The Trial-specific, Boyesen performance Reed System has been designed to increase throttle response and acceleration, while also broadening peak RPM horsepower output, all while having been life tested to outperform previous systems in the area of reed petal durabilitySmooth. Sharp. Smart. The result: Full Spectrum horsepower and lightning – fast response for Gas Gas competitors.

Boyesen is excited to see Observed Trials riders realize the benefits that the 2-stroke engine platform provides. Riders world-wide now have the ability to select from one of three reed system product lines; each now designed to meet the needs and special requirements that Observed Trials demands. Boyesen’s performance reed systems now provide riders with a cost-effective and easy means to precisely tune their power delivery with a tiered selection of reed products starting with the proven Superstock Reeds, moving into the classic Power Reeds, and then ultimately reaching the highest levels of performance with the new Carbontech Performance Reed System.




The most durable materials. The most lifespan.

Boyesen’s new Performance Reed systems feature category-leading toughening additives to increase reed petal lifespan by resisting breakdown from damaging agents found in fuel. This is done to ensure a long-lasting seal between the petals and the intake tract time and time again, which results in more consistent horsepower for longer periods of time between general intake reed maintenance. 

X-Cross Carbon Matrix


The best carbon material. The most intelligent performance carbon weave.

Boyesen’s XCROSS carbon matrix woven reeds feature aerospace carbon material interwoven into tension combinations that maximize power delivery and deliver superior off-idle throttle response. Boyesen engineers specifically tune the carbon matrix tension using a proprietary weave formula that is tested and optimized to give the best response and the most usable power delivery for Observed Trials riders world-wide.
