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. It seems to be more than just a prototype concept vehicle, because rumor has it from reliable sources that the Z10 is gearing up for production. The engine is a fuel-injected V-twin displacing 963cc, with 8-valves. There's talk that it has been tested with a turbocharger to bump up the horsepower closer to that of a RZR Turbo.

GLOVE BUYER’S GUIDE

-- Dexterity work gloves comfortable to drive or ride with -- “Dexterity” derives from the Latin word “dexter,” which means “skill in performing tasks, especially with the hands.” We know this because Google told us so. But gloves are an important item to wear while wrenching, riding or driving. Only certain people can ride gloveless for a long duration without getting blisters. Mere mortals need extra protection. Riding gloves are starting to go up in price and are usually built thin, which means they won’t last for an…

ARGO’S FIRST EVER QUADS!

4-WHEELERS ADDED TO THEIR 6 AND 8-WHEELER LINE UP FOR 2018 -- The name Argo has always held clout in the ATV world. Argo can legitimately say that they were the first all-terrain vehicle. Fifty years ago Ontario Drive & Gear’s (ODG) first Argo amphibious machine made a literal splash in the industry with its six wheels and skid-steer steering mechanism. The name Argo is derived from the Greek mythological hero Argonaut, who had stamina on land and water. Being that the Argo is amphibious, this name…

SNOW TRACK KITS FOR QUADS & UTVs

--  For us, there are no winter breaks from riding. Some of our high-mountain trails get even better when they are covered with a few feet of snow. To access them and other mountain areas across the country, we equip many of our 4x4s with a ATV track system. Modern-day 4x4 ATVs and UTVs with their big engines, power steering and electronic fuel injection outfitted with the proper ATV track kit are the perfect winter tools for exploring deep powder or even slick, hardpacked, icy trails. However, smaller 300–400cc quads…
