    Wolverine "plushness" vs other make models.

    It has been about a year since I was able to rent a Wolverine Rspec and my low back issues have been growing steadily worse. I thought I would ask those of you that have one how you would compare/rate the plushness of ride quality vs other makes/models of SxSs or ATVs. I am starting to wonder if there is anything out there that my back can tolerate or if this is the end of the sport for me. I have been riding my rhino with resi shocks down gravel and dirt roads for a bit the last few days (less than an hour each day) and the stiffness/jarring is too much. A year ago I thought the wolverine resi shocks and added wheelbase would solve it, but now I am not so sure. Of course the super hard Rhino seats probably don't help.

    Thanks for any thoughts or information.

    I have osteoarthritis In my neck and shoulder and know how you feel,other members have changed out their seats on the wolverine,but havn't heard reviews on them,sitting and bouncing around on these machines can take a toll on the body.i like to take a hike whenever I go out and seems to help.

    my son just bought a 2016 tyrex le 800 today,it comes with the adjustable fox shocks,adjustable drivers seat,tilt steering,led lights and three year warranty.the bucket seats are very plush and the machine has a six inch longer wheel base than the wolverine so should ride as good or better,will go for a cruise with him when he's done work to see how it rides.also 27'' tires

    Everything about that teryx looks perfect...except the suspension (why can't any manufacture get everything right in 1 model?) Only 8 inches of travel and the reviews I read said it is pretty rough in the slow stuff and trails. They said it actually rides best at 25 mph. They say if it only had 2 more inches of travel like the wolverine...would be good to go. Will be interesting to see what you think.

    Thanks for mentioning this unit. I have never even looked at one but the 2016 is impressive...loaded with so many things, good wheelbase, wide as possible but still compliant with our 62 inch wide trails, tilt, ps, tall doors, plush seats, long warranty, tons of storage, good ground clearance, roomy cabin, eps...wow.

    got to take his tyrex for a quick ride today and was rougher than the wolverine so he adjusted the shocks and was better.the seats are comfy and you sit up nicer than the wolverine with better visability.the axles look to be twice the size of the wolverine and the rear a arms are more open and don't get clogged with mud and snow.he did have a harder time getting through the tight turns than mine ,time will tell how it stands up.

    he kept turning it down and said it did get better,he is going to try at softest ride the next time he takes it out, also there is only the two control settings on his fox shocks compared to the three control settings of the kyb shocks on mine,i didn't get a chance to drive it on much uneven ground to see how the rebound reacted ,we were pressed for time.i also took my machine on our excursion so only got to try his ounce.

    Softening the shocks and removing the sway bar made a considerable difference in the daughter/son-in-laws T4, but, the Wolverines ride is still noticeably better.

    Wolvy is pretty comfy!! I have lower back issues and it never bothers me at all when I ride! I did soften the shocks about 4 clicks all the way around.
