BRP and its line-up of Can-Am Off-Road vehicles have been on a roll recently, leading the performance off-road world.
But never one to take success for granted on and off the track, Can-Am is about to push the boundaries even further with the introduction of Smart-Shox technology, available on the highly anticipated Can-Am Maverick X rs Turbo RR for 2021.
Smart-Shox technology is an industry-first, fully self-adjustable suspension technology for sup-erior performance, control and comfort. It is the only suspension in the industry that controls both compression and rebound for enhanced precision, delivering superior ride and handling, no matter the terrain or conditions. Even better? Shock adjustments are a thing of the past – now drivers can dominate at the touch of a button.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or a weekend warrior, this technology will make your rides better,” says Casey Currie, winner of the 2020 Dakar Rally in a Can-Am Maverick.
“Smart-Shox is one of those game-changing innovations that brings a smile to my face knowing I’ll have a competitive advantage over anything else out there. With Smart-Shox, the Maverick sticks to the ground in a way I’ve never experienced, and I can’t wait to get out and race.”
There are three major benefits to Smart-Shox semi-active suspension technology:
Enhanced Performance – The system constantly monitors wheel position and velocity for improved shock absorption and filtering, acting on both compression and rebound. It is the only system in the industry with rebound, and it also has the industry’s fastest valve reaction time – Smart-Shox can go all the way from full soft to full firm in an average of seventeen milliseconds (0.017s).
Better Control – Smart-Shox tech-nology makes real-time automatic suspension adjustments, improving vehicle stability and providing excellent control with flatter cornering. It reduces front and rear bouncing, while minimising vehicle body movement, adjusting automatically to any type of terrain after selecting a driving mode: Comfort, Sport, or Sport+.
More Comfort – Smart-Shox tech-nology is all about maximum performance and comfort, pro-viding both soft and hard damping advantages at the same time, per wheel, instantaneously. Even bottom-out and topping-out pro-
tection is factored into the automatic calibration.
Available in store this autumn, these elements are what make the 2021 Can-Am Maverick X rs Turbo RR the pinnacle of performance in the Can-Am Maverick line-up, which offers something for everyone. From two-seaters to four-seaters, the new high-end Maverick X rs with Smart-Shox is purpose-built for high performance.
