The Streit Group SHERP is a 4x4 amphibious all-terrain vehicle (ATV) which has been designed to operate in all terrains, including swamps, ice, snow, rocky mountains, forests etc. It is able to climb out of the water and onto the ice, ascend a step of one meter in height and maintain its position at critical inclinations.
Each SHERP Ultimate ATV tire has a volume of about 800 liters, as a result, the total volume of the wheels gives a displacement of more than 3,200 kg. This allows the SHERP Ultimate ATV to move along the water also completely sealed body prevents water from entering the compartment. Therefore the SHERP is staying on the water even with zero tire pressure or without all 4 wheels.
