And comfort is just one such thing. Now, as if your Can-Am Spyder RT wasn’t comfortable enough already, the creative minds at BRP have been burning the midnight oil dreaming up and designing accessories to kick it up a notch. “Impossible!” you say? As hard as it is to believe, they have succeeded. Let’s take a closer look at some of their creative gems, designed from the ground-up for the sole purpose of making your life better, and yes, more comfortable.
Without a doubt, that « wind in the face » feeling is one of the most prized and enticing aspects of riding a Can-Am Spyder. After all, few things in life personify freedom, or are more relaxing, than a soothing stream of air caressing your body. That is, of course, so long as Mother Nature is feeling cooperative, which is not always the case. Fear not, however, for the slick and easy-to-use Adjustable Vented Windshield allows you to get the last word on Mother Nature by effortlessly regulating frontal airflow. A clever integrated adjustable vent offers easy infinite management of horizontal slots from closed to fully open, letting you adjust the precise amount of air you want, helping to make your ride as good as it can be. Don’t you love happy endings?
The call of the open road is a difficult one to ignore, as owners of Can-Am Spyder RTs know all too well. Of course, answering that call is even easier if you have the good fortune of having your Can-Am Spyder RT equipped with the Tri Axis Adjustable Handlebar, a state-of-the-art adjustable handlebar that reduces fatigue and improves comfort thanks to virtually unlimited adjustment possibilities. An innovative Allen key adjustment system makes it easy to use, while linked left and right bars, which rotate simultaneously, make it impossible to disrupt the alignment. Quick and easy adjustments to height, width and rake make it possible to change positions during a ride, or easily accommodate another rider in seconds. Versatile and user-friendly, it re-uses all your stock components (handgrips, comodo and clutch cable).
Working in harmony with the Spyder RT’s innovative three-cylinder ACE engine, the Akrapovič Sport-Touring 3C Silencer provides a sound that could be defined as a soothing mechanical symphony. Lightweight and built to norms that ensure it meets the most stringent standards available (including EPA, CARB and CE), its sound is unmistakable. World-class craftsmanship and design combined with premium materials including titanium shell and carbon fibre end cap result in an exhaust system built to such a high standard that it can only bear one name, Akrapovič.
Your buttocks get a bum rap. After all, long days in the saddle have it getting slowly weighed down by bodyweight. And it gets worse if it’s cold! Rejoice comfort aficionados, for the fine folks at BRP have just what you need: the Heated Comfort Seat. The dual range hi/low heat setting is cleverly activated via driver and passenger heated grip controls, making it possible to individualise your warmth levels to those most personal and sensitive areas. Oh yeah, and it also allows use of the new driver backrest too. Life is good.
Pity your lower back. While your nether region is getting the royal treatment from your Comfort Seat, it sits alone, neglected. Quite sad, don’t you agree? Ah, but there is hope, thanks to the easily installed Driver Backrest. Disciples of function will appreciate the fact that it can be easily folded to allow easy passenger access, while proponents of form will be tickled that it’s colour matched. Comfort, good looks, and best of all, a happy lower back. To ensure it stays that way, your Driver Backrest for Comfort Seat can be safely locked in place, ensuring it remains all yours too.
Chrome deficiency got you down? If you have an affinity for shiny polished goodness, you’re in luck, for the good folks at BRP are offering up a plethora of glittering accessories just waiting to be buffed to a mirror finish. Chrome wheels? You betcha! Handlebar cover? Oh yes! Windshield support? Indeed! And so much more!!!

The 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs fast approaches. Can-Am Spyder is delighted to launch an exciting promotion that integrates the National Hockey League (NHL®) and Six-Time Stanley Cup® Champion Mark Messier. An entertaining viral video is part of this promotion. See how Mark guarantees that you will love the new Can-Am Spyder for its exhilarating ride…
You hear the one about the Moose who had a thing for a Spyder?
A Can-Am Spyder, that is. Yes, Mark Messier, quintessential NHL champion, affectionately known as the “Moose”, has developed a sweet spot for the fabled
Can-Am Spyder Can you blame him?
How appropriate that with the 2014 National Hockey League Playoffs just around the corner, our man Mark should fess up about his newest love interest. Ah spring… the season of love.
Having claimed 6 Stanley Cup rings over the course of his long and illustrious NHL career, it takes something out of the ordinary to get this Moose’s attention, and even more so his affection. Hockey fans may recall that it was exactly 20 years ago, as then-captain of the New York Rangers, with his team behind 3 games to 2 against cross-town rivals New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup semi-finals, that Messier stuck his neck on the line by “guaranteeing” a win in the crucial sixth game. Lo and behold, Messier and the Rangers came through, eventually working their way to becoming 1994 Stanley Cup champions.
Since then, perhaps by sheer coincidence, Messier claims to have developed a knack for making predictions. Have a look at this humorous short video where The Man himself gives a personal account of this new-found gift.
By the way, Messier predicts that you will love the Spyder too. And you really don’t want to argue with a, that is, THE Moose, do you?
