Top to bottom, front to rear, X-RS riders want to have the very best technology available. X-RS riders demand the ultimate – ultimate performance, ultimate capability, ultimate features, ultimate suspension and ultimate handling from their sleds. Good isn’t good enough – they want to own the terrain no matter how rough it might be or how tight the turns are. Responsive agility is a must. Big bumps have to conquered. And when they hit the throttle the sled needs to react instantly, with the very best engines and acceleration available.
The 2019 Ski-Doo MXZ X-RS is the ultimate sled suited to deliver the kind of uncompromising performance these riders demand. It is truly “The best of the best”.
The industry standard for the ultimate in trail performance, the MXZ X-RS pairs the powerful, ultra-responsive 850 E-TEC or the 600R E-TEC engine (introduced in January 2018) with race-ready ergonomics, a forward steering post, reinforced running boards, Ergo-Step side panels, narrow seat, and suspension capabilities of the RAS 3 and rMotion suspension systems.
The centralized mass of the REV Gen4 platform paired with KYB Pro shocks make controlling the sled through bumps and moguls second nature. Instant power delivery from the E-TEC engine options gives riders fierce acceleration for holeshots and corner-to-corner performance.
Features such as the X-RS-exclusive forward steering position, open toe-holds and Forward Adjustable Riser lets riders customize their riding position for the most responsive handling sled in the roughest and tightest of trails. The beveled tunnel, narrow seat and flat, wide, reinforced running boards create a nimble, and precise sled that instills confidence for any rider in any trail terrain.
Available factory-installed Spring Buy options like pre-studded tracks, taller lug heights, quick-adjust suspension systems, and Pilot TS adjustable carbide skis give riders maximum flexibility when constructing their perfect ride.
It all starts with the REV Gen4 platform, designed to be the ultimate handling snowmobile. The trail version of the 4th generation REV platform is designed around aggressive trail riders with a narrow, compact design giving the rider more freedom to move and influence the sled. More centralized masses (especially side-to-side) make the vehicle ultra-responsive to rider input, delivering more fun per ride.
rMotion 129 rear suspension: THE standard for control, capability, comfort and adjustability. Supple ride in small bumps and added capability in large ones, thanks to separate spring and shock dynamics, and the most rising-rate motion ratio in the industry. The 129-inch length has superior traction, braking and bump filtration while still delivering the precise handling and cornering MXZ sleds are known for. Easy adjustments for shocks, springs and coupling blocks. The four-wheel rear axle on the MXZ X-RS version adds extra durability and cornering stability for the most demanding riders.
