Smoothest Riding. Most Versatile.

Experience the go-anywhere versatility of the Switchback on the trail or off the map with the sled born to give you the best of both worlds. Some days you follow the trails for miles, others you ride the backcountry for hours. All with the Switchback.

Rider Balanced Control

By placing the rider in the right location on the sled, we've built a sled that corners flat without sacrificing the fun factor of lifting the front end through the bumps or powder. More precise handling both on- and off-trail.

Unrivaled Acceleration

Engineers minimized weight throughout the sled without compromising strength. Combined with powerful engines and class-leading power-to-weight ratios, the Switchback® gives you the best go-anywhere versatility.

Rider-Centric Comfort

With ergonomic controls, integrated storage, enhanced wind protection, and industry-first LED headlights and gauge packages, comfort is woven directly into the MATRYX platform design.

Awesome all purpose sled!


I SnowChecked my first new sled in 20 yrs last March and let me tell you, it’s really awesome! The Axys chassis is incredible in all conditions and it flat out rips! I’ve owned every brand of snowmobile in the past but none of them compare to my Assault 800.
