What types of snowmobile tracks are there?
Fortunately Camso, the worlds leading manufacturer of snowmobile tracks, provides a convenient classification for each snowmobile track they manufacture. These types are:
Trail Tracks – Trail snowmobile tracks are designed for riders who spend most of their time on groomed snowmobile trails or un-groomed packed trails. These tracks can be further segmented into those designed as a general purpose track, tracks that provide extra traction in hard packed and/or icy conditions and hi performance tracks. Learn more about trail snowmobile tracks.
Mountain Tracks – Mountain snowmobile tracks come in longer track lengths and taller lug – tread height. The longer track lengths provide extra flotation for mountainous terrain and steep slopes. In addition the taller lug – tread height provides greater traction in deep powder. Learn more about mountain snowmobile tracks.
Utility Tracks – Utility snowmobile tracks are designed specifically for utility snowmobiles and provide the needed traction and efficiency that allows these sleds to perform their best. Learn more about utility snowmobile tracks.
