Product Review – Roll Cage
Hot Ride 4 U offers two styles of roll cage for the Polaris RZR – Standard and Baja. The Standard is more or less a replacement for the stock cage, and the Baja adds the two bars that go backwards and end up in the bed.
The installation of the roll cage went well. The stock cage removed easily and the new cage lined up with the stock mounting holes with just a little persuasion.
Besides being less than attractive, the stock cage sure didnt give me the warm and fuzzies that it would hold up well in a serious roll over. I wanted to stay as light as possible, and didnt want to take up any of the limited bed space with bars that attach to the bed or rear frame. The roll cage that caught my eye was made by Hot Ride 4 U. The cage is computer designed and tested before the first bend is made. It has a good amount cross bracing for added strength without adding so much that the additional weight will start affecting performance.
The fit and finish of the Hot Ride roll cage is nice and I have received lots of positive compliments on the cage since the install. A few things I would change if I were to do it again is to add another whip flag mount on the passenger side, and I would change the way the shoulder harnesses mount so they wrap around the tube behind the seats instead of bolting to a tab.
