Polaris is after the brightest star in the Ursa Minor constellation, AKA: the North Star. Capturing this celestial spirit and In Win’s motto: “Contemporary & Innovative “, our designers fuse the concepts to establish our Polaris case fans. The embedded LEDs in the center of the fan creates a beautiful radiant display.

During Exercise NIHILO SAPPER 2016, the 4 Engineer Support Regiment completed two major construction projects and a renovation. The two major building projects were the construction of a 45 metre ACROW bridge that spans the Tetagouche River and the clearance of more than three kilometres of trail, both of which will be used by all-terrain vehicle, snowmobiles and hikers. They also completed a major renovation on a local snowmobile club. This valuable hands-on technical construction training provides Combat Engineers with the necessary skills that are used to build and maintain facilities in support of Canadian Armed Forces operations in Canada and around the world.
Projets de construction
Durant l’exercice NIHILO SAPPER 2016, le 4e Régiment d’appui du génie a effectué deux projets de construction et un projet de rénovation majeurs. Il a notamment construit un pont ACROW de 45 mètres qui enjambe la rivière Tetagouche et il a aménagé plus de trois kilomètres de sentiers, qui seront utilisés par les véhicules tout-terrain, les motoneiges et les randonneurs pédestres. Le Régiment a également réalisé un important projet de rénovation dans un club de motoneige de la région. Cette formation pratique sur la construction a permis aux représentants du Génie de combat d’acquérir les compétences nécessaires utilisées pour bâtir et entretenir les installations à l’appui des opérations des Forces armées canadiennes au Canada et partout dans le monde.

Direct from a futuristic movie set, the 2015 Polaris Slingshot is a 2-seat, 3-wheel wonder. It’s classified as a motorcycle, but it’s not. It’s a 4-cylinder, 5-speed trike with 176 horsepower. It casts a unique design on the road. The Polaris doesn’t have doors or a roof. There’s no climate control, nor airbags. If you’d like a windshield, a small one is optional.
The Polaris Slingshot weighs 1,725 pounds. It’s a minimalist approach to transportation for anyone who wants to try something new and exciting. It defines fun on the road. It’s for anyone who’s considered trying a Harley Davidson but isn’t all that keen on the idea and who’s decided three wheels is a better approach.
It’s not mandatory to hang upside down or spin out of control, but the Polaris Slingshot has a similar allure to a new carnival ride. It’s loose, wild and different. Why not give it a try? It’s a motorized vehicle for a driver with daredevil traits. It’s for anyone whose idea of a good time on wheels is embracing the spirit of adventure.
Piloting a Polaris is obviously different than driving a car. There’s only one rear wheel, so the automatic sense of stability isn’t there. Oh, well, who needs it? The Polaris offers a flexible ride, and your rate of speed will seem faster than it is, thanks to the vehicle’s openness and unique tripod approach. The Polaris can complete the 0-60 mph standard in 5.1 seconds. It cracks the quarter-mile in 13.6 seconds.
Those times aren’t particularly impressive for sports cars or motorcycles, but the Polaris doesn’t care. It’s too busy setting its course. It gives occupants a good haul for their money. It’s a simple and simultaneously complex machine built to give side-by-side riders a good chunk of open-air fun.
Despite its overall simplicity, the Polaris doesn’t compromise on safety and basic technology. On the contrary, the three-wheel creation includes manually adjustable seats, with three-point safety belts. There’s a backup camera, a six-speaker stereo system, and a waterproof infotainment center. Its features also include Bluetooth connectivity, LED taillights, electronic stability control, projector beam headlights and LED taillights.
And there are other considerations. The Polaris Slingshot doesn’t have a heater or an air conditioner. Any thought of staying dry in inclement weather is foolish. The autocycle is loud, and every twist, turn or bump is heartily felt. It’s all part of the experience — if you like that sort of thing.
Finally, don’t expect to drive the Polaris Slingshot without attracting attention. It’s a conversation piece on wheels, an extrovert’s nirvana.
