*Backcountry X-RS 850 E-TEC shown
Packed with features tailored to the true 50/50 crossover rider, the Backcountry is purpose-built to dominate the trails and deep snow with zero trade-offs in capability or comfort
Backcountry sleds are powered by your choice of two industry-leading Rotax 2-stroke. Each offers instant response, breathtaking acceleration and seamless power to go with a sterling reputation for reliability.
These shocks are standard on the MXZx 600RS race sled - so you know they're extremely capable and durable for control in the toughest conditions. Remote reservoir design for performance and they are a rebuildable/revalvable. Easy Adjust compression damping knob does not require tools; rebound adjustments are standard as well.
Crossover-specific suspension uses best principles of the rMotion trail and tMotion deep-snow skids for confident cornering and agile boondocking – such as rigid front and rear arms with excellent weight transfer. It also features a rising-rate motion ratio, like the latest generation of Ski-Doo rear suspensions, to provide superior control and comfort. Tipped rails enable better cornering, boost top-end speed and fuel efficiency.
An updated version of our RAS X trail front end for capability on- and off-trail. Light steering feel optimized for crossover usage with adjustable stance.
Optional wide screen full-color display lets riders truly customize their ride from behind the bars. Choose your preferred sled info, and see app integrated information in a split-screen format with GPS, Bluetooth music, helmet-to-helmet communication and more.
Deep keel design offers consistent predictable control on the trail. Wider profile provides ample flotation when you jump over the snow banks.
Designed for aggressive stand-up riding, they are flatter for most of their length, wider and strong. Thicker aluminum sheet (3 mm vs. 1.8 mm), plus front and rear reinforcements to withstand tough landings.
Push-button starting with almost no added weight. After an initial pull-start, the engine charges an ultracapacitor. Pushing the handlebar SHOT button for subsequent starts uses energy stored in the ultracapacitor to turn the magneto into an electric motor that rotates the flywheel, and with E-TEC technology, starts the engine. Eliminates nearly 20 lb. (9 kg) compared to conventional electric start. SHOT starting is only possible with Ski-Doo-exclusive E-TEC technology.
From extreme backcountry to race-proven trail performance, the Backcountry X-RS pushes the very definition of the 50-50 crossover sled. It allows every ride to go from technical deep powder to thrashing the trails in an instant.
