Ras 2 Front Suspension

Ski-Doo 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).

rMotion Rear Suspension

Provides more capability, more comfort and more adjustability. Separate spring and shock dynamics combine with the most rising-rate/progressive motion ratio in the industry to give the rMotion suspension a supple ride in small bumps with added capability in large ones. And there’s no need to be a suspension guru to enjoy the ride – with its broad sweet spot, you can set it up once and it will perform impressively in nearly every condition.

rMotion Rear Suspension Quick Adjust System (Option)

Running-board-mounted controls for rear suspension spring pre-load and rear shock compression damping make fine-tuning fast and easy, even with gloves on. Increases spring preload adjustment range by 40%, with infinite settings.

New Pilot TS Adjustable Skis (Option)

With the Pilot TS ski, you can dial-in ski bite for conditions or your riding style by turning a knob on the ski leg. It raises or lowers the ski runner over a range of .5 in. (12.5 mm). This thin runner and new square keel design work together to make darting a thing of the past.

The Pilot TS ski is available as a Spring order option with the Adjustment Package. This option includes rMotion Quick Adjust system with no-tool tuning of the rear spring preload and shock compression damping on the running boards and new Pilot TS adjustable skis.

Quotes

“The Ski-Doo segment with the most models now grows to one more with the addition of the Renegade Enduro. Ski-Doo blazed new trail with the Renegade, and they seem to be blazing further now with the Enduro. This model is based on the adventure style motorcycles, where you ride the highways, and then ride the dirt.

In our opinion, this is the most gorgeous sled in the Ski-Doo lineup. It is styled in the REV-XS platform with the 137” rMotion Air Ride rear suspension that can be adjusted in 5 positions on-the-fly right from the handlebar. It also comes standard with the Pilot TS skis. Available engines include the 800R E-TEC, 600 H.O. E-TEC, updated 1200 4-TEC, and the 900 ACE. The Enduro also features the XC front bumper, because you will be taking this thing everywhere.

The rest of the Renegade lineup also gets the same REV-XS treatment that only the X-RS got last year, except the Sport 600 carb. The X-RS package is made for the same rider as the MXZ X-RS, but with a longer track. The X packages deliver better shocks and latest technology for the best in performance, the Adrenaline is the mainstay in Renegade packages with great on and off trail handling, the Backcountry is designed for riders who primarily like to go off the beaten path, yet have a decent trail experience, and the Sport is designed for the budget minded, offering a great experience with a little older technology at a value price.” ----- MaxSled

“The trail-oriented Renegade models follow a similar pattern. Spring buyers of Renegade X-RS models can choose between a 15- by 137- by 1.5-inch RipSaw or 1.6-inch Ice Cobra track, and can upgrade to the same Adjustment Package with the Pilot TS/rMotion Quick Adjust setup. Renegade X buyers have the same upgrade option, but their track choices are a 137- by 1.25-inch RipSaw or Ice Ripper XT. In-season Renegade Adrenaline buyers get a 1.25-inch RipSaw, while Renegade Sport buyers get a 1.25-inch Cobra. The Grand Touring SE also gets the Pilot TS skis.” ----- SnowGoer
