SuperATV’s Rhino 2.0 Axles are a forced to be reckoned with no matter where you choose to put them to the test—on the trails, on the race track, over rocky terrain, you name it. But where did the inspiration and design for Rhino 2.0 Axles come from? The answer: you. This axle lineup is based entirely on customer feedback. The experts at SuperATV listened to your needs and then delivered based on what you’re looking for in an off-road axle. Watch this video to learn more about the planning, design, and testing that goes into every Rhino 2.0 Axle we make.

[0:00] Hello! Kyle here at SuperATV. I’d like to take a minute to go over the goals we had for SuperATV’s Rhino 2.0 Axle lineup.
[0:15] Every upgrade we’ve made to the Rhino Axle lineup is based on customer feedback. Our customers told us they wanted a stronger axle that can handle hardcore beat downs time and time again.
We spent years perfecting the Rhino formulas and have manufacturing dialed in, leaving you with the ultimate axle lineup.
[0:32] The new axles and the Rhino Axle line are an example of SuperATV’s industry-leading innovation and commitment to producing the highest-quality axles that are affordable and dependable. We are very excited to introduce our new Rhino 2.0 Axle line, so let’s jump over and talk to Trent about how we achieved these goals.
For you, our customer, we identified three critical areas that an axle needs.
The first one is torsion. What is the sheer breaking point of the axle? How strong can we make them before they break—both the CV and the shaft?
[1:03] Number two is endurance. Not only do we want to make sure you have a strong axle, but an axle that will last you for years on end. Our endurance machine is capable of producing speeds up to 175 MPH that we’re not able to replicate in the field. It’ll also monitor heat, so we can ensure that there are no seized CVs, blown boots, or a breakdown of grease. All this is to make sure our customers have an axle that will last for years and years.
Number three: fatigue. To ensure the Rhino formula has an optimal blend, we use our fatigue machine to replicate miles and miles of riding to make sure the shafts and components don’t become brittle over time, leaving you stranded on the trail.
Our endurance machine can replicate up to 20 inches of suspension travel, a 45 degree steering angle, and speeds up to 175 MPH, all while data logging CV temperature, torque, and speed.
[2:01] Our fatigue machine helps us replicate years of riding in a matter of days. We can cycle up to three times a second to replicate any off-throttle or slippery conditions, like hill climbs and other conditions you may see on the trail.
This here is our torsion machine. This allows us to test axles straight or at an angle, as seen here. We can replicate up to a 45 degree angle to replicate lift kits or long travel kits. We can also use this machine to test shafts, cups, spiders, or cages. Plus, this also allows us to test our competitor to see how they stack up against the Rhino Axle.

I have a 2012 can am commander with a 4” Catvos lift
Can you make an axle that can fit ?
Hey John, thanks for tuning in! Unfortunately, we only manufacture axles specifically for our big lift, long travel, or stock suspension. We currently do not offer any custom length axles. Thanks for checking with us!
My name is John , I put your 4″ back trailing arms with the 2.0 axles in 2017 commander. My question is both inner boots spewed grease all over looks like around the clamp? This shouldn’t be normal have about 150 miles on the set up.
Hey John. No, that’s definitely not normal. Give us a call and we can help troubleshoot! 855-743-3427 Thanks for checking in with us!
Have your products ever been used as standard equipment by a manufacturer ?
Thanks and best regards
Hey Jean-Charles. We have supplied products to a few different manufacturers over the years and we continue to supply some now. I have to be a little vague, but our focus is on supplying customers, not manufacturers. Thanks for the good question!
