2020 SKI-DOO BACKCOUNTRY X - FOR WHEREVER YOUR AMBITION TAKES YOU!
The 2020 Backcountry X delivers a premiere 50/50 crossover sled with a combination of precise, responsive trail handling and effortless off-trail prowess. Riders can surgically dissect trails or dive into tight tree lines and shred untracked powder.
THE TRUE 50/50 CROSSOVER - NO COMPROMISES: Packed with features tailored to the true 50/50 crossover rider like an uncoupled cMotion rear suspension, adjustable ski stance, and ultra-responsive engines, the Backcountry is purpose-built to dominate the trails and deep snow with zero tradeoffs
GO ANYWHERE - DISCOVER MORE: With an optional 154-inch track length, the Backcountry lineup of Ski-Doo snowmobiles adds another dimension to the crossover category enabling riders to access an even wider variety of terrain.
PURPOSE-BUILT - TAILORED TO ANYTHING: The cMotion rear suspension is created with the best characteristics from mountain tMotion and trail rMotion suspensions to make the ideal crossover rear suspension. The cMotion features tipped rails for sharp trail handling, and an uncoupled design for a playful off-trail attitude.
