  1. How’s ski-doo is made 🐤🐤~🐣🐣=🐥🐥

    You know it’s true!

  2. Wheres the skidoo lovers at btw I don’t like skidoo

  3. Wasup Fool says:

    Dependability is Polaris’s weak point.

  4. PaxterPlayZ says:

    Basically what I got from this is the sleds are the same. There was so many occasions where he said "they both are equal but this one is a little bit more", so ya basically it comes down to what brand you like better.

  5. BraaapLife says:

    Only problem is the Polaris will fall apart from the white glue

  6. WHY does ski doo keep putting these garbage KYB shocks on high end model sleds?!

  7. hotgab328 says:

    Ski doo same old front end intake lets drink powder together and blow !! then lets blow belt and rebuild clutch assembly. I will stick to Polaris.. thanks

  8. Ski doo gets eye candy points…let me be a rest rider if your so confident

  9. Mopar21277 says:

    I have a '17 Switch SP (Assault minus Walkers), cannot overstate how much of an improvement SLP Powder Pros are over the Pro Steers in any sort of loose snow, its like adding snow tires in place of your factory touring tires.

  10. polaris and ski-doo competition is exciting, always one upping each other every year. Polaris got ski doo with the 800 and 600 axys on trail, then ski doo fired back with the 850 and 600r cant wait to see what polaris does for 2019

  11. Having tested both of these sleds the Polaris is hands down better on trail. Way better front end feel, the shocks on the doo are junk not to mention the front end on their new sleds is god awful ugly, but that's just my opinion.

  12. What the heck is mx zed? Lol

  13. kyle ward says:

    seams to me that Polaris won two categories simply because of the sweet Walker Evans shock package. it won "off trail ride" category because of adjustability as well as the "feature" category. this shootout would be some hard to judge if the 850 had a decent set of shocks.

  14. Chuck Beef says:

    I have an SBA. Now i am addicted to off trail, from here i would probably buy a 146” SKS. I used to do 70/30 trail/powder, now its like 30/70. SKS 146 is way easier to ride off trail but nowhere near as good on trail.

  15. Alex Enns says:

    I think you guys do a good and fair job with these shootouts

  16. Panda Deim says:

    Where is this filmed

  17. Polaris makes a better looking sled, longevity.?.? I'd say skidoo

  18. Polaris Tim says:

    Why not compare a 146 vs. a 146 SKS with the same lug? Just not a peoples to apples comparison. And it could of been!

  19. Polaris Tim says:

    Should be a fair comparison, SKS vs. the backcountry….but great video!

  20. Great episode, enjoy the all but this one is top 3 for me, It was a good fair review

  21. Idoter asså ski doo är mycket bättre

  22. i hate Polaris ski-doo is the best!

  23. Tyler Bates says:

    I’m a skidoo guy…. but damn that Polaris wins in the looks category 🔥

  24. Matt Hew says:

    Very insightful. I ride a Ski Doo Backcountry which is the 2015 because I prefer the track. Very insightful and I'm glad that Ski Doo is bringing back the more aggressive track for the Backcountry.

  25. Half Nelson says:

    What about endurance? Service? Maintenance? Stress test them, drive 6.000 miles and see how they perform? I think that would be interesting from a buyers point of view..

  26. Just wondering if guys have reviewed the Backcountry 600 or Switchback Assault 600, it would be nice to see some reviews off the smaller caliber sleds

  27. Polaris is best! I agree!
