Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. ATV – A Personal Tank?

Sportman ATV TerrainArmor tires

There are ATV’s and then there is the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. which is undoubtedly the king of the hill mountain. The most interesting feature on this ATV is obviously the TerrainArmor non-pneumatic tires making them virtually indestructible. First developed for the US military, TerrainArmor tires give mobility like no other and allow users to face treacherous terrain, obstacles, and even bullets. These specialty tires are built to sustain combat level damage without compromising functionality or mobility and they mean it. These tires can take one hell of a beating and eliminate flats, cuts, rips, and tears. I’m not certain how many ATV riders carry on-vehicle spare tires but this would definitely eliminate that.

The Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. also features a durable steel exoskeleton allowing it to carry 600 pounds of payload on the racks alone. On top of that, the two-inch receiver allows this vehicle to tow up to 1500 pounds making it a work horse for any job site or hauling your trophy from your hunting trip. The ATV also has a larger fuel tank allowing for 11.5 gallons of fuel which is nearly twice as much as its nearest competitor.

And after you conquer that hill, you have to come back down. This is where the Active Descent Control comes into play makes sure you make it back down safely.

    Makes me wish I had a need for an ATV, or that I could get those tires for my Jeep…or that zombies would take over and I could just have it because it’s badass.
