Can-Am DS 450 X Sets Guinness Record Distance ATV Jump
Staff

Jon Guetter aboard his lightly modified Can-AmTM DS 450 XTM wrote himself into the Guinness Book of World Records by completing a ramp to ramp distance jump front of a thousands of cheering fans. The distance, 176.11 feet, represents a new record in the ATV category and smashed the old record by more than 27 feet. Guetter's jump was part of the Crusty Demon's Night of World Records show in Melbourne, Australia; his record was one of six world records set that evening.

"We are always pleased when someone chooses the Can-Am DS 450 X for any type of riding," said Del Bohlman, Product, Media Relation and Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs. "However, to choose the DS 450 for such an amazing feat proves the confidence Jon Guetter had in our product; we are honored he used our ATV to complete the historic jump."

The rider is known for his performances with the Akraix freestyle team, which uses Can-Am ATVs exclusively. He is also known across the world as the man who attempted and landed the first backflip on an ATV. He will be performing with the rest of the Akraix riders at events across North America in 2008.

Guetter was proud to break the old record aboard a DS 450 X, "This ATV represents the cutting edge in ATV design and performance," he said. "To break the old record on a machine that is basically stock proves how capable the DS 450 really is, I am extremely excited to hold a new record not only for myself, but Can-Am as well."

The Akraix freestyle team performs all over the world using Can-Am ATVs exclusively. Visit www.akraix.com for more information on the performance team and upcoming performances
