Lynx is originally a Finnish brand of chainsaws, currently owned by the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products.

Lynx is a snowmobile brand in Europe and has made many unique inventions in snowmobile technology.

Lynx snowmobiles are designed for rough conditions. The newest Lynx snowmobiles are built on the Ski-Doo Rev-XP platform with minor differences (RE-X-frame), but they use another type of rear suspension called PPS (Pauli Piippola Suspension) made for rougher conditions. The PPS is tougher, but weighs more than the regular Ski-Doo suspension systems. [1]

Lynx snowmobiles feature the Bombardier Recreational Products legendary Rotax engine, which is known for its outstanding performance and reliability.[2] This engine design is also used in Ski-Doo brand snowmobiles.

The 2011 Lynx lineup features four different categories of snowmobiles which range in performance and function. Current options are: Sport, Crossover, Touring, and Utility[3]
