Not a lie
Hardly any other profession has recently been scolded as much as that of the media. Fake news, lying press – the right and left fringes of society are trying to exploit the currently difficult times for their own purposes and to interpret any information in the direction they want. It’s very simple. Especially when you perceive your own position as the only right one. Fortunately, as a specialist magazine, we can keep enough distance from this, dear readers. We concentrate on the topics that we understand. So we were always able to present you with a Quadwelt issue on time even during the corona pandemic. This one is now the last one for 2020. As usual, the information is real: researched and experienced, without photo montages and high-pitched gossip. We speak the way we have come to speak and are happy to answer your suggestions and any criticism. The articles are written by our editors. Vehicles for comparison, for example, were in the same place at the same time. Wherever we have been assisted, this can be traced using the image and text references and the imprint. We accompanied the events that were possible under the special conditions and prepared them for you. This is our job. No lie – let’s save the cohesion and solidarity, which were an important support in the past year, into the coming year,
Ralf Wilke, editor-in-chief
MAXXER, we LoF You!
KYMCO is rather reluctant to introduce new products. The manufacturer successfully relies on the maintenance of its portfolio and reacts to market developments with consistent model updates. As with the long-running MAXXER 300.
Matter of opinion
We have known since our childhood that you can have a lot of fun on three wheels. But at the latest since Can-Am surprised us with the Spyder. What kind of dichotomy was that in the scene: Can a vehicle with three wheels be just as fun to drive as a quad? A clear answer: Yes, because the first customers were mostly people who switched from four to three-wheelers. But can the cheaper Ryker three-wheeler version also convince? We tried it.
Polaris on Fire
To be honest, it’s not easy to get something good out of the current Corona situation. Holger Strien is someone who is pragmatic about the situation. He used the last few months to realize a very special project. We can exclusively present the result in the form of a Polaris RZR in the high-end segment to you here.
Linhai’s great success
Quadix from Bamberg has been offering Linhai for some time. We were on the road on the half-liter M550L model and experienced what the vehicle, which costs just under 6,200 euros, can do.
Jin-Ki Kanno is freely translated from Japanese as “the real ecstasy of being one with the machine”. The Yamaha Motor Company Ltd. celebrates its 65th birthday and reminds with the quoted development philosophy of its great history in engine construction. Yamaha invites us off-road fans to join in the celebration and presents a completely new side-by-side called Wolverine RMAX 1000 for the anniversary.
E! – What’s up?
Hardly any other drive concept polarizes mobile society and motorsport as much as the electric motor. Environmentally friendly alternative or boring humbug? Sustainable or without a chance? The kids on a TomRide don’t care.
Tread new paths
Can-Am has redesigned two of its flagships. The two most popular vehicles in the portfolio will be re-launched in 2021. The “T approval” is important for us in Germany.
You need sturdy shoes to ride an ATV. A truism, because who drives off-road on slippers or ankle boots? It is well known that HAIX manufactures robust boots from Mainburg in Bavaria. Hikers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, climbers, rescue workers and, finally, the armed forces have been relying on the products for many years. So do we!
Out of thin air
Anyone who loves our hobby travels a lot. Always with you: your camera or smartphone. There are almost always photos that you share, with which you can remember great trips and experiences. Lately you can see drones in action more and more often. What’s up-to-date to know?

About the storm and the old man
The motorsport story of the fourth of a total of six planned race weekends for this year’s Endurance Masters season is quickly told. The fact that there is much more behind the efforts of the “old man” is at least as important in view of the German ATV and quad scene and their motorsport ambitions for the future.
60 teams, a good 200 pilots and 60 co-pilots had come to the German Offroad Masters (GORM) 24-hour race at Moto Park Olszyna (Poland) in August. On the 18-kilometer off-road racetrack, victory was fought twice – almost around the clock.

Postponed: 24H Fursten Forest Offroad Race
After the organizers had to postpone the event from March to October, Corona also canceled this new date. The increased number of infections in autumn and the associated official requirements and travel restrictions made implementation impossible. But giving up is not in the dictionary of the organization team.
The offroad busters
In spring 2017 Marcel Ziehr founded the company Offroad-Busters in Markgröningen and turned his hobby into a profession. By then he had been driving ATVs for over 15 years. A core business is accessories, which the team always tries and tests for themselves before something comes into the store.
Tried and tested and unmatched: Ballistol Universal Oil
Ballistol Universal Oil is a gun oil? Far from it: Whether for home, hobby or handicraft, whether for care, protection, cleaning or lubricating, whether at home, at work or on the go – Ballistol Universal Oil is the right oil for 1000 cases and more.

Exciting tours in Romania
SCR Select Cars Strien is not only a good contact for those interested in new vehicles from the off-road sector, but also provides the opportunity to experience the freedom and the adrenaline rush of ATV or SbS driving in the wild.

Three brand new RTV X1110s were recently handed over to the Mayer gravel works in Baden-Württemberg. Under the slogan “Nature is our partner”, the quarry with the attached refinement is managed sustainably and efficiently.

New addition to the BRP dealership. The family-run quad and ATV ranch in Eging am See now has Canadian ATVs and accessories in its portfolio. Peter Kremsreiter senior and jun. are very happy about this expansion and the multitude of new opportunities for their customers.
Can-Am introduces the most powerful all-wheel drive

New tire from Carlisle
The new Pavemaster is a real all-rounder. This new development from the premium manufacturer is designed for all common ATVs and side-by-side. Its areas of application are paved paths and paved roads.
A real help
