Sea-Doo’s budget-priced Spark already sports the playful feel and handling of old-school personal watercraft. The new-for-’17 Spark Trixx attempts to take that fun to the next level with a collection of add-ons designed to further enhance the craft’s freestyle characteristics.

The primary addition is a retooled version of Sea-Doo’s electronic Variable Trim System (VTS). For the Trixx, Sea-Doo increased both the upward and downward range of the jet-pump nozzle, allowing angles as high as 17 degrees upward and negative-6 degrees downward. It’s the 10 degrees of additional upward movement that makes the most difference.
