Slow your hopped-up and loaded side-by-side down faster with Wilwood

It’s no longer a surprise that side-by-sides have taken over the recreational and racing off-road market. Can-Am’s new Maverick R just finished 1st overall at the BITD Silver State 300, beating every trophy truck, race car, motorcycle and ATV in the process – who saw that coming?

At the same time, the SXS aftermarket has exploded with new products that range from 300-plus-horsepower turbo and supercharger kits to $11,000 roof mounted sound systems, suspension systems are being upgraded to accept 35-inch tires and beyond, heavy rooftop tents are becoming a thing for the multi-day adventure seeker, and we’re adding even more weight with chromoly cages and glass windshields. Seriously, have you tried to lift one of these windshields? They’re heavy! With so many options to personalize your side-by-side, most of you have ignored the one performance upgrade that should have been at the top of your list – BRAKES!

Wilwood is the brand that the Honda Factory Racing Talon team trusts for the extreme conditions of the SCORE Baja 1000.

Even without all of that extra weight and power, most side-by-side braking systems can be described as adequate at best. A good set of brakes will make you faster by setting up corners quicker rather than blowing through them. If you’re a Polaris RZR, Can-Am X3, or Honda Talon owner, Wilwood has the brake systems you need to optimize your side-by-side’s stopping power.

Wilwood manufactures brake kits for most Polaris RZR models back to 2014, and has new kits arriving soon for the RZR Turbo R and RZR Pro R.  Wilwood has brake kits for all Honda Talon models in stock.  Wilwood manufactures brake kits for Can-Am Maverick X3 models, and we’re sure they’re hard at work developing kits for the new Maverick R.

All Wilwood brake kits come in in recreational and race spec with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers with drilled (for brake cooling) or plane-face rotors.
