Benefits of a Full Windshield
With summer right around the corner, now is a great time to outfit your UTV with all of the latest and greatest UTV accessories.
One of those accessories that will help to keep you protected from trail debris and keep the elements out of your way is a UTV windshield. A windshield is one of the UTV upgrades that’s well-worth the investment as long as you’re making the right choice.
You may ask yourself which is better -- a full windshield, a half-windshield, or a tilting-windshield.
There pros and cons to each. But first, let’s discuss the benefits of a full windshield.
One of the benefits of a full windshield is that it gives you full protection. If you are caught in a rainstorm, you’ll stay dry in the cab of your UTV with the help of your full windshield. If you like to continue riding in the winter months, you’ll stay warm and dry with your full windshield. This also means you’ll be protected from the wind. It may not seem like much, but after being on the trail for a while and getting blasted by the wind it can be pretty draining. Keeping the wind off of you and your passenger while you ride can give you more energy, which means you’ll be able to ride longer and farther.
Your full windshield also keeps your cab free from bugs, dust, debris, gravel, sticks, and anything else that might cross your path.
You may not realize it, but adding a full windshield to your UTV will add more support to the roof of your UTV and the UTV structure. If you’re ever in an accident, this can make a big difference. The more support and protection you have, the safer you’ll be should the worst happen.
Most full windshields are mounted to the roll cage, which means you’ll get a great fit that is secure and safe. Most full windshields can be attached with quick-connect clamps or lock-and-ride systems. You can choose from a more permanent mount or something that is removable to give yourself more versatility if you ever decide that you need to remove your windshield for any reason.
There are many good brands to choose from, and discussing your options with UTV experts like those at UTV Windshields & Accessories can help you narrow down your options. But one thing you want to avoid are cheap UTV windshields.
Be sure whatever type of windshield you buy that it is made from a durable material that will last for a long time and won’t scratch easily. Lexan sheet, or a polycarbonate, is a quality option.
