About the 155 Inch Track Sled
This Polaris snowmobile track length is consider a crossover sled track length, or the short short track of the true mountain family.
This short track sled generally provides greater track speed than longer versions, and is very versatile. You'll have a little more play, which comes in handy when you're working tightly treed sections and creek bottoms. You'll find you can lift the front end of the sled with just a light touch of the throttle and a slight pullback on the bars. This gives you the ability to make split second decisions in tight terrain. However, the shorter track means you'll have to carry and maintain more momentum in deep snow.
Heading for sidehills with soft snow or long, steep pulls? The front of a short sled end will tend to come up easier in soft snow, so you may have to ride forward to help keep the front end down. This helps avoid trenching when climbing.
When you're taking on the harder spring snow conditions, this length sled can build more track speed. While you'll find yourself heading up a steep hill more quickly, you make also find the sled has a tendency to spin out downhill. Rider skill and forward foot placement can help, but be prepared to find yourself stuck in the snow and facing backwards on the downhill.
Known as the short track of the true mountain sled family, the 155 track length is considered the crossover sled track length.
This length track is very agile has a little more play than longer tracks. It also provides greater speed. You’ll notice the agility particularly when you’re riding through the tight trees and creek bottoms.
A nice feature of this track length is that you can lift the front end of the sled with a light touch of the throttle as you pull back just a bit on the bars. All in all, this length makes it easy to enact split second decisions in tight terrain. The slight downside is that this length requires you to carry and maintain greater momentum in deep snow.

About the Polaris Snowmobile 163 Inch Track Sled
The 163" track length is exactly what you need for the dry, deep powder of the Intermountain West. With their exceptional blend of flotation and maneuverability, these tracks are far more maneuverable than the 155" when riding on 18” or more of fresh powder.
This length also provides you with a more stable platform for long, steep climbs, with less "washout." Unlike shorter track sleds, the front end stays down without your body weight having to hold down the bars. Yet at 163", the track is short enough to pull a sharp turn or pop out of a creek bottom.
It's true that it can't match the track speed of the shorter track sleds once we hit Spring snow conditions, but it will give you the ride you're seeking in the dry, light powder.

While these tracks are not quite as agile as the shorter tracks, you’ll notice at once that they are far more maneuverable when you're riding on 18” or more of fresh, dry powder. They also provide you with a more stable platform for the long, steep climbs so common in our mountains.. You won’t have to sling your body way over the bars in order to keep the front end of the sled s down. And there will be less "washout."
This length, however, is still short enough to pull a sharp turn or pop out of a creek bottom. And while you won't match the track speed of the shorter versions in spring snow conditions, it will give you the ride you're seeking in dry, light powder.
