8 Must-Have Accessories for Your Can-Am SxS Vehicles
Story by: Can-Am
Can-Am has added dozens of new parts to its ATV and side-by-side accessories lineup since its August dealer show in Florida that took the cover off the game-changing Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle. This list of Can-Am specific parts, accessories and clothing has expanded again with the unveiling of more new products, including items from S&B Filters, Rugged Radios and Kolpin. Here’s a look at several key components to enhance your Can-Am.
Can-Am Maverick X3
S&B Filters Engine Pre-Filter Particle Separator
For more than 30 years, S&B Filters manufactures in U.S. cold air intakes, filters and other performance parts, specializing in diesel/gas trucks and SUVs. Through its intensive R&D efforts, S&B has designed intake systems that greatly reduce airflow restriction, while also protecting the vehicle’s engine. Thanks to this new agreement between Can-Am and S&B Filters, Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle owners can now have the same proven pre-filter technology used by military helicopters to maintain power in extremely dusty conditions.
The S&B Filters Engine Pre-filter Particle Separator (715004297) can remove up to 94% of dust before it reaches the stock air filter. This advanced filtration process produces a cleaner air filter allowing owners to take numerous and continuous rides in dusty conditions. The Particle Separator blocks dirt from penetrating and clogging airflow. This accessory also saves time and money as owners can focus more on booking additional rides and less time for inspection, cleaning and replacing filters. The kit is designed to mount to either lower or upper ROPS bars and can work with installed roofs.
Rugged Radios Car-To-Car System
Ideal for group rides, the Rugged Radios Car-To-Car System (715003440)offers a 2-to-4-mile range and the convenient push-to-talk design mounted directly on the steering wheel. The kit includes a radio mounting bracket, base station charger, helmet speaker / mic kit, push-to-talk buttons and two RH-5R Rugged Radios 5-Watt Dual band Handheld Radios. In addition, the kit can be synced to a 2-person Intercom System (715003440).
Formed Aluminum Roof
The 0.09-inch (2.3 mm) thick, formed aluminum roof (715004224) is designed to be durable, lightweight and add a sporty look to the Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R side-by-side vehicle. The roof, which supplies protection from the sun, rain and raining debris, is compatible with a windshield and offers easy, no-tools installation. It comes in black.
Tinted Half Windshield
The high-impact-resistant durable polycarbonate tinted half windshield (715004291) from Can-Am enhances the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle’s impressive looks. The formed polycarbonate construction supplies enhanced rigidity, while the design protects the driver and passenger from the elements. The UV-resistant windshield, complete with a reverse-angle lip to deflect airflow, won’t yellow, craze or crack. It mounts in seconds and requires no tools.
HMWPE Front Skid Plates
Designed for the Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs vehicle, the high-grade front plastic skid plates (715003552) glide smoothly and silently over obstacles, offering great protection in rough terrain. The HMWPE (abrasion-resistant thermoformed High Molecular Weight Polyethylene plastic) is lighter than aluminum, yet is made to resist cracking in cold and absorb high-impact hits. The kit, branded Can-Am, includes front A-arm and trailing arm protectors.
Stronghold Gear Rail by Kolpin
Now all Defender utility-recreation side-by-side vehicle owners can have the Stronghold Gear Rail system (715004089) found as standard equipment on the Defender Mossy Oak Hunting Edition. The Gear Rail holds up to two Kolpin Stronghold gun boots with the Stronghold Auto-Latch Mount by Kolpin. A Headache Rack (715002423) or Gear Rail Adaptor (715003392) is required.
Stronghold Auto-Latch Mount by Kolpin
The Stronghold Auto-Latch Mount (715003899) fits with the Stronghold Gear Rail (715004089) and Stronghold Gun Boot (705011442) for the Defender side-by-side vehicle. The auto-latching design provides quick and secure gun boot attachment to the vehicle. Made from rugged, high-impact, reinforced nylon and coated steel, the bracket is designed to last.
Stronghold Gun Boot Impact by Kolpin
Can-Am Defender side-by-side vehicle owners can trust their main hunting partner (their firearm) is resting safely and comfortably in this compact, low-profile Stronghold Gun Boot Impact by Kolpin (705011442). The boot can hold up a 52-inch long rifle and shotguns with optics. This device also includes a removable, shock absorbing foam Impact™ liner to provide additional protection.
