SKS 146 Features

Instantaneous Lift

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

Axys Chassis

AXYS Platform

The raised AXYS platform increases 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.

AXYS Body Panel Design

AXYS Body Panel Design

The compact AXYS body design provides the industry's highest lean angle to keep the weight on the skis and track - even in the meadows - and it minimizes paneling out. Paneling out compromises control and can occur on steep inclines and while carving.

Narrow, Adjustable Front End

Narrow, Adjustable Front End

Narrow 39" - 41" adjustable front end is ideal for setting up for more stability or ultimate performance while tree-riding or boondocking.

Aluminum A-Arms

Forged, Aluminum A-Arms

The efficient one-piece design reduces weight and improves optimal strength, suspension performance, and sled handling. The design reduces unspring mass, resulting in improved ride quality and increased maneuverability.

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™ Hybrid Running Boards

The PowderTrac Hybrid Running Boards offer optimized design with 56% open space for maximum snow clean out while maintaining extreme strength.


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.
