    A powerful performer in all conditions, the Camso® BackCountry track, specially chosen for this Sidewinder, features 1.75"/44mm lugs. Driven by extrovert drive sprockets meshing precisely with holes in the track, it acts like a gear mechanism, to deliver outstanding levels of grip and propulsion in all snow conditions.

    J-hook handlebar and tall riser

    A tall, lightweight aluminum riser sets the handlebar at the right height for maximum control in fresh powder. This pivot-adjustable riser allows you to choose the optimum angle for your own riding position. The straight J-hooked handlebar also makes control easier and gives precise feedback from the front suspension.

    Dual Shock SR 137 rear suspension

    The Sidewinder L-TX GT offers an impressive range of easily adjustable tuning options, thanks to its intelligent FOX® iQS shock and torsion spring set-up. Soften it up for fresh powder riding - or stiffen it for fast trail blazing. Setting it anywhere in between is fine too - just experiment a little, then match it to your own riding style.
