    OT: North Legion SMX

    I was browsing the web couple days ago and saw this
    www.northlegion.com
    and i couldnt find any info on where to buy them and options and how much they cost and other such questions
    wondered if any of you were "in the know" or am i just missing a website that sells them in the US

    Our shop here sells them. They're quite heavy, and difficult to hike up hills with, but dayum do they cruise and carve like crazy. If I had a snowmobile, I would own one. None of our local ski hills seem to want them on the lifts though,,,

    The rear skis sit on an articulating suspension, so they grab a lot of edge in corners.

    If I remember correctly, they're handmade in Norway, three skis, a coil shock, and a marzocchi DJII on the front


    They're expensive, but super fun. You just need a way to get them up hills

    They're quite burly and well made in person, but still quite pricey for how limited their use is.

    A more traditional conversion kit for an old full-suspension frame is cheaper, and a lot easier to consider hiking up hills, but offers a completely different ride style
