I talked to Dustin Krezonski of J and J Sports, Thunder Bay

The new 850 engine!

“ The new 850 Patriot engine was released  this spring and is only available for Snow Check. It’s been 4 years in the making and Polaris wanted to make sure everything is  tip top and perfect before releasing
it to the public. It has been through so much testing. We were just down at the show in Orlando and got to talk one on one with the engineers that designed the motor. It comes standard with a 4 year warranty right out of the gate, so you know Polaris is confident with the motor. The motor is 9% more power than the previous 800 and very quick in acceleration.”

Indy XC!

“ The new Indy XC 850 has a 129 inch track and will fill a specific market for those who want the standard tunnel. You can add a two up seat that can snap on easily if you want.”
EVO sled!
“ The EVO sled is for younger riders and beginners. It has a 550 fan engine which  has been electronically governed down to a 50 MPH top speed, lowered and narrowed with smaller seat, a longer throttle and you can get electric start. It fills a new market beyond the small kids sleds we have currently.”

How was your season at J& J Sports?

“Polaris wants to stay on top with the best product and service and take care of their customers and get them on the snow or dirt as fast as possible. Snow Check has been going  very well and the season has
been great with a good assortment of sleds going out to our customers.”
