KYB Expands KADS Applications

KYB Expands the application of KADSTM, an electronically controlled suspension system for snowmobiles

KYB is expanding the application of KADS*, an electronic suspension system that fuses our
core control and hydraulic technologies, to snowmobiles. The system includes the addition of KYB’s
proprietary attitude control technology based on our “Ground-Hook” concept, which brings
cornering to a new level that minimizes roll. As a result, it provides the rider with stable ground
contact and vehicle attitude (secure feeling) of both skis in all riding situations, contributing to high
stability and controllability as well as supporting their riding skill.

KADS is scheduled to be installed in the 2022 models of the MXZ X-RS, RENEGADE X-RS
and MACH Z snowmobiles of Bombardier Recreational Products Inc.

Going forward, KYB will continue our efforts to develop new products and propose systems that
respond to a diverse range of customer demands.

*KADS: KYB Actimatic Damper System. “Actimatic” is a term that combines the words “active” and “automatic,” expressing the high maneuverability obtained through automatic adjustments.
