    I was just looking at specs on the 2014 Rincon and then the 2014 Pioneer. I noticed the Pioneer has more ground clearance then the Rincon.
    I said, That is good. I have seen many Rincon's with far enough ground clearance. I think the Pioneer will be OK in this category.

    Pioneer has 10.3 inches at factory.
    Rincon has 9.2 inches at factory.

    I then said. What about a factory Can-am or RZR... what do they come with at factory.
    Here are other 800 cc class sxs's and there ground clearances.

    Polaris RZR S 800 - 12.5
    Polaris Ranger 800- 12 inches
    Can-am Commander 800 - 11 inches

    Thanks Nutmeg for the info.

    You forgot to list the Big Red which has 10.3 inches.

    Ya, your right. 2 inches is not really that much between the Pioneer and the other guys. I do think 10.3 will be enough for the normal rider. Now someone looking to turn it into a mud machine will say different. Once you add some 27" tires you are looking at close to a foot of clearance. A lift kit will just make it more. and give it a year and there will be extreme lift kits with even more for those mudders.
