In this chart, we examine what percentage of sales happened in which state compared to the total sales across all states that completed a sale. No one should be surprised to see Idaho holding the top rank position at 19 percent of the total DTS kit sales. Idaho is, after all, the birthplace of this innovative product. DTS kit purchases are resonating from its point of origin. Nearly all of the states surrounding Idaho rank 7 percent or higher for their percentage of total DTS kit sales. Montana and Utah hold 16 percent of sales, equally. Colorado and Washington con- sumed 9 percent each, while Oregon sold 7 percent. Of the states surrounding Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada are registering sales, though they consumed less than 1 percent of the total. While most purchases are happing in the West, sales are trickling across the upper Mid- west and Northeast regions.

Not far behind KTM was Yamaha, outfitted by 33 percent of the kits. At 12 percent, Kawasaki ranks third in DTS kit installations.

TIMBERSLED REVEALS TRIO FRONT SHOCK Timbersled has launched its all-new TRIO front shock. A first in the industry, the innovative TRIO system provides the ultimate in control and handling. TRIO provides improved control, han- dling and comfort due to the shock's dual-rate air spring that provides indefinite adjustability for all riding levels, terrain or personal style. The shock also counters rider fatigue by eliminating bottom- ing out and decreasing diving, and minimizes impact to the ski due to increased lower fork protection. The quick-and-easy, bolt-on design means more time is spent on the trails and backcountry than in the garage. A full install can be done in less than 30 minutes, making the conversion to-and-from dirt to snow and back even easier. The system is also cost effective, as the stock forks no longer must be retuned or rebuilt — saving more than $500 the first year. TRIO is compatible with all snow bike kits as long as the ARO spindle and ski are used. It also attaches to most brands of dirt bikes. The system retails for $899.99 and requires an install kit depending on bike type. It will be available at Timbersled deal- erships in September. RIDE COMMAND APP UPDATES The Ride Command app from Polaris revolutionizes the snowmobiling experi- ence by connecting riders with friends, their sled and their device.

More than 200,000 snowmo- bile and off-road enthusiasts used Ride Command last year, generat- ing more than 3 million engage- ments.
