We wanted a race-style roll cage,
because making a mistake is inevitable
at the speeds we like to cover terrain.
We went with Pro Armor’s Asylum
cage. It’s tough, easy to bolt on and
looks way nicer than the stock cage.
The roll cage wraps all the way to the
back of the car, tying into the rear rod
plate. It offers a lot of strength and
security to the back of the car and
significantly better coverage for both
the driver and passenger.
Baking in the sun is no fun on any
excursion, and you really want a good
lid in case of a roll-over, so a roof was
also necessary. We added the Pro
Armor Asylum roof. It’s aluminum, and
it bolts on very easily and securely.
It’s also race-legal, high quality and it
We also added Pro Armor doors;
they tie into the cage well, although
you could run the cage without
doors. The doors add security, even
it you’re not sliding around corners
at breakneck speeds. The Pro
Armor doors are race-legal for most
organizations, and some require a
secondary latch, but that’s easy to
add when needed. The doors are
available with either the aluminum
panels we chose or mesh webbing.
Pro Armor offers three-, four- or
five-point safety harnesses. They are
available in three colors. We chose
black and the four-point. The fifth
point comes from under the seat and
through the crotch area; some race
organizations require the five-point
harness, but we didn’t feel the need
in a recreational car. The four-point
harnesses have you so strapped in
tight, making you really feel secure.
The Pro Armor harness is wide and,
with the padding, very comfortable,
and it also has a couple of pockets
that are real handy. We keep an
LED flashlight in both the driver and
co-driver pockets, and there are still
two more pockets to use.
We also wanted safety for the car
itself, so we added the Pro Armor
ADVENTURE RZR XP 900
Maxxis eight-ply Bighorns on WER beadlock
wheels (from the Jagged X LE) provide
plenty of flat protection, so a soothing
afternoon of high-mountain trout fishing isn’t
ruined by a flat tire.
Setting up a RZR XP900 for racing is one thing, but building an adventure XP 900 for getting
to the fishing hole first is quite another. Allen Knowles of CT Racing set out to convert his
Polaris for exploring, fishing and hunting in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
