Great looking sleds, it seems like there is a need for youth machines. Like everything , this economy will dictate a lot on there success.

Sure hope they are value priced! Maybe they are funded by the Obama stimulus package!

Ie; Chinese powered sled put together in USA. I can almost guarantee they are using those Chinese no-name motors that are getting imported on all those junk 4-wheelers. Good luck EVER finding parts for them. I stopped working on those POS 4-wheelers.

You could be right.But if that where the case I would think the sled mags would have taken a crap on them.....

I have spoken to the owner and developer of these sleds. He informed me that they are using an engine from Europe, not China. I asked that direct question. The liquid cooled motor has a radiator and an electrical fan. He felt that since this is a smaller sled, designed for pre teens and smaller people that it would be better to run a fan instead of intercoolers.

The video of the young lady is of his 9-year old daughter driving the sled. This is not for your typical adult, he designed this for "Tweeners" people who are not strong enough for a full size sled and too large for the 120's. The liquid cooled sled will do about 40 MPH from what he told me and the fan cooled will do about 35 MPH. He has contracted with a dealer in Epping NH to sell the sled.

We must fathom the depth of the hypocrisy that Congress wants every citizen to prove they are insured, but not everyone has to prove they are citizens.

SEG, I think they should send a couple for the boys to try for the winter. With the miles you guys put on it would be a test and who better test one then someone who repairs sleds.

A Saturday afternoon trip up the Rec. trail will be the true durability test of that sled , even at 30 mph. :drinks

They did in their FAQ....

"Question: Who makes the engines?

"Answer: We co-designed the engines for our models with a company overseas where they are built and branded under Premier. We do not release any supplier information for competitive reasons, but to clarify our engines are NOT made in China, and are made for us by a major world-wide company with a great reputation for quality."

Be interesting how they ride and if they catch on with family's for younger riders. The price point seems really good.

Nothing on the site says the engines are made in Europe, either.....

I had a look at one of those sleds at the Stratham fair the other day. Not a bad looking little sled, did'nt get the hood open or sit on it as it was up on hay bales. Seemed to have some good features , price I think was around $3,700. It was a dealer in Epping that had the display. Great size for a kid.
