Taiga Motors has partnered with the X Games as the exclusive Electric Snowmobile provider for the 2024 events. For nearly 30 years, X Games has promoted progression through its events, athletes and partnerships. The first-of-its-kind partnership will reinvent athlete transportation onsite, reducing the emissions of its snowmobile fleet by up to 86 percent and lowering the event’s carbon footprint.
“Our collaboration with Taiga isn’t just a sponsorship; it’s a shared commitment to paving the way for a more environmentally conscious sports industry,” says Ashley Robbins, vice president of partnerships at X Games. “Together, we aren’t just aiming high — we’re forging a new path towards a lower carbon future.”
The Nomad elehttps://www.taigamotors.com/en/products/nomad/ctric sleds will also reduce noise pollution. X Games production will take advantage of the quiet in new #TaigaTalk segments where hosts can conduct in-depth interviews with athletes as they ride sleds back to the competition start.
“We are delighted to be supporting the X Games in their transition towards a more eco-conscious event,” says Annick Lauzon, marketing director at Taiga. “The grueling operations and fast pace of the event will also prove a perfect demonstration ground for our 100% electric Nomad snowmobiles, and we hope this will encourage other events and operators to transition their snowmobile fleets to electric, without compromising on power or performance.”
The Nomad is the world’s first mass-produced 100% electric snowmobile. The versatile sport-utility snowmobile is emission-free and operates quietly and exhaust fume-free. It requires no powertrain maintenance, gas or oil, making it a cost-effective option over time. Described as a winter workhorse, the Nomad offers a range of up to about 63 miles and has a towing capacity of 1,125 pounds.
