STI SAND TIRES

  For dedicated dune riding, having a set of paddles on your UTV makes things much more fun. However, the power from the newest big-bore UTVs and ATVs (e.g., the Commander, RZR XP, Wildcat, Outlander, Sportsman, Brute Force or Thundercat) have smaller, 25- and 26-inch paddles spinning and begging for mercy. Sure, you could opt […]

3BUILT REMOTE KILL SWITCH

3BUILT REMOTE KILL SWITCH       So you think little Seymour is ready. You sit him on his little ATV or minibike and turn him loose for the first time. He laughs deliriously, turns to look at you and runs headlong into the trash cans. He’s crying, your wife is furious and someone has to clean […]

STI BLACK DIAMOND TIRES

STI BLACK DIAMOND XTR TIRES From what we’ve seen, the sport of ATV riding is as strong as ever. Even if quad sales are down, people are still riding every weekend, it’s just that they’re doing it on older machinery. And as long as people are still riding, tires are still wearing out. Despite that, […]

PRECISION STEERING DAMPER

PRECISION STEERING DAMPER       Some people are crazy. They run double marathons, bungee jump and eat Ukrainian food. But riding a performance ATV without a steering damper? That’s just nutty. A steering damper takes something that is intrinsically difficult–holding on to a 40-horsepower ATV while it’s doing wild things–and makes it much easier than it […]

EC3D COMPRESSION GEAR

EC3D COMPRESSION GEAR   It doesn’t sound pleasant. Compression tights seem somewhat medieval and counterintuitive. But at some point you have to surrender to the science. Sports experts have accepted the benefits of targeted compression on your limbs for increased athletic performance. The idea is to direct blood flow into areas were it’s needed most. […]

VP U4.4 RACE FUEL

VP U4.4 RACE FUEL             Motor work is terribly permanent. What if it turns out that you don’t like more horsepower? What if it makes your ATV harder to ride and less fun? Not only have you spend thousands to mess up your machine, you’ll have to spend more to go back.      That doesn’t happen […]

FOX FLOAT R SHOCKS

FOX FLOAT R SHOCKS       If you race, you need shocks. It’s that simple. The best racers in the world wouldn’t dream of showing up on the start line with stock hardware. There are some exceptions, but the front shocks on many ATVs are there to keep the frame from hitting the floor in the […]

DG R-SERIES EXHAUST

DG O-SERIES EXHAUST There are two reasons people buy aftermarket exhaust systems: 1) performance and 2) the Rolex factor. Even though most riders won’t admit it, the second reason seems to be a major factor; it’s the “Hey look at me, I have money to stuff in a Howitzer” syndrome. There’s no other explanation for […]

RACE TECH

RACE TECH G3-S SHOCKS Don’t be ashamed. We all do it and it’s perfectly normal. We all ride utility quads faster than they were designed to go. Even though there’s a well-trod path to building a 450 race quad, building a high-performance 4×4 is a little more off-beat. But the needs are almost the same. […]

AME HEATED GRIPS

AME HEATED GRIPS Cold weather defeated Napoleon. What chance do we have? When the temperature drops it doesn’t matter how great your quad is running. It doesn’t matter how perfect the trails are or how well you’re riding. When you’re cold, all fun stops immediately.Over the years we’ve leaned how to fortify ourselves against cold […]

HINSON BTL CLUTCH

HINSON BTL CLUTCH       There’s a quiet revolution taking place in the Pro ranks of ATV motocross. No one really wants to talk about it, but most of the top riders have started using Hinson’s BTL clutch over the last two years. The Team Yoshimura riders were using it first, so they didn’t want to […]
