One of the most fun rides at BRP’s Ultimate Playground in Detroit (which continues this weekend, September 22nd through the 25th) was the Can-Am Outlander XT ATV. Myself and other press members took our ATV or side-by-side vehicle of our choice out on the course Can-Am had prepared. Buggying over dirt ramps and dirt-covered logs simulated the un-touched wooded trails these ATVs were made to confront.
The Outlander took each bump and twist smoothly, balancing itself out so that it wouldn’t tip over. This is definitely a ride meant for the extreme trail explorer.
