Sledhead 24/7 has gone back in time in order to create an awesome short video of the history of snowmobiling! Watch as the sport evolves over the past 60 years from its farming roots into a recreational sport for the whole family and then finally into the adrenaline-pumping daredevil racing and stunts we get to enjoy today, first introduced by the good ol’ Polaris Thrill Team!
This week here in Western New York we’ve been experiencing a heck of a lot of snow thanks to Winter Storm Knife, in some places up to 8 feet! Check out some of the craziest photos people have snapped during this historic storm, and feel free to send us your photos and videos via our Facebook page!
This Veteran’s Day, Polaris RZR shared a video and project they collaborated with a special organization on, and it’s more than worth watching. Warfighter Made is a nonprofit that helps injured veterans regain their FREEDOM through recreation. Now it’s time for YOU to help their mission – If Polaris reaches 50,000 views of this video today they will donate an additional RZR to the efforts – If they reach 100,000 views, they will donate two.
Watch the video, share their message, and help us help those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our FREEDOM.
“XP1K2” is a seven-minute onslaught of intense off-road road action, set in a massive 600-acre forest near Mt. Baker, Washington. The video stars Off-Road Racing Champion RJ Anderson, driving a custom Holz Racing built Polaris RZR XP 1000 Side-by-Side (SxS), complete with a Polaris ProStar® 1000 Muzzys Performance engine and custom Walker Evans Racing shocks. The “XP1K2” crew, including Tony Vanillo and his team of dirt and ramp engineers at the Off-Road Management Group, transformed the remote wooded location into a stunning array of creative obstacles, which included more than 20 natural terrain and man-made works of (terrifying) art. Spoiler alert – RJ Anderson reclaims the world record for a distance jump in a SxS – and does so by clearing a death-defying 100-foot gap!
More than a year of planning went in to the development and execution of the “XP1K2” campaign. It took the build team of 10 more than a month to carve out the heart-stopping playground as multiple obstacles featured hand built “ladder trail” which required two to three days each to weld, cover in wood and secure safely. The Mad Media crew of 40 then spent 14 days on location battling wind, rain, mud and fog to capture each of their incredible imagined obstacles.
