Polaris Assault or Arctic Cat CrossTour
Dear Motorhead -
I have been riding a 2006 Polaris Fusion 900 for the pass 3 years and I'm buying a new sled this year.
I'm looking at the Polaris Assault 800 with a 144-inch track or an Arctic cat XF800 Crosstour and can't make up my mind which one I should got with.
I'll be doing mainly trail riding with a bit of off trail but not much and I'm a fairly aggressive rider.
I'm not set on these models so if you have another suggestion I welcome it. Your input is greatly appreciated.
I don't know your riding style however your indication of how much off trail riding you do gives me a hint. Here's my suggestion. Both the 144 Assault and the Cross Tour are more off trail rides IMO.
I would suggest you look at a XF 137 800 AC and an Axys 137 800 Switchback. These sleds ride exceptionally well and are very capable in deep snow. The Cross Tour does not ride anywhere near as well as the XF nor does the Assault compared to the SB 137.
Hope this helps!
