Who didn’t love those “choose your own adventure” books as a kid? Well, the newest 50/50 crossover sleds will let you choose your own adventure in real life!

Three of the four sleds in this comparison are all new, but this is not an apples-to-apples comparison, as the new sleds in this segment include the totally revised Polaris 800 Switchback Assault, the Yamaha Sidewinder X-TX LE, and the Arctic Cat XF 9000 Cross Country. The last two sleds are 4-strokes with 200+ hp, but the new Assault will compare nicely to the Backcountry X.

Basically, we’ll compare two 800 2-strokes (Polaris vs. Ski-Doo), plus provide info and riding impressions on the new turbo siblings from Yamaha and Cat.
