No compromises, no wanting for more fun on or off trails – that’s the Renegade Backcountry’s core DNA. It balances deep snow agility with rough trail comfort and precision. With the addition of the RAS 2 front suspension, FlexEdge track technology and REV-XM running boards from the Summit mountain sled, for 2015 it’s even more fun wherever you choose to take it.
Every once in a while, when I’m riding a new sled, I have one of those watershed moments. Last March I had one on the Renegade 800 with rMotion. Immediately, I knew this was the best riding snowmobile I had ever piloted and thus, the best riding sled in the biz. Period.

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.
rMotion Rear Suspension
Provides more capability, more comfort and more adjustability. The most rising-rate motion ratio and longest travel in the industry means the rMOTION is supple in small bumps with added capability in large ones.
REV-XS BODY STYLE
Layered flowing edge design is sleek, aggressive and modern. More rounded side panel edges let you get into a more aggressive forward position for attacking corners. And shapes move air away from you for a warmer ride.
REV-XM RUNNING BOARDS
Footing is solid with running board snow evacuation holes increased by 87% over the REV-XP. The running board edge extrusion – with aggressive boot grips – is three times stronger than the REV-XP.
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.
PILOT DS 2 SKIS
Single-keel with excellent sidehilling bite, thanks to thin outer edges. Narrow and thin, yet stiff. Shorter behind its complementary spindle with flat tail for easier counter-steering and sidehilling.
FORWARD FOOT POSITION
Eight inches (20 cm) of added foot room up front, on the running board edge, puts you right in line with the steering post for more leverage in sidehilling and boondocking. And you can get radically forward for extremely technical moves.
HPG PLUS SHOCKS
Highest quality aluminum-bodied high pressure gas shocks by KYB. Rebuildable and revalvable.
LINQ MOUNTING SYSTEM (ACCESSORY)
Our cargo attachment system is the hassle-free way to connect cargo bags or a fuel caddy to your sled in seconds.
