The KC711 Collection (a name created using Curtis’ initials and race number) includes the FXR for Polaris Zone Mountain jacket (shown). This unlined shell and the FXR for Polaris Zone Mountain pant are waterproof but breathable. The FXR for Polaris Keith Curtis jersey lets riders look and feel like the world champion hillclimber. The Fly F2 Carbon Snow Helmet features Curtis-styled graphics, and can be paired with new 509 Sinister snowmobile goggles. The KC711 Collection also contains casualwear items.
Also new from Polaris: the FXR for Polaris Yukon jacket and bib. The jacket, available in men’s and women’s styles, has a removable, wearable liner that can be worn alone.
The Ricochet jacket and bib, the jacket of which is available for men and women (the latter is shown), combines waterproof/breathable performance and premium insulation. This jacket has a removable, insulated liner that can be worn alone.
In addition to the Sinister model, the 509 snowmobile goggles are available in an Aviator model (pictured below) with a wide variety of lens colors and coatings. The rimless frames accommodate a much larger spherical lens. That minimizes the frame visible to the rider’s field and maximizes peripheral vision, according to Polaris. Triple-layered foam sits against the rider’s face.
The Fly F2 Carbon snow helmets, available in several color/graphics combinations, feature a shell composed of aircraft-grade woven carbon fiber and Kevlar composite materials. The lid features low-through ventilation.
Polaris has a large new collection of sportswear, layering apparel (tops and bottoms), ball caps and beanies, and outdoor gear for young riders.
Now for the accessories. Among the new items in the Burandt Collection for 2014 are Burandt Narrow/Low Bars, a Burandt Lock & Ride Flyer Bag and a new Burandt Wrap that gives a sled a custom look.
The Burandt RSI 5-inch Rise RMK Handlebar is the same handlebar setup Burandt uses on his backcountry sleds. This aluminum handlebar is narrower and has a 5-inch rise, 2 inches lower than the standard deep snow bar. It provides a comfortable riding position, lower center of gravity and better steering leverage.
The Burandt Wrap is a kit with adhesive-backed graphic wrap pieces that cover a hood and side panels.
The Burandt Lock & Ride Flyer Bag installs on a tunnel and provides protected storage space. With its Lock & Ride technology, this bag can be installed or removed in seconds without tools. It installs in the tunnel’s T-slots and features separate compartments for different types of cargo.
Other new items available for Polaris snowmobiles are a Lock & Ride Convertible Passenger Seat (shown) for the expanded lineup of 2014 Adventure models, new sled covers, new cargo bags and new sled protection.
