The All-New Indy XC

Continuing our breakdown of Polaris’ all new snowmobiles, we’re going to talk about the Indy XC this week. Let’s get right to it. The Indy XC has moved onto the AXYS Chassis, while the bulk of the Indy line remains on the Pro-Ride chassis. If you haven’t had a chance to ride the AXYS chassis, we can’t recommend it enough. Polaris introduced it with the 2015 Rush and Switchback lines. It provides Rider Balanced performance for control, precision, and the highest fun factor.

The Indy XC also features the All-New Pro-CC Rear Suspension, which is the next generation rear suspension from Polaris. It produces the industry’s best acceleration, handling, and a consistently smooth ride. The front torque arm is calibrated for trail compliance without bottoming. The rear torque arm features a torque link and has an optimized position for Rider Balanced Control.

Premium Walker Evans Shocks are race-tested and race-proven, and have improved clicker accessibility for easiest adjustability. The front suspension shocks are Piggyback Needle shocks. The front track shock is a Piggyback shock with a 2” diameter for durability, an improved ride, and a performance-enhancing softer spring. The rear track shock is a Velocity Needle shock that features improved oil flow to reduce harshness at the top end of the clicker.

Storage comes standard on all Indy 129 models with additional accessory storage options available for greater versatility. Standard integrated underseat storage bag provides 1024 cubic inches of secure storage space with a weather-tight design that seals out snow.

The All-New SnowCheck Exclusive Patriot 850 Engine

When the Polaris Dealer Meeting opened two weeks ago in Orlando, it was clear that the snowmobile manufacturer was positively giddy to announce their new 2019 lineup. As the talk went on and the latest and greatest was announced, the dealers got giddy too. The 850 Patriot Engine is a game changer and we’re going to break it down for you.

 

The All-New Polaris 850 Patriot is designed for class-leading durability, responsiveness, unrivaled acceleration, and the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio. An all new belt and reeds specifically designed for the 850 Patriot are optimized for durability and longevity. And even better, this SnowCheck Exclusive comes with a 4-year warranty.

 

A new cylinder and head design are optimized for maximum durability. It is a one-piece head design that allows for structural rigidity, engineered coolant flow, and optimized weight. A patent-pending combustion chamber design allows for complete combustion and ultimate performance through the entire operating range.

 

The new water bottle features an integrated thermostat. This all-new design maximizes durability and cooling efficiency. The patent-pending simplified coolant bottle design minimizes vibration and maximizes thermostat life. It is a self-bleeding cooling system with integrated by-pass for fast warm-up.

 

New engine mounting seamlessly integrates into the 2019 AXYS chassis. It minimizes vibration from transmitting to the rider and provides a more consistent center distance to maximize belt life.

 

A new throttle body and throttle position sensor features a lightweight, simple, and durable design. The contact-less TPS allows for reliable and consistent performance. It is a permanent set – no adjustment required! The Power Boosting Regulator gives you quicker starting and delivers maximum electrical power at idle and low RPMs. The Electrical ECU has a faster processor, exhaust valve control integration, and greater input and output.

 

Customize your sled’s look and get the SnowCheck exclusive Polaris 850 Patriot with a four year warranty. Just a $500 deposit down and no interest until March 1st and no payments until April 1st. SnowCheck is only available through April 17th – so get your SnowCheck order in today!

2017 Wrap Up

Happy New Year! We hope you had a happy holiday season. It was nice to have a white Christmas for the first time in a few years and we know a lot of you took advantage of trails being open. While the first few days of January tend to be a time for looking ahead, we wanted to talk about a few of our favorite moments from 2017.

We got lucky enough to have our annual Snowmobile Demo ride a few weeks late in February. We ran it right out of our back door. People loved seeing our service shop and trying out the 2017 Polaris line-up. There was a good camaraderie and it was nice and toasty over the grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

In June, we had an ORV demo ride at KB Moto. It was a muddy, sunny day. We got to ride with customers, show off some of the cool Polaris side by sides and ATVs, and even took some videos of trail riding.

The end of July brought our annual Blast on the Beach. This year it was a really windy affair. We still had a full slate of riders and a ton of fun. Our workers managed to get a little color during the day and a lot of laughs with our customers and beach goers.

We’re looking forward to making more memories with you all in 2018. It doesn’t look like we have to do much of a snow dance for our upcoming Snowmobile Demo Ride, but we’ll knock on wood and turn around three times any way, just in case. Happy Holidays from the Appolson’s Team!

Snowmobile FAQ

Snow, baby, snow! If the weather forecast has you feeling like Elsa from Frozen, you’re probably getting pretty excited about trails potentially opening in just a couple weeks. If you’re new to the sport or just not sure on some items, we have the answers to all your pressing questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

  1. What do I need to be able to ride in New York?

You must be registered in New York State, even if you’re from out of state or our of country, unless it’s one of the days NYS waves registration requirements. You also need liability coverage on the sled. You do not need to join a snowmobile club, however it is recommended as it takes your registration fee from $100 to $45!

  1. How much insurance is needed?

You must have liability insurance that provides coverage for any one person sustaining injury or death of at least $10,000 and for two or more persons involved in an accident of at least $20,000 and at least $5,000 for damage of property of another. You must carry proof of insurance with you.

  1. Where can I ride?

New York State has a pretty great trail system, with over 10,000 miles of designated and registration supported trails.

  1. What do I need to wear?

New York State law requires you to wear a DOT approved snowmobile helmet. Helmet fit is very important, so if you’re not sure, ask a salesperson to help you find the right size. Other than that, you should wear warm clothing like a snowmobile suit or jacket and pants. Boots and gloves are also recommended.

  1. Does Appolson’s rent snowmobiles?

No, we do not rent any vehicles.

  1. Do I need to take a safety course?

Any person over eighteen may operate a snowmobile on lands where public snowmobiling is allowed without taking a snowmobile safety course. Kids 10-14 years old may operate a snowmobile when they have a safety certificate and are with someone over 18 years old. Kids 14-18 years old who have their safety certificate may operate a snowmobile as an adult on lands where snowmobiling is permitted. There’s even an online course you can take!

  1. Is there any required safety equipment for the sled?

You need a working headlight, tail light, brake light, and working muffler system.

Last Saturday Jim and Jerry took some very special friends on a private ride with the Polaris Demo Tour film crew and some brand new 2015 Polaris Snowmobiles! Even though the conditions weren’t the greatest everyone did an awesome job and it was definitely an adventure to remember. Can’t wait for Round 2!
