The HIKE IT X9 Throttle Controller is the most advanced controller on the market and designed specifically to "wake up" your car by reducing throttle lag and improving the response time from your vehicle's "fly by wire" accelerator. Best of all, the X9 is Plug & Play!
What is the HIKE IT X9?
The HIKE IT X9 is a 'bite-size' throttle response controller that removes delays in your electronic accelerator pedal. In short, the X9 will get a faster response from your engine and therefore you'll get a modified acceleration depending on the X9 setting you select.
When you push your car's pedal it shouldn't feel like your stomping a sponge; you should get immediate response from your engine which is why we developed the HIKE IT X9.
In addition to Automatic Mode Selection which will intelligently learn your driving style and the current situation and adapt the mode to suit, the X9 has 4 different control modes: Eco/4x4, Cruise, Sport/Tow, and the Highest Performance mode, HIKE IT mode. Each of the 4 modes has 9 different adjustable levels available for selection.

How it works
The X9 has a clever PCB module which updates the points of reference for a vehicle's throttle mapping. Throttle Lag is added by manufacturers for a number of reasons including fuel economy. The HIKE IT X9 maintains the standard parameters of your vehicle; however, introduces a sharper throttle curve (or smoother when in 4x4 Eco mode) and reduces the "dead zone" in your car's accelerator pedal.
Auto IQ Selection Mode:
HIKE IT's Auto IQ Control Mode lets the driver set and forget while the X9 learns the driver's behaviour and selects the mode from the best of 36 mode settings based on the current driving situation. Generally, fly-by-wire pedal accelerator systems have two sensors that measure both how hard and far the pedal; the X9 tweaks these for a more enjoyable, safer and fuel-saving drive.
HIKE IT's Performance mode (with 9 level settings) is not for the 'Sunday driver'. HIKE IT setting 1 is classified as intense while setting 7-9 is like 'launch mode'. Touching the mode button while in any mode will activate 'Over-Take mode' that will instantly put the X9 into HIKE IT Mode setting 9.
HIKE IT's Cruise mode (with 9 level settings) is a toned-down version of the popular sport/tow mode which will give you more of a boost than your car's original setting. It's perfect for everyday driving that won't blow out your fuel bill and knock your socks off.
HIKE IT's Sport/Tow mode (with 9 level settings) is a fun way to get around without the adrenalin boost of HIKE IT mode. It's perfect when towing anything and will adjust perfectly to the application at hand. After Auto IQ Mode, Sport/Tow mode is the most favoured.
Economy Mode (E) Economy mode has 9 settings that reduce the response from the pedal which will improve fuel economy and with a dampened response it can be particularly handy in situations such as driving off-road, towing, beach driving etc.
The X9 Smart Pedal introduces an additional 2 driving modes over the competition with 36 driver levels.
The heart of the X9 is the dual 32BIT Chipset sourced from industry experts which leaves it’s 16BIT competition in the dust.
In Auto Mode the X9 Smart Pedal will study the way you drive then select the mode and tune setting to suit your driving style and current driving situation.
If no setting has been changed for 5 seconds just push the MODE button and jump straight into HIKE IT 9.
Entering the Anti-Theft function will lock the car's throttle and will not accelerate at idle until unlocked.
The X9 has a clever Ambient Light Sensor that will adjust the LCD brightness automatically depending on the current light situation.
