Three Speed Transmission: The Hi/Lo transmission with reverse is workhorse one minute, and a versatile trail cruiser the next. With a simple to use manual actuated lever, you can select from “normal” high range to low range to pull heavy loads below 50mph.
Direct to Crankshaft Clutching: Instead of a gear reduction system, as found on some four-stroke designs, both versions of the Genesis 1049 engine has a primary clutch mounted directly to the crankshaft. This allows the engine to be mounted lower in the chassis, and eliminates parts, complexity, and weight resulting in improved handling and improved durability.
High Flotation Skis: Wide skis deliver added flotation when traveling off-trail, while an engineered keel provides predictable handling and easy to steer manners.
Heavy Duty Wrap-Around Bumper: In addition to the new work-inspired design, a stout, wrap-around bumper provides protection from the bumps and bangs that come with a day on the job.
Pro Comfort Suspension: This dual-shock, fully coupled suspension features a simple and effective flip-lever torsion spring adjustment to quickly adapt the suspension for one-up or two-up riding, or for hauling a heavy payload. A 40mm, High Pressure Gas (HPG) shock provides exception control, fade resistance, and maximum work capabilities.
Camoplast 1.5 Cobra WT Track: The primary purpose of the 20" x 154" x 1.5" Cobra track is to fully maximize all available snow with confidence-inspiring deep snow floatation and powerful pulling force. The 1.5" lug is perfect for lowspeed or high-load situations that utility sleds often function in.
Gull Wing A-Arm Front Suspension: The unique “curved” front suspension delivers increased clearance thereby reducing the potential for impact and damage when encountering hidden rocks, stumps, or other debris when navigating unknown terrain.
KYB Gas Cell Shocks: The coil-over front shocks are specifically calibrated for additional loads and off-trail riding, yet still deliver a plush, predictable ride on-trail.
Standard Electric Start: Seamless and easy to use electric start delivers instant and hassle free starts, no matter the weather, eliminating the need for an “old-school” pull rope.
Standard Tow Hitch: In addition to a host of on-board creature comforts and storage, a standard factory rear mounted tow hitch is at the ready for additional gear or occasional light-duty work.
Expansive Under-seat Storage: With a hinged, flip-up seat, the VK exudes its work ethic at every turn. The large under-seat storage touts an integrated tool kit and room for much more.
Raised Passenger Seat: The wide and plush standard two-up seat provides comfort for two.
