EDITOR’S CHOICE
POLARIS RUSH 800 PRO-S
It’s new, fast, and soooo smooth! True to its word the Rush 800 Pro-S dominates the trail! The folks at Polaris dialed it up a notch in both the handling and power departments with this sled. The new Pro-XC rear suspension matched with the Axys chassis brings Polaris handling to a higher new level of competition. And a new 800cc high-output engine lets you ‘grip it and rip it’! – Ross Halvorson

BEST SPORT-TRAIL (600s or comparable)
POLARIS RUSH 600 PRO-S
In nail-biting fashion Polaris hangs on to our top spot in this category with the Rush 600 Pro-S. A new chassis and new rear suspension were enough to keep Polaris on top. The Rush Axys Pro S takes the award here for Polaris for a third consecutive year in the Sport-Trail 600s category.

BEST NEW TECH
POLARIS AXYS RIDER X INTERACTIVE DISPLAY
GPS guided mapping, vehicle security and data, and Bluetooth functionality are at your fingertips with Polaris’ new interactive dash display on Axys sleds. To put this in perspective, if something were to go wrong with your sled, you’d receive a diagnostics message on the dash, a recommended solution AND turn-by-turn directions to the nearest dealer if needed. There’s a ton of other practical uses here too. Plus it’s well designed and you can even see who is calling or texting you on the display with the Bluetooth capabilities!

BEST NEW ENGINE
POLARIS CLEANFIRE 800 H.O.

To be honest, there were no other really new engines released this year, but that should not take anything away from the new Polaris’ 800 power plant. It is retooled to be lighter, quicker and faster. The Polaris engineers redesigned the crankshaft dropping 2.5 lbs. resulting in increased acceleration. There is also improved oil delivery and reduced throttle effort with an electronic oil pump, and marketing reps from Polaris are already claiming it to be the quickest 800cc engine in the market! In our testing it is neck and neck, if not a step faster than the other current 800s on the market. The Real World testing will come this winter!
