UTV TEST: Hisun Strike 800

Having tested the Strike 1000 in April and the youth Strike 250 in May, we thought we’d try out the Strike 800 this issue. Not everyone can afford the extreme-performance UTVs of today, and the Strike 800 delivers a lot of standard features at a low price that makes it appealing. Here’s the story on Hisun’s sporty UTV with its second-largest engine supported by CVTech’s new, more durable Trailbloc IBC clutch. WHAT’S A STRIKE 800? Hisun is a long-time manufacturer of ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles and scooters in China, and…

PRODUCT TEST: Arisun Aftershock XD tires and Raceline Black Mamba Beadlock wheels

WHAT IT IS: Arisun’s Aftershock XD is designed for extra traction and durability on hard and mixed terrain.

Raceline’s Black Mamba beadlocks are…

ATV TEST: Arctic Cat Alterra 700 XT

Arctic Cat rolled out a completely new line of ATVs in 2015—the XRs—so ATV enthusiasts were surprised to hear the XRs were replaced by the Alterra line for 2016. The XR platform worked just as intended, but XR name didn’t, so Arctic Cat kept the engineering and replaced the name. The machines got some changes for 2016, too, so we got the top-of-the-line Alterra, the 700 XT, for a full test to see how it performs. WHAT MAKES AN ALTERRA DIFFERENT? Alterra is the new name for Arctic Cat’s newest ATV platform. On the…

THE FIRST RZR

I was searching my impressive, but not impressively organized collection of old “4-Wheel ATV Action” issues for the test of the very first Polaris RZR and I wasn’t having much luck. I remember the year of the issue well, it was 2007, and the first RZR, called a “Ranger RZR”, was released as a 2008 model. The popularity of the Yamaha Rhino was already surging so we expected the more sport focused Polaris was going to fuel the growth in UTVing in a big way, but growth turned out to be more of an explosion. The issue with the…

PRODUCT TEST: Excalibur ATV/UTV Lug Nuts

WHAT IT IS: One of the first things UTV owners change on their machines are the tires and wheels. They’re also a must for those who have ITP and Pro Armor/ PURE Polaris, among others, that don’t have clearance to get a wrench on the OEM lug nuts. WHAT YOU GET: Each Excalibur ATV/UTV Lug Nut kit includes 16 chrome lug nuts and a special installation tool. INSTALLATION: When we got our Pro Armor/PURE Polaris Sixr wheels for the XP Turbo Polaris Show N Shine Facebook contest, the lug holes weren’t big enough to get…
