, further reducing boondocking and sidehilling effort.
By shortening the fiberglass reinforcing rods inside, the track’s edges flex when you carve the sled, making boondocking and sidehilling easier. It provides the flotation of a 16-in. (41 cm) wide track with the maneuverability of a 12-in. (30 cm) track.
tMOTION REAR SUSPENSION
The tMotion flexes laterally, reducing the effort to initiate a roll, due to a ball joint at the center hinge between the rear arm and drop link and split flat-tube front arms. Very progressive motion ratio makes the ride on trails even more comfortable.
RAS 2 FRONT SUSPENSION
We further sharpen the industry’s best handling snowmobiles. New geometry and lighter components increase precision, especially in extreme bumps. Sharp new styling, too. Reduces weight by 1.76 lb (0.8 kg).
PILOT DS 3 SKIS
Designed to work in tandem with the deeper and longer T3 tracks. It has a .47 in (12mm) deeper keel. Holds a sidehill better and offers great control. Narrow ski tip cuts through crusty shallow snow; wide easy-to-install extension widens the tip for added flotation in deeper powder.
REV-XM BODY STYLE
Summit-specific side panels are powderdynamically designed to glide smoothly through snow in any position, easing roll-up and sidehilling.
REV-XM RUNNING BOARDS
Massive, strategically shaped openings keep the boards clear. A tall extruded edge adds stiffness and has aggressive boot grips.
Keep your important items within easy reach in this new 1 gal/4 L glove box. Warmed by the engine compartment, it’s a great place for spare gloves or goggles.
ROTAX 800R E-TEC ENGINE
This revolutionary direct-injection two-stroke allows monster power, yet smooth, linear and manageable.
And thanks to proven E-TEC technology, it has virtually no smoke or smell – especially at start and idle – and starts on the first pull, every time.
The best-selling 800cc engine in snowmobiling*. 163.9 horsepower** Up to 19 mpg (12.3 L/100 km)*** *Based on retail sale results as of December 31, 2014. ** Result based on independent third-party dyno test. *** Data based on internal engineering trail testing on a MXZ.
