Thanks guys, the Attrax one seems a little dinky to me, but the snowtrax one is the one i wanted, the 2moto one looks ok but not as good as the snowtrax one either does anyone here use one???

I have an Attrax and I don't think it would provide the floatation that the 2Moto unit does, and the suspension seems smoother. I've seen video of the 2moto but none yet for the snowtrax.

One thing to note - using a front ski is very limiting, best for soft snow. I tried a ski only a few years ago and on hard pack trails or ice it's more like riding with the front brake locked on. My ski wraps around my front tire so the tire rolls on the hard stuff and the ski takes over when it sinks in soft spots.

The 2Moto looks similiar to a snowhawk, which I have ridden, and feels nothing like a bike or snowmobile. The closest comparison I can give would be a stand up jet ski.

My Attrax is not effective in fresh powder, but for most riding conditions it's great, most of the time feels like a rear tire, and is quick to swap - only an hour from tire to track if you have the track mounted on a spare rim.

If you're going to be riding pure fresh powder as shown in the videos then the other tracks would probably be better. With ski only, I could barely cross a road without the front end washing out.

Hey guys For serious snow ridding there are only two options right now. That is the 2moto radix or the Timbersled Mountainhorse. I have a 2moto setup on my bike and its a blast :thumbsup:. I would love a mountianhorse ,they seem to be a lot better in the deep fresh snow.
There is a forum in snowmobile,specialty check it out.
