The Riding Conditions ratings are real- time and are displayed on Ride Command for 24 hours to assure the ratings are current and reflective of current trail conditions by default but is only available when viewing the snow trails map. All snowmobilers can use Ride Com- mand. The more riders using the ride condi- tions feature, the better the experience will be for all users. BRP ADDS NEW RACING OIL TO XPS LINEUP BRP has introduced the new X2-RS racing oil specifically for use in high rpm and high load 2-stroke premix applications like the new MXZx 600RS snocross racing snowmo- bile. The new oil uses the latest lubrication technologies to address wear and protection issues while delivering the highest pos- sible performance and works in most every 2-stroke engine. BRP developed the X2-RS alongside the 2018 MXZx 600RS race sled to ensure the oil could withstand the extreme temperatures that a pre-mix direct injection engine would experience in race conditions — something most motors never reach. The X2-RS oil had a head start by using proven detergency, wear and friction eliminating chemistry from the XPS Full Synthetic 2T — and building upon it. The higher viscosity base synthetic oil gives a thicker oil film and offers clean con- sistent lubrication, while the special, unique to XPS, additive package and performance enhancing esters maximize power and throt- tle response — ensuring the extra protection at high RPM and load. This unique blend of XPS X2-RS makes it the best choice for any powersports vehicle equipped with a high performance or racing 2-stroke engine for ultimate performance. XPS is also introducing a 2017 XPS Rac- ing Squad Support Program. Through this program, XPS will offer 50 percent discount on XPS Racing products during the 2017-18 winter racing season. Details concerning enrollment and eligi- bility will be available in early October. PSB Dirt-to-snow system adds improved suspension, stronger chassis Camso showcased a new trail track designed for high performance snowmobile riders, along with a new dirt-to-snow bike conversion sys- tem during Haydays in North Branch, Minne- sota, on Sept. 9-10. For Camso, Haydays is a prime opportu- nity to show riders, partners and powersports enthusiasts how its products contribute to the advancement of the rider's journey. "We're always looking to provide our cus- tomers with the ability to take their outdoor adventures to the next level in terms of per- formance. The best way to do that is to engage with the powersports community at events like Hay days, where we can listen to what they want," explained Bruce Dashnaw, sales and marketing director — Powersports at Camso. The 2018 Camso DTS 129 dirt-to-snow conversion system boasts significant design improvements, including a new suspension, stronger chassis and a better ski for greater agil- ity and performance. Snowmobile and motocross athlete Colton Sturm provided his insights on the all-new Camso DTS 129. He explained how the improvements made on the 2018 model are really pushing his ride further and raising the bar in the dirt to snow industry. Building on last year's successful introduc- tion of the system on the market, Camso also sought out feedback from snow bike riders when designing model year '18 in order to exceed con- sumer expectations. The result is a dirt-to-snow bike conversion system that is more responsive, ensures better handling and gives riders the per- formance they've been looking for. "Camso pushed the ride further this year with a new suspension in this 2018 model. You notice it instantly when running over logs, stumps or hitting hard into uneven terrain," Sturm said. "The handling has also improved with more responsive steering on those awk- ward side hills." Among the improvements are a new 8-inch wheel track tensioner that provides a 2 hp efficiency gain and better low RPM traction control, and new shock calibration for better compression and rebound in rough trail conditions.
