At the dawn of 2022, Polaris made a HUGE announcement with the release of the biggest, baddest, most powerful RZR ever with the RZR Pro R. Complete with a 225 horsepower inline 4 cylinder engine, 29 inches of usable travel, a bullet-proof build quality, and a new DV DYNAMIX FOX live valve suspension, the Polaris RZR Pro R is the "most" of everything. In this video we breakdown the RZR Pro R details on a RZR Pro R 4. Look for our review video coming soon.
In February of 2022 a new undisputed most powerful side-by-side was crowned with the introduction of the Polaris Pro R. At 225 horsepower, 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, 24.5-inches of travel, FOX LIVE VALVE shocks, and all kinds of durablilty and technology this RZR is THE beast. If you want the fastest, most capable, and priciest sport side-by-side on the planet then this is your RZR. That said, how is it really, and how does this RZR really perform? Is it worth all the hype?
With all the focus these days on top of the line vehicle models with $40k pricetags, there is little focus put on entry-level trim models. With that said the "entry" level Can-Am Commander MAX DPS offers a lot of side-by-side for the money with power steering being the only real additional feature on the side-by-side, but the price tag comes in at $20,999. Luke with Dirt Trax TV dives into all the capability you get with this "base" level Commander MAX DPS along with a review of this side-by-side.
This year has proven to be a big year for both Polaris and the pure sport-wide open side-by-side crowd with the release of the RZR Turbo R and RZR Pro R side-by-sides. We saw all the specs and sat on the call when Polaris walked through all the details of these vehicles, and they are on paper truly amazing. The question that remains is if these new side-by-sides can live up to the expectations. AJ with Dirt Trax TV answers that question in this performance review video.
Since the introduction of both the RZR Pro R and Turbo R back in January, these two vehicles have been the talk of the industry. The reason for this is pretty obvious. These are the widest most advanced and pricey production side-by-sides ever. The Turbo R comes to the table with the same 181 turbo engine that is found in the Pro XP but with a completely new suspension with travel numbers that are mind blowing. Dirt Trax has now had a RZR Turbo R 4 dropped off for the testing and Luke
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. Still very much fun to drive the RZR Trail S 1000 is a fantastic trail side-by-side that doesn't break the bank the way the more powerful RZRs tend to. In this review video from
Every vehicle family Can-Am produces comes complete with an X MR version which is outfitted to hit the deep mud holes whereever those can be found. The Can-Am Commander is not exception with a Commander X MR perfectly suited to those who want to get deeply dirty. Though we have not had a chance to climb into the cockpit of a new redesigned Commander X MR (or any redesigned Commander for that matter), the good news is Dirt Trax has, and they have put togther a review video about
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? In this video Luke with Dirt Trax TV goes into the nuts and bolts of what makes the RMAX2 1000 Sport unique and how that translates into a different RMAX 2 1000 experience.
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
