New 2022 Ski-Doo MXZ X Review, More Powertrain – The story is about 2022 engines from Arctic paint, Polaris, Ski-Doo, and Yamaha to help the spring buyer make a decision. Seek full evaluation in the future of the Snow Goer issue.

Perhaps some years-over most impactful changes in the snowmobile market for 2022 hidden aboard Ski-Doo-and, surprisingly, we’re not talking about turbochargers tucked under Cowl at the 850s select SUMMIT.

Instead, it was an oh-so-subtle change – at least for the naked eye-X and X-RS versions of the MXZ and Renegade models that drew a bunch of rave reviews from our test crew at the 2021 Rode event test report.

At first glance, except for some discoloration and the turquoise disappearance of Renegades, a 2022 version of the machine looks very similar to the 2021 model. The layout and ergonomics of the REV Gen-4 was a known amount of the recent Ski-Doo rider and, at first glance, the suspension system looks pretty darn familiar too.

2022 Ski-Doo MXZ X Changes

But the changes that come with adding the letter “X ” to the RAS dual A-ARM suspension front and rear rMotion results in a somewhat significant improvement in handling and less dominant but still important bumps in the rising quality. New pilot X Ski seal deal.

For the undiscovered, the RAS X front suspension is widening from 42.4 to 43 inches but the base layout remains the same – aside from the slightly longer A-Arms, the new Spindles are part of the package but the Ski-Doo officials admit that its spindle redesign is as much as about making sleds still fit in standard size shipping crates than anything else.

In rMotion X rear, the conversation was all millimeters-the front arm was 30mm again (about 1.1 inches) and Mount 7 mm (. 27 inches) higher on the rails. The back arm is about 35mm longer (1.4 inches) long, with a 15mm (. 6 inches) longer rear shock placed at a more flat angle. The new Ski has a more lateral surface that is more aggressive hookup but less darting. You can read more details here, our focus in this article is our rider’s first impression.

2022 Ski-Doo MXZ X Performances

The first impression was very, very good. The Test racer reported a higher level of self-handling confidence with the Renegade and MXZ models equipped so we tested it all week-and the difference was emphasized when we had an MXZ TNT 2021 model (which did not get a suspension upgrade and Ski) with the same ride and MX Z 600R X.

“They obviously shoot to create a more consistent, more easy-to-ride sled Trail, and they nailed it,” the third Test rider has to offer. “I can put a little input into the sleigh and keep it fast.”

So what’s different in handling? For one, MX ZS and Renegades feel more fixed to the ground in all situations. Sleds feel like they need a bit more effort steering than the previous year, but it’s still less of a competitive brand.

In addition, sleds are equipped with their line of experts in turn — allowing up to confidently drive deeper view-through alternately and reapply the previous throttle in the Exit Corner.

We climbed sleds with both standard X Ski pilots on them as well as units with adjustable depth of pilot TX Ski, which featured longer keel and longer runners than their TS Ski pilots replacing. Interestingly, our testers found the need to run more blades on the TX Ski than we commonly run in TS.

In the condition in which we will have a knife in Spindles of the second or third dashes – indicator in the previous year, we have bladed out to position four. That seems to be counter-intuitive at first – given that the blade is 2.4-inches longer than before – but they also have a more subtle approach to angles on the front, which may have been why we want more depth as a whole.

Check back in Snow Goer’s autumn issue for a fuller evaluation, and the direct comparison between these machines and competitive models.
