Today's true 50-50 crossover rider dreams of carving powdery meadows one hour, and racking up big miles the next. The definition of a good ride can be found in the adventures waiting to be had in undiscovered destinations. Ski-Doo Backcountry snowmobiles are the no-compromise sleds that today's adventure-seeking crossover riders deserve.
The True 50/50 Crossover
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
850 E-TEC & 600R E-TEC
Power that Drives You
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.
KYB Pro Shocks
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 CONTROL AND CARVING
cMotion Rear Suspension
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.
RAS 3 Crossover Front Suspension
Similar geometry and steering to the RAS 3 mountain front end for capability and light steering feel on- and off-trail. Optimized for crossover usage, two ski stance positions dial in handling: 40.2 in. (102 cm) or 38.4 in. (97.5 cm).
Large Panoramic 7.8" Wide LCD Color Display
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.
Pilot DS 2 Skis
Deep keel design offers consistent predictable control on the trail. Wider profile provides ample flotation when you jump over the snow banks.
ROOM TO ROAM
RS Running Boards
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.
E-TEC SHOT Starter
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.
