24-position compression adjusters.
The RZR S WER shocks are tuned
more for performance and have more
adjustment, giving it the suspension
performance edge. The General has
more need of: front and rear torsion
bars to better fight body roll. It needs
them, because the higher seating
position creates more weight transfer
under hard cornering, braking and
acceleration than the low-slung RZR.
WHICH HAS STRONGER BRAKES?
The RZR S 1000. It has dual-piston
calipers at all four wheels, while the
General only has twin-puck front
calipers. So, not only does the RZR S
have more braking power, it has 309
pounds less vehicle weight to scrub.
Both have 27-inch tires; the RZR has
GBC Dirt Commanders on 12-inch
rims, and the General has Maxxis
Coronados on 14-inch rims. The GBCs
are more aggressive.
WHICH RULES ROCKS, MUD AND SNOW?
The General. Both have similar
ground clearance, with the RZR
having a 1/2-inch advantage at 12. 5
inches. It also only has more shock
settings for a little better articulation
in rocks. The General has more
damping to overcome in rocks, but it
also has a lower low, a 2-inch-longer
wheelbase for stability and half doors
for confidence. It also has a higher
seat than the RZR by 2 inches to read
For tight turns, the RZR S 1000 EPS has a clear advantage with
lighter weight and snappy power, but the General is no slouch. It
has more weight to bend, but it also has an unlocking rear diff.
Both UTVs have front and rear torsion bars and EBS.
Both the General and RZR S have dual-piston front calipers, CV
guards and long A-arms with 12. 25 inches of travel. The General and
RZR S both have front and rear torsion bars to fight body roll in turns.
The General’s Fox Podium 2.0 QS3 shocks have three selections for
ride quality, while the RZR S sports Walker Evans 2.0 needle shocks
with 24-position compression adjusters. Rear travel is 13. 2 inches on
both UTVs, but the Ride Command General also has a Versa-Trac
unlocking rear diff for tighter turns and turf-saving mode.
