Windshield.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on a half windshield? I have a full one and hate it. It’s super hot all the time. My biggest concerns are wind deflection and debris.

I have what everyone calls the kolpin windshield. Actually kolpin is just one company that brands the same windshield. BRP sells it too and so does directions 2. The cheapest place I found it was ebay and here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Full-Tilt-W...IAAOSw78xcmeTg It has closed plus 2 open positions and its also really easy to just pop the top section off leaving you with a 1/4 windshield for summer. The superatv is easier to operate as it has one handle in the middle with struts whereas the kolpin has one on each side. The superatv will open all the way and remain attached while the kolpin has two fixed open settings and the top must be removed if you want it all the way open (does the superatv top come completely off? can you run full speed with it fully opened?). They're both made of the same material. The main reason I went with the so called kolpin is because it was $100 cheaper. I've been running it for a few years and am satisfied. I see how the mechanism superatv uses is more convenient but then again its not much trouble to operate two handle/latches instead of one.

here in HOT Florida,i have a satv half windshield that deflects frontal wind & is easily installed or removed ,we only use it for our so called winter evening rides when the temp. drops below 60 or when riding in rainy weather. i usually wear a full coverage helmet when riding hard .

Satv flip up windshield is great. Full speed when flipped up is not a problem.

Another vote for the SATV flipup. Probably the #1 windshield on the market. I have had the half windshields and if you ever get caught in a raging rain storm that will end the half windshield idea.

The tilt up is what I have on mine. Works great in all weather ! Fault: The windshield tilts in the middle and puts the edges right in your line of sight. I have to raise myself up or down slightly to get full vision. Not bad and you get use to it. Like the cornor posts on your truck getting in the way. 😁😎

“Winter evening rides when the temp drops below 60.” Baaahahaha!!!!!!! I wish. Sometimes that’s the high temp during the summer in Boogerland.

I may have to grow old, but you can't make me grow up!
