    Six Russian travellers began their 10,000 km (6,200 mile) trip 'To the East' on off-road SHERP vehicles on Friday. They plan to cross Russia from Arkhangelsk to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in 6-8 months, which would make their trip the longest on-land route behind the Arctic Circle.

    SHERP’s greatest strength is that it’s virtually unsinkable thanks to its huge self-inflating tires, each a whopping 1.6 meters across, filled with 800 liters of exhaust gases, and a unique tread, which ensures a very comfortable 6 kilometers per hour in floating mode.

    The Sherp ATV is the prototype of mass-production off-roaders with hipper cabins and other user-friendly bells and whistles.
