Watch the new Polaris RZR Pro R 4 take on our onX Offroad course!

That’s right, Alex and Kase wanted to take the vaunted Polaris RZR Pro R 4 to Tumbleweed Ranch and brave the onX Offroad course, which is technically closed for the winter! Bunch of nutjobs if you ask me. You see, we closed the off-road coarse as it is too treacherous for off-roading. Man. It’s just too slick and scary.

Alex and Kase have a hard time understanding the meaning of caution, and opted to take on the course. Part of that bravado has to do with the Polaris RZR Pro R 4, which has a 225 horsepower, turbocharged engine – feeding all four wheels. It also has one of the more advanced off-road suspensions in the industry, along with supper grippy Maxxis tires.

The boys loved the Ride Command, which gives the driver a variety of modes (and information) that allows the RZR to change personalities instantly. Most of us are still sticker shocked at the over $41,000 sticker on the base model. It’s easy to get near the $50,000 mark, if you over do it. FYI: The competition has products in the same price group.

There were a few issues that Alex brought up. Namely: length. The long wheelbase of the RZR makes it a pain to do tight maneuvers in. On top of that, the harness (while well made) prevents the body for leaning out. This means it’s hard to figure out your overall position. Off-road, in the snow, these issues can come back and bite you.

Fortunately, our boys know how to handle snow and off-roading situations. Still, there were a few moments that may have prematurely aged the duo. Check out this video and enjoy the ride!
