Slingshot®, the bold, three-wheeled roadster, today launched the revolutionary SlingshadeTM, a color-matched top offering superb rider comfort and sun protection. Designed with perfect fitment, Slingshade acts as a perfectly-matched, aesthetically superior extension of the vehicle.
Slingshot Slingshade is the most ergonomically friendly top on the market – designed to comfortably fit an adult up to 6’4” while maximizing vehicle entry and exit points. Setting the standard with vertical gull-wing panels that have superior fit and finish, and, the Slingshade flaunts sleek lines complementing its exhilarating style features. Further, Slingshot has deliberately optimized frame materials in the manufacturing process with strong, lightweight construction and 70 percent Polycarbonate tinted windows to prevent fading and provide better sun protection.
The Slingshot engineers meticulously designed the Slingshade to be an extension of the machine’s flaunting sleek lines, using the same automotive grade paint and rear styling fins to blend seamlessly with the factory lines in Slingshot’s 2017 and 2018 model lineups.
Joining the already distinctive lineup of accessories, the Slingshade is offered in colors to perfectly match Slingshot Factory Paint, and is available at local dealerships for purchase and installation by a trained Slingshot technician starting September 5, 2017.
“The Slingshade was created for drivers and riders to discover and achieve the same open-road, three-wheeled feel accomplished when driving a Slingshot, yet adding protection from the elements,” said Rachael Elia, Slingshot Marketing Manager. “There is no comparison of the open-air rush achieved while driving a Slingshot, and the Slingshade provides the perfect barrier from the sun without compromising style.”
