Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), once the powersports subsidiary of Canada’s Bombardier, Inc., was founded in 1942 in Valcourt, Quebec by the man whom many call the “Father of the Snowmobile”, Joseph-Armand Bombardier. Two decades prior to the foundation of BRP, Joseph-Armand Bombardier had experimented with a propeller-driven snow vehicle that was heavily influenced by the Russian aerosanis. After Bombardier had established themselves with their popular series of snowmobiles, the company ventured into the world of off-road racing in the 1970s with their Can-Am brand of motocross racing motorcycles. Despite the on-track success of the Can-Am racing motorcycles, the brand was shut down in 1987. Ten years later, BRP used their knowledge and experiences from off-road racing to develop their first ATV prototype called the Traxter. The Traxter was a revolutionary machine for Bombardier Recreational Products and it helped the company earn ATV Of the Year honors in 1998. BRP rode on the success of the Traxter for a few more years until the debut of their first sport ATV, the DS650, in 2001. Soon, the Traxter and the DS 650 were joined by the DS 50, DS 650 Baja, DS 90, Quest 500 4X4, and the Quest 650 and Quest 650 XT. In 2006, the model that is, perhaps, the most important to BRP’s history was created: the Outlander 800. The Outlander 800 took home numerous accolades and prestigious off-road racing victories for Bombardier, including the death-defying Dakar Rally and the GNCC Racing Series Championship in October 2006. In recognition of the Outlander 800’s racing victories, BRP’s ATV division renamed themselves as Can-Am and Can-Am ATVs sit among world’s top 10 leading manufacturers and most popular brands with riders and off-road motorsport enthusiasts.
Cars with front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive with IRS (independent rear suspension) setups, or all-wheel drive and trucks and SUVs with similar driveline and suspension configurations use CV joints (constant-velocity joints) to transmit power to the wheels. ATVs also use CV joints but unlike regular cars and trucks, ATVs can be more susceptible to CV boot damage depending on how they are used and where they are ridden. If a CV boot is split, cut, punctured, ripped or rotten, the CV joint itself will wear out at an increased rate. Always inspect your ATV CV boots as part of every maintenance service and after every off-road ride. Race Driven CV boots are made to meet or exceed OEM and other aftermarket specifications and use high-quality rubber for extended life.
