E-TEC SHOT Starter

It's like something out of science fiction – you just push a button to start your sled, yet the system weighs next to nothing.

The most innovative Starter

SHOT starting is only possible with advanced Rotax E-TEC technology. After a first pull-start, the engine charges a lightweight ultracapacitor. For later starts, that stored energy turns the magento into an electric motor; it turns the crank and E-TEC does the rest.


Give it a shot

Push the button. With the ultra-capacitor charged, your SHOT-equipped Ski-Doo will function as if it has push-button electric start. That means less energy wasted on pull starting, and more energy for riding.

Pull the rope

Each morning, pull start your snowmobile as you normally would.

Charge it up

As you ride, the engine's magneto charges a lightweight ultra-capacitor with enough juice to start your snowmobile.
