2020 600 Switchback® Assault® 144 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 634.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with sled if battery would only start it New assault has much improved geometry in front end. Ride is smooth, new 850 has great response and is more quiet then 2014 model we own. Design changes to allow access to engine are great. Has same problem as 2014 model. Battery that came with the sled would not start the sled at less than freezing temps. Polaris batteries (multiple) failed to start sled in winter conditions. Switched to no Polaris batteries in both sleds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Had a 2012 assault 144” prior to my 2019. The 2019 assault is a total animal compared to the older assault . Lighter , feels more nimble , more power on tap at all times .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely fun, Extremely disappointing Motor is the problem with this sled. It was a rocket from the start, but was using way to much oil and fuel compared to other guys. The top half blew at around 500 miles, and when I got it back it feels very doggy now. Still uses way to much oil and fuel for example I burned a gallon of oil on one take of fuel and I only got 93 miles out of the tank of fuel just basic trail riding. Besides that love the sled to death. When it was running good I could do anything with it. No one would outrun me on the trails and I could keep up to 155s backcountry in the U.P. Its a easy machine to swap tracks on or just work on. Wish it came with built in tunnel protectors otherwise no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier I've been on the wall about purchasing a sled for a couple years and couldn't be happier on finally pulling the trigger on my SBA! The past couple years I was borrowing my father's Pro-S which is a nice sled but lacked the ability for off trail fun. I was thoroughly impressed with the on trail handling once I got the sled set up to my liking, it stopped pushing and rails almost flat in the tight twisies . I was even more surprised with how the handleling of trail in the deep stuff even though mine just has the 1.325" track on it. It still pops up on top with minimal trenching, is easy to get on edge and carve with (unlike the 15 Pro-S). I've never been more excited for the snow to come back so I can really push it and learn it's limits this year!
