Xtreme UTV Tires
The Xtreme Trax radial from Pro Comp is designed specifically for high-performance side-by-sides and UTVs.

The six-ply radial construction also aids in the tire’s durability off-road.

Cooler Shocks
To help keep your shocks from boiling over, Fox has developed the ECS (external cooling system), which attaches to all new and existing bypass shocks. The ECS works by channeling the shock’s fluid through a billet aluminum and stainless steel heat sink. After excessive heat is allowed to escape, the cooled fluid continues back to the shock, completing the cycle. The faster the shock works, the more fluid is pumped through the cooling system.
