WHEN YOU’RE OFF-ROAD IN SOME OF THE WORLD’S MOST EXTREME CONDITIONS AND VARIED TERRAINS, A NORMAL KEY DOESN’T CUT IT. WE CREATED A SECURE SYSTEM CALLED D.E.S.S., REPLACING TRADITIONAL METAL KEYS WITH AN INEXPENSIVE, DEALER-PROGRAMMABLE “KEY” THAT UNLOCKS EXTRA FEATURES ON YOUR CAN-AM OFF-ROAD VEHICLE.
- Advanced anti-theft protection
- Encrypted technology that restricts access to your ignition system
- One vehicle—one D.E.S.S. code
- Vibration-resistant ball-and-socket design
Every 2021 Can-Am Off-Road vehicle comes with one (1) D.E.S.S. key, but additional ones can be added at any time. In addition, reprogramming spare keys or ones for younger riders is possible:
- Work / Learning key reduces the vehicle’s top speed to 25 mph without limiting the engine torque.
- Normal key reduces torque and top speed to 44mph (70 km/h)
- Performance key unleashes full performance
Already own multiple D.E.S.S. keys? They can be reprogrammed at any time, depending on your needs—just call or visit your Can-Am Off-Road dealer.
