With all due respect to your shuttle vehicle of choice, we guarantee it has nothing on this bad boy. Meet the DWT Downhill (and uphill) Assault Vehicle, which was built in partnership with the Intense Cycles team and tested in Sedona, Arizona. The basic idea was to create a four-seat UTV that could go mountain biking. The build started with a 4-wheel drive 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo with 144 horsepower. Then new tires, new wheels, and a rack for four bikes were added. Check out this video to see this trail shredder in action.

Here’s a part by part rundown of what went into this custom shuttle build.
