CKX: our philosophy, our DNA
CKX. Three letters and one way to be, think and move.
CKX is a deep sense of freedom, pleasure shared with people as passionate as you are. It's a sensation of being one with the elements and dominating them.
CKX: three letters that speak to every little muscle in your body, telling it to take Charge. Fuel up on adrenaline, travel Kilometers, live out your passions to the Xtreme. Do what you want, go where you want, nothing can stop you.
The CKX logo, which, among other things, represents the place where four roads converge, symbolizes the universe of motorized sports enthusiasts seeking freedom.
In the CKX logo, we can also see a person, subtly reminding us that at the core of such passion and sensations lies a human being. First, the one who dominates the elements, but also the one who creates, promotes the parts and the accessories that allow all snowmobile, ATV and motorcycle enthusiasts to take charge, travel kilometers and live out their passions to the extreme.
A remarkable story
Everything starts in 1991 when Kimpex asks its R&D team to come up with helmet designs and doing so, CKX was born. CKX first's helmets were intended for snowmobilers, they were the VG200, VG300 and VG500. From then on, CKX built its place on the market by offering quality helmets at competitive prices.
In the winter of 1992, gaining in popularity, CKX launches a line of accessories including boots, gloves and mittens.
In 1995, CKX expands its line of products by offering motorcycle helmets. With eye-catching multicolour graphics, CKX captures more and more consumers’ attention.
In 2005, CKX launches its revolutionary helmet: the TRANZ. Up until this day, the TRANZ is still one of the most appreciated helmets in the powersports world. It is easily recognizable because of its lines inspired by stealth aircrafts like the F-117 Night Hawk and the B-2 Spirit.
In 2007, SKIN, CKX’s underwear line, is launched. SKIN’s mission is to offer light and comfortable underwear, perfect for wearing under winter jackets, pants & bibs as well as other type of clothing.
