Not liking that at all. Not tempting me to trade my 2018 BCX

That color was awful last fall and they honestly kept that out of the 4 choices they were thinking about.....

Same. Wanted to spring order but not that. I’ll find an 18. They really should offer two options for this sled.

Someone found my Atomic skis from the 1980s and melted them down to make the new Freeride.

Yeah, Skidoo just saved me 15k without even knowing it with this sled. Must say I am super disappointed with the colors.

Im never one to complain about colours being a deciding factor.. but I'm not going to lie the new BCX XRS is looking pretty sweet in the red AND has most of the options I wanted from the freeride. So maybe its a sign... 

 

Still disappointed as I was set on a freeride for 2019 but I am definitely not the biggest fan of the colour scheme. It is a cool idea, but way too loud for my liking and they made it hard to wrap over it since its everywhere. The new FR logo is pretty smart though. They heard the Facebook F complaints I guess.

 

May look for a 2018 as I loved the white that nobody else liked.

It's growing on me...really, really, really slowly. I bet it looks way better in person, but I'm glad I didn't stay up late for the release.

The BC-XRS; now that's a great overall package, but I'm keeping my Freeride 137" for the next season or so too, and I want something a little more capable on the off trail side, then eventually replace my 137" FR with a trail-mobile.

thats my ONLY reserve with the BC XRS... I was excited to get on a Freeride 146" knowing it would be an amazing sled off trail and decent on trail. The BC XRS is the PERFECT sled for me and my riding this year, but every year I get more into the off trail side and don't want to sacrifice the off trail for the no trail characteristics. Thet being said, I feel like the BC XRS will be more capable than I am currently off trail.

At first glance the freeride and bc xrs are very similar. Besides the c-motion and t motion in the two sleds, what is the difference?
