Yamaha's air-shock snowmobile lets adventurers explore more territory

The 2010 snowmobile season, which begins this month, will see daredevils in places they couldn't reach before: in deeper powder, on remote cliffs, squeezing between trees. That's because the first full air-suspension sled swaps the usual heavy steel coils for air-filled shock absorbers, creating a smoother, 20-pounds-lighter machine. Riders can easily steer the FX Nytro MTX SE 162 with their weight, glide it nearly drag-free through powder, and unstick it from drifts.
