Polaris has announced the launch of its new military-grade all-terrain vehicle featuring Terrain Armor Non-Pneumatic Tires (NPT). The new Sportsman WV850 H.O. with Terrain Armor will be available beginning in December 2013 in very limited quantities. Earlier this year, Polaris Defense started offering NPT tires as an option for its military vehicles. Beyond having no flats, Terrain Armor tires offer a better center-of-gravity, improved cornering, and the capability for a diverse range of applications.
Polaris has tested NPTs under several extreme situations, including logging more than 350 miles/563 kilometers after receiving fire from a 50-cal round, and driving 1,000 miles/1609 kilometers with a 3 in/7.6 cm railroad spike in the tread and webbing.
