For many aftermarket products, you have to choose between style and performance.  There are a few products out there that do both and Slydog snowmobile parts definitely fit the bill.  The eye-catching color schemes will get your onlookers to notice, but the performance gain is what’s really going to grip you.  Slydog skis will put your sled on rails and the bogey wheels will keep it running cool and light. Riders are constantly struggling to find the right balance in their setup to get the best cornering ability without having the front end dart all over the place.  A common practice to get more front end response in corners is to adjust the ride height of the sled to add more ski pressure.  When you do this, […]

Over the last decade, no other powersport has advanced as much as the sport of snowmobiling has.  The technology has yet to plateau and the sleds keep getting better.  But they’re still not perfect.  That’s where aftermarket performance companies like Bikeman Performance come in.  Bikeman looks for the areas where the manufacturers have fallen short and then develops solutions and modifications to optimize the performance of your sled.

The Best Got Better No other snowmobile apparel company prides themselves more about their technical pieces than Klim does.  The Valdez parka and the Togwotee bibs have long been at the pinnacle of the Klim gear lineup and have also set the tone for the whole industry.  Many backcountry riders and technical hill climbers will staunchly defend their Klim gear against all others and for good reason.  The pieces just flat out perform. This winter, Klim has continued the evolution of the Valdez and Togwotee to bring them to even higher heights.  After all the years that this jacket and bib combo has been around, it still sets the standard for all technical snowmobile gear by not holding back on anything, including durability.  Klim has made these pieces […]

Like it or not, the colder temps are on their way.  When they do arrive, many riders will have had enough and go ahead with winterizing their bikes and begin their descent into Parked Motorcycle Syndrome.  You can avoid being that rider, though, and brave through the cold weather with heated motorcycle gear.  So what gear do you get? Most heated motorcycle apparel needs to be plugged into the motorcycle to draw power.  That’s alright if you want the most power for all day riding on your bike.  But what if you want your heated gear to work off of your bike?  Or what if you just don’t want to have to depend on an outside power source.  Mobile Warming is the answer and they certainly live […]
