Snowmobiles by Ski-Doo and Lynx are tracked vehicles offered by Bombardier's recreational products division. Both brands offer many different styles and sizes of snowmobiles designed for a variety of specific uses.
Both of Bombardier's snowmobile brands incorporate the company's patented Rotax engines. Bombardier founder Joseph-Armand Bombardier invented the modern open-cockpit style snowmobile in 1959 and turned the Ski-Doo into the world's first mass-produced snowmobile. While the Ski-Doo brand is one of the most popular snowmobiles sold in the United States, the Lynx snowmobiles are not available in North America. They are sold primarily at dealers in Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Central European Alps region.
Ski-Doo offers several different models, including the Renegade, MXZ, Summit, Freeride and Grand Touring snowmobiles. It also offers the Expedition, Tundra and Skandic models. The Ski-Doo product line has snowmobiles designed for trail riding, racing, extreme sports, touring and utility use. Ski-Doos incorporate Bombardier's Rev-X platform for its track drive systems with four different designs specially engineered for specific uses.
Lynx sleds are available in the Rave RE racing models, and the Boondocker snowmobiles are designed for sports riding in deep snow. The Commander sleds are crossovers designed for sports usage in deep or light snow and easy operation. Ranger and Yeti units provide a platform for heavy utility workloads, while the Adventure line is made for comfortable touring with heavy loads for uses such as family and ice fishing trips.
