At the turn of the last Century, Canadian inventor Joseph-Armand Bombardier had applied his mechanical skills and inventive nature to create the 1937 B7 snowmobile, patented as the world‘s first tracked vehicle for the snow.
By 2003, BRP Can-Am became a standalone company devoted to delivering the world's best off-road vehicles. Advancements in engineering, a proven record of racing success from dominating the motocross series in the 70's to three-in-a row 2018–2020 class wins at the world's toughest race; the Dakar Rally. Can-Am proves that as far as we’ve come, there’s never a limit to how far we'll go next.
