In-Development –  The Backcountry Porter style Outrigger

Backcountry Supercub’s engineers are now in development of our advanced HTS (high travel suspension) package, a modified outrigger style of the Porter config. Offering you the use of a wider array of  Hub, Brake and Wheel configurations, this also opens up an increase in fuel and trim versatility.

The genesis of this is our own experience in how to get into areas that may have been previously a bit to rowdy to attempt before.

We look forward to offering them to you this Spring, 2017.
