The hill doesn't look all that steep to me. Doe sit look stable to you guys while it was going up? The handlebars looked a bit jerky.

It isn't but on a small incline like this it does help to see what it will be like, not as much of an incline as you'd think from the title of the video.

I made this video

It is difficult to see the incline in the video but it was pretty steep. I had to make a small bridge to get up to the next plateau. Also there was some rocks that was making the front lift up a little but it went up like a champ. Im glad it has a great transmission.. It helped a lot when I was going down.. It is amazing how that transmission works.


I will have more videos the next time I go. I am making a trail up my mountain and that was a small section of the trail.

Got to love doing wheelies on ATV's, something i'd like to on a motorcycle but we all know the risk that comes with that.

Tough to say how thick that ice was but clearly it was thick enough for them to do what they did. Always a good thing to check the thickness for times you're unsure.

:surprise: That doesn't even look like a trail from the aerial view! The Kodiak 700 barely squeezed through those two trees before the bridge.
Thanks for recording the review and I can't wait for more from you!

I'll just embed it for visibility.

How was the handling of the Kodiak on the trail?

Yeah man it was a little sketchy going up that bridge between the trees! I have to do a few adjustments to the trail.
The ultimate goal is to complete the trail to the top of the mountain and go all the way across the top! Every time I go to my land I get closer and closer !

The handling was great! The suspension and clearance was great crawling over all the rocks, holes, and stumps. The transmission is a life saver! Going down anything really steep, the transmission will automatically go into effect. You don't even really need to use your breaks!

I used 4x4 Low going up anything steep that needed the extra torque and power.
