The Sidewinder L-TX LE represents an all-out assault on rough terrain. The Sidewinder L-TX LE front suspension features premium FOX Zero QS3-R shocks with Kashima coat while the dual shock SR137 rear suspension has a QS3 Kashima center shock and beefy Zero QS3-R 2.0 inch rear shock. The wide stance ARCS front clip and Stryke single-keel skis keep you pointed where you want to go and the long travel coupled, rear SRV suspension with 137-inch Ripsaw II track takes care of the rest. The pure power delivered by the industry's top-performing engine delivers in spades, pulling the corners closer together than you ever thought possible.
Fox Zero QS3 1.5-inch Kashima Front Shocks
The Fox Zero QS3 coil-over shocks feature a piggyback chamber to deliver reduced fading, exceptional control, and three easy-to-adjust compression damping performance settings so you can quickly and easily adjust the ride to conditions and riding preference.
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.
Electric Power Steering (EPS)
EPS takes the fight out of muscling the powerful turbo through twisty trails—but it doesn't stop there. EPS also isolates the rider from unwanted handlebar resistance fed back through the mechanical steering system from inconsistencies in the trail. The resulting light steering effort and handling precision is unrivaled when it comes to long days in the saddle. Suspension comfort, responsive throttle and reliable power top the list of priorities for long-distance rides.
