polaris’s ‘terrainarmor’ tire technology is the first of its kind in the commercial all-terrain vehicle market. the minessota-based manufacturer says that these tires enhance the ‘WV850’s’ center-of-gravity and cornering. the 77-horsepower off-roader also comes with a single-speed transmission, a high-strength steel exoskeleton, steel racks, plus a huge towing capacity (1,500 lb (680.4 kg)). the vehicle’s non-pneumatic tires are designed to cope with combat-level stress; they can withstand .50 caliber gunshots, even AK47 bullet damage, and roll away from ballistic scenes like nothing happened.
