Braking and Durable Tires The four-wheel disc brak- ing system on the Maverick 1000R consists of front 214 mm hydraulic disc brakes, with twin-piston caliper and 214 mm rear hydraulic disc, with a single-piston caliper. These brakes work exceptionally well, and the built-in engine braking is particularly effective on steep downgrades. In low gear, with the engine brake engaged, the Maverick can crawl down a steep grade, in full control. Another nice feature on the new Mavericks are its tire choices. They come equipped with 27-Inch MaxxIs BIgHorn 2.0, which use a non-direc- tional, six-ply radial design. These are extremely durable tires with a thick carcass that resists flats.

These tires provide a smooth and predictable ride over multiple surface types. Good feature. Visco Lok 4-Wheel Drive System Exclusive to Can-Am, the Visco-Lok drive system is a progressively automatic lock- ing front differential system. Once you engage the 4x4 locking mode the system intel- ligently transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the op- posing wheel with traction. We like this particular sys- tem on 4-wheel drive ATVs, and side by sides. That is be- cause the Visco-Lok has no buttons to push or levers to pull. in. Also, it is extremely easy to steer. Visco-Lok also gives progressive lock-up with no rev or speed limiter in- volved. Room With A View There is also ample space inside the wide cockpits of the Maverick sport UTVs.
