I was told if I didn't double post, my video could go in the General Discussion thread. If a Moderator feels this isn't right please move to the Video Section.

 

 

It is always tough to get over a debris pile. Couldn't go around due to low snow and rocks so the good ol' head down and grunt work begins......

Studs on 2.5 - 3" track? How would that work?

looks like it would be a cake-walk for a trail sled. I'm surprised the mountain sleds had such a time of it.

If the guy on the yammi can make it.. I mean come on.... You other boys need to step up your games. A little commitment, keep up some momentum, and when in doubt wrap it out!! In my 10 years of riding in ak, we cross tons of these every spring and i cant say i have ever had that problem. Haha!! And i have even sidehilled thru debris run outs like this on multiple occasions... Hahaha!

Hahahaha.............do trail sleds climb icy hills? As pointed out earlier, with lots of studs.....It was interesting to analyze the difference between the sleds.

Six sleds in front made a difference and the weight factor was definitely a factor (you guys know how much a Yami weighs but you don't know how much the rider weighs). I guess us boys in the Koots need to come up and take some lessons. Sidehill that stuff? Sign me up please......:D

No doubt studs would make it a cake-walk, but even without studs, I think trail sleds would have an easier time of it.

 

Trail tracks are made to grip harder surfaces better and have more rigid lugs. They also have better lug width coverage in that they are closer to full block tracks.

I also thing think the real long track with no ground pressure is holding them back as well. Your lugs are just slapping the tops of the ice chunks with lugs bent over the wrong direction.

Mountain sleds are specialized machines and you were well outside of the design intent there.

Cameras have a hard time capturing the steepness of hills, I can see that has a fair grade to it though.

I try to tell my atv buddies who marvel at what a sled can go through and over how a sled can get stuck on the stupidest of things as well.

On hard crunch spheres like that ya can rock the sled up on one ski and walk next to the sled walking it over the debris, if its that rugged.. Your t3 would walk right across it with that approach, that yammi would have to work to try that tho... Hahaha!!!

Thanks for the comments guys.  It is fun (sometimes a chore) editing the footage and coming up with 3-4 minutes of acceptable video. I'm not one for continuous helmet cam footage and like to mix it up a bit.
