"Final Assembly and Quality Control completed by

Premier in Holly, Michigan using Globally-sourced parts and components including US Domestic Content."

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.

They REALLY need to note that on the site...

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.

Hard sell for whom, Not for a 8-14 year old. They don't need to be doing 60 mph to have a good time. As long as they can go across the snow faster than a 120cc, the kids will love it. Both the 300 and 200 are priced under $4k. If the quality is there, there is an invemtory of parts and good customer service, they should do fine.

I read last night the new sled maker Premier will be at the SNHSS snow show Friday oct30th thru the weekend at the ROCK I know when I started out at 7 or 8 years old it was on a 70 ish skidoo, and for years I had a blast on that thing my grandfather always said" If you can start it you can ride it" and he had 150 acres to explore. As the saying goes "boy I wish they had one on those when I was a kid" in regards to the looks and suspension of this "starter sled"

My son is 9 and sat on it. He is not a big kid but a pinch on the small side and this fit him perfect. For a new sled though I saw some good scratches on it, especially around the ignition key area, but overall, it looked nice. :good:
