The solidifying of the extreme crossover sleds, or short-track mountain sleds, as a major segment has happened. These new sleds are more functional in the mountains than ever and equipped to handle both trails and the steep and deep terrain with ease. They are a riot!
It was hot, fun and the fearless drivers of the fastest sleds on the planet showed up to break records again at the Super Sled Shootout!

Long Term Tests

Bullets come in many shapes and sizes. This particular one has a 144-inch track on a tipped-up rail. The 800 Switchback Assault is surprisingly quick and extremely nimble.
Longer than my 10-foot trailer, my wife's car and taller than a basketball hoop! Yes, it is a big, fun sled!
