Im still pretty set on going the 163 3" series 7 track, more durable than the series 8 would u say ? Im just not wanting to have a track come apart on me, also I generally only get out 10-12 rides a year and have time to pick certian days to ride when its only deep snow conditions, which also is the reason i want to go 3" track.
If you can be a powder snob I would go with the series 8 2.75. Over the series 7 3.0”. The series 8 is 7-8 lbs lighter than the equivalent series 7 3.0”. The pitch is a big deal as it takes a bigger scoop of snow and hooks up extremely well. I would argue the 2.75 does better in deep fresh pow than the 3” series 7. It just works.
If you are worried about just durability then the series 7 3” is a durable track but I have really chewed through some nasty terrain this year on my 2.75. Downed logs, small trees, I expected a lot worse on several rides but it’s held up but yes the 3” would last longer.
