ReTrax Wheels?

Thinking of getting a set for my fusion, and just want to see if any one out there has used them? If so what was your opinion?

I have a set mounted on my 500xc. I personally like them-sure is nice when you get to a paved parking lot-like the gas stations. Saves on the carbide wear bars!!

Would be even better if I had reverse on the sled, but with the wheel kit you can get around well.

They occasionally kick up some snow when in the "up"position. Had them all of last season and had no problems what so ever. Also, the people at Retrax are great to deal with!

I think you will like them. You don't realize how nice they really are until you have to ride someone else's sled and they don't have the wheels on!

I e-mailed them to do a radio interview on the product, and they didn't even respond. I was going to help them out...either they are to big or don't care. Don't know but don't want much to do with them now. I'll wait till somebody else comes out with a product like the Re-Trax.

Hey YOO, take it easy, not sure why they didn't respond-maybe out sledding? Give them a call at 1 866 473 8729.

When I had inquired about their product and asked SEVERAL questions, they were very helpful. From what I know it's a small business and I would recommend anyone interested in this type of wheel kit to check them out!

Would like to hear of the interview once you have it.

XCSP, tried e-mailing them AGAIN...still no response. I WAS going to give them some plugs on our radio station. Guess they are too big and too busy to reply.

Yoo, maybe give them a call directly and talk to them as I have never had the impression they were too big or uninterested in the customer at all.

upstateny-
Love the fusion, only rode a little but what an impression!
The re-trax work GREAT, and they are awsome on pavement (gas stops)
it's like steering a four wheeler on hard pack.
No more sliding and trying to turn, just klic and away you go.
