DEI Helps Cool off the Red Hot Polaris® Slingshot™


Polaris® has redefined the powersports market segment with the recent introduction of its exciting three-wheeled Slingshot™. With its compact design and 4 cylinder engine, the muffler, catalytic converter, and exhaust manifold all reside in close proximity to one another on the right side of the vehicle. This concentration of heat easily transfers into the passenger area, cooking the floor and cockpit area.

To address the heat issue, DEI Powersports has developed a custom cut, 11 piece kit that includes a double walled main heat shield, a single walled floor pan heat shield, nine additional pieces to cover the transmission tunnel, rocker panels and center console. The end result is a cooler and quieter Slingshot; allowing for longer rides and improved rider comfort.

DEI Powersports Brand Manager Brian VanKoevering offered, "This is the first summer season for this vehicle. When the mercury rose, our phone started to ring off the hook with exasperated Slingshot owners looking for relief from the heat. After some R&D work, we developed a kit with a range of thermal and acoustic materials that perfectly addresses all of the heat and noise issues."
