You don’t have to hang up the towel when winter rolls around, because with some Can-Am Commander tracks installed on your side-by-side, you can continue riding come rain, sleet, or snow! Some UTV owners are in the market for a Can-Am Commander 1000 with tracks to use year-round, while others are more interested in procuring Can-Am Commander track kits that can be installed in the fall, then removed when the weather warms up. But regardless of whether you’re after an aftermarket belt option that can handle the snow tracks you just installed on your Can-Am Commander 800, or a set of Apache LT 360 tracks so that you can access your shed-hunting honeyhole before the snow melts, chances are extremely high that you’ll find exactly what you seek when shopping at Everything Can-Am Offroad!
Aside from the standard BRP snow tracks for the Can-Am Commander, track systems by companies like Camoplast, Camso, Tatou, and Kimpex are also sturdy and reliable options to choose. Some of the aforementioned Can-Am Commander track kits also come with a module that attaches to the vehicle’s ECU to both correct the speedometer as well as make adjustments to the electronic power steering unit. Keep in mind that you should generally put your rig in low gear when you have snow tracks installed, and if you can, you should also run the throttle like an on-off switch. In some instances, however, you might find yourself on tight trails needing to take off quickly without spinning the tracks and digging down deeper into the snow. And in such cases, putting the pedal to the metal could be your best solution. But regardless of the areas where you ride and no matter the Can-Am Commander tracks you decide to go with, you’ll likely have to make other changes to your machine so that it can handle the extra mass of your newly-installed Can-Am Commander snow tracks.
Things like gear reduction kits will help a ton by providing additional torque when aftermarket Can-Am Commander track systems are installed. And if you want to save on belts, using a Can-Am Maverick belt in your Can-Am Commander with tracks will ensure that it doesn’t burn up after every other ride. Clutching can also be an issue with Can-Am Commander snow tracks installed. Just like with heavy aftermarket tires, Can-Am Commander snow tracks weigh significantly more than the tires and rims that come stock on factory Can-Am Commanders. As such, you’ll likely want to pick up a clutch kit, install a new primary and secondary clutch, or throw on some different clutch springs and clutch weights. STM primary and secondary clutches are a good choice, but you can also put in a CVTech clutch for better performance with tracks installed. There are multiple spring / weight combinations you can run with a CVTech clutch, from nitrous-class race configurations to lite springs that will engage at a little over 1,200 rpm -- which is perfect for the technical stuff! The QSC Rev-X clutch is also great with tracks, and if you do the 100% lock-up mod with a soft-engagement clutch spring, you’ll be good to go on anything from hard pack to slush!
In addition to aftermarket clutching, you might also want to add a belt temp gauge to make sure that your belt doesn’t overheat. Furthermore, try to also keep your belt breather screen clean and ensure that you don’t over-tighten your tracks during the install process -- they should slip and pop occasionally, which is perfectly normal. Snorkeling your Can-Am Commander with tracks is also a smart thing to do. Some riders install the same Can-Am Commander snorkels that mud riders and puddle jumpers use, while others simply extend the CVT and air intakes so that they pull-in air from a higher position. You don’t have to ride easy with Can-Am Commander tracks installed, but you should still ride with brains. And this means making a few adjustments to your rig before heading out in the snow.
No matter if you’re looking for Can-Am Commander tracks for sale or needing assistance with your Can-Am Commander track kit install, we’ll lend a hand wherever it’s needed here at Everything Can-Am Offroad. Depending on the tracks you choose and the suspension system you’re running, the new height and width of your UTV after installing snow tracks may vary. So make sure to take the new dimensions of your tracked-out Commander into consideration -- especially if you have a low-ceiling garage or use an enclosed toy hauler!

The upsides to adding tracks to your Side by Side are ridiculously amazing! Experience what true traction is with a set of tracks for your Can-Am Commander. Conquer courses that you would have hesitated to try out with even the most rugged of tires.
When it comes to Can-am Commander tracks, there are two big names in the game: Apache and Camoplast (Camso). We’ve witnessed the Apache 360 tracks in action firsthand and can honestly say they are extreme to the core. If you groom trails, plow snow, or do any deep snow riding, UTV tracks are where it’s at. Many UTV riders like Camso tracks because they can go on any UTV with the included mount kit. But if you’re sticking with BRP for life, than you may not need this functionality. A friend of the site came to us with his commander 800 XT needing help to install tracks off of his brother’s XTP 1000. We hooked him up with a module for the tracks and some plug adapters and he was off to the races in no time. Some riders also find that their belt overheats with tracks on their Can-am Commander. But installing a temp sensor in the belt case and monitoring the heat can help avoid this. No matter how deep you’re looking to go, through snow drifts or simply dust on crust, we’ve got all the best tracks for the Can-am Commander right here at Everything Can-Am Offroad.
One word. Traction. You will find no comparison when it comes to giving your machine traction as it has never had before. Whether you are using these tracks in winter, mud, marshes or to climb hillsides, you will be blown away by the traction that they give to your UTV. Some people only use their track for winter and then swap them for their tires but this is not mandatory. Another great thing about these tracks that you are considering adding to your Can-Am Commander is that they automatically knock debris out as your ride along, making them self-cleaning and ensuring that you do not have to do battle with broken branches twigs and other debris that it picks up as you make your way along the trail. The tracks are super strong and are virtually indestructible making them a serious asset to your machine. If all of that hasn’t sold you then the fact that the tracks you find here are made by brands that are rated as some of the best in the UTV aftermarket industry should further reassure you of your pending choice. Enjoy a new kind of ride in your Can-Am Commander or Can-Am Commander MAX.
