Has anyone actually measured? Tonight we measured between a 1992 and a 2018 Polaris…. What do you guys think the measurement between the foot position and the front of the ski is?

"Rider Forward" is nothing more then a play on words by marketing.
The position of the skis has nothing to do with it.
In fact having the steering and front suspension assemblies placed in a more forward position to the central mass always improves handling and manipulation of the sled.
Rider forward BRP's way of saying "centralized mass" and every manufacture does this in their own way. Its more then just saying the rider is moved up on the chassis as implied by "rider forward".
But people fall for BRPBS...LOL

I’d be curious to see what the difference between an old and new doo would be.
