2016 Ski-Doo Summit SP Features and Benefits:

tMotion Rear Suspension

The tMotion flexes laterally, reducing the effort to initiate a roll, due to a ball joint at the center hinge between the rear arm and drop link and split flat-tube front arms. Very progressive motion ratio makes the ride on trails even more comfortable.

REV-XM body style

Summit-specific side panels are powderdynamically designed to glide smoothly through snow in any position, easing roll-up and sidehilling.

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. Reduces weight by 1.76 lb (0.8 kg).

FlexEdge Track

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.

REV-XM running boards

Massive, strategically shaped openings keep the boards clear. A tall extruded edge adds stiffness and has aggressive boot grips.

REV-XM cockpit

We designed the cockpit around mountain riders like you: the gauge is mounted flat, switches are moved to the console, buttons are shielded from accidental activation and the grab handle is rigid and shaped to your hand. Every surface of the seat is sculpted for powder gymnastics.

Glove box

Keep your important items within easy reach in this new 1 gal/4 L glove box. Warmed by the engine compartment, it’s a great place for spare gloves or goggles.

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.

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.

ROTAX 800R E-TEC Engine

This revolutionary direct-injection two-stroke allows monster power, yet smooth, linear and manageable.

And thanks to proven E-TEC technology, it has virtually no smoke or smell – especially at start and idle – and starts on the first pull, every time.

Quotes

“The 2016 Summit enjoys an expansion of the T3 package to all Summit X models as well as a Summit SP with T3. To make Ski-Doo popular with snowboarders, there is a Summit Burton package based on the Summit SP 154, which can effectively replace the chairlift or get you places beyond the lifts.

For 2016 there will be five Summit models, that includes a Spring Only buy of Summit X with premium shocks, Pilot DS3 skis, the T3 package and choice of PowderMax with FlexEdge track in three lengths – 154, 163 0r 174. The Summit SP with T3 is an in-season model and offers FlexEdge traction with tMotion suspension. The base Summit SP comes with 2.5-inch track lugs and tMotion suspension and high-pressure gas shocks. The Summit Sport offers a value option for powder hounds that is based on the REV-XP chassis but features FlexEdge traction and narrow ski stance. Rounding out the Summit choices is the Summit Burton.” ----- Snowmobile

“Last spring, Ski-Doo made a big splash by introducing longer, more aggressive and full-featured T3 package Summits. For 2016, the T3 benefits move deeper into the Summit lineup for all-season availability. Also, a new Summit Burton model is aimed at attracting more skiers and snowboarders, while Freeride models get a new color and a new front end.

For next winter, all Summit X models plus the new Summit SP 800R E-TEC with T3 will come with a PowderMax FlexEdge track hosting huge 3-inch lugs – whether in 154-, 163- or 174-inch lengths. The T3 combo also gets those buyers the 7-tooth drive sprocket, Pilot DS 3 skis, RAS 2 front suspension geometry, standard ice scratchers and weight saving in various locations, including the chaincase.

There still is a standard Summit SP model without T3, available in 146-, 154- and 163-inch track lengths with 2.5-inch lugs, and with a 600 or 800 E-TEC engine. Their notable upgrade is the switch to the RAS 2 front suspension geometry. Summit Sport models, with either a 600 or 800R PowerT.E.K. carbureted engine, get upgraded running boards with wide snow evacuation holes for the new year.

New for 2016 is the Summit Burton model, part of an on-going cross-promotion between Ski-Doo and Burton Snowboards. It is essentially a Summit SP 154 model with a two-passenger seat (without a backrest – just a grab strap) and a side-mounted snowboard/ski rack on the left side.” ----- SnowGoer
