A UTV roll cage is more than just a bunch of metal welded together. It is a barrier, a protector, a shield between you and the crushing weight of your vehicle in the unfortunate event of a roll over. Sounds like an impossibility. Believe us, it can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. You can’t plan for an accident – but you can be prepared in the event of one. And while proper 4-point and 5-point harnesses as well as helmets and other safety accessories are helpful, an RZR roll cage is arguably the most helpful thing to have in the event of a rollover. Some riders you talk to will praise the factory Polaris RZR cage as safe for general use, while others consider it to be nothing more than a roof support. Now, not everyone is able to afford a new cage, nor do they want to deal with fitment. But here at Everything Polaris RZR, we make it easy to get the right roll cage for your rig.
By adding additional bracing and welding the connection points, with potential reinforcement, you can modify your stock RZR cage to distribute the impact damage better; requiring more points of failure before total failure. One could add some triangulation (without a bender even) for just a few hundred bucks. However, at that point, a couple hundred more dollars and you can have a full Dom custom cage from a reputable aftermarket RZR roll cage maker such as Cagewerx or ABF. And in the view of many riders, the stock “roll cage” on the RZR is nothing more than a death trap waiting to collapse, so adding tubing isn’t going to help when you roll it. This makes sense if you really think about it. The manufacturer doesn’t build these machines to roll on a regular basis. Much like the protection provided by most automotive and even heavy machinery. Regardless, we know a lot of riders that have rolled RZRs with factory cages, and in most cases they are fine... once. Two roll overs is a roll of the dice. You can brace them to make them better in a pinch, but your best option is to just pop on an aftermarket roll cage. After all, why gamble with your life or the lives of your passengers?
