MIGHT AS WELL JUMP
I've been out at our top secret track all morning taking photos of the Polaris ACE 900 XC with Dirt Trax Television Co-Host Luke Lester for the upcoming issue of Dirt Trax Magazine and have witnessed some impressive feats and as always heard some great commentary on what he's riding...
Luke's comments included:
"This thing might jump the best of any vehicle."
"The suspension is fantastic."
"Wow, in 4 wheel-drive I can clear the tabletop!"
"I'd love to do a Baja 1000 custom build, but it seriously doesn't need much more than what’s there."
No joke. The XC's 875cc Prostar Twin churns out an impressive 78 horsepower, which at the press of the accelerator creates serious roost in soft dirt and is enough to get the front wheels off the ground on hard pack!
It's that race inspired long travel suspension that is like magic on big jumps. Just about anything can get airborne, but it's the landing that’s the tricky part.
Long travel front and rear suspension featuring Walker Evans premium multi-position adjustable needle shocks soak up impacts like jumping into your own cushy bed after a long day at work. Luke had the ACE 900 XC set to eight clicks from full soft and he was really happy with how it responded.
The ACE 900 XC also features Polaris' True On-Demand All-Wheel-Drive, which instantly engages all four tires the moment you need more traction and reverts back to two-wheel drive once the vehicle returns to solid ground. Coupled with EPS (you know how much we love EPS), handling stays true and in control delivering exceptional ride quality and handling.
Stay tuned for Luke's full evaluation of the ACE 900 XC coming up on Dirt Trax Television .
