Can-Am has previously introduced track options for its line of ATVs with its Apache 360 track systems technology line. This year it’s introducing a track package for the Maverick Trail side-by-side UTV called the Apache Back Country track kit.
The company says the system is engineered to match engine output and “supports chassis performance while delivering maximum performance without compromising the vehicle or the track’s durability.”
The track system also includes a Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) module that ensures speedometer accuracy and makes steering easier.
BRP, the owner of the Can-Am brand, also owns Ski-Doo, and it says it has imported some of the track technology used on those snowmobiles for the Apache track system.
With a footprint of 14″ x 138″ (36 cm x 351 cm) on the rear tracks and 13.5″ x 96″ front track (34 cm x 244 cm) on the front, BRP claims this gives the Apache tracks the largest ground contact area in the segment. With that much surface area, ground pressure is just 0.44 pounds per square inch.
The track system is designed to be a seamless bolt on and will be available from dealers in September, just in time for next winter. Total MSRP for the tracks and mounting kit will be about US$6,000.
