Feat. SHERP Pro
“It felt time to get dirty and have a little fun with my father and Michael, and the SHERP of New England ATV was perfect for that. I can’t remember the last time I’d laughed so hard.”
In 2015 Sherp began construction on this wild unstoppable ATV, and it quickly found fans on the internet for its go-anywhere abilities. This monster two-seater isn’t exactly fast, but it won’t be held back by rocks, snow, mud, or a lake. With a Sherp you can drive as the crow flies instead of having to take pesky roads. But, it can’t be that good in real life, can it?

Meet the Sherp ATV and it’s incredible abilities.
There are many specialized off-road vehicles out there, but it’s not often we see something as well thought out as the Sherp ATV.
When Sherp sat down to design the ultimate ATV, the brief was simple. In fact, the brief was to build in simplicity. The ATV had to be easy to repair with minimal tools and have minimal electrical components to go wrong. It also needed to go absolutely anywhere, including through swamps and forest floors full of deadfall, and across the water or sand dunes.
The Sherp ATV is one of the most intriguing vehicles on sale anywhere in the world and during the launch of the YZY QNTM shoes from Kanye West, the rapper and producer brought a fleet of Sherps to the streets of Chicago.
Videos from the launch of the sneakers show a handful of Sherp models all painted black cruising down a host of Chicago’s city streets looking utterly bizarre. We’ve seen heaps of videos of the Sherp tackling intense off-road challenges but this is one of the first times we’ve seen them being driven on public roads. Jaw-dropping doesn’t even begin to describe them.
Kanye is known to run a fleet of futuristic, all-black ATVs at his 4000-acre ranch in Cody, Wyoming – as shown in his “Closed on Sunday” video. The all-terrain vehicles are from a Ukrainian company called SHERP and they’re not your typical off-roader.
Sherp vehicles, the company says, are built for “extreme operational conditions” and are used by oil and rescue workers, hunters, and “thrill seekers.” They take the term “all terrain” to the next level, with the ability to climb over three-foot-tall obstacles, ascend 35-degree gradients, drive for 115 hours without refueling, and cruise across open water if need be.
