When the Hoonigan crew takes a Maverick to the wide open spaces of Utah, you know there is going to be some epic video.
Ken Block is not exactly known for subtlety. With a lead foot and the skill to wheel anything with an engine to the very edge of sanity, it’s only natural that the man finds himself in side-by-side rigs every now and then. This time, he’s partnered with Can-Am to profile some of his favorite places to ride in America.
Episode #2 of *takes breath* Ken Block’s Guide to Awesome Can-Am Riding Spots *exhales* finds the crew in Sand Hollow, Utah. Those in the know will recognize this place as a three hour jaunt from Vegas that offers some of the best wheeling in the American southwest. In the words of the man himself: “it’s one of the absolute best places to go ride these things”.
Check out the action! If you’re interested in some high-speed sand shredding, skip to 13:50.
The Can-Am Maverick X3 X RS Turbo RR (whose name is nearly as long as Block’s video) is a 192 horsepower beast equipped with Fox 3.0 Podium RC2 suspension and a Smart-Lok diff with Trail Activ mode. All that is a fancy way of saying this thing will shred just about any terrain in which it comes into contact. Ken’s rig is a two-seater but a four-place version is available if you want to scare the bejesus out of three friends.
Those are 30-inch Maxxis meats on 14-inch wheels, by the way, along with standard four-point harnesses and a snazzy 7.6-inch digital display inside. Prices start at $27,999 but expect to be into it for at least thirty grand by the time you add a few accessories. A snorkel kit alone is seven hundred bucks.
