ATV TEST: POLARIS SPORTSMAN 850 ULTIMATE TRAIL EDITION

As good as it getsBy the staff of Dirt Wheels There are subtle but important changes and updates to the 2021 Polaris Sportsman 850. In this case we are testing the Ultimate Trail Edition. That whole Ultimate Trail Edition (UTE) designation and specifications are new for 2021, so the UTE is, by definition, all new, despite sharing a great deal with current and past twin-cylinder Sportsman models. Regardless of the percentage that is new, the package is impressive, and we were excited to get some trail miles under the…

2020 YAMAHA GRIZZLY XT-R

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 YAMAHA GRIZZLY XT-R The big bad bear. Yamaha’s Grizzly has topped the mountain year after year as the brand’s premier sport utility ATV. It can paw its way through thick mud, traverse river beds on the hunt, and scale the steeps at a quick clip. Yet, the Yamaha can also retract its claws and conquer terrain in comfort. While the Grizzly is capable of extreme enjoyment on the trails, it doubles as a handy rig around the ranch, too. For 2020, Yamaha decided to outfit a few UTV…

WARN TOOL ROLL RECOVERY KIT

-- WHAT YOU NEED WHEN STUCK IN THE MUD -- If you regularly come across mud while riding your 4x4 quad or UTV you probably have a winch mounted on the front of it. An experienced mud rider knows the drill of grabbing the hook and pulling the winch line out to secure it to something. However, it's not always a simple deal.

SHOOTOUT: Can-Am Outlander L 500 vs. Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi

We pitted the $6499 Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi against the $6999 Can-Am Outlander 500L to see if an older straight-axle machine can still hang with a modern-day ATV with independent rear suspension. The two contestants are a lot closer in price than they are in design. The Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi is Suzuki’s lowest-priced 4x4, while Can-Am does have one model cheaper in the 450L, which only sells for $6399. So if power or speed is of no concern, the 450 might be a closer comparison, and it comes in the same chassis as the 500.…
