How long until people who don’t need the lynx start complaining about it being too stiff, not cornering flat, can’t adjust the shocks etc and it gets watered down like the xrs is now?

The seat is definitely way too stiff, it won't last long.

Lots will cry.
Who said it doesn't corner flat?
Rave re has best shocks of any stock sled. They're quite adjustable.

No one said it doesn’t corner flat I’m just saying what everyone said about the xrs. Now the xrs is basically an x package

Everyone thinks they are aggressive riders but aren't. That is the problem. If you don't jump "edit for bad language" and pin the throttle when the trails are moguled out, don't buy the linx and complain about it.

People who buy it that don’t ride it how/what it’s made for will complain.

It’s a better XRS. I see Backcountry sales dropping off a bit.

For the ones that want the Lynx. Wait till they offer the trail models first. Leave the Rave RE the way it is. Do not let them water it down like all the aggressive models on this side of the pond. So wish they released it last year, or I would’ve got this instead of the 21 unXRS.

I’m glad we’re on the same page, I really hope people rethink their spring order choice

Could have used that rave today, the xrs took a beaten. Trails were rough. Had the compression pretty much maxed out and bottoming pretty stead. This sled has me interested, uncoupled rear maybe my only concern for fast trail hammering.

I wasn't paying that close attention to the Lynx release video.

 

Are all Ski-doo dealers stocking and selling Lynx or is there some other arrangement ?

 

I can hear it now "those shocks are too good, why are those shocks so good?"........sarcasm

As far as I know it's snow check only of 3 models and all are the same color.

If it's flat you don't need suspension travel! So it doesn't matter it's stiff!! And soft suspension doesn't help when it's bumpy!  ;)

 

I said it in another thread but I will say it here too. One of the PPS-suspension's biggest advantages is that it is plush but can still take a hit. 

 

Something I imagine we will read a lot about coming season is people wanting to adjust away all the sag it's designed to have. Ride hight is quite a lot lower than max extended hight, (especially for the long tracked sleds), and for the 85% of sledders that doesn't understand that, or won't bother to read the manual, will have some questions. 

 

All'n all, the Lynx sleds aren't the rock hard sno cross sleds with registration plates they were in the 80's and 90's, I don't think all that many people will find the RE too stiff, it has quite a big adjustment window after all.

A Fourstroke is about as useful as a football bat........

Dont worry plenty of tards here in north america wont understand the lynx sleds at all. I think its an experiment. 

 

Wish we could see them in person.
