DEI Helps Cool off the Red Hot Polaris® Slingshot™

DEI Helps Cool off the Red Hot Polaris® Slingshot™ [fid:3473] Avon Lake, Ohio (August 7, 2015) 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 transfers into the passenger area, cooking the floor and cockpit area.

To address this heat issue, Slingshot™ owners have turned to DEI Powersports to develop a custom cut, 11 piece kit that includes a double walled main heat shield, a single walled floor pan heat shield, and an additional 9 pieces covering the transmission tunnel, rocker panels and center console. The end result is a cooler and quieter Slingshot, allowing for longer rides and greater rider comfort.

DEI Powersports Brand Manager Brian VanKoevering offered, “This is the first summer season for this vehicle, so when the mercury rose our phone started to ring off the hook with exasperated Slingshot owners looking for relief. After some R&D work, we developed a range of materials that fit this application well.”
