From Seizmik's vented and scratch-resistant polycarbonate windshield to the hard-coated poly windshield options by SuperATV, the best polycarbonate windshields for the Polaris General can be found at Everything Polaris Ranger. We have kick-out poly windshields that can be easily taken off and stored when not needed, as well as fold-down poly windshields that provide similar benefits in terms of protection and airflow. Some riders have had bad experiences with old-fashion polycarbonate windshields that weren't scratch-resistant. The newer versions of poly windshields, however, incorporate hard layers and coatings on their exterior surfaces to protect them from rocks, twigs, branches, and other trailside threats. Even the non-coated poly windshields can remain scratch free if properly used. As long as you don't rub them down when dry, micro scrapes from dirt and dust particles can be avoided. Even though non-coated polycarbonate windshields are more likely to scratch, they are actually much stronger than glass, and won't chip, crack, or shatter as easily as glass windshields do. And because they are stronger, they don't require a thick and heavy framework to remain stable, which makes poly windshields a much lighter option.
Many riders don't realize that polycarbonate is not the same as plexiglass. Furthermore, there are multiple variations of proprietary polycarbonate materials that are used by specific manufacturers of Polaris General windshields. So just because your buddy wasn't happy with the crappy plastic windshield he bought off Ebay, doesn't mean that his or her experience is an accurate representation of every non-glass UTV windshield on the market. You don't need to stay a safe distance behind your friend with a heavy foot out of fear that a rock will impale your windshield. And you don't need to worry about damaging your windshield when towing your machine on the interstate. With the advanced polycarbonate windshield solutions from Everything Polaris Ranger, you can ride in confidence knowing that you won't be affected by rocks, dust, insects, or bad weather in the cab of your Polaris General.
