As much as we enjoy climbing up a rocky trail or slogging through a muddy pond on a utility ATV, we’ll always be sport riders at heart. The challenge of shifting up through the gears, pitching your machine around a corner, or sailing off a jump is more intense on a sport machine, and we really like how a great sport machine can challenge your skills as much as the trail. Nothing else can match the power to weight ratio and acceleration, especially if you’re on a healthy 450cc machine, or better yet, Yamaha’s Raptor 700.

To bring home big bucks, truckloads of hunters spend big bucks on the latest bow, custom rifle, and NASA grade optics, but despite how technology has changed hunting in the last decade, no other tool we can think of has transformed the sport more than an ATV or UTV.  If there were ever vehicles made for the needs of hunters, these are it.  Thanks to their ability to cross difficult terrain, it’s also possible to get much farther away from camp.

Change is the one constant in life. It’s also difficult, because when there is a change – whether in technology or how we do things – there are often unforeseen consequences. One change that affects everyone in power sports is the widespread use of ethanol in gasoline. How you prepare for the effects of high ethanol content gasoline in your engine can leave, or remove, a lot of change from your pocket.

Most riders are also do-it-yourselfers. We would rather take on a job ourselves, whether it’s rebuilding an engine or building a backyard shed, than turn it over to somebody else. One task that can be completely deceiving, though, is changing tires. As anyone who has ever attempted to change ATV or Side x Side tires knows, there is hardly a job that appears simpler, yet has the ability to be so completely frustrating.

The Arctic Cat product development team is on a roll! A few years back, they introduced the incredible Wildcat 1000 Side x Side, followed by a four-seat version, and last year they rolled out our favorite trail loving Side x Side, the Wildcat Trail. We wondered how they would top that for 2015, but as it turns out, they were just getting warmed up!
