COMPACT DESIGN
UNCOMPROMISED CONTROL 

The Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension keeps the wheels of the Outlander MAX moving straight up and down, eliminating scrub and camber change. Competitive suspension systems cause the wheels to move in a butterfly motion over bumpy terrain, reducing tire-to-ground contact. But the Outlander MAX remains predictable, giving you better all around control.

Not all traction systems are created equal. Can-Am Visco-Lok QE is a quick-engaging, automatic locking front differential system that allows you to easily transfer power from a slipping front wheel to the opposite wheel with traction. So you can overcome just about any obstacle you meet along the way, without thinking about it, unlike some competitor models.
