2016 Ski-Doo Renegade Backcountry ROTAX 800R E-TEC
No compromises. No wanting for more fun on or off trails. That’s the Renegade Backcountry’s core DNA. It balances deep snow agility – especially with the addition of the tMotion rear suspension for 2016 – with rough trail comfort and precision.
REV-XM BODY STYLE
Summit-specific side panels are powderdynamically designed to glide smoothly through snow in any position, easing roll-up and sidehilling.
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.
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.
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).
HPG PLUS SHOCKS
Highest quality aluminum-bodied high pressure gas shocks by KYB. Rebuildable and revalvable.
REV-XM RUNNING BOARDS
Massive, strategically shaped openings keep the boards clear. A tall extruded edge adds stiffness and has aggressive boot grips.
FORWARD FOOT POSITION
Eight inches (20 cm) of added foot room up front, on the running board edge, puts you right in line with the steering post for more leverage in sidehilling and boondocking. And you can get radically forward for extremely technical moves.
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.
