Edge Products presents the X2 off road buggy.

The X2, based on the race bred Edge Barracuda has evolved into a two seat buggy. More than 25 years of Mini buggy design, development & thousands of buggies manufactured has resulted in the X2, a chunky & aggressive long travel buggy that can be built at home and enjoyed with friends & family.

Following the success of the single seat Barracuda buggy Edge responded to popular calls for a two seat race-ready high performance off-roader. The X2 is the result, featuring a larger tougher chassis and upgraded driveline while retaining the Barracuda’s great handling and high-strength roll cage.

 

Double A-Arm suspension on all corners keeps the wheels on the ground and the handling tidy. Rodend camber and caster adjustment allows for the full range of race tuning, and 20” of front wheel travel soaks up the biggest hits. The X2 suspension geometry takes the best of the championshipwinning Barracuda while improving high-speed stability and corner exit traction. The X2 finds the perfect combination of rally-style handling while floating over the roughest of the rough. Four-piston Wilwood brakes bring the X2 up short, grabbing 312mm (12.2”) rotors. The CV2 rear suspension and driveline unit features 14” of wheel travel to get the power to the ground and utilises Porsche 930 CV joints for ultimate reliability. The drivetrain mates well with a big-bore street bike engine like the 200+ hp Suzuki Hayabusa, giving the X2 a power to weight ratio most off-roaders only dream of. The six-speed sequential transmission winds the X2 up to over 200 km/h (125 mph).

 

If you thought this kind of performance was only available as a factory vehicle though, think again. Like all Edge buggies the X2 can be built at home – rolling kitsets are available which just need a motor and assembly, and for the garage builder there are comprehensive plans which detail the full vehicle fabrication from scratch. Regardless of skill level, the X2 brings racing buggy performance within anyone’s reach.
