I know, I know....  But I seriously might try a Polaris on the next go around due to these kind of changes.   This is the nature of how it works... You're number 1 so you start cutting costs until enough people go buy something else with a perceived better value.

Cocky pricing, cheap shocks, and early Spring Order limit date.  It's like they WANT us to go buy a sled from Polaris.

They know they got us by the spheres with the motor.

I don't think the rear shocks on the xrs have rebound either. My buddy's 2020 xrs doesn't have rebound on the rear shocks either

Spec sheet says HPG (not the rebuildable HPG Plus).

I believe the 2020 and older XRS models hand adjustable rebound on the front ski shocks.

Most Polarisk "performance" models have Walker Evans shocks with at least adjustable compression dampening.

 

The Polarisk XCR models even give you high and low speed adjustable compression dampening, whereas the Ski-Doo XRS only offers you low speed adjustable compression dampening.

 

With Ski-Doo, for the most part, you have to must the top-shelf XRS in order to get any adjustable compression dampening.

 

And yes, I realize that Walker Evans shock quality is not the same as the KYB Pros on the XRS, but at least Polaris doesn't make to buy XCR to get adjustable compression dampening or even a rebuildable shock.

And there lies the magic word..."precieved" better value which is determined by the consumer.

I was in the same boat as you until l took a test ride, did some research, considered the pros and cons and was honest with myself.

I just couldn't move to a Polaris for several reasons that l'm sure nobody here cares to read about but if the shocks were the ONLY thing that was making me look over the fence at this point, l'd upgrade the shocks and stay with Ski-Doo.

With that said, l honestly don't have any issues with the shock package for the trail conditions l encounter 99.9% of the time on my X sleds which is why l'm hesitant to drop the coin on aftermarket shocks...

yes on the the ski shocks only. 2021 and 2022 no adjustable rebound on any of the 4 shocks. Once again I'll be putting Elkas on my new sled.

Only the TNT shocks have changed for 2022 - they been down-graded to the standard HPGs.

 

The shocks on the 2022 MXZX are the same as they've been since 2019.

 

The shocks on the 2022 XRS are the same as last years.

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level. But darn, the 900T is Bad to The Bone! 

No Need to Freeze-buy a set of these! http://www.coldguards.com/
