It has an independent throttle with a ‘quick-disconnect’ function. The Ranger 5.0 can manage a payload of 325 lb; including you, your kit and catch. With 4.0” wide tires, this beast easily meanders through forest roads, mud, sand, snow and loose dirt. The Ranger 5.0 comes in one 18” frame size and uses a rigid fork.
