Ten Sleds that Shaped the Sport

I loved the artice by Jerry Basset on Ten Sleds that Shaped the Sport.

I grew up with Sno Jets so I was thrilled to see them get honourable mention.

Also recognizing that Polaris popularized IFS in production sleds and didnt invent it was good insight.

The only change I would suggest would be to recognize the 1 hit wonders that initially experimented with rider forward positioning, Redline, Blade and the others whose name I cant remember (showing my age I guess)
Ski Doo definately popularized it in production sleds though.

Great article

We'll let Jerry know he was right on point, as far as you're concerned. For you others, you can check out the article at:
