TrailTrac FAQs

You’ve got questions. We’ve got Answers.

Is TrailTrac ABS for Snowmobiles?
Automotive Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) are designed to give the driver of an on-road passenger vehicle directional control under adverse braking conditions. TrailTrac is a high performance electronic braking system designed for snowmobiles to improve performance, increase predictability and stability when braking and instill a level of confidence in the rider that allows them to maximize all aspects of performance riding. So while TrailTrac uses some of the principles of anti-lock brakes its purpose is very different.

Can I buy a TrailTrac kit and install it on my sled myself?
We strongly recommend having TrailTrac installed by a trained dealer service technician. If you would like to discuss installing your own TrailTrac kit please include “self install” in the notes field of the reservation form and we will contact you to discuss your particular installation.

How long does it take to install the TrailTrac High Performance Electronic Braking System?
The TrailTrac system can be installed by a trained technician in about an hour.

What snowmobile brands and models do you have production kits available for today?
We are currently shipping kits for 2010 and newer Polaris Rush and Indy platforms.

Can I turn the TrailTrac system on and off?
Yes, you can easily turn the high performance braking system on and off using our “glove-ready” control switch mounted on the dash.

Does my sled need a battery for TrailTrac to work properly?
Yes, you need to have a 12v battery on board for TrailTrac to function. A battery kit and charging wire harness are available as Polaris service parts in the event a rider wants to install the kit in a sled that does not have electric start.

How much weight does TrailTrac add to my sled?
All the control offered by TrailTrac doesn’t mean a lot of extra weight. When added to a snowmobile with electric start and a 12v battery TrailTrac adds approximately four pounds (less than a gallon of gas). A battery kit and charging wire harness are available as Polaris service parts in the event a rider wants to install the kit in a sled that does not have electric start.
