The problem with this sport is there are no intermediate sleds between the 120cc and the 370cc range most are a little to big, heavy and powerful for the age 8-16 group, there should be a sled class between the two. That is what we are stuck with. Why? Why cant I buy a mid size sled from Arctic Cat? I know plenty of people asking the same question.

There was actually a survey done a few years ago by Cat (I think) and I assumed a 250cc type sled was in the works. No such luck. You'll have to track down an old Bravo.

The 370 is a huge jump up from a 120. There is no intermediate chassis. I need the size and weight of chassis smaller than a full size sled.

Didn't D&D or Black Magic have a mid size sled in the works that you could order back in April that they showed at the show.

there used to be! the mid sized "lynx" i'm trying to remember but i think they made it through 1996?

early 90's 340's are outdated tech wise but are overall smaller and more of a midsize sled

Look for an old Yamaha Sno Scoot or Sno Sport. The Scoots go about 25 mph and the Sports go about 35 mph. The Scoots are available on ebay all the time and clean ones generally bring about $1600. I have heard of Sports selling for as much as $3000. Its a lot of money, but if your kids don't wreck it, you can probably get most of it back when you are done with it. I had a Scoot that I bought about 12 years ago for $600 and sold after a year for $700 when I found a Sport for $1100. I kept the Sport about 5 years and sold it for $1800. The Scoots and Sports are great learning sleds and are fun to bomb around with but aren't practical for trail riding. I would look for an older bravo/enticer/ovation once the kids get old enough to drive on the trails. These are probably a lot more practical and certainly more affordable than the scoots.

Yup, too true. Kids either ride the little 120's or go to a full sixed sled.

My boys are 9 & 10 and we bought them a pair of 440's this year. We always ride in a line so they are between my wife and I and therefore under our control speed wise. They handle the larger sleds fine but I'm sure a mid-sized sled would be a lot easier for them.
