Industry first!

ATV Connection had the to ride Cannondale’s newest in their ATV product line, the dune-devouring demon” Glamis Overall the Glamis 440 is a great machine; plenty of power to the Mail’ and great suspension to up anything the dunes can dish However we did notice a few things needed improvement to make the 440 the perfect dune demon.

The Glamis 440 is based off of Cannondales model. Minor changes made such as softer settings, different fuel mapping, orange graphics and encasements with silver front and rear dune and a flag. Cannondale is big on safety; we impressed to see the machine come the standard owners manual and check sheets, along a safety video and a safety game.

The game takes you all the safety checks such as nuts and bolts, fluid as well as having the proper gear then the user can a terrain type and drive the course while getting tips throughout the game.

Arriving at the Glamis sand we were eager to try the Glamis After unloading it was given the inspection to make sure it was to ride. The first thing you is the placement of the headlights and the shape of the plastic. Cannondales have a almost frog like After our first ride it was that the Glamis 440 is no toad!

We noticed the topside of the plastic to be pitted like it was in a very bad but on the bottom side it was smooth as if it was It turns out that this machine was not brand new and had a few dune on it already. It’s still a as to what happened to the plastic.

It to be pitted in area’s where a would not affect it like behind the seat. With inspection we noticed a rattle in the It sounded like the center was loose but it gave us zero all week.

With is breadbox like it is a rather large silencer. It has a polished look, almost which fits into the community perfect. Most really like the polished goodies available for their but we are unsure why it is so large.

One of our test suggested for the Glamis edition the all aluminum frame would very trick if it were polished. This would be easy to do at the factory and the duners eat it up!

It comes stock with GBC tires. The rear tires are the type, which are generally than the non-molded type of The GBC’s seemed to work but a non-molded tire would be a lot thus giving the machine un-sprung weight and more The front ‘razorback’ types of are great in the dunes.

The ridge in the middle of the tire great turning ability! On the of the quad is a plastic rear plate. It is not really needed in the but does provide some if you happen to find a rock and the quad to glide over the if you high center it on a dune There is no engine/full body plate.

A full body plate would make the glide over dune rather than digging in and you down.

Starting the Cannondale is a bit than other ATV’s due to its fuel injection. With the key in the ON the easy pulling hydraulic needs to be pulled in then the starter button is pressed. The difference is NOT giving it any gas while the starter button.

If the gas is pressed the machine will not very easy and the motor most likely flood. All of our riders are so used to applying gas to an ATV they had to put their right on their leg while starting it to themselves about the unique procedure. Once started the sounds like it’s to fly apart! The added noise is due to the cut gears in the transmission. Straight cut give much better than bevel cut gears.

you’re on the gas the motor is very

Sitting on the ATV we found the seat to be soft and the controls relatively placed on the TAG handlebars. The clutch seemed to be to far in from the end of the bars, it pulled in there was an inch gap the end of the lever and the end of the bars. The throttle needed to be rotated slightly so our wrists were in a more position.

The shift lever was perfectly and allowed your boot to easy effortless shifts some seat time of our test riders noticed the TAG handlebars seemed too straight and a low. We felt they be more comfortable if the grips swept back more they were along a longer steering stem anti-vibe mounts to help vibration. Most of these are problems and easily fixed simple adjustments.
