New sled for a small adult

6 posts in this topic

My wife is looking for a new sled. She's 4' 11" tall. Any suggestions as far as comfort and fit? The sled will primarily be used for trail riding. Thanks for any input.

Trail riding=speeds=motor size=sled type? 340-440-550-600-700.............

Brand loyalty? What are you riding?

Brand new, or just newer and new to you/her?

Friend who is not tall, but over 5', has a 2014ish SkiDoo (not sure of specs) with the newer riding style and she likes it. It is a 600 I think.

If your looking at new best thing would be go to a dealer and sit on some and see what she likes. In the Ski Doo line the MXZ has a wide variety to pick from with 2 and 4 stroke motors. I bought a new one last year with a 900 Ace 4 stroke motor and it is sweet. Very quiet and plenty of power and about twice the mileage of a 2 stroke. No smoke or smell like a 2 stroke and no expensive injection oil.

We went and sat on some. She got a 2016 Arctic Cat Pantera 7000 Ltd. She liked the feel, and the seat fit her well. It's  a 2 seater so grandkids can get a ride. She's pretty excited about it.

Great. The Grandkid info would have helped as well! :)

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
