    Brother in law has a teryx and even with adjusted fox shocks, I still feel the wolverine has a nicer and more controlled ride. Best thing to do is get some seat time in as many machines as you can. As far as ride and comfort go, you'd be stepping up from the rhino in pretty much any newer machine.

    I assume everyone responding has the R spec with adjustable shocks. In a review of the teryx they mentioned that it really needed 2 inches more travel all the way around...which would put it at 10 inches like the wolverine...apparently those last 2 inches make the difference.

    I did a test ride in a non rspec wolverine and the ride was a bit better than the rhino, but nothing even remotely close to "plush".

    my son's teryx also comes with 14'' rims so might make it ride different than my 12'' rims.Name:  IMG_20170401_115634.jpg

    If your looking for super plush big travel suspension. Polaris or can am. If your coming from an atv to the wolverine. the wolverine is much smoother than any atv.

    I have owned a Pionner 1000-5, RZR 800 S and still own a RZR 900 S, RZR XP 1000 and Wolverine r spec. Comparing them all as stock machines the Wolverine is the plushest on the normal rocky terrain. Over big bumps the XP is the plushest. I had shock therapy tune the shocks on the 900 and XP 1000. On the 1000 I also added the Walker Evans sway bar links and with those modifications the XP 1000 is the plushest in all conditions. The Wolverine is about the same or maybe slightly plusher than the 900 with tuned shocks. I am not brand loyal. They are all great machines. I have 7,000 miles on the XP 1000 with no major issues. I have owned 9 Polaris machines, 6 Honda’s and 4 Yamaha’s. All great. The Honda’s and Yamaha’s have less issues but we have never had a major breakdown on any of the machines and we ride them hard.

    I am happy to answer any questions with no bias.

    You will get a little incremental plush by keeping 12" rims and larger tires and running less pressure. Of course 'plush' has potential for less control. Type of riding, trails vs desert vs driving gravel roads to the hunting cabin, all have a bearing. The 4 seater RZR may be an answer since it looks like its about 16' long lol?

    I’m 53 and have had 3 back surgeries.. that being said, you have two options, stop riding and accept the fact your condition is getting worse, or two.. do like me and accept the fact that it’s not going to get better and at least have fun riding even if your hurting.

    i rode a few times in a 900 razr and i have to admit the combination of ride position, seat shape, and big suspension numbers made for a very smooth machine. I think the rspec does a solid job of smoothing out the bumps but the slightly more uprt seating position and lower suspension travel numbers limit what it can do. I did notice an improvement in the ride of my rspec by adding 27in kenda bearclaw htr tires. I run 9psi and it seems to run pretty smooth but doesn't feel uncontrolled at all. Actually much more controlled than the stock fake bighorns that are bias ply tires.

    But on their website it says "6 Ply Rated" for the Big Horn 2.0. Gasp!! That's not the same as for real being 6 Ply? Gotta love those incredibly inventive marketing folks. From seat of the pants feeling, the stock tires on mild terrain contribute quite a bit to the plushness of the ride. I noticed it rode harder when I installed the EVO's.

    Abell34, I was running 9 psi in the Kendas but had some deflations on rocky trails probably from loss of inner bead integrity. I had to up the psi to 11. For other terrain 9 was great. My2cents worth.
