It is important to understand that a snow bike feels much different than a snowmobile. Snow acts like a cushion as it is, so a soft suspension doesn’t necessarily work to your advantage. Too soft can result in a lack of control and enjoyable handling. You do not want your snow bike to bottom out. A stiffer suspension—sometimes including spring upgrades for the heavier rider—will provide a much better ride with more predictable feedback, which is awesome for the heavier or more aggressive rider.
