Tips For Safe UTV Riding This Winter

Tips For Safe UTV Riding This Winter
Temperatures drop, snow starts to fall, and the conditions for driving worsen. Despite the trickiness the winter season brings, you can still have fun riding your UTV — as long as you prepare properly.

At PlanetSXS, we are committed to providing you with the parts and accessories you need to off-road safely this winter. From wheels and tires to cab heaters and more, any modifications you make to your UTV will set you up for a safer, more enjoyable ride.

Keep reading for a few of our tips on how to ride your UTV safely this winter!
Know The Basics About Driving In The Winter
UTV riding in the winter requires you to be extra vigilant. Driving conditions can change in an instant, so being on the lookout for changes in weather, path directions, and potential obstacles is key. Yes, have fun and enjoy the ride, but don’t lose sight of the potential dangers.

Driving at a slower speed will also help you avoid dangerous conditions and reduce the risk of skidding out due to ice. Snow, slush, and ice are unpredictable and can cover paths and hide dangers on the path below. Approach turns with caution, avoid showing off with reckless tricks, and don’t be afraid to take it slow.

Knowing the basics about winter UTV driving won’t just keep your UTV safe but you and your riders, too.
Prepare Your UTV For Winter Off-Roading
Making the right modifications to your UTV can make all the difference in winter riding. Simply adding cab heaters or upper doors can turn a cold and blustery ride into a fun and comfortable one.

Shopping our collection of cab heaters is a great idea to keep your UTV cab warm. With designs that are well-suited for most makes and models, you can count on our cab heater to deliver reliable and long-lasting warmth. Their constructions are made to be out-of-sight and easy to install in any cab big or small. With a cab heater added to your UTV, you reduce the risk of temperature-related injuries and can truly enjoy the rides you take.

Enclosing your UTV is also a great choice not just for comfort but for safety while riding. Upper doors can be installed on your powersports vehicle to block out the cold, debris, and the elements of winter.

Aside from adding these enhancements to your UTV, double-check that all of the vehicle’s parts are intact, up to date, and as high-quality as possible. Winter riding requires a safe and durable UTV build, so giving it a thorough lookover is key.

Once your UTV is ready to go, get out there and enjoy the ride!
Make Sure You Have Emergency Equipment
Winter is an unpredictable season. Prepare yourself and your UTV for anything you may encounter with the proper emergency equipment!
Emergency Supplies For UTV Repairs
Make sure you have the tools you need to fix common problems that will arise with your UTV in the winter. With winter riding comes an increase in potential hazards. From something malfunctioning with your UTV to someone needing medical help, being prepared for any kind of emergency is crucial.

When off-roading you run the risk of tire problems, and with snow- and ice-covered paths, that risk only increases. Keeping a spare tire, repair kit, and a jack will set you up for repair success. You can purchase these repair kits premade with the supplies you need to fix your UTV, or, you can pick and choose which supplies you think you’ll need most. Either way, be sure that a flashlight, extra batteries, wrenches, and screwdrivers are staples in your emergency preparedness kit.

If you’re looking for an easy way to prepare for emergencies, shop our pre-packaged tool kits. These kits come complete with the tools you’ll need to repair your UTV’s mechanical issues and get back to riding.
Emergency Supplies For Injuries
Another important aspect in preparing for winter riding is making sure you have the supplies necessary to address injuries.

When off-roading, the most common injuries you’ll encounter are cuts, scrapes, and bruises. Basic first-aid supplies like bandaids, ice packs, and pain relief medications are going to help you deal with injuries until you return from your ride. Sometimes, you’ll need the supplies to deal with more serious injuries. For these instances, you might need bigger bandages, medical tape, hand sanitizer, and more.

It’s especially important that regardless of what supplies you keep for medical emergencies, you make having a charged phone or even a two-way radio a priority. In the event something serious happens to you, other riders, or your UTV, you will want to have a way to reach help.

Though we hope you’ll never need to use your emergency first-aid supplies, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Night Riding in Your RZR

Night Riding in Your RZR

Summer is over and fall is in full swing here on Planet RZR. A year is in the books for this website so we need to say thank you to all our friends. Today we officially launch this updated website and so far so good! We've added a simplified search to help you find products with ease. You now have the ability to narrow down items by color, size, weight, length, type, brand, fitment and more. 

As we continue to add new products, here are a few we wanted to highlight.

MSA's parent company wheel pros has taken there famous truck wheels 'KMC' and created a line specifically for Side By Sides. XD and Rockstars are on their way! 

With shorter days and longer nights, XK Glow is our possibly the coolest line of products we've seen in a long time. With Underbody accent lights you'll be able to see rocks and debris that would usually keep you from riding in the dark. XK LED whips are definitely the way to go too. XK products are controlled with a simple phone app that gives you control over an almost endless array of colors.  XK Accent lights can be programmed to dance to music and you can easily find the color you want by simply zooming in on a color with your phone's camera. 

We've added Arisun Tires, Riding Boots from Fly and Gaerne , Gloves from Fly and Mechanix, Fly Helmets, Jackets, Pants, Jerseys and casual apparel too. Please like our Facebook page for the latest sales, special product buys, new products and more info that'll keep in the know. 

Thanks Everyone!

Top 5 Sand Dune Destinations

Top 5 Sand Dune Destinations

Sand Dunes in a RZR is what deep snow is to a snowmobiler, double overhead waves are to a surfer and what Ibuprofen is to your brain the morning after your best friends wedding. It's epic and necessary. Ahhh, but dunes aren't available to everyone. Some of you have to travel a long way to get to the goods. Which got us thinking.... where are the best places to ride around here? (here being earth...more specifically...the good ole U S of A) 

Here is our top 5... comment on the Facebook Post if you agree or if we forgot any. 

#1   Imperial Sand Dunes-Glamis, California

40 miles long, 5 miles wide and 118,000 acres, dunes as tall as 300 ft....  It's no wonder they call this place the sand toy capitol. Just look at the photo... need we say more?

#2 St. Anthony Sand Dunes-St. Anthony, Idaho

Just down the road from the snowmobile capital of West Yellowstone, Montana lies the little town of St. Anthony, Idaho. Dunes 300 feet tall and 40,000 acres worth... if you're ever stuck on a family trip to see Old Faithful plan an extra day to ride. There's even a place to rent RZRs in St. Anthony. 

#3 Dumont Dunes-Baker, California

Located 30 miles north of Baker, Calif., the Dumont Sand Dunes serve as the gateway to Death Valley. If you make it to the Death Valley area you'll find 8,150 acres of open sand. Dumont sees a lot less traffic than Glamis so it may be worth the extra effort to get here. 

#4 Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area- 3 locations

The ODNRA is comprised of three separate dune locations – Florence, Winchester Bay and Coos Bay. With roughly 10,000 acres of sand open to ride, each area is unique and unlike the arid dunes of California. Both Florence and Coos Bay areas allow you to ride right onto the beach. If you make in in August, hit up the Oregon Dunefest in Winchester Bay. 

 #5 Coral Pink Sand Dunes–Kanab, Utah 

Named for its reddish colored sand, the Coral Pink Sand dunes are another popular west coast duning location in the RZR-friendly state of Utah. The Dunes are red and you'll feel like you're on Mars (which is almost as cool as PlanetRZR). The Sand Highway, located along the east side of the dunes, offers roller coaster-like, banked switchbacks. You'll find 2,000 acres of sand dunes open to RZRs with miles of trails in the surrounding areas... make sure to bring trail tires. 

Honorable Mention: Little Sahara-Waynoka, Oklahoma

Can't make it out west? OK has better than ok riding right in the Midwest. 

What do you think? Any other places in the midwest, east, south or west that should have made the top 5 list?

Hi!

You probably don't recognize this store... well that's ok. We've come along way from the outer reaches of space with the mission of creating the ultimate website for Polaris RZR fans. We tried the other sites and always found ourselves getting lost looking through products that were labeled for a RZR but had options for the other brands out there. So here we were....with the opportunity to build a site that was easier, cleaner and dedicated to the Polaris RZR.  Then we reached out to the manufacturers with our glowing fingers and packed this site full of goodies that you, the RZR fans actually want. And  because we can't touch items on the internet we've implemented the best, biggest and cleanest images we have. Even videos when we can get them. 

And I'm sure you noticed the prices...  ;) 


And while the site is new, we've added secure payment options to keep you safe. 
So, from our green planet to your blue earth we give you PlanetRZR.com.  Hope you like it because we do. Months of staying up all night, unhappy significant others and sore fingers from building this site looks to have paid off. Since this site is still new...you'll notice changes and new products added as fast as we can get them on the site. If we're missing something give us a call at (330) 223-1922

Thanks for checking us out, we're stoked you dropped by.
