Popular Science magazine chose BRP's 2009 Sea-Doo GTX iS watercraft with iControl technology as the grand award winner for the "Best of What's New" feature.

As the only marine product in the running, BRP's Sea-Doo GTX has earned a number of awards in addition to this, as well as recognition by the Coast Guard for the Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR), the only braking technology on a watercraft.

"For 22 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprised and amaze us - those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what's possible in the future," said Mark Jannot, editor-in-chief of Popular Science, in a statement. "The Best of What's New Award is the magazine's top honor and the 100 winners - chosen from among thousands of entrants - represent the highest level of achievement in their fields."

The GTX features iControl, innovative watercraft technology that integrates new features, namely iBR, which gives the rider more control and faster stopping ability.
