PRO RMK 163 Features

Instantaneous Lift

The combination of the raised and lightweight AXYS platform, a powerful Polaris engine, and the Polaris-exclusive track designs pop the PRO RMK 163 on top of the snow.

AXYS Platform

The raised AXYS platform increase clearance and reduces drag to keep you on top of the snow. It is purpose-built for mountain riding and allows for improved sidehilling, faster and easier climbing, and instantaneous lift allowing the sled to pop onto the snow faster. The aluminum over structure is lightweight and durable for all types of riding. Taller spindles increase clearance to reduce drag.

Patriot Engine

Designed for class-leading durability, responsiveness, unrivaled acceleration and industry's best power-to-weight. The most powerful snowmobile engine ever built by Polaris.

Rear Suspension

The lightweight, rigid rear suspension design features revised geometry to control pitch. This improves weight transfer, delivering better control and a more compliant ride. The rigid suspension delivers power directly to the snow. Off-trail, riders will notice improved weight transfer while maintaining the approach angle. On-trail, riders will notice a more compliant and comfortable ride. The rear suspension features a rail design that helps lift the rear skid while driving it forward.

WER® Shocks

The PRO RMK 163 comes with premium WER® Piggyback Shocks or Monotube Shocks. The WER® Piggyback Shocks with compression adjusters and remote reservoirs offer the best performance across the broadest range of conditions. The WER® Monotube Impact-Extruded Shocks are the lightest weight shock option from Polaris for those riders counting the ounces. The one-piece, simple design is lightweight yet durable.

Multiple Drive System Options

Multiple drive systems available based upon track length selection.

Rider Balanced Control

The AXYS platform features Rider Balanced positioning that delivers ultimate control for the rider for effortless riding.

AXYS Body Panel Design

The AXYS PRO RMK features a compact body panel geometry and design that help give the sled the best lean angle in the industry allowing it to hold even the steepest sidehill lines. The PRO RMK does not "panel out" like other sled brands.

PRO RMK React Suspension

The PRO RMK React Suspension provides riders with the most precise and effortless ride in the deep snow. Effortlessly initiate sidehills and experience less fatigue with the most predictable ride. It includes a 36"-38" stance, a sway bar designed for predictable handling, and forged a-arms and spindles optimized for strength and durability.

LOW ELEVATION Clutching Option

Not all backcountry riding is performed at the high elevations of the Rocky Mountains. Polaris now offers a lower elevation calibration—factory direct—for deep snow riding in elevations less than 3000 feet. This option includes proper springs, clutch weights and helix for smooth engagement, drivability and maximum performance.

Immediate Response

The world's best mountain sled is built to be the lightest and most rigid, making it incredibly responsive to rider inputs. This allows you to change direction and maneuver confidently in all conditions.

PowderTrac® XT Running Boards

The lightweight PowderTrac® XT Running Boards were developed for extreme riders with new geometry for improved sidehilling and deep snow capabilities. The improved ergonomics maintain usable space for the rider and traction at the rear of the boards.

Lightweight

Polaris snowmobiles are the lightest sleds on the mountain. They have always been light and rigid with added strength and durability while reducing weight on the RMK AXYS platform. Providing riders with instantaneous lift, Polaris sleds help riders get up on top of the snow faster.

New SnowCheck Exclusive QuickDrive2 (QD2)

Introducing the all-new, SnowCheck Exclusive, low-inertia QuickDrive2 (QD2). QuickDrive is the lightest drive system in the industry and produces the lowest inertia for maximum flickability. QD2 boasts a 10% gear reduction for even quicker response and track speed. The system has been optimized for both 2.75” and 3” track lug heights.

Additional Features

PRO-Lite Seat

Mountain snowmobiling requires a different seat design and that is what Polaris delivers. The PRO-Lite seat is shorter to allow you to easily swing a leg over from one side of the snowmobile to the other.

LED Lights

All models built on the AXYS platform feature standard LED headlights to deliver the industry's best lighting that is 80% brighter than incandescent lighting.

MessageCenter Gauge

Informative and easy to read, this gauge keeps a rider aware of sled operating conditions and provides a wealth of additional data.

Polaris Interactive Digital Display

This exclusive and industry-leading full color display provides important information and capabilities to the rider such as: sled performance, Bluetooth, GPS mapping, Clock, and LH Control. This gauge comes as an option on some models and is also available as an accessory.

Integrated Storage Options

Optional accessory storage was designed and developed right along with the AXYS platform so it installs securely and features seamless, integrated styling that matches the sled's design lines. Engineered with the highest quality of materials.

Mountain Hoop

Re-designed in 2016, the mountain hoop is more ergonomic and has been moved down 2.5" to prevent hitting the rider in the chest when in steeper terrain. Now a one-piece, stylized design, the mountain hoop is made of durable polyurethane material.

XT Hyfax - 850 Models

The profile design has been optimized for lighter weight while maintaining durability.
