Welcome to CMX -makers of the worlds finest mountain sled
CMX is where it is today because of our "Relentless Dedication To Perfection". We have been building "Back Country, Mountain Powder Sleds" since 1991 and we are very happy with and proud of our accomplishments over the years. We are now building the machines that we have always dreamed of building. The thing that makes this possible is the continued evolution of technology and its implementation in the snowmobile industry.
We build CMX-X sleds from the ground up, in other words, we don't start with an existing factory sled and try to recreate what already exists. We start with what we want to accomplish with regards to light-weight, reliability, handling and overall performance. Then we compile this data and use it to create the CMX-X. We use some factory Polaris parts, such as the cast aluminum bulkhead and over-structure. (It would be cost prohibitive to create these parts when they are mass-produced and this is great technology that would be very hard to improve upon). The CMX billet aluminum side plates are then attached to the CMX modified cast aluminum bulkhead. From this point on the chassis is all CMX. The CMX design and engineering team has done a great job in the creation of the CMX-X chassis.
The CMX-X ride height is a little higher than most other sleds. This gives more clearance to the snow, which means less drag. The way that this is accomplished is by changing the front and rear suspensions relationship to the chassis. The Crazy Mountain Xtreme Drive System (CMXDS)(standard on all CMX sleds since 1999) is 1" longer than a stock PRO, this moves the drive shaft down an inch and back an inch. This improves the attack angle, which makes your sled get up on the snow better. We also use larger drivers (3" pitch 8 tooth) which makes the track roll easier over the larger diameter. The CMXDS is the most efficient drive system on the market today. Please take a look at our "Shop talk" page to learn about our front suspension.
The CMX-X features a 16" wide track. We have learned that a 1" wider track verses a longer track has a greater positive affect on floatation. The common misconception is that a 16" wide track makes a sled harder to side-hill. There are many factors that affect how a sled handles. We have created the proper geometry and ergonomics to make the CMX-X (with a 16" wide track) the easiest sled you will ever ride to lay over, carve and side-hill with. Our Skinz Airframe Running Boards are 1" wider than stock running boards which gives the rider more leverage which makes it easier to use your weight to tip the sled. The custom seat on the CMX-X built by Skinz makes it very easy to do crossover maneuvers in challenging, technical terrain. In the past all CMX sleds came with an "Off-Side Throttle", with the ease of handling the CMX-X does not need one. You have heard people say about their new sled: "I can do things on this sled that I could not do on any other sled" well then you should throw a leg over the new CMX-X. It will take you to a whole new level of easy fun to ride sled. We look forward to building your dream sled: THE CMX-X - BEST SLED ON THE PLANET. Please call with questions and to place your order.
