Bret RasmussenWhen it comes to deep-powder snowmobiling, perhaps no name comes to mind before Bret Rasmussen. With that in mind, BRP joined forces with the mountain king and his Ride Rasmussen Style snowmobile riding clinics to use Ski-Doo snowmobiles for all its activities. Rasmussen has had a decades’ long relationship with Arctic Cat, so this new partnership is somewhat surprising.

In the realm of mountain snowmobiling Rasmussen has done it all, from hillclimb racing, managing a race team, forming a race circuit, owning dealerships, to consulting on design and producing instructional videos, his credentials speak for themselves. As a pioneer in the new trend of back country riding, where the challenge has evolved from a conquering the slope mentality, to add elements of challenging your skills on tight and difficult terrain style, he has led the way with techniques like the “wrong foot forward” method many riders are using today. Currently Rasmussen concentrates on his clinics, videos and seminars spread across North America. Snowmobile.com attended one of Rasmussen’s clinics, which you can read about here

Klim Radius Goggle PolarizedKlim has recently released the new Radius goggle, which it calls the most advanced snowmobile goggle in the world.

“The Klim Radius goggle is completely revolutionary and is the result of tirelessly sourcing technical solutions to pain points riders can encounter every day they ride,” Klim says in a release.

The heart of the new Radius goggle is its PolyCarb2 Premium Lens – what Klim calls the snowmobiling’s most advanced lens system. With Polycarbonate (PC) inner and outer lenses, Klim says the Radius is more durable and scratch resistant than the competition.

Another key feature of the lens is its Zero Fog Technology (ZFT). ZFT was developed in conjunction with suppliers and the treatments they apply to the facemasks of U.S. military pilots and special operations personnel. With ZFT, Klim says fogging is practically eliminated.
