MIOVE THE GOALPOSTS
Industry's first semi-active suspension technology responding on both compression and rebound
RIDES BY ITS OWN RULES
The Maverick X3 changed everything—now it’s pulling farther ahead with the most advanced suspension ever fitted to a Can-Am for unmatched speed over any terrain. This is why we lead.
Smart-Shox deliver the industry’s fastest suspension response, period. Smart-Shox self-adjust up to 200 times per second, acting on both compression and rebound. And full soft to full firm in 17 milliseconds.
Off-road comfort is no longer a myth. With a response in 0.017 seconds to control both rebound and compression, Smart-Shox eliminate the compromise between race-winning handling and a comfortable, all-day ride for all passengers.
Smart-Shox respond to both rider inputs and the terrain near-instantaneously, reducing dive under braking, squat under acceleration, and maintaining a flat cornering attitude.
Smart-Shox are endowed with 9 sensors that feed realtime data into a computer capable of making up to 200 shock valving adjustments per second. And full stiff to full soft in just 17 milliseconds.
Here’s the secret: by a better mapping of ground surface and constant monitoring of wheel position, velocity and acceleration; Smart-Shox are able to maximize a tire’s contact with the earth for remarkable traction.
Suspension technology by riders, for riders: choose between Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ to tailor Smart-Shox responsiveness.
Know your roll: Smart-Shox keeps the Maverick X3 cornering flat, giving every rider more confidence and more consistent handling through the roughest terrain or most aggressive maneuvers.
Speed and comfort, all in one—Smart-Shox add both bottom-out and top-out protection for confidence when you’re way off the trail.
We call it comfortable—because it is. Puts priority on controlling the vehicle’s body for flatter cornering, while allowing the suspension to move as freely as possible for a plush ride.
This mode puts an emphasis on straight-line handling and comfort while minimizing cornering roll and body movement. The perfect setting for most driving situations, terrain, and riding styles.
Our highest-performance suspension setting, ever. Prioritizes full shock stiffness for sharpest handling, most aggressive bump / whoops control, and true race-inspired feel—at the press of a button.
