RAPTOR PERFORMANCE SHOCKS INTRODUCES STRONGER AND LIGHTER BOLT-IN XM-ACE KIT FOR SKI-DOO SUMMIT SUSPENSION
Geometry, designed to replace “old-school” torsion spring technology boasts unparalleled coilover performance and four-pound weight reduction.
Warroad, MN – May 6th, 2015 – Raptor Performance Shocks (RaptorShocks.com), a leading Minnesota-based supplier of performance suspension products for such noted snow sled brands as Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha, announced the introduction of the XM-ACE kit for the Ski-Doo Summit 146, 154, 163 and 174 tracks. The XM-ACE (Advanced Coilover Engineering) geometry was designed to replace what Raptor representatives call “old-school” torsion spring technology with unparalleled coilover performance and a significant four-pound weight reduction. The new kit is being readied for shipment to Raptor dealers and the public.
“The torsion spring technology in the Ski-Doo Summit works well enough, but it can be considered ‘old-school technology’,” says Jake Anderson, owner of Raptor Performance Shocks. “We wanted to engineer a bolt-in kit that would utilize all of the benefits of a coilover shock to give the XM rear suspension more tunability and greater durability, with a tangible weight savings.”
The XM-ACE kit features a billet aluminum rear pivot for strength and durability, and was designed for a 3° by 3° range of motion with an optional lock-out mode to eliminate movement; a Raptor coilover rear track shock with custom valving and spring combinations; a lightweight rear torque arm fabricated of 4130 Chrome Moly tubing and engineered to exhibit excellent strength characteristics as well as an optional Raptor coilover front track shock boasting exceptional adjustability.
“The XM-ACE is a superior product and has exceeded my expectations in every way! Ride quality on my 174 T3 is amazing and with a couple of clicks of the shock, the suspension feels bottomless in the rough!” said one customer. “Raptor’s attention to detail is first class and every single component is ‘eye candy’ with no compromise, that’s for sure.”
“I am involved in every aspect of this company, and I am proud to say our biggest asset is our profound understanding of vehicle dynamics, along with exceptional design and engineering capabilities,” concludes Anderson. “The announcement of our XM-ACE kits for the Ski-Doo Summit suspension continues our tradition of providing premium products to enhance vehicle performance in addition to cementing our dedication to customers’ experience.”
