Wilwood has announced a new big brake kit for the Can-Am Maverick X3. There’s some serious hardware here, with six-piston fixed-mount calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear, each available in standard black, red, or gray. If you want another color, Wilwood can also provide custom options for a little more coin. Wilwood pairs those calipers with 11.25-inch rotors in your choice of smooth or drilled, and the company says its discs are 20 percent larger than the factory pieces. They’re also a bit thicker.
Of course, all that kit comes at a price. Both front and rear kits start at $1,414.91, and prices go up for drilled rotors. That’s no small ask, but the kits come with everything you need for the installation.
We loved our project X3, but found the brakes to be the weakest link. With nearly 200 horsepower and 35-inch tires, the factory two-piston calipers and tiny rotors weren’t up to the task of repeated high-speed stops. For more information, head over to the Wilwood site.
