With an insatiable appetite for dramatic drops, big air, and an unquenchable desire to go bigger than the last time, the 2020 Freeride 154/165 is there for those who bend the realities of the snowmobile world. Available with E-TEC SHOT starter.

The 2020 Ski-Doo Freeride is for the rider who dares to be different in every way. It can only be found in a snowmobile with features like an industry-defining engine, race-inspired chassis and suspension components, and a look that screams exclusivity

The odometer might read in the thousands of miles at the end of the season, but many of them are racked up without the track touching the snow. They’re often called “air miles,” and the Freeride riders who rack them up are frequent flyers.

From inimitable color schemes, to attempting to ride lines others will only shake their heads at, the Freeride is the only sled on the market as uniquely suited for such a winter experience as its rider.

Whether carving through powder or scratching the belly of the stratosphere, the Freeride’s REV Gen4 chassis provides supreme control on the snow or in the air thanks to its centralized mass, narrow structure and light weight.


What’s New for 2020

  • Updated full-length Profile running boards (154-165 lengths)
  • New Lightweight Ski Spindles and ski stoppers
  • New color schemes



  • SHOT engine starting technology: Push-button starting with nearly no added weight. After an initial pullstart, the engine charges an ultracapacitor. Pushing the handlebar SHOT button for subsequent starts uses that stored energy to turn the magneto into an electric motor that turns the crank. E-TEC technology then fires the engine to start. Eliminates nearly 20 lb. (9 kg) compared to conventional electric start.
  • Electric start (no pull starter)
  • Sea Level Calibration: Powertrain is calibrated for riding below 4,000 feet (1,220 m).
