BUILD YOUR OWN SURVIVAL KIT

Everyone has a list of things they bring on a ride. It ranges from food, drinks and tools to a GPS unit, camera and cell phone. Of course, different rides have different requirements, but there are five things we bring on every ride. We call this our UTV survival box. It goes on every ride […]

RIDING THE UTV TECH TRAJECTORY

As a teenaged motocross racer, reading the first issue of Dirt Bike magazine (November 1971) changed my life. Every month afterwards, I eagerly awaited the new Dirt Bike, read it from cover to cover, and dreamed of working for DB. New-model issues were especially interesting, and I got to experience the difference between the ’72 […]

OLD IS GOOD

I was digging through my closet a while ago, and I pulled out an old Polaris T-shirt that had a simple but powerful graphic—just the Polaris star logo with “50 years, 1954–2004” written beneath it. I remember being impressed when Polaris celebrated their 50th year in business. The off-road vehicle market is tough and competitive, and […]

2020 SPORT 4X4 UTVs

The performance wars between UTV manufacturers escalate for 2020, and sport-minded UTV drivers win! Can-Am’s new X3 Turbo RR models deliver 195 horsepower, Polaris unleashes the new RZR Pro XP, Honda introduces new four-seat Talons, Kawasaki jumps into the game with the new KRX 1000, and that’s just a taste of the UTV performance feast […]

2020 KAWASAKI TERYX KRX 1000

Those of us who grew up with a world of Japanese ATVs and dirt bikes have been patiently waiting since 2013 for one of the “Big Four” to come out with a RZR-like SxS with the Japanese fit and finish and quality standards. Recently, Yamaha then Honda both gave us great machines, but not necessarily […]

2020 HONDA TALON 1000X-4

Honda’s sport UTVs were the sport’s most eagerly anticipated machines partly because enthusiasts had to wait so long for them, but mainly because of Honda’s track record for offering outstanding quality, engineering and performance. Honda wasn’t trying to build suspense. It spends more time testing and developing its vehicles than other manufacturers, and it’s time […]

2020 CAN-AM DEFENDER PRO HD10

Can-Am introduced the Defender utility UTV line five years ago, and the line grew to 17 models of HD5, HD8 and HD10 three- and six-seat UTVs by 2018. For 2020 there are 26 Defender models to choose from, and we got to check out three new HD10 Defenders at west Texas’ Y O Ranch: the […]

2020 POLARIS RZR PRO XP 4

Just as the family trips to the dunes get into full swing, Polaris drops their ultimate family offering. It’s called the 2020 Polaris RZR Pro XP4. Not only is this machine redesigned for better performance, the cockpit has new, never-before-seen features, making the driving experience even better. Available in three trim levels: the Pro XP […]

CAN-AM’S APACHE BACKCOUNTRY LT SNOW-TRACK KITS

When the snow starts to fly at your favorite ride spot, have you been forced to pack it in and wait for spring? Even though BRP sells a great line of snow machines under the Ski-Doo brand, they want you to enjoy your Maverick, Defender and Outlanders in winter, too. For this season, BRP has […]

CODY BRADBURY’S #1X WORCS RS1

Cody Bradbury won the World Off-Road Championship Series 2018 Pro Stock UTV Championship in a RZR XP 1000 and switched to the RZR RS1 for his title defense this season. The season didn’t start well for Cody with a 15th at Buffalo Bill’s, but then he rebounded with a pair of seconds at the next […]

There are also Rise Child, Rise Youth, Rise Adult and […]

ASSAULT INDUSTRIES GHOST TINTED SUN VISORS

Assault Industries’ Ghost Tinted sun visors are similar to sun visors in automobiles. They mount to the UTV’s cage and can be pulled down easily when needed, or stowed away and out of sight. The visors use Assault’s proprietary break-away mechanism that makes it easy to position the visors and can be tightened so that […]

GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN

For most of us, going riding starts hours before you buckle your belts and twist a UTV’s ignition key or push a start button. There’s loading up, gassing up, checking routes, picking up friends, and sometimes fishin’, fightin’, fixin’ flats and depending on your routine and the characters you ride with, who knows what else. […]
