Key Features on the new 2015 Polaris IQ Race Sled

  • New Walker Evans Racing Shock Package
  • IFS shocks and rear track shock are Walker Evans Aluminum IFP 16 Position Compression Adjustable Shocks with Piggyback Reservoirs

  • Front track shock is a Walker Evans Coil Over Shock with 16-position compression adjustability
  • Front track shock is high/low adjustable
  • Clickers on each shock are in isolated positions for easy adjustment without affecting one another
  • IFS shocks have a 2″-diameter shock body, up from 1.75″; the increased area accommodates more shock fluid, helping to keep the fluid cooler during racing
  • IFS travel is 10.3″ (26.1 cm) and rear suspension travel is 13.9″ (35.3 cm)
  • The shock designs let teams make changes quickly on the track and at trackside between motos

128″ Rear Suspension

  • Polaris 128″ rear suspension with 128″ track provides outstanding traction
  • This setup delivers outstanding holeshots, better stability in whoops sections, and improved cornering
  • This rear suspension tracks straighter in the whoops sections, and helps minimize ski lift for enhanced turning
  • The track is an aggressive 15″ x 128″ x 1.75″ Sno-XT track

Proven Polaris IQ Chassis

  • 2015 IQ Race Sled is built on the strong, durable, lightweight Polaris-exclusive IQ Chassis
  • Advanced assembly techniques minimize sled weight and the number of parts used

Lightweight Crankshaft

  • Has a 2.5-pound weight reduction in rotating mass compared to the previous crankshaft
  • Inertia is reduced by 25%, and throttle response and acceleration are enhanced
  • This all adds up to improved holeshots and the engine reaching its optimal operating RPM faster
  • In ISOC Pro Open finals in 2013-2014, Polaris racers grabbed 10 of 17 holeshots (59%)

Premium Brake Pads
