If you have a sport side by side, like the Polaris RZR or Can-Am Maverick X3, then you know these off-road machines are extremely capable and a ton of fun, but driving these machines can sometimes be nerve wrecking if you’re not set up for the right type of riding. Whether you’re in to dunes, desert, rock crawling, trail riding, UTV racing or you just like to go fast, a common desire for most UTV drivers is increased stability. Aftermarket SxS product company Reflex Beyond Extreme specializes in suspension and has a solution for the UTV market with their line of Reflex Suspension Systems.
Founded by a group of engineers with over 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, Reflex Beyond Extreme began by putting a focus on improving suspension on UTVs starting with the Polaris RZR S 800. As more RZR models hit the market, they began developing suspension systems for the latest machines. Truly a unique and patented product, the Reflex Suspension System increases the width of the machine by 8” (4” per side) without affecting the stock suspension geometry; preventing any extra load on the suspension parts. Basically, the Reflex System takes your stock suspension and makes it wider, narrowing the angle between the center of gravity to the wheels and increasing stability.
The benefits? The extra stability gained by widening the machine dramatically reduces body roll by up to 90%, not only does this increase the safety for the driver and passengers in the vehicle, it makes situations like extreme rock crawling a little more comfortable. The extra stability also makes it easier to drift and corner at a higher speeds, many race teams who use the Reflex Suspension System noticed a significant increase in their lap times because they were able maximize their corner speed or simply drift without breaking. To no surprise, there are Polaris Factory Racing teams from several countries that are running the Reflex System on their race UTVs. Other benefits include increased performance in whoops sections as well as reinforcement to the cassis at the front end; plus the added 8” just looks impressive.
The Reflex kit comes with everything you need to do the install, the system is bolt on, with no welding required, and can easily be installed with basic tools. Removing and replacing axles, might be the only complicated part about the installation. The kit isn’t limited to certain aftermarket parts either; the system works with any OEM replacement parts. The system is supplied with (4) 4340 chromoly heavy duty axles, but utilizes your stock shocks, a-arms, CV’s, radius rods and tie rods.
The parts in the kit are made of ST52 steel that is laser cut for a precise fit and finish as well as powder coated for extra durability. These systems have been thoroughly tested in extreme conditions and requires zero maintenance. Reflex Beyond Extreme prides themselves in a system that is designed to last forever.
