I’m looking for recommendations. I have a 15’ SP XM 163” with the stock 8” riser. I am 5’10”. I think a shorter riser would help for tree riding. Let me know what you guys like.

Thanks!

TJ

I don't have an answer to your question, but rather an observation....

 

You might be the first person to ever post on Dootalk asking about a shorter riser.   LOL.

I’m 6’ and have a total of 6” riser with the risers and bars, wish I was 1” less. Definitely better for technical side hills.

Yup sweet spot for me is 4-5" of total rise and I'm 6'3". I liked 4" on my XM's but run 5" on my Cat. To really complicate things the best way to judge between manufacturers is to measure from the top of the running boards to the top of the bars.

34” bar height from running boards it’s perfect. Set all my sleds up that way. I’m 6’2”. Think 3” riser on an xm. Am running 2” with the post forward.

Should add that’s with expert bars. The stock x bars are an inch taller I think.

  On my XRS I went with the stock adjustable with the extension.I'm 6' and it works well for me . I have gone with higher risers in the past and this one seems to work better for me,I stand up a lot and it feels right.If you look at the snow cross sleds they seem to be going to shorter risers than in years past.


There are a whole lotta things that I aint done but I aint never had too much fun ®
