Minneapolis – In times of disaster, communication is critical for emergency response but often the means to keep technology charged disappears in the wake of the storm. To aid Salvation Army disaster relief work in the south after tornadoes devastated dozens of communities, Minnesota-based Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII) donated several pallets of Polaris POWER™ Digital Inverter Generators perfect for recharging communication devices. The generators will be shipped to Salvation Army disaster relief central in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma today.
Chandler, AZ — One size does not fit all… especially when it comes to the popular Polaris XP 1000! That is where DragonFire’s HighBack seats come in. Last year we “broadened” our seat range to include the XL seats for riders with 40+ inch waist sizes. Now we are proud to announce another DragonFire first: Fully adjustable aftermarket seats for the RZR XP1K!
Both our original GT and new XL series of HighBack seats upgrade the factory XP 1000 seats without compromising the OEM slider/adjustment capabilities. In fact, DragonFire’s HighBack GT & XL seats actually improve the function of the factory adjustment mechanism. These seats keep the adjustment lever tucked up out of the way compared to the highly vulnerable stock location.
Featured locations this year include Glamis, The Rubicon Trail, Tennessee, Colorado and even a special international ride in Dubai! Plus, there’s the ever popular Project X episodes featuring over-the-top custom builds.
Destination Polaris is in its fifth season and can be seen across North America on these channels: Fox Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Florida, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports North, Fox Sports Ohio, Fox Sports Oklahoma, Fox Sports South, Fox Sports Southwest, Fox Sports West, Fox Sports Wisconsin, MSG Plus, MASN 2, Sun Sports, ROOT Sports Pittsburgh, ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain, ROOT Sports Northwest and WILD TV Canada.
