Sea-Doo GTX Limited iS 255By Joseph Penalver
Sea-Doo has long been the innovator when it comes to PWC’s (Personal Watercrafts), and with the GTX limited they continue that longstanding tradition. Typically, PWC’s ride like jackhammers in choppy waters, and if you have ever ridden one, you know exactly what I am talking about. What sets the GTX apart from all the other PWC’s out there is that it is the first one to offer a full suspension system. The upper deck of the watercraft is suspended separately from the hull and lower deck.
How does it work you ask? It consists of a pair of pivoting, cast-aluminum arms that support the upper deck-–seat and foot wells, handlebars and bow stowage compartment–-above the hull and deck, which remain bonded together in traditional fashion. The actual suspension consists of a Fox gas-charged shock absorber and a coil spring, located side-by-side in the bilge and acting only on the forward arm. So if you have never ridden a Sea-Doo, now is the time to try one and see what it can do on the sea. [$16,499 at seadoo]
