EZ-Steer EPS for the Brute

Rode it a few hours yeterday. Loved it. This is what all older IRS Brutes needed.

Here's a..rather lengthy video review. Sorry. Cut 2.5 hours down to like 15 minutes. Kick it up to HD.

Fun, fun, fun. Sounds like you're hooked on EPS! Try a non-EPS Brute in a couple of months - you won't be able to stand it.

One thing that worries me is riders with less experience tend to get lulled into relaxing their grip and even one-handed steering - very dangerous. It doesn't bump steer very often, but it will eventually and if you don't have a sollid grip, you'll be very sorry.

Oh, I know...trust me. Even with the stabilizer you wouldn't want to ride one-handed.

Nice Vid Report, looks like the EZ-steer is a Winner, I bet they sell a ton of them after your Video gets out. Too bad there aren't any good rough rocky sections like in the Jemez Mountains to see how well it does w/rocks, you know a few of the trails I mean.
50mph is all you did but that terrain was flying by, looked like a great afternoon for a test ride and almost had the entire area to yourself..

Yeah...I know the trail you speak of in Jemez...It made my brother on his Grizz cry uncle...Dave and I with the new Elkas hardly noticed it. Can't wait to take it up there...and Sipapu.

You are going to love it SWBF.

Thanks NM, good review!

I called SuperATV and spoke with Corey? I think it was a couple days ago, I'm trying to talk my boss into buying an EPS for his Razr with me but he's a little concerned (and maybe rightfully so) about mud and water wreaking havoc on the system.

I see you've got a nice dry terrain out there to ride, anyone have any time/experience in a wetter/muddier environment with one of these EPS systems? My BF needs PS bad, but I'd of course want it to be consistent and reliable, not affected by the elements
