Kawasaki was a lilttle late to the sport side-by-side game, but it is here now with the Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000. Over 100 horsepower, sport side-by-side trailing arm suspension, cross-over springs, and a big cab with full-doors are just a few of the things the Teryx KRX 1000 brings to the trail or track. We drove it at the launch event, and were very impressed with this super-heavy duty built side-by-side. Our friends over at Dirt Trax TV put together this review video on their thoughts
The RZR "trail" and RZR S were both the start of the sport side-by-side no matter how you cut it. Updated for 2021 the Polaris RZR Trail and Trail S models have evolved yet again with improvements to these RZRs. We at ATV ESCAPE have been behind the wheel of both of these vehicles and the improvements are a welcome thing.

For 2021 Yamaha brought out a new Wolverine RMAX model called the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport. The new RMAX2 1000 Sport comes complete with a higher-end more adjustable FOX shock, beadlock wheels with special tires, and clad in Yamaha blue, but what makes it a "new" model beyond the specs?

For model year 2022 Can-Am debuted its Smart-SHOX technology on the Maverick X3 family. Competing directly with the Polaris DYNAMIX Live Valve system, Smart-SHOX dynamically controls the shocks' dampening on the fly based upon the terrain, but with one big difference: rebound control. Yes, Smart-SHOX controls both compression and rebound, which at the time (Polaris DYNAMIX now has this also), was unique. Our friends at Dirt TRAX received a Smart-SHOX Maverick X3 MAX model and did a review video on
King Of The Hammers is truly an epic race. It is epic for the racers, it is epic for the teams, and it is epic for the fans. Boulders the size of a Volkswagen, vertical shelf drops longer than a side-by-side, open desert sections, and inclines and declines steep enough to see only ground or sky are all in store for those daring enough to race in the King Of The Hammers race. It is widely considered the most brutal race one-day race in the World. King Of The Hammers takes place every year in Johnson
