The aftermarket for side-by-sides is absolutely massive and obsessed with improving performance and adding style to the latest and greatest UTVs. These companies were waiting with baited breath for the new Can-Am Commander, so when it was unveiled in June we knew it wouldn’t take long before we started seeing products. After all, this was perhaps the most anticipated and long awaited performance UTV ever.

We can’t possibly keep track of every aftermarket company, but the first one notify us about a Commander-specific product is Holz Racing Products, who unveiled a new long travel suspension kit for Can-Am’s side-by-side.

Though Holz isn’t quite ready for its long travel kit to hit dealerships, it has given interested early Commander buyers a first look.

“We designed the long travel kit to be a simple bolt‐in solution,” says Mark Holz, owner of Holz Racing Products. “Just like our successful and respected Polaris RZR Long Travel +4 Kit, the Commander Kit will include all necessary hardware in one complete package.”

The kit will feature tig‐welded, chromoly construction; will include necessary hardware such as tierod extensions, longer brake lines and axle shafts; and will be finished in a durable black powder coat.

While final details and pricing are still being ironed out, Holz and his crew of precision fabricators are pleased with the results thus far and are on‐target to deliver the Commander Long Travel Kit to market in unison with the Can‐am Commander arriving in dealerships this fall.

“We are working through the final details now,” says Holz. “The performance of the kit even in its early stages was very good, now we’re working on final calibrations.”

In addition to the long travel kit, Holz is also developing other Commander performance products such as Half Doors, Rock Sliders, Front and Rear Bumpers, a Skid Plate Kit and more.
