2019 800 SKS 155 is rated out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scuba Steve from Very happy!! I bought this sled 3 weeks ago and just got back from my first trip. It was mostly a trail ride trip in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I was very impressed with the handling, maneuverability and comfort in a trail setting, even with my ski stance set at 39 inches. It handled way better than my previous sled which was a Polaris SBA 144 2.0. We also found some really nice fresh powder power line and off trail areas. This is where the sled really excelled! Very easy to side hill and flick around from one ski to the other. The sled only has 450 miles on it, but as of right now, I couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tmahal from SKS-The One Quiver You Need In The Arsenal Where do I start with the SKS? I guess I have a little spot in my heart for the new release of this sled, as my first exposure to a long track and the off trail, deep snow riding world was a 2003 SKS 800 144. I digress, this was a no brainer for me when it was re-released, and I was coming off a 2011 Pro RMK 800. I live in NH, where our winters are widely variable; we could have 5+ feet of snow in the woods and elevations above 3,000' or low snow winters where you're lucky to get off trail. I ride with a mixed group of riders as well, some love trail, others ride the woods, so I needed a sled that could let me go tear up 150 miles of trail one weekend, and then ride up in the 7,000+ ft mountains of McCall, Idaho in 8' of powder. I can absolutely vouch that this sled meets that demand 100%. Sure, it's slightly heavier than a pro, but it's going to be with the extra cooler, which works excellent. In riding with Pro's on trail, I never needed to drop my scratchers and constantly stay in the 125 degree range. I went with a 2.25" track, which is not commonly seen, and it was the best decision I could've made. The 2.25 Peak gives you wicked bite on the trail for a mountain track, but shreds powder and climbs just as good as my old Series 2.4. Gearing is spot on for this sled, it climbs great, gets on the surface with the perfect amount of RPMs, and hits great top speeds for a long track on the trails. I do think the SKS could use some heavier/stronger valving in the rear to eat up those harsher trail bumps a little easier, but that really isn't a significant issue. This really is the perfect sled for the guy or girl that loves powder and trees, but still may put on 1,000 trail miles in a season and hang with the short tracks! And let me assure you, you won't be stuck in the lower, flatter zones when riding with the Pro RMKs, it hangs with the best of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Serge from Makes ya feel like a pro Awesome first experience.....always bough second hand sleds and when I seen the new style axys come out I told myself if they come out with a MOUTAIN axys I'm buying one.... And then the SKS came out I spring ordered one right away didn't matter what happened in life I was getting that snowmobile ..... Truth be told I have never felt so ALIVE!!! If bin riding for many years around our northern ontario terrain and last year was the first time I got my stuff together and took my SKS for a journey across our beautiful country and went riding in BC....... Wel lets just say I was blown away of the terrain and how I was able to learn more and more everyday how to conquer it with ease with not only my new Polaris but my awesome tour guide/friends from BC we able to give me the experience of a life time.... Hence saying that this guy is now moving to BC !!!! Hahaha yes I am and yes snowmobiling is life for me..... U real how I love my sled ...... Great product guys keep up the great work ... Amazing engineering and great aggressive looks !!! BRAAAAAP

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indy Bush from magical mountain sled With the amazing agility of the AXYS chassis and the great power-to-weight ratio, this sled makes me look great. Playing in the tree-studded mountain slopes is awesome, with the ability to "crawl" through tight spots and blast up and over ledges. Carving like no other. I like the extra cooler on the access trails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Craig from Very light and nimble in the back country Had issue with speed sensor when it was brand new. Didn't work for an entire day. So didn't read miles for a day. Took it out west. Seemed like every now and then when you would get on the throttle hard it would bog out and sounded wierd. Let off and get back in it and it would be fine. It has tons off power and is very easy to play in the back country with

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not happy Polaris buyer from Poor craftsmanship Q/C and assembly At 30 miles, the chain case started to skip and ratchet. Very disappointed, now sled is in the shop and cutting into my allready short riding season. Not to mention all my riding partners harassing me for not buying an Arctic Cat. Is Polaris going to do anything to restore my faith in their brand?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jake11 from Excellent all around sled I bought my 2017 sks from Jackson sports in Jackson Mn. When I saw this sled last year I told myself I had to have it. So I snowchecked it for 17'. I live in northwest Iowa and usually take 3-4 trips a year to the Snowys, Black Hills, Big Horns, somewhere in Colorado, and occasionally a trip to Wisconsin or Minnesota. Being that I like mountain riding the best, I focus my sled more towards mountain riding. Being that I ride rough ditches here at home, trail ride if I'm in Wisconsin, ride a little bit of everything in the black hills, and try and tackle the trickiest terrain in the mountains, the sks does them all every well. With the extra heat exchanger I never have to worry about getting hot. With the extra boggy wheels I don't have to worry about my slides. I believe more midwesterns should look more towards buying the sks because it does everything well and you don't have to worry about anything! I rode 200+ miles in two days of strictly trails in the Black hill that were hard pack Smooth and not much snow, and my temp never got over 128. I rode the snowys this year in a couple feet of fresh pow with 153", 155", and 163" 3" track and still was king dog. (Rider experience is high).
