Systemically, the Pack-It Bracket is the connection of things which forms a complex whole. It’s also not just about the bracket itself; rather the multitude of principles which are baked into the Pack-It Bracket kits.
The Pack-It Bracket Kit manages all the finite procedures in an organized scheme and method; meaning all structures work together in harmony to perform a function with the highest possible performance outcome.
A bracket itself weighs less than an iPhone and the entire Pack-It Bracket kit shaves 1 pound OFF the rack in a full kit. When you combine these stats with the existing GR racks the Pack-It Bracket easily makes this setup the lowest profile, lightest, strongest, and only warranty for a consumer compared to other products on the market.
If you’re a Snowmobiler only, as a snowmobile rack the GR racks are lower than a Polaris Tunnel Bag.
If you’re a skier or snowboarder, who’s using the Mo Pros racks to access the backcountry and for sled skiing; pound of pound the lightest rack on the market which also has the lowest profile to be completely undetected for sled only days.
It’s been a great journey to get here and we’ve learned a lot about our consumers and ourselves. Inherently by the nature of reflection we’ve also isolated what we’re not good at and that’s compromising.
The 2017/2018 product line has absolutely zero compromises.
Great times in the Northwest supporting 686 for their latest snowboard project ‘Rabbit Hole.’
The owner of Mo Pros Hooked up with team manager Patrick McCarthy for his recent creative joining numerous team riders from across the country.
The owner of Mo Pros was on site for Pat as the snowmobile concierge shuttling riders to the top of snowboard and ski runs dropping riders off on Steve panels through technical to rain while imposter films from the bottom.
The picture below is of Mo Pros owner and Mary Rand as she dismounts the snowmobile parked on a technical side hill; unloading her snowboard from the Mo Pros snowmobile snowboard rack.
The blacked out tunnel guards is a multi purpose product, it serves the following 3 distinct needs
Protects tunnel from boot scuffing and scrates
Eliminates snow from sticking to the tunnel
Installation guide and protective mat under the rack
Eliminates any potential of ice and snow build up in the rack system
Beyond functionality, the blacked our guards also serve as a means to retain the value of your snowmobile. Sled skiing is hard on equipment and these blacked out guards are a perfect investment for protecting your snowmobile from the constant abuse.
It also blacks out your tunnel which is always ideal :)
The blacked our guards are specifically made by Arctic Fx, the leader in all motorsports wraps in the industry.
We consistantly get this question every season and figured to set the record straight. It's relatively simple too, here's the quick math.
Sled: 600 lbs (with gas)
Trailer: 400 lbs (conservative)
Gear: 80 lbs
Now what car can tow 1,100 pounds? Pretty much all of them actually and all you have to be aware of is 'tongue weight' of a trailer. Tongue weight is measured by the amount of weight the trailer places on the vehicle when hitched. Every trailer needs tongue weight and you want to shoot for about 100 lbs or so; if you don't have tongue weight then your trailer will bounce off the ball; an extremely bad situation which can actually be very damaging for anyone involved.
A larger truck can handle up to 750 lbs of tongue weight and even a Tacoma can handle about 300-500 lbs depending on the model. However a single axle trailer should be moderately easy to pick up at the tongue and hitch up as a gauge for weight.
Back to cars though, any car these days can handle 1,100 pounds of towing and you're hyped because you save the cost of a big ass truck AND you're still getting out there. Depending on the vehicle, you could even tow 2 sleds on a trailer with a friend; something we personally did with a Volvo Wagon for years.
The only complexity you run into is access capability, specifically in the Northwest. We have very low valleys with pretty sharp cut offs for snow line given the moderate climate. Basically what that means is, you have to climb way up on a forest road to reach snow. In between that there could be wash outs and land slides which is only where the sled deck and truck really save the day. Otherwise, the moment you hit 3" of snow, you should be unloading your sled!
Traveling in 3" or more in a truck is useless. You can cover that ground 6x faster on a sled; it is simply more efficient.
If you're worried about turning it around, don't be. You can turn a 1 place sled trailer around yourself and re-hitch it after the car gets pointed in the right direction. A 2-place may be a little tougher but still manageable alone. Technically you always have a friend to help you cause you shouldn't be riding snowmobiles alone in the mountains!
Hopefully this article helps dissolve the misconceptions related to what's required to go snowmobiling. It's about getting out there and trust me; we all had ghetto ass sedans towing our even crappier sleds to the mountain.
Everyone starts somewhere and who cares what other people think. Just go do it!
Very proud of the feature in Snowest on the Pack-It Bracket. As a kid we looked out for this magazine every year; to actually have content in it is pretty surreal.

Making purchasing decisions can be hard, especially when you're trying to differentiate based on true needs. However, when choosing a snowmobile cargo rack there are a couple things you want to consider.
Here's a couple considerations to think about:
Riding Level and Aggression
Carrying Capacity Needs
Fusion of both 1 & 2
Let's begin with 'Riding Level and Aggression,' if you're an aggressive snowmobiler who spends a long days in the mountains, your strategy should be to keep your backpack as light as possible. This way you don't burn energy hauling gear around all day, especially when freeing up your friend who gets stuck all day.
Any of the Mo Pros snowmobile racks will eliminate weight from your pack, but if you're looking to stay low profile, haul a snow bungee, tool kit, first aid kit, lunch, etc........then try: Ajoosta GRS
**Carry Just the Essentials**
The GRS rack is designed to be compact, light weight, reversible, and serve as a functional storage solution for your snowmobile; keeping the weight out of your pack, your legs fresh, and providing long riding days is the goal. Versatility is critical, Mo Pros Snowmobile racks configure exactly how you want them to, tailoring to your specific needs. The Mo Pros snowmobile racks are also very easily removed (6 nuts) and fit Polaris Snowmobile Channel Systems and Ski-Doo snowmobile LINQ System without Drilling.
What if I'm an aggressive rider, with a serious backcountry agenda?
Well the Mo Pros Racks definitely support those who have a more serious plan in the mountains. If you're hauling camera equipment, supplies to the cabin, duffel bags for overnights, coleman stoves, a case of beer, chainsaw or anything else you could basically imagine.......then you need to step up the game and go with a larger snowmobile cargo rack solution.
If you want to stay light, sled aggressively, and carry all the eggs in the basket, then you need the: Ajoosta GRL
**You got the tunnel room, use it"
The larger model Ajoosta GRL is a functional rack which supports and strengthen the tunnel of your machine; allowing you to ride as aggressively as you want; with the security of keeping everything on board and not over stressing your chassis. You don't need to spend big money on snowmobile tunnel support, bigger bumpers, or other reinforcement accessories; the Mo Pros snowmobile cargo rack gives you what you need for the job; without compromise.
The multitude of strapping and fastening options means you can transform your snowmobile into anything you can imagine, timely and efficiently. Until you actually get one, you won't understand how your options are truly limitless....we continually hear this from our customers.
Okay I get it, but I'm NOT aggressive and just want to have fun, now what do I need?
Mo Pros Snowmobile cargo racks don't only apply to the aggressive snowmobiler. If you're strictly a trail rider who likes to get out and spend time in the outdoors, then the consideration should come down to storage capacity. In that situation you probably don't want to have a backpack at all and should determine your cargo carrying needs to best make decisions on what model Mo Pros Snowmobile Rack is best for you.
All the benefits and features mentioned previously in the article are relevant, even to the most novice rider. Just be aware that you also get all the same supporting and functionality benefits as well; which is a platform that can easily support any riders progression.
Here's an easy break down:
You're not a functional snowmobiler, carry some essential things, out for a rip - Ajoosta GRS
Aggressive sledder, wanna bring a proper lunch, Stanley Thermos, Extra Layers - Ajoosta GRL
It may not be about performance benefits at this juncture, but you do get to choose how much you want to upgrade the backcountry experience. When it's spring time, we all know who's going to be grilling hot dogs in the sunshine.
Enjoy it out there, it's the experience we all live for.
The Ajoosta Rack by Mo Pros is a utility snowmobile rack, which you can modify and set up for your explicit needs. Backcountry travel is variable and the mission constantly changes......shouldn't your rack system too?
The Mo Pros Snowmobile Rack also accommodates carrying external devices, through accessory attachment options. Although the Ajoosta Rack has been well known in the industry for it's performance capabilities as a snowmobile ski rack and snowmobile snowboard rack, however the capacity reaches much farther for carrying options.
Snowmobile Rack External Bracket Carrying Capabilities:
Fishing Rod Cases
Pow Surf Boards
Now that you've got the carrying capabilities and customization to keep the cargo locked down on your snowmobile or Timbersled snowbike, it's important to distinguish what capabilities you still have. Sometimes when utilizing other products, product technologies may cross over other usable features, it's critical to think of these items when making Snowmobile Rack, Snowmobile Ski Rack, and or Snowmobile Snowboard Rack purchasing decisions.....check out the infographic below for details:
Mo Pros Snowmobile Rack Superior Design:
Leave Cargo On, Get Out of Holes Faster
