Polaris Slingshot Raptor Roof Top System by Thermal R&D
Roof top systems have become one of thee most popular mods for Slingshot owners, because they allow both the driver and passenger to spend more time enjoying the drive, and less time worrying about baking in the sun. Thermal R&D has knocked it out of the park with their top design.. dubbed the "Raptor". Thermal R&D is located in Sunny Southern California and is responsible for creating our two most popular selling exhaust systems for the Slingshot, the Dual Rear Exit Touring Exhaust, as well as our Bugatti inspired Dual Sport exhaust. If you own a Thermal R&D product you know first hand that the crafstmanship of their product line is second to none. It's truly top of the line stuff. Well their new Raptor Roof Top System is no exception. The roof top took 6 months to design and is manufactured right here in the U.S.A. The entire top frame is constructed from tig welded aluminum tubing and topped off with removable aluminum roof panels, then powder coated with a lightly textured satin black finish giving the product an aggresive, yet refined look. The build quality is unreal... even when you look up from the drivers seat you'll appreciate just how much good ole' fashion American ingenuity went into this product.

The top features two raptor wings that elevate with a built in hydraulic shock on each side. To lift the wings from their locked position, you'll press the latch located on the underside of the wing allowing it to articulate up and out of the way.. giving you adequate head clearance to enter and exit the Slingshot. You'll notice when in the seated position with the wings closed you have an ample amount of head room with or without a helmet.

The roof panels are held in place with 1/4 turn fasteners often seen in race car body panel applications. We've done this so that you can remove any of the 4 roof panels with ease. To remove a panel simply turn all corresponding fasteners for that panel counter clockwise, then lift the panel off. To Re-install, reverse those steps by laying the roof panel back in place and turning the fasteners clockwise a 1/4 turn.

Accessories (Sold Separately)

  • Optional Overhead Dual Speaker Mount with Switch Plate - The center of the roof top with the thermal logo plate is slightly elevated. We'll that's not just for looks. That section is elevated because we offer an "optional" speaker & switch plate that can be mounted inside the cabin on the underside of the roof. The plate features (2) cutouts so that you can house a pair of your favorite 6 1/2" speakers and also includes 6 dash switch locations so that you can control your favorite 12v mods from the switch plate above.. kinda like a fighter pilot. Now you're probably wondering how you're gonna get your wiring up to the overhead switch plate without having an eye sore of wiring in plain sight. To address this, we've created a circular cutout on the left side frame bar nearest the mirror mount, so that you can route your wiring through the frame and out of sight. There's also a corner junction box on the drivers side that's removable, that then allows you to continue your wiring run to the "center most" portion of the roof top, where your optional speakers and switches will be located.
  • Optional Rear View Mirror Bung Welded into the Frame - Since the Slingshot doesn't come with a Rear View Mirror.. we've also added a threaded bung into the frame that allows you to easily add our optional Ram Mount Rear View Mirror System in place.
  • Optional Tufskinz Thermal R&D Colored Logo Insert - Lastly, we do offer the Thermal R&D Logo in both Carbon Fiber and Most OE Slingshot Paint Colors for a subtle pop of color to your new Raptor Roof Top System!

Great product
I ordered the R&D roof top with the speaker plate with switches. The product was great and assembled easily with 2 people. My husband and I had it installed in about an hour. The only problem we had was with the driver side latch for the part the swings up was off alignment a little which made it a little difficult to latch and unlatch but with some loosening and tightening some bolts we got it aligned. Sling mods was great with responding to emails. The only complaint I have is they charged me $150 for freight shipping and I had the top delivered to my husbands work, where they have a loading dock.

Thermal R&D Raptor Roof
Due to COVID-19, I had to wait 4-1/2 months for delivery, but it was well worth it. The roof system looks great on my 2017 Slingshot SLR.
The installation took a total of around 4-1/2 to 5 hours with the help of another person, who made it a lot easier when it came to lifting the roof over the Slingshot and alignment of the bolt holes.
It turned out to be an easy installation with no real issues or problems. Everything that was needed was included in the kit, except for few tools required.
I am very pleased with the way it really dressed up my Slingshot and thank R&D for a great product and SlingMods for carrying what I consider a great roof system.
Thanks again to both entities..

Thermal R&D Raptor Roof System
Just put the system on our 2020 R. I love the look and functionality. Definitely need 2 people to install. My son and I followed Bradyn's Installation video above. We rec'd all parts, with some spares. Everything was labeled and separated in the box. Slight cardboard box damage, but no parts were. My son and I put the roof on and then installed PRP LED Grab handles (pair). Looks well together. Can't really give a road test, it's Winter in NY State.
