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 (2.86 pitch 9 tooth) which makes the track roll easier over the larger diameter. The CMXDS is the most efficient drive system on the market today (2013 PRO included). Please take a look at our "Shop talk" page to learn about our front suspension.
We have been building, selling and riding CMX TURBO ROCKETS since 2008. We have had a lot of fun riding CMX's with the awesome horsepower that is produced with our Aerocharger T66 boosted CFI Polaris engines (approximately 260 HP on 10 lbs. of boost). The power delivery is so smooth and consistent at any throttle position that boon-docking is as fun and easy on the CMX-X TURBO ROCKET as a naturally aspirated sled, but when you need that extra 100 horsepower to get you out of a bad situation, you have it. We have had zero engine problems and (aside from a sticky boost controller) zero turbo problems. We have learned a lot about what it takes to keep the engine happy with the added HP and with the help of Dobeck Performance who builds our CMX private label tuning boxes we are able to fuel the engine properly in all conditions, both on and off of boost.
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.
Press Release - CMX-X/K-MOD
Change is a good thing, and CMX has seen some huge changes over the last several years. We are announcing another significant change for mid season 2012-2013. We currently build our own rear suspension. It has been known for many years as the "Crazy Mountain M-10". Over the past 2 seasons we have done a lot of testing with Jake Anderson, owner of RAPTOR PERFORMANCE SHOCKS (best shocks we have ever ridden) to perfect the suspension, both front and rear on the CMX-X. It was during this testing that we had the pleasure of meeting and riding with Kevin Bolinder, owner and builder of the K-Mod Rear Suspension. Turns out that the top of the line K-Mod skids come with Raptor Performance Shocks, and both front and rear rail shocks have 20 position clicker adjustability. Funny thing...the adjustment knob on the Raptor Shocks seems to be attached to something inside the shock (unlike shocks we have ran in the past, where you can turn the knob from one end to the other with no noticeable change). You can move the adjustment 2 clicks on the Raptor Shocks and feel the difference. They are AWESOME! We tested a K-Mod rear skid on the CMX-X last season and we are sold. The K-Mod rear suspension is fully adjustable for any type of riding and covers a wide range of rider weights. K-Mod uses a 4 position coupler adjuster that you can make a change to in the matter of seconds. You can loosen the coupling of the suspension to make it very cushy for trail or play riding, or you can tighten it up for those vertical climbs where the last thing you want is too much ski lift. This adjustability becomes hugely important when you add over 100 Horse Power with the addition of a Turbo. Don't get me wrong, our Mountain M-10 has the same capabilities, but it is more difficult to make these adjustments because it requires wrenches. The ride quality on both suspensions are great with Raptor Shocks. The K-Mod is a perfect choice for the CMX-X and it will be standard equipment starting in January 2013. We will be selling K-Mod rear suspensions as an upgrade for all 4 brands of sleds.
