PROJECT POLARIS RZR XP 1000

-- PRO ARMOR MAKES IT EVEN BETTER -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels One of the beauties of off-road is that the sport is accessible. Chris Pino has never had much of a dirt background aside from some local mountain biking. He has owned street bikes and appreciates a performance automobile, but a friend and former coworker found a package deal of two RZR 800s and a trailer. A year later they had driven the wheels off of the 800s and were feeling the limitations in power and suspension. Pino’s daytime job is…

PROJECT CAN-AM X3 by EVOLUTION POWERSPORTS

-- 253 horsepower never disappoints, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Recently, we have found ourselves getting seat time in a variety of machines with Evolution Powersports turbo modifications.

UTV SEATS BUYER’S GUIDE

-- The best seats in the house -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels.  -- There are some off-road enthusiasts who spend a lot of time behind the wheel of a UTV, like us at Dirt Wheels; we have logged a lot of hours driving UTVs. One of the biggest things we’ve noticed is that the OEM seats can become uncomfortable, or your body moves around quite a bit depending on the model and terrain that you’re in. Whether you notice it or not, fatigue can strike when you are sitting in a seat for so long. Some of the…

THE ALL-NEW Z10: FIRST REPORT

-- HI-PERFORMANCE 1000 UTV -- Sleeker, faster and innovative is the theme for this new machine from CF Moto.
