Introducing the Weismann "Dual-Sport" 2 Speed Hi/Lo gearbox
Considered the best Side-by-Side on the market, the YXZ was geared for going fast, but not for going slow. If you wanted to rock crawl or ride through difficult terrain, you had to buy and install aftermarket gear sets to lower your ratios.
But you still are not able to get the speeds low enough, and at the same time, the changes you made cost you valuable top speed, a compromise you had to put up with.
With the Weismann Dual-Sport 2 speed gearbox, you can have the best of both worlds. Effectively you can now have 5 speeds for the most difficult terrains, and 5 speeds for the fast terrains!
This is the ideal gearbox for those competing in races like the King of the Hammers, where you need the lowest possible ratios to negotiate the tight boulder trails, and the highest possible ratios to fly across the desert.
With 8 ratios to choose from, you can find the right ratio for your particular needs - whether you have 35 inch tires, or your YXZ has the latest turbo kit. Our lowest Lo ratio is 3.02, and the highest Lo ratio is 1.21.
For those of you that have already installed lower ratios into your YXZ, the Dual-Sport can get help you go slower. Or it can allow you to keep the same ratios you now have and you can gear it to go faster again.
The Dual-Sport mounts directly to the transmission, and once in place, you still have access to your clutch. The Dual-Sport works with standard clutches and lock out clutches. It also works with the standard paddle shift equipped YXZs.
The Dual-Sport can be installed without removing the transmission from the vehicle. It is light weight and compact. Using the same oil system of the transmission, it is designed to drop in with the least amount of changes.
The Weismann Dual-Sport is shifted with a small shift handle that is directly connected to the gearbox for maximum feel. The shift handle will be positioned just left of the emergency brake, on the center counsel.
We appreciate all the phone calls, emails, kind words and thanks we have received this past week.
The demand has been overwhelming, so we have switched gears so to speak.
We are now making a pre-production run of 25 units. These will be the field test units to make sure everything is good to go before we launch into higher production. We are seeking the racers and the hard core users. They are going to be built to order, there is nothing sitting on the shelves yet. So with that in mind, think about what lo gear ratio you are going to want.
We are planning for the first units to hit the ground in August or sooner... of course with the current world environment, that might change, but that is our goal.
We are taking orders now.
