Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sled. Snow checked the machine, Polaris' snow check program is outstanding, I love being able to change options and virtually spin the sled to view it. Outstanding. My only 2 minor complaints, I added red skis, red windshield, red flat lander seat to the machine on snow check, I'm stuck with the original skiis, windshield, and seat. As a option it would be great to get a credit or some offset so I don't have extras I'll probably never use, and it would bring the cost of the machine down also. My other complaint, this is a premium snowmobile, Polaris please add a heated visor outlet as standard equipment, please, its ridiculous that it's not standard. Aside from that, I love the machine so far. Absolutely amazing piece of machinery. i have a fantastic dealer, Trailside Sports in Espanola, Ontario. The are the best and offer top notch service. Cant say enough about them and how great they are. Cant rate reliability until I've put more miles on this machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised 600 thinks it's a 800 in this chass I can't say enough about this chassis. I'm 49 and with a couple quick adjustments to the shocks I was riding the trails like I did when I was in my twenties. With a bad back I'm going over stutter bumps at 45 - 50 mph. End of the year 200 mile junk-it-run felt more like a ride home from the store after picking up eggs. I have 30 plus years buying Polaris sleds with 121-1.25 tracks, the 137-1.35 track on this machine is a game changer. No more don't leave the trail in this area or don't take that ditch after a fresh snow. And the light weight of this machine makes it easy to maneuver and position the sled right where you want it in deep snow or tight corners at night speed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sled I snow checked 2 sleds in April 2018. A Pro S and an XCR. They did not arrive until January 15 of 2019. We missed out on 2 months of great riding with no explanation or compensation from Polaris. Very disappointed in Polaris. As far as the sleds go, they are awesome sleds. They handle great. The suspension is a bit too stiff on the XCR. The fit and finish is great. I love how easy it is to take off the side panels and the hood. Only had 1 minor issue. The control module on the left side of the handlebars froze up after it got wet and then froze. So I could not use reverse or adjust the heated grips until it unfroze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most aggressive sled I've ever driven! I put my first 100 miles on it and it keeps up with my aggressive riding style and is able to take the bumps like a champ and with the 800 HO is just a insane amount of power and having the GPS is a very cool feature, amazing suspension tuning helps because I'm a heavier rider around 260 because I lift weights so I need a more stiff setup. As of now it's the best sled I've rode!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Finally got some snow in northern Michigan and got a chance to ride. Still breaking it in and dialing in the suspension. But so so, it's awesome. Great power and throttle response

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Handling and Acceleration Although I haven't gotten to ride this one much yet this year it is very similar to my 2018 Pro S plus a better shock package and track!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2019 Switchback XCR 850 Good sled could be great I like the ride and handling. The XCR is a little harsh and I wish I could have a better choice for suspension's the Pro S was just a little too soft. I like the XCR and will be upgrading the suspension. Re-valve and re-spring. I like the attributes of the XCR and with a suspension upgrade it will be top notch. Also please fix the starter it sounds bad when starting up around other sleds and I don't like the ring gear on the primary clutch. My last 3 sleds Polaris dealer had to fix starter engagement. Keep up the good work!!! Long live snowmobiling The great escape.
