Roof racks are cool, full stop. They are the foundation of all overlanding and serious off-roaders. They give us the ability to utilize every square inch of our rigs without sacrificing interior space, and not to mention, they look cool as hell. Well, we know Polaris clearly agrees because they have officially partnered with Rhino-Rack to provide factory accessories for a wide range of Polaris vehicles.
Can you get a roof rack for a UTV?
Founded in 1992, Rhino-Rack is solely focused on making adventure and your gear a bit easier to handle. It doesn’t take much research to find Rhino-Racks wears if you are looking for racks. So, Polaris decided that while there is nothing stopping people from buying Rhino-Racks on their own and mounting them to a UTV, now they are purpose-built and designed for these machines.
This collaboration allows Polaris customers to order a new machine with roof racks designed specifically for the contours and uses of each particular machine.
The Rhino-Rack Lock and Ride system
One of the most adventure-ready machines Polaris makes is the 2022 Polaris General. The 2022 model will now offer quick attachment systems in the bed. This allows for quick adaptations for your storage needs to your activities. The Lock and Ride system will let General owners swap their mount accessories for anything from a shovel, space for a cooler, or a hunting rifle.
The General isn’t the only one reaping the benefits of this new collaboration. The 2022 Polaris Ranger will have the option of having a bed rack system and a roof rack system from the factory. This easily triples the amount of usable space for the new Ranger. Each rack will also require specific mounts to ensure a proper fit.
How much can this rack system hold?
As UTV Driver wisely points out, Rhino-Rack has been serving the overlanding community for years. They are no strangers to the importance of storage space. It is clear that they took the overlanding approach to the rack systems and shrunk it down for the UTV market.
The Ranger racks can be used as flat mounting surfaces to mount anything from wild game to extra gear. Rhino-Rack makes specific mounts for a spare tire holder, multipurpose tool holder, traction board mount, gun mounting bracket, cargo corner bracket, and farm jack mount.
Polaris is nothing if not dedicated to its customers’ needs. In a conversation with Polaris representatives, they mentioned that storage space is often the most complained about issue with Polaris machines. The company obviously took these complaints seriously, and as a result, we get this perfect partnership.
Rhino-Rack is confident in its teammate
UTV Driver notes that Rhino-Rack seems to be as excited about this partnership as we are. So excited, in fact, that it is giving away a fully-loaded 2022 Polaris General, equipped with its Rhino-Rack bed system.
