My Impressions:


Pros:
Available in tint or clear.

Sporty in design but very functional.

Made from premium, 0.80" thick, optical-grade polycarbonate.

1/2 shield is designed to push air and dust up and over the riders.

Windshield is easy to clean and is priced right.

Cons:
None.

Bottom Line:
When we received our Polaris Rzr 4 for long term review the weather was still a bit on the brisk side, and I wanted to ride without getting to much cold air in my face. We had several options from the full windshield to a half windshield to choose from in the Polaris Accessories catalog but we decided to go a different route this time.  Having used the Cobra Windshields from PowerMadd on our sleds I decided to try one of their 1/2 windshields on the new Polaris Rzr 4.

Like their sled windshields the UTV Windshields are very easy to install. Just line up the windshield where you want it, attach your 4 roll-bar clamps loosely, position your windshield pucks, & tighten your roll-bar clamps. It took me all of 15 minutes to install, and can be done by anyone that can operate a screwdriver.

I like the way the windshield gives you an on-obstructed view over the hood, but also gives you adequate protection from the wind at the same time. This is the way I like to ride, and this windshield does it's job very well due to it's special flared design.

Cleaning your windshield is done like anything else and should be done with care so as not to scratch your windshield. I wash mine off when I wash my machines and I use the same care as I do for cleaning my helmets shields. Do this and your windshield will last, and it will retain that optical-grade distortion-free viewing for a long time.

The bottom line is if you want to install a quality windshield on your UTV, you have options, and one of them is the PowerMadd Cobra UTV Windshield. I have been using PowerMadd products on my atv's, snowmobiles, and now my UTV's, and I highly recommend them.
