 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 you're stomping a sponge; you should get immediate response from your engine, which is why we developed the HIKE IT X5.

The X5 has 3 different control modes: Eco/4x4, Sport/Tow, and HIKE IT, the highest performance mode. Each of the 3 modes has 10 different levels of throttle response available for selection.

How it Works

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.

It actually works!

I have a 2016 Jeep JKU that has an absolute horrendous throttle lag from the factory. Being a 6 speed, this cause major problems trying to take off on steep streets. I didn’t even know throttle controllers existed before I came across this one on a YouTube video.

I don’t need anything fancy so I only ordered the X5 model and let me tell you, it has more than enough options for me. I wanted something that I could set and forget. The eco-mode is downright hilarious because even if you floor it, the Jeep is less than lackadaisical. I tried it in the Hike IT mode and wild comical, it would be unrealistic for daily driving. You could probably breathe on the pedal and it would put it at 5000 RPMs. The sweet spot is in the sport mode. I put it all the way up to nine and then went down from there until it felt like a normal old school throttle cable. I feel like this thing brought new life to my daily driver and I would never want to go back. I can’t recommend this thing enough! Unlike the norm, I mounted mine underneath the dash next to the gas pedal because I like the clean look of the factory. Plus I don’t plan to change it on the fly. Absolutely love it. Highly recommended!

An absolute must have

After having my Subaru Crosstrek 6MT for over 4 years, I finally pulled the trigger and made the purchase. The HIKE-IT is well worth the money and makes a massive difference in throttle response. I've fallen in love with driving my car all over again.

Not bad!

Review is for a 2017 Ram 1500 Hemi 5.7 with 3.92 axle. It's a good controller especially for the price. I only have 2 small complaints. The settings are very touchy to the point where anything above sport 3 is pretty much unusable so it doesn't really allow for fine tuning. Also, I'd like to see a unit like this with 2 knobs/dials instead of push buttons. Aside from that, it's still a good unit for the price I paid with the Xmas deal. Eco mode works for snow and off road driving but 9 in Eco is the least responsive, contrary to what a HikeIt rep told me.
