The present disclosure concerns embodiments of an improved wheel assembly for a drive track unit of an all-terrain vehicle that inhibits the accumulation of snow, ice and/or other matter between the track and the wheel assembly. In one implementation, an improved guide wheel assembly for a track unit has a rotatable hub and at least two axially spaced apart guide wheels mounted to the hub that engage the inner surface of an endless track. A flexible and/or deformable sleeve covering the outer surface of the hub is capable of deforming under external pres...
I claim: 1. A wheel assembly for an endless drive track of a drive track unit of an all-terrain vehicle, the wheel assembly comprising: a rotatable hub having an outer surface; at least first and second wheels mounted to opposite sides of the hub for engaging the track; and a sleeve extending around the outer surface of the hub, the sleeve having an outer surface inwardly spaced from the track, and defining a plurality of circumferentially spaced-apart, deformable projections configured to deform under externally applied pressure, thereby inhibiting acc...
