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.

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!

**Please note that the MFG has replaced the 1/4 turn Dzus fasteners shown with a new style of hardware, allowing for better fitment during assembly throughout all model years, while further reducing panel vibration.

•             Alloy Steel Hex Drive Flat Head Screws (powder coated black)
•             Brass Countersunk Washers (powder coated black)
•             Abrasion-Resistant Cushioning Washers (for noise and vibration dampening)
•             Steel Nylon-Insert Flange Locknuts


  • The roof system DOES NOT provide any type of rollover or crash support for your Slingshot and is intended to be used as a SUN SHADE ONLY!

One Nice Roof
This roof really beats the heat. Our first summer was like a bake oven in our new 2020 Slingshot SL, sun beating down on us, black interior just made for a hot ride so we ordered a Thermal Raptor Roof Top in July and by the time it arrived having to have it Fabricated it arrived in late Nov or early Dec so it was to late to get any enjoyment last year but this year a different story. Now we ride in enjoyment not having sun beating down on us the full time like before our rides now are longer and a lot more enjoyable.

Thermal R & D Raptor Roof top
Initially, ordered this unit last year, unfortunately, was having some fitment issues installing it, reached out to Chuck Asher at Thermal R & D, long story short, he ordered a whole new roof top and was wiling to ship it to me at their expense. I chose to go on a road trip to Lancaster, CA where in an hour and a half, he installed the new roof top which fit perfectly. Quality, well made, solid, detailed, works well in sun protection and gives the Slingshot a road warrior look to it. All in all, an excellent purchase, great customer service. Also, while there, toured the shop, where they make some really quality after market automotive exhausts. Will definitely, consider future purchases from them, kudos to Slingmods for such a quality partner.

Thermal R&D Raptor Rooftop 2021 Slingshot R
I had this top for a couple of weeks now so time fore a review. I live near Thermal R&D and they wanted to ensure fitment on the 2021 model year so they contacted me and invited me onsite to have this installed by the designer of the top! They are an awesome bunch and the designer is meticulous and leans hard on quality and craftsmanship. The install went great and they ensured that I was 100% happy with my product. Customer service was spot on! I will be purchasing more of their products!

On to the top. This thing is solid! Looks great and performs admirably. No rattles, squeaks, or buffeting. Provides adequate sun protection(I live in the desert) all machining holes were solid and I also added the RAM mount rearview mirror. I have put 500 miles with this top installed and have yet to be disappointed.

Great top period!!!
Very well built top. Took about an hour to install and is well built. I love cruising now without the sun beating down on me!!! I have taken it on the highway up to 80 mphs with no issues at all. No vibrations or noises coming from the top. They did their research when they built these. Very easy to get in and out with the gull wings. Cannot go wrong!!
