With the continuous vehicle upgrades being made to off-road side x side(UTV) vehicles, buggies, and Jeeps, XS Power decided the Unlimited Off-road Expo would be a great place to debut our NEW PowerSports line of batteries. Aftermarket items like stereos, amps, lights, winches, GPS, you name it and it’s is being added to the most popular side x sides and offroad vehicles on the market, but when you add all these accessories you need a battery with enough power to keep it all going and lets face the stock battery is just not enough. The NEW PS550A, PS320A, PS240A are made specifically for powersports applications and have a 2 yr warranty, so from a light weight race buggy to a decked out RZR, XS Power now has your powersports needs covered! UOR 2015 was an event like none we have ever attended, full of underground mega-cavern cruising on Friday night, UTV side x side freestyle and back flips competition, and some serious Ultra4 and Rock Bouncer racing which went on all day and part of the night Saturday, heck if you sign the insurance waiver and are willing to spent $5 you to could even test your skills and vehicle on the man-made outdoor off-road course. XS Power had a great experience and got to meet some great new friends like Kenny Hauk from HaukDesigns, haukdesigns.com. Kenny builds some amazing off-road show pieces like the TomaHauk and we are looking forward to seeing his latest creation at the 2015 SEMA show, which will be sporting 2 of our S3400 batteries in a custom dual battery tray built by Genesis Offroad, genesisoffroad.com.

From the most sophisticated Racepak data systems, to the MSD Power Grid, these cars take a lot of battery power to get them down the track…XS Power is more than up to the challenge. We’re proud to be Lokar’s battery choice on these gorgeous cars, and many of their other projects and always excited to see what we can collectively come up with.
