Adding 3 in. (7.6 cm) track lugs and other key technology to the in-season Summit SP calms the entire boondocking experience down – riding is less about momentum, so there’s more time to choose lines and make mid-course corrections. So you can go more places and carve more lines than ever before.

T3 Package

The T3 adds even more capability to Summit X and SP models with:

  • PowderMax 3 in. (7.6 cm) track with FlexEdge technology and weight-saving design
  • 174 in (442 cm) track length choice – the longest ever offered by a manufacturer, and
  • Dropped and rolled chaincase with machined cover and gears to reduce weight
  • Revised suspension geometry
  • Pilot DS 3 skis with deeper keel and industry-exclusive tip extension

3-In Lug Powdermax Track With Flexedge

3-in (7.6 cm) track lugs, the tallest ever offered by a sled manufacturer, dramatically increase traction. Exclusive 16-in (41-cm) wide design adds flotation and traction without sacrificing maneuverability. FlexEdge technology reduces the length of the fiberglass reinforcing rods to only 12 in (31 cm) wide, which allows the outside of the track to bend, further reducing boondocking and sidehilling effort.

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.

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.

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).

Pilot DS 3 Skis

Designed to work in tandem with the deeper and longer T3 tracks. It has a .47 in (12mm) deeper keel. Holds a sidehill better and offers great control. Narrow ski tip cuts through crusty shallow snow; wide easy-to-install extension widens the tip for added flotation in deeper powder.

REV-XM Body Style

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

REV-XM Running Boards

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

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.

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.

The best-selling 800cc engine in snowmobiling*.

“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.

Backcountry adventure riders preferring to drop off overhangs and the extremes of out-of-bounds riding will find the Ski-Doo Freeride to their liking. Powered by a Rotax 800R E-TEC two-stroke twin, you can order the Freeride with tMotion rear suspension on a 146 or 156-inch length track. The 137-inch track version features the rMotion suspension, but all come with the latest RAS2 front end. There is also a Freeride calibrated to sea level for those who like to pound the powder in lower elevations.” ----- Snowmobile

“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.

The Freeride line features huge visual changes for 2016 – the shocking Manta Green color has been relegated primarily to the skis and suspension rails; most of the body and the tunnel is now in Lava Red. The sleds do get one mechanical upgrade: The switch to the RAS 2 geometry.” ----- SnowGoer
