Beat Thy Neighbor with the Yamaha Sidewinder SRX. The 2024 Sidewinder SRX pays tribute to the 1980 SRX with the limited edition heritage colorway. This machine has carved a niche in snowmobiling reserved for only the fastest, hardest accelerating production sleds. Its low-profile, lean chassis is suspended by a specialized, electronically controlled iQS system that allows you to adjust the ride on-the-fly. The addition of EPS adds handling precision and a lightweight steering character. The combination of iQS and EPS yields a one-two punch for a ride that is unrivalled in the high-performance category. SRX is the 'top-gun' choice of riders looking for maximum velocity when it's a race to the horizon.
Yamaha Variable Electric Power Steering (EPS)
Yamaha's newest generation of Electric Power Steering (EPS) has reduced weight by over three pounds and incorporates a "brushless" DC motor for improved reliability and performance. Variable Assist EPS utilizes a magnetic torque sensor that measures steering input based on torsion or 'twist' of the steering post, which is calculated from handlebar input and ski resistance. This data is suppled to an integrated control module which, in turn, signals the brushless servo-motor to assist the steering through its powered, worm-gear drive assembly. All together it gives a more balanced, natural feel or 'connection' to the terrain, and effectively reduces the steering effort required while enhancing predictability for greater rider confidence and less fatigue.
Stryke' Single Keel Ski
The Yamaha-designed single-keel ski strikes the elusive balance between lightweight steering effort and precision handling over a wide range of snow conditions. Special staggered carbides further enhance steering response, while a special shim pad assembly works in conjunction with the rubber saddle block to adjust the carbide pressure point. Overall ski stance is also adjustable by relocating the thick spacer located on each ski axle to the opposite side.
Fox Zero iQS Shock Package
Fox Intelligent Quick Shift (iQS) shock absorbers are employed up front and on the rear arm. Suspension can be adjusted on-the-fly using a left-hand mounted switch on the bars. Compression damping is offered in three very noticeable steps from soft to firm. Once activated the SCU (suspension control unit), located on the shock body, alters the oil flow within all applicable shocks in less than one second allowing the rider to dial in suspension feel to the running conditions. The shock setting is clearly displayed in the left-side digital gauge once the selection is made. There are also two 'driver' select modes which can be preset and held in memory to change the overall settings in one step. Rebound damping is preset, remaining constant to control kick-back and 'packing' in the rough, regardless of the iQS compression selection.
