Something New For Winter Riding !!!

I just picked up my Backcountry Tracks. Here's a video with a little comparison of the Backcountry Tracks to my Tatou 4S tracks. I've had the Tatou's for 9 yrs & they have been excellent tracks. I hope the New Backcountry Tracks give me as much enjoyment.

Before anyone wants to tell I should of bought a sled, understand, I didn't want a sled. And I did not pay list price for the tracks. My dealer gave me one hell of a good deal. th_smiliebanana2.gif

I will say this, it's gonna suck to go back to tires in the spring ... tango_face_surprise.png

I'll be doing another video next week of the bracket installs & a few other things I've to prepare for running these Backcountry Tracks.

Now, I just have to wait for it to snow here. sad11.gif ... lachtot.gif

Great video. Those new backcountry tracks look more aggressive and have a higher ground clearance. Did your old tracks have bigger knobs that just wore off? I know you do a lot of winter riding based on all the videos you made...👍

So your quad sits higher now and I wonder how the ride will be with the added height and longer rear tracks. How is it riding with those things? Is it hard to steer? Biggest advantage is getting through deep snow, right?

Very cool, good luck with your new tracks! Looking forward to your riding videos.

Why Thank You Ajmboy ... glad you enjoyed the video. Oh man, the Backcountry Tracks are WAY more aggressive then the Tatou Tracks. Nope, the Tatou Tracks, which like I mentioned I've had for 9 yrs, still look like new. They have very short lugs on them. It's the way they're designed being a 4 season track. Some of the newer tracks have taller lugs, 1 1/4 inches being the tallest until these came out.

From talking to my snowmobile buddies, they are telling these new tracks are going to be like night & day compared to the Tatou's, because that's how it was with the sleds when they went from 1 inch lugs to 2 inch lugs. And now sleds are running 3 inch lugs. They also tell me the taller lug will take more hp to turn in the snow. I had noticed in all the teaser video's about these tracks, the riders are in low range. So instead of riding in high all the time like I did with the Tatou's, I may now have to ride in low. But I already have aftermarket clutches, so it ought to be a blast !!

 

I hope the ride is about the same if not even better. I'll find out as soon as I can. PRAY FOR SNOW !!! I haven't ridden it yet, except from where it was in the video to inside the garage. And I hope the steering si good like it was with the Tatou's. Time will tell.

 

Yes, biggest advantage is going thru deep snow & climbing hills to I would imagine.

 

As I get some vids made of me riding with these Backcountry Tracks, I'll be sure to post them up so others can see what they can do. Wish me luck !! ... HAHAHAHA !!!

Yeah social media has devastated forum and message boards. Im still old school and prefer forum boards.

Social media tends to have too much B.S. on it, forum boards stay on topic.
