Polaris is continuing its XPEDITION Customs series, with Episode 2 featuring freeride mountain biker and motorsports athlete Brandon Semenuk. The company and athlete have teamed up to design and build an XPEDITION model tailor-made for his extreme escapades.

Brandon Semenuk is no stranger to the adrenaline and excitement that comes with powersports. He's an X-Game Gold Medalist, five-time Joyride winner, four-time Red Bull Rampage Winner, and three-time Mountain Bike World Champion. Having extensive experience with things on wheels, it's no surprise that he was a shoe-in to work with Polaris on a project together.

Semenuk and Polaris have teamed up to create what is essentially the ideal UTV for his use case, with Polaris turning to Draco UTV to build "the ultimate Polaris XPEDITION." This meant adding performance and utility upgrades specifically chosen to assist in backcountry exploration in his quest to explore and build new trails.

The most recent episode of XPEDITION Customs sees the team giving Semenuk the overview of what Draco UTV did to make this happen, showcasing things like bike and roof racks, trail shaping tools, an on-board air compressor, and more. Be sure to check out the video, and drool over the build list below.
