Sick of the delay you get when pushing your accelerator pedal?

HIKE IT has a solution to get rid of that pedal lag!

The HIKE IT X5 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 X5 is Plug & Play!

What is the HIKE IT X5?

The HIKE IT X5 is a 'bite-size' throttle response controller that removes delays in your electronic accelerator pedal. In short, the X5 will get a faster response from your engine and therefore you'll get a modified acceleration depending on the X5 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 X5.

The X5 has 4 different control modes: Eco/4x4, Sport/Tow, HIKE IT High Performance and Normal Modes. Each of the 3 Modes have 10 different levels of throttle response available for selection

The X5 has a clever PCB module which updates the points of reference for a vehicles throttle mapping. Throttle Lag is added by manufacturers for a number of reasons including fuel economy. The HIKEit X5 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 cars accelerator pedal.

HIKE IT mode

HIKEit’s Performance mode (with 9 level settings) is not for the ‘Sunday driver’. HIKEit 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 X5 into HIKEit Mode setting 9.

Sport/Tow Mode

HIKE IT's Sport/Tow mode (with 10 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.

Eco/4x4 Mode

Economy Mode (E) Economy mode has 10 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.

Clever Mode

3 Clever Modes

The X5 has 3 clever pre-set modes to give you complete pedal control.

Quality built

Quality-Built Dual Chipset

The heart of the X5 is the dual 32BIT Chipset sourced from industry experts which leaves it's 16BIT competition in the dust.

Stable Software

The Most Stable Software

Stay safe with the most stable Throttle Controller software on the market.

Lifetime Replacement Warranty

Lifetime Replacement Warranty

Feel confident knowing that in the unlikely event that the controller becomes faulty you can just get in touch with HIKE IT for a replacement.

Anti-Theft Mode

Anti-Theft Mode

Entering the Anti-Theft function will lock the car's throttle and will not accelerate at idle until unlocked.

Auto Brightness

Auto Brightness Sensor

The X5 has a clever Ambient Light Sensor that will adjust the LCD brightness automatically depending on the current light situation.

Optimisation isn’t just plain old optimisation

How the HIKEit X5 Stacks up against the Competition

The most widely used doesn’t always mean the best. Which is true in the instance of throttle controllers. When selecting a throttle controller it’s important that performance and reliability are put ahead of brand name.

Improve Power without additional stress on your Vehicle, just better response!

The HIKE IT X5 works just like the 'Sport' button found in many cars by cutting down the amount of pedal travel required to achieve 'Throttle Wide Open' which will allow you to access the engines full potential. The HIKE IT X5 is pre-programmed with 3 adjustable mode maps which are finely tuned for your vehicle. Each function will alter the throttle signal in a different way which can be set depending on your preference.

Transmission Specific Settings

When gears changed in both Auto and Manual Transmissions there is always a slight delay in throttle response which can affect take off speed and general safety. The HIKE IT X5 sits between the pedal and your car's ECU to intercept the signal and process it in order to quicken the response time. The X5 has individual setting based on you car's transmission to tune the signal further while maintaining the original feel of an Auto or Manual Transmission.

Auto Brightness Adjustment

Built into the face of the HIKE IT X5 is a clever Ambient Light Sensor which will adjust the brightness of the blue display light so you can see the settings perfectly in day light and you won't be blinded at night time.
