First Impression: Best Handling Sidewinder SRX Ever

In theory, the skis on a modern snowmobile seem like simple enough items – a couple of slabs of 40-some-odd-inch long colored plastic (or, factually, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene material) with a carbide-wearing keel or two running down their underside and directing the snowmobile where we want it to go.

However, intricacies in their design are vital to the handling of the machine to which they are attached, and Yamaha proved that as well as anybody in model year 2021.

That’s because Yamaha finally replaced the Tuner skis that we and many others have been complaining about for years on its high-end snowmobiles and replaced them with an excellent substitute, and the results are amazing.

That, in turn, makes the Stryke ski-equipped 2021 Yamaha Sidewinder SRX LE the best-handling big-power four-stroke to date, something that played itself out on multiple test drives at the Rode Reports testing event earlier this year.
