View Full Version : Platform load rating X2 ?

02-03-2011, 05:03 PM
Anyone know the safe load rating/capacity for an 09 X2 swimplatform ( glass ) ?

I run a small 120kg fat sack sausage on my platform when surfing, so far so good :D

Ive seen a few crew doing this, anyone here ? and how is she holding up ?

No clue. It doesn't fall off?

Nope, tie downs do the trick.

No clue either, but I have had at least 3 adults standing/danceing etc. on mine and it has not fallen off yet.:D

I've got some gel cracks on the transom above one of my platform mounts ('06 X2). I'm pretty sure it occured when a newbie got confused and pulled a partial butt-drop getting in the water. (He was no more than a 140lb-er, but probably caused lots of leverage hitting near the edge on a corner). I think transom flex may be the weak link, and I've seen/heard of those cracks on other X2s. I haven't been in any hurry to spend the $900 on a quality repair.

One of my buddies, Tyler, had his swim platform break off while hosting a dance party on it. I'll ask him what the load rating is... ;)
