x Side Magazine UTV Shootout
Team Joyner USA at its first controlled Side-by-Side
competition with Yamaha, Polaris, John Deer, Cub Cadet, Kawasaki, Tom Car and
Arctic Cat proved it belongs squarely alongside the popular Powers ports
manufacturers. The Editors of Side X Side magazine and their staff
organized a two-day event that covered many off road challenges. The
course was one that many consumers may not even dare to tackle. Joyner was
able to compete with all the popular brand names and even exceeded them in
many areas. The testing was the most aggressive that has ever been conducted
by a magazine to date.
The course started with a hill climb where the vehicles were
required to maneuver through an intense riverbed while climbing out, over and
around boulders, rocks and ridges that the recent rain had formed.The next event was a desert ride at high speed in and out of washes that were filled with sand and
rocks. The many sharp turns necessitated the vehicles to maneuver at speeds in
excess of 40 mph. The Joyner Trooper and Renegade handled all that was put to
it and more. Several times the staff or a Joyner technician tried to find a
hill or obstacle that they could not climb but the Joyner vehicles were
unstoppable and lived up to their slogan “Anywhere Anytime Any terrain”.
Several times the popular brand names tried to follow the Trooper in action
but they only met with failure, having to back
down the hills. The Trooper and
Renegade were able to show that they were a force to reckon with.
With many factory personnel there at the testing site, the
President and CEO of Joyner International decided to attend the event. He is
an off road fanatic and loves to ride, he put on his gloves and for over four
hours we could not get him out of the vehicles, Joyner had brought three extra
vehicles so the Joyner staff could test and play, mostly play and boy did they
play. John pushed a Trooper to levels that no consumer would. He had it up on
two wheels and hitting the edges of the river bed at speed in excess of 40
mph. Many of the popular brand names staff had observed the Joyner staff
throughout the two day event and congratulated them on their performance and
ability to launch the new UTV’s.
to see them in action.
