Red Bull Kronplatz Cross
NEW BISON X at one of the toughest ski cross races
The toughest ski cross team contest of the winter is due to take place once again on February 26 and 27, 2016. This successful event, now in its fifth edition, is held at the Kronplatz winter sports resort. PRINOTH has been a proud event sponsor and supplier of technical equipment for the Red Bull Kronplatz Cross ever since the inaugural race in 2011.
The conditions are spectacular – and the challenges facing the competitors are extreme. The racers from the teams of three battling it out for victory have to overcome a steep scarp and numerous obstacles. As soon as each racer reaches the end of the course, they can open the starting gate for their teammates to set off. The competitors include both professionals and ambitious amateurs, and this ski cross challenge guarantees sheer excitement right down to the final second. This daredevil race down the eastern side of the Kronplatz mountain near Olang relies on perfectly prepared curves, rollers, and jumps. And to ensure the best possible preparation, the event organizers have placed their trust in the NEW BISON X from PRINOTH. This park specialist with its new POWER tiller and innovative park blade is superbly equipped for precise shaping. Thanks to the brand new swivel seat, which can be moved sideways, the driver has an optimum overview in any situation. With 406 HP, the BEW BISON X is not only the most powerful snow groomer in its class, but it also meets the most stringent “Stage IV/Tier 4 final” exhaust emission standard and offers impressively low fuel consumption along with a 90% reduction in nitrogen oxide and fine dust emissions.
