New Sportsman 570 Öhlins Announced
In collaboration with Öhlins, Polaris has announced the new Sportsman 570 EPS SP Öhlins Special Edition. Featuring performance-driven Öhlins innovation, enhanced riding capabilities and premium finishes, the new special edition Sportsman 570 EPS SP sets the bar even higher with an unprecedented off-road experience.
Delivering the next generation of advanced suspension technology with premium Öhlins shock absorbers, the new special edition Polaris Sportsman allows riders to stay focused on the trails ahead and be confident to push their limits. Designed in close collaboration with Öhlins, the model benefits from an upgraded ride with more traction and control, better overall vehicle balance with improved stability and manoeuvrability, as well as maximum grip in all conditions, especially when cornering.
The inclusion of Öhlins suspension technology enhances ride quality with optimised damping characteristics and a monotube shock design, providing better response and durability. The spring stiffness has been increased by 20% on the front, and 35% on the rear, reducing body pitch and roll gradient while improving cornering performance and high-speed stability. The Öhlins dampers also allow for quick and simple spring preload adjustment with nine different setup possibilities to suit any riding condition.
In addition to the Öhlins dampers, the Sportsman 570 EPS SP Öhlins Special Edition features eye-catching yellow springs on the front and rear, a premium Turbo Silver paint finish, as well as black aluminium rims, black handguards for added hand protection and style, and a front brushguard for an extreme, rugged look.
“We are on a mission to deliver what our customers really want – new and unique products that improve the rider experience,” said Rodrigo Lourenco, Vice President of Polaris Off-Road Vehicles EMEA. “The new Öhlins special edition is the result of continuous innovation and an exciting new partnership for Polaris. A brand driven by performance, Öhlins is a leader in suspension technology and we’re thrilled to collaborating with them to bring to the market the only ATV in the industry to include Öhlins premium shocks as standard.”
Öhlins Motorcycle General Manager, Robert Brinkmark, said: “We’ve been developing high-end suspension technology for over 40 years, but we haven’t been active in the ATV segment for several years. Partnering with Polaris on this project with its bestselling Sportsman 570 has been a magnificent opportunity for both brands to combine expertise. The new model is the perfect choice for riders who want to tackle off-road adventures with unrivalled performance enhancements.”
