The 2018 Polaris 600 Switchback XCR, officially, at least, according to Polaris marketing-speak is designed “… for extreme performance riders that need to dominate tough terrain at high speeds.” It’s also spec’d with race-ready components such as heavy-duty, reinforced rail beams and the same side-vented racing brake seen on the 2017 Rush XCR.
As veteran riders with decades of experience, but with an appreciation for the fact that most of the ride-review sleds presented at the annual test session are either limited pilot build or straight out prototypes worth many times their ultimate in-season retail price, we tend to take it easier than the factory riders. Fortunately for us, Polaris assigned riders to travel with us for photo purposes and to answer questions that might arise as we rode their models. These guys didn’t baby their mounts and showed us in no uncertain terms the XCR’s capabilities, which are impressive.
Snowmobile.com offers viewers the highest quality snowmobile reviews available anywhere. You simply cannot find a better resource for reviews of all the latest and greatest sleds from Ski-Doo, Polaris, Arctic Cat and Yamaha. Whether you enjoy the cruising down the world’s best snowmobile trails or favor testing your mettle in the deep powder of the mountains, Snowmobile.com has got you covered.
One of the wildest things I have seen was this new 2017 Polaris Turbo get raced at the Southern Rock Race at Stony Lonesome Offroad Park. This thing took an absolute beating before the front driveshaft broke but that didn’t stop him from giving it hell until it wouldn’t go anymore.

New 2017 Polaris® 800 PRO-RMK® 155 2.6″ Series 6.0 Snowmobile For Sale near Salt Lake City and Logan, Utah
LIGHTEST. STRONGEST MOST FLICKABLE.
Features may include:
• Patented Raised AXYS® RMK® Chassis
The AXYS® RMK® features a patented, raised chassis that increases clearance and reduces drag to keep you on top of the snow. This new chassis, purpose built for mountain riding, allows for improved sidehilling, faster and easier climbing, and instantaneous lift allowing the sled to pop onto the snow faster. The aluminum overstructure is lightweight and durable for all types of riding. Taller spindles increases clearance to reduce drag.
• Rear Suspension
The lightweight, rigid rear suspension design features revised geometry to control pitch. This improves weight transfer, delivering better control and a more compliant ride. The rigid suspension delivers power directly to the snow. Off-trail, riders will notice improved weight transfer while maintaining the approach angle. On-Trail, riders will notice a more compliant and comfortable ride. The rear suspension features a new rail design that helps lift the rear skid while driving it forward.
• Proven 800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine
Developed in conjunction with the AXYS platform, the proven 800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine delivers +10% increase in power-to-weight ratio and quicker throttle response to generate instantaneous lift. This is the same 800 H.O. engine released with great success in the 2015 Polaris RUSH and Switchback models, and has been proven through 100,000+ field testing miles.
• 3-Stage Electronically-Controlled Exhaust Valves
3-stage electronically-controlled exhaust valves provide improved running quality, crisper throttle response, smoother idle and improved fuel economy. The active feedback for the exhaust valve position provides more accurate fueling in transient situations. These exhaust valves also improve combustion stability, leading to improved durability and engine life.
• Electronic Oil Pump
Electronic oil pump eliminates power-robbing gear drive – and provides more precise, improved oil delivery for performance and durability as well as a 35% reduction in throttle effort. Requires no adjustments.
• High-Efficiency Intake and Exhaust
New porous intake duct material and high-flow exhaust system create a better breathing engine package for more power. An all-new silencer provides reduced sound levels. Vforce reeds provide improved performance, throttle response and reed durability.
• VForce Reeds
Provide improved performance, throttle response, and reed durability.
• Lightweight Crankshaft
Lightweight crankshaft weighs 2.5 lbs less, delivering 25% lower inertia and quicker throttle response and spooling. This provides improved acceleration. Designed and engineered specifically for the 800 Cleanfire® H.O. Engine for increased durability, this same lightweight crankshaft is used in Polaris Race sleds since the 2013-14 and 2014-15 season, showing it’s proven durability.
• 800 H.O. Grooved Piston
New grooved piston was designed specifically for the new 800 HO Cleanfire® Engine to increase durability and engine life.
