2020 CAN-AM LINEUP

Their ATV lineup received a lot of change for 2019, so we don’t see many new upgrades this go-round, but we can’t exactly say they needed any this year.…

CVT BELT BUYER’S GUIDE

-- For a wide number of the most popular and best-selling ATVs and UTVs, the heart of the power delivery system is the CVT belt. There are a few extreme ATV riders who are hard on the CVT belts, but time and mileage are the most common reasons to change an ATV’s CVT belt. UTVs are heavier, so they are harder on CVT belts, whether they are high-horsepower sport models or not. No matter what your CVT-motivated machine is, it will need a new belt sooner or later. We based our belt guide on the Polaris RZR XP 1000 model. It is a…

2019 CAN-AM MAVERICK SPORT X RC

-- On The Rocks UTV Test --  By the staff of Dirt Wheels Can-Am has made certain that Dirt Wheels has been along for the entire rise of the new Maverick line. The first release was the 50-inch Maverick Trail 800 and 1000. Fifty-inch machines are vital for some trail networks, but they are by definition a little limited in appeal, so we were not at all surprised when Can-Am released the Maverick Sport. Using the same basic skeleton and V-twin engine architecture, Can-Am announced the 60-inch-wide Maverick Sport…
