Polaris ATV Gets Novel Non-Pneumatic Tires
19 November 2013 - Autoblog
For the ultimate doomsday prepper, let us officially introduce you to the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. Not only was this ATV inspired by the MV850 military vehicle, but it truly is an all-terrain vehicle with its trick non-pneumatic tires.
Starting at $14,999, you too can ride the same ATV as our military – right down to the single-speed transmission, steel exoskeleton and, of course, the TerrainArmor tires. According to Polaris, these tires can take a direct hit from a .50-caliber round and still travel 350 miles or drive 1,000 miles after running over a railroad spike.
The Sportsman WV850 H.O. was designed to be a rugged workhorse with specs that include a 1,500-pound towing capacity, a 3,500-pound winch and an 11.75-gallon fuel tank.
