The 2010 Yamaha FX Nytro replaces the heavy steel coils used in previous models with nitrogen-filled shock absorbers resulting in reduced weight and increased maneuverability for riding in deep snow. All four shocks can be adjusted with a hand pump to compensate for rider weight and ride stiffness.

Several other changes were made to the 2010 Yamaha Nytro making it lighter, more responsive and better at climbing.
