SCOSCHE UTV PRODUCTS

— Checking out some smart new items for your UTV —

The company name is pronounced “skosh.” Now that we have that out of the way, Scosche is known for its huge catalog of car audio components as well as digital and mobile device carriers and mounts for on- and off-road use. For powersports, Scosche has a line of device mounts and standard UTV accessories, such as mirrors, grab handles, jumper boxes, whip/flag mounts, boom boxes and fire extinguisher mounts.                                     

FEATURES:

Most of the products have a modular clamping system called a BaseClamp that allows you to either use the same mounts for different products or the same product on different machines just by changing a simple clamp. So, if you go from a Polaris to a Can-Am, or you want to move a product like a GoPro mount from a 1 3/4 roll bar tube to a 1 1/2-inch harness bar, it’s quick and fairly inexpensive.

We hope you never need one, but if you or one of your riding buddies do, a quick-release fire extinguisher can save the day. The Scosche product fits most normal-size fire extinguisher bottles, which you can pick up at an auto parts store or even Walmart.

CONSTRUCTION:

All of the products are made from CNC-machined billet aluminum with smooth, rounded edges and a matte black finish. The quick-release pins and other hardware are stainless steel or aluminum. As an added touch, Scosche supplies a thin film strip that you can put between the BaseClamp and your tubing to prevent scratching.

WHO IT’S FOR:

The product and individual mounts fit on tubing sizes from 1.5, 1.65, 1.75, 1.85 and 1.875 inches all the way up to 2 inches, so all products will fit any brand of UTV, custom truck or buggy.

PERFORMANCE:

The quick-release fire extinguisher mount fit great and was super easy to deploy. Fitment was also great on the 9-inch convex rear-view mirror we sampled; however, you can only tilt it up or down with tools. We would prefer a ball-type adjustment, but the product itself looks and works great. Scosche has other mirror options and lower-cost fire extinguisher mounts as well.

THE VERDICT:

Scosche is bringing even more quality components to the powersports world, giving customers choices to personalize their rides.
