Polaris Acquires Pro Armor

Nov 12, 2014 - 4:45 PM - by 4Nines
Adding Pro Armor strengthens Polaris’ aftermarket offerings for performance side-by-side and ATV markets

Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced the acquisition of certain assets of LSI Products Inc. and Armor Holdings, LLC, privately-held Riverside, Calif.-based companies that design, develop, manufacture, source, sell and distribute accessories for performance side-by-side vehicles and ATV markets under the Pro Armor brand. This acquisition adds Pro Armor to Polaris’ growing parts, garments and accessories (PG&A) business. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“The acquisition of Pro Armor adds another industry-leading brand to our growing stable of PG&A aftermarket brands, a key contributor to Polaris’ growth and profitability,” said Steve Eastman, Polaris’ vice president of PG&A. “Pro Armor is a leading brand in performance side- by-side accessories with a relentless commitment to innovation, style, performance and quality. The addition of Pro Armor to Polaris’ aftermarket brand portfolio allows us to extend our channel and customer reach in the performance side-by-side and ATV markets. Our common culture and shared passion for the Powersports industry and consumer will create an exciting platform for continued innovation and accelerated growth.”

Pro Armor will continue to operate as a distinct brand and the operations will remain in Riverside. Both Polaris and Pro Armor will continue to develop independent product plans while leveraging development, sourcing and distribution capabilities.

“Both Pro Armor and Polaris are driven by a high degree of passion and determination to develop the best customer-focused product solutions in the industry,” said Alex Danze, President and CEO, Pro Armor. “Pro Armor’s success is built on an intimate understanding of the rider and we look forward to becoming a part of the Polaris family where we can take our market leadership and customer relationships to the next level.”

Polaris Urges Off-Road Enthusiasts to Stand Up and Let Your Voice Be Heard

Nov 10, 2014 - 4:23 PM - by 4Nines
Proposed U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission mandates negatively affect handling and performance capabilities of Side-by-Side Vehicles


Minneapolis, November 7, 2014- Polaris® Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles, today asked off-road enthusiasts to stand up and let their voices be heard regarding the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) proposed mandates for off-road, side-by-side vehicles (ROVs).

Despite willingness by Polaris and other manufacturers, along with the Recreation Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA), to work in unison with the CPSC to develop ongoing safety improvements for all off-highway vehicles, the CPSC appears determined to mandate handling and performance capabilities, and require excessive and potentially unsafe restraint systems for future ROVs. If not halted, the mandate will unnecessarily limit design freedom in the off-road industry and negatively impact off-road customers.

The proposed CPSC “rule” would require Polaris and other manufacturers to make arbitrary design changes to all future side-by-side vehicles. The proposed changes could lead to future off-road vehicles with reduced steering response, reduction in ground clearance, and more restrictive driver and passenger restraint and seatbelt systems.

“As an off-road community, we have a tremendous challenge in front of us,” said Paul Vitrano, VP, global government relations for Polaris. “As a unified community, we can protect our right to design, build and ride for today and the future.”

Polaris is asking off-road enthusiasts to reach out to Congress, and voice their opposition. More information about the proposed mandate and how to speak out can be found at CPSC Ruling - Protect Your Right To Ride | Polaris Off Road Vehicles. Also be sure to voice your opinion on the CPSC Contact Form at Send a Message to CPSC's Information Center | CPSC.gov.

Silverado Polaris ACE+ Concept Ready for the Trail

Nov 03, 2014 - 9:43 AM - by 4Nines

Outdoor recreation-themed concept paired with innovative off-road vehicle


The Chevrolet Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept shows that while Chevy’s full-size truck was designed for work, it also works hard to enable recreational interests. The outdoors-themed concept debuts at the SEMA Show this week and is paired with the new Polaris® ACE™ – a revolutionary single-seat, sit-in off-road vehicle launched earlier this year.

The concept truck is based on the production 2015 Silverado 1500 crew cab with a 6-foot-6-inch cargo bed and the Z71 Off-Road package.

“The Silverado is designed to work hard for its owner, on or off the clock,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “Pairing it with the new Polaris ACE perfectly illustrates how the Silverado easily changes its support role when it’s time to leave the job site for the trail head.”

Blending production accessories available through Chevrolet dealers and concept components under evaluation for future production, the Silverado Polaris ACE+ concept conveys the ruggedness of today’s outdoorsmen. Its ready-for-anything stance is driven by large, 33-inch–by-12.5-inch off-road tires mounted on Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch aluminum wheels, while concept fender flares enhance the truck’s broad-shouldered appearance.

Additional exterior features include a concept bed-mounted sports bar with custom LED lighting and a concept front nudge bar. The cargo bed also features the available, spray-on bedliner – with the Chevy bowtie logo – that’s offered on all Silverado models for 2015. A black exterior, with blacked-out trim, is accented with graphics coordinated with the Polaris ACE.

Inside, the concept truck features leather-trimmed seating and the latest connectivity features offered across the Silverado lineup, including MyLink enhancements with Text Messaging Alerts, Siri Eyes Free and new, available OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected (includes a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial) – a... [Read More]

Polaris ACE 570 Racing Action!

Oct 31, 2014 - 9:34 AM - by 4Nines

Racers start your engines! Polaris was kind enough to invite ACEForums.net out to participate in the first ever ACE Race that was held at the GNCC Ironman races in Crawfordsville, IN. Our race took place after all the ATV races and just before the UTV races started. Because of that, we had a good amount of ruts and ATV race lines worn into the track before we started. I have never been to, nor competed in a GNCC race before, and I was not sure exactly what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised! The track was pretty much carved out of a corn field that ran down through some very narrow wooded trails. Up on top of the wide open field the track designers built a gnarly high speed Motocross track. The majority of our race was held on this Motocross portion where there were some steep elevation changes and large table top jumps. I didn't know how the ACE 570 would handle this section, but it far exceeded my expectations.

Something that was new to me right off the bat was that all GNCC races are a dead engine start. So before the race starts they wave a blue flag and you have to kill your engine. The announcer yells on the loud speaker when there is about ten seconds until the race starts and you have to sit there in the dead silence until the green flag is waved. When they wave the green flag you can start your machine and take off. So I thought I would be smart by leaving my ACE in high gear, hold the brake with my left foot so that I could start the vehicle, and then mash the gas with my right foot as soon as the green flag dropped. This all sounded good in theory, but after giving the ACE what I thought was several good cranks I pulled my foot off the brake too early and it killed the engine. Everyone else in the race got the jump while I had to do the starting sequence over again and come from the back of the pack.

The tight turns and sweeping turns all had massive hay bails at the apex which made for a really fun racing experience! I did my best to shave the edge off these bails and keep my racing line as tight as possible. The ACE is one of the narrower Polaris machines, but I threw caution to the wind and let it all hang out. The ACE was surprisingly stable even in the high speed sweeping turns considering our overall... [Read More]
