ATV

The Quadski XL cranks up to 45 mph on land and water

With up to 45 mph (72.4 km/h) of speed potential on both land and water, the Gibbs Quadski is one of the most playful amphibious vehicles in the world. With a price tag of around US$40,000, buying Quadskis for the whole family is an expensive – maybe impossible – venture, however. Gibbs is now making it easier for additional riders to get in on the fun, with the new two-seat Quadski XL.  Read More

Six drive wheels give the new Outlander plenty of off-road capability

If four drive wheels are better than two for off-roading, it should follow that six are better than four. Six drive wheels provide the formula behind the new Can-Am Outlander 6x6 1000 XT work and recreation vehicle. The extra axle sits below a rear bed, creating a workhorse that can haul and speed with a full half-dozen clawing wheels.  Read More

The WV80 HO is uses Non-Pneumatic Tires

There’s nothing that ruins going to work like having your tires shot out with a .50 caliber machine gun round.

This military-grade All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) abandons traditional inflatable tires for Non-Pneumatic Tires (NPT) that feature a flexible polymer honeycomb.  Read More

An ARGO XTI with available canopy shows off its water skills

Many vehicles claim to be "all terrain," but few of them can match the all-out, rove-over-anything capabilities of ARGO's line of 6x6s and 8x8s. The latest member of the amphibious family is the 8x8 XTI, a vehicle designed to reach the most remote worksites on Earth.  Read More

Canada-based robotics company Clearpath Robotics has unveiled the aptly-named Grizzly Robot Utility Vehicle: an unmanned four wheel drive robotic platform that promises to tackle the most demanding agricultural, mining, and defense tasks you can throw at it, whatever the terrain.  Read More

The Vmoto SCARTT

Quad bikes offer big off-road thrills and go-anywhere versatility for cheap dollars, but they're not the safest things in the world to ride on the road. SUVs are popular for their comfort and safety on the highway, but most are pretty limited in their off-road abilities, and they're so expensive you're unlikely to feel too carefree about throwing them down a ravine trail. The Vmoto SCARTT sits somewhere in between; a little larger and wider than a quad bike, but with two seats, seatbelts, a roll cage and genuine roadgoing ability to match its featherlight, fishtailing offroad giggle factor. The manufacturer's hoping to sell these 500cc practical fun machines for around the quarter of the price of a typical SUV. Oh, and wait til you see the super-sexy hybrid-electric sportster version.  Read More
