Features

Features

  • A CLASS OF ATV: Nothing stands between you and adventure with the world’s most capable ATV. The all-new Sportsman XP® 1000 S shatters expectations — redefining the ATV experience through a ground-breaking 55 in. wide platform with 14.5 in. of ground clearance that delivers new levels of stability, performance and terrain conquering mastery unlike any other ATV in history.
  • RIDE THE UNIMAGINABLE: Explore beyond the expected to choose paths unknown. Transform ugly terrain into a walk in the park with a long-travel suspension that destroys tradition with an incredible 12.5 in. of front travel and 14 in. of rear travel, all controlled by fully-adjustable Walker Evans® premium shocks. With all-new ProSteer steering design and 27 in. Duro tires, you have to ride it to believe it.
  • ANY JOB, ANY ADVENTURE: Beneath the muscular cut of the outer fascia resides an all new chassis that is 31% beefier. This all-new platform features an astounding 500 lb. of rack capacity, with 1,750 lb. towing capacity. No matter the adventure before you, pack it on and haul it out with confidence.
  • NOT REINFORCED … REDESIGNED: If you want to completely reinvent the ATV, you need to start at the foundation, which is exactly what we did. The entire chassis of the Sportsman XP® was developed to work in harmony with the bold performance attributes it delivers. We then complimented this rugged design with resilient components giving you the confidence to push further, work harder, and tackle the worst Mother Nature has to offer and never back down.
  • ALL PLATFORM: Looks can be deceiving, but rest assured beneath those muscular lines Polaris engineers developed an entirely new chassis – one that’s bigger, bolder, and stronger than ever before. With 31% larger main-frame tubing, it was designed to be abused, stomped on, and beaten through the worst terrain and never give in.
  • RANGER XP FRONT DIFFERENTIAL: To develop the next generation of the world’s toughest ATVs we looked to the world’s most capable side-by-side and utilized the front differential and half-shafts from the RANGER XP® 1000. Delivering 15% increase in component strength and Active Decent Control, the system delivers rugged dependability with unquestioned confidence.
  • STRONGER TRANSMISSION: Some ATVs look tough, be we knew the new Sportsman XP® 1000 S had to deliver which is why we completely redesigned the transmission with 25% stronger components to work in harmony with the increase in travel, ground clearance and larger tires.
  • THE WORLD IS WAITING, CONQUER IT: The all-new Sportsman XP® is designed to succeed where others dare not tread. Armed with an arsenal of never-before-seen factory equipped performance attributes, it redefines capability in every way, resulting in a level confidence never before experienced with an ATV.
  • INDUSTRY'S FIRST 55-INCH STANCE: If you want to shatter the status quo you need do the unthinkable. Introducing the world’s first 55 in. wide-stance ATV. Delivering a level of stability and performance never before thought possible in an ATV. Crawl your way through jagged rocks, navigate deep rutted trails, and straighten a twisted wooded path with uncanny accuracy.
  • AGGRESSIVE 27" TIRES: The impressive wide-stance of the all-new Sportsman XP® 1000 S is enhanced with 27” Duro Powergrip tires. Rugged construction resists punctures and a unique tread pattern is engineered for maximum grip in varied terrain.
  • TOWERING 14.5" CLEARANCE: The world knows no limits when it comes to terrain, which is why we rose above the expected and developed an ATV delivering a terrain shattering 14.5” of ground clearance. Combined with the wide, stable stance and long-travel suspension, little can stand in the way between you and destinations unknown.
  • MORE TRAVEL WITH MORE CONTROL: Experience a new level of ride and handling beyond expectations. The all-new Sportsman XP® 1000 S delivers a series of industry-first designs including a new long-travel suspension system that crushes terrain with uncanny smoothness, precise control, and confidence unmatched.
  • 14" OF LONG TRAVEL: The science of suspension travel can be complicated — the new breed of ATV destroys traditional thinking with a new long-travel design that delivers everything good and eliminates the bad. The all-new Sportsman XP® 1000 S virtually eliminates the evil effects of wheel scrub, the unwanted trait of the wheels moving outward while traveling through the 12.5"/14" (F/R) of suspension travel. The result is a level of control never before experienced on an ATV.
  • WALKER EVANS® 2" SHOCKS: Anyone can talk about big suspension travel numbers, but all that movement is worthless without control. The new Sportsman XP® 1000 S is outfitted with Walker Evans® 2" shocks, complete with compression adjustment and dual coil springs for unrivaled ride and handling.
  • BUMPSTEER ELIMINATION: The Polaris exclusive ProSteer design features a dual pitman arm and draglink setup. This system virtually eliminates bumpsteer during suspension events, and minimizes the feedback to the handlebars.
  • ENGINEERED TO DELIVER: We set out to completely redesign the ATV, we wanted to do more than simply exceed expectations, we wanted to shatter them. With nearly unheard of towing, hauling and storage capabilities others can’t match, your only limit is your imagination.
  • UNRIVALED RACK CAPACITY: No matter where your outdoor spirit leads you, our new high-capacity racks can bring along whatever life’s adventures may need. With a front capacity of 200 lb. and a rear rack capacity of 300 lb., the combined 500 lb. cargo shatters the industry standard.
  • MOVE MOUNTAINS: No matter how you measure hard work, the new Sportsman XP® 1000 S measures up beyond the expected. With the ability to tow up to 1,750 lb it can move mountains of work, so you don’t have to.
  • CAPACITY & CONVENIENCE: If you want something done right, you need to have the right tools for the job. The new Sportsman XP® 1000 S comes equipped with a standard 2 in. receive hitch so you can tow big loads with confidence.
