ABOUT SLED TRACK LENGTHS
Ever wondered about sled track lengths? Here's some help.

154”

The 153/154/155 track length is considered the “short track” of the true mountain family, or a crossover sled track length. Very agile and with greater track speed than longer versions, this length has a little more play, especially in the tight trees and creek bottoms. Generally speaking, this length track will let you lift the front end of the sled at will with a light touch of the throttle and a bit of pulling back on the bars. You'll find that it's easy to make and enact split second decisions in tight terrain. On the other hand, this length requires you to carry and maintain more momentum in deep snow.

On long steep pulls or sidehills soft snow, the front end will tend to come up easier with this length ski. You may have to ride forward to help keep the front end down and keep the sled from trenching when climbing. In harder spring snow conditions, this length can builds more track speed. That propels the sled up a steep hill more quickly. This length also tends to spin out downhill, leaving the sled pointed uphill. Rider skill and forward foot placement can help, but short tracks are prone to leaving you facing backwards on the downhill, stuck in the snow.

165”

The 162/163/165” track length is just about perfect for the deep, dry powder of the Intermountain West. Offering an exceptional blend of flotation and maneuverability, these tracks are not not quite as agile as the shorter tracks, but are far more maneuverable when you're riding on 18” or more of fresh, dry powder. You'll also have a more stable platform for long, steep climbs. The front end of the sled stays down without your body weight slung way over the bars. There will be less "washout." Still, this length is short enough to pull a sharp turn or pop out of a creek bottom. It won't match the track speed of the shorter versions in spring snow conditions, but it will give you the ride you're seeking in the dry, light powder.

175”

This is the track length that provides the very best flotation and stability. You have a larger footprint for great flotation when the snow gets deep, because it's really difficult to get this track stuck. The sled nose won't come up and you won't trench. You won't find yourself “washing out” unless you do it on purpose. This track length - unlike shorter tracks - lets you slow down, pick your route and negotiate tight terrain. It is not, however, very agile. Turns take longer, meaning you make have to slow down and and apply more rider input. The inherent lower track speed does mean it's a bit less nimble. However, it's a very good track length for both beginners and expert riders, although each type of riders will have a different riding style that can make good use of the long track.
