What to Look Out for When Buying Can-Am Maverick R Radius Arms?
Types of Maverick R Radius Arms
Can-Am Maverick R high-clearance radius arms are ideal for those who frequently go over rocky or uneven terrain where departure and approach angles make the difference between damage and no damage. If you want to maintain the highest levels of durability, boxed radius arms are built for strength and durability, perfect for heavy-duty off-roading. They offer maximum toughness but can add weight to the vehicle and make your UTV less agile. Lastly, tubular radius arms emphasize performance and agility, but these aren’t usually as durable.
Bolt-on radius arms are great for ease of installation and future adjustments since they are suitable for those who might want to tweak their setup or replace arms down the line major overhauls are needed as these are simply plug-in and-play.
On the other end of the spectrum, we have Can-Am Maverick R weld-on arms which provide a more permanent solution with increased stability. Even though they are ideal for riders committed to a long-term configuration, they require professional installation.
Build Materials and Durability
Steel arms are known for their toughness and ability to withstand severe off-roading conditions. Ideal for rugged use but can add weight and can also corrode if not properly treated/coated. Aluminum Can-Am Maverick R radius arms are a lighter alternative with good strength and corrosion resistance. They strike a balance between durability and weight. Chromoyl arms combine the durability of steel with lighter weight, making them a versatile choice for various off-road conditions. Last, but certainly not costing least, titanium radius arms tend to offer the best weight-to-strength ratio, but at a much higher cost.
