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.
