Video Transcription


Carrie Barton: "When you're on the road or dirt, you're always following some other path that somebody's made. And on a Timbersled, you get to decide where you go and that is just like the most free feeling ever."


Brock Hoyer: "It's just freedom. We can go in places that are just really challenging to get in with sleds and access new areas and see new terrain and I think the favorite thing about riding a snow bike for me is knowing that it's been the first motorized vehicle in a certain area. I think the big thing with these kits is that they're tough. I know it's going to take the abuse I'm going to give it."


Gary Ausman: "I haven't broke anything on Timber sled in years they're they take the abuse."


Carrie Barton: "This Gen 2 RIOT 3 is incredible actually, like one of the things coming off of a original Gen 1 RIOT 3 that I noticed immediately was it's actually even more nimble than the original RIOT."


Shelley Balls: "Oh my gosh, the Quick Drive has made a huge difference. I can't believe how much more power I feel."


Gary Ausman: "Instantly I noticed that I could get track speed faster and in a climb I was holding RPMs longer into the climbs."


Carrie Barton: "I immediately noticed that some of the bikes were riding better on the trail. I was able to go faster and push the turns and I wasn't feeling that chatter. I just felt more in control and then I found out later that they had that new ski rubber on him and I was like "oh, okay that makes sense now.""


Brock Hoyer: "Ski felt a lot more on edge and controllable. As soon as we left the trailers, instantly just felt the narrow rails, the playfulness."


Carrie Barton: "The transitions are a lot smoother. You got a lot more side grip because of those narrow rails in that new track and that bite."


Gary Ausman: "So, the difference is between the RIOT and ARO, the ARO is a little more compliant as far as less rider input required."


Carrie Barton: "So, the best suspension for the people that want to huck and do crazy stuff are just a starter kit to get somebody going in the sport. I can recommend something to anybody I meet."


Shelley Balls: "My favorite is the RIOT 3 S Pro Gen 2. The S model is slammed so it's shorter, so it's a little bit easier. It gives me that confidence when I come to a stop and when I take off."


Brock Hoyer: "I think these things, just, they get you in places that just put a grin on your face every day."
