Polaris Slingshot V-Back Canvas Roof Top by Bullet Speed with Online Top Designer
The Bullet Speed V-Back System is the original Top for the Polaris Slingshot and in our opinion one of the most stylish. This roof system is built in the USA using 6063 Aluminum and is CNC bent in a 2 axis bender then TIG welded. The bimini tops themselves are made with Sunbrella canvas for years of fade resistant protection.

  • The Bullet Speed 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!

Canvas Care Instructions:

Normal cleaning:

  • Brush off dust and dirt with a soft brush. NEVER brush with stiff brushes since this can damage the fabric finish.
  • Spray the top with clean water. If a hose is used, to avoid high pressure.
  • Prepare a solution of solvent-free soap in warm water (no more than 100ºF) and apply it on the fabric.
  • Scrub with a soft brush allowing the solution penetrate the fabric.
  • Rinse with water to remove all traces of soap.
  • Let air dry and do not wind dry. The Canvas is highly resistant to the growth of fungus, mold, and mildew, however they can grow on embedded dirt.

Intensive Cleaning - To clean stains, follow these more intensive cleaning procedures:

  • Brush off dust and dirt with a soft brush. NEVER brush with stiff brushes since it could damage the finish and fabric.
  • Prepare a solution with 10% household bleach, 20% of solvent-free neutral detergent and 70% water.
  • Apply the solution on the fabric, allowing to remain between 15 and 20 minutes maximum.
  • Rinse with clean water several times. Bleach residues remaining on canvas combined with the sun could damage the fabric.
  • Allow to air dry and do not wind dry.
  • Repeat the process if necessary.

Is the fabric part of the top easily removable. Does it just snap on? This would be perfect if you can put on a remove fabric easy.

Received at my door step exactly 6 weeks from time of ordering. As mentioned by others it came very well packed with the highest degree of quality. One slight negative is I have a 2022 SLR model with the circular roll hoops. All of the instructions provided online are for the other style roll hoops. I had to kind of figure it out on my own but it wasn't too bad. Fit perfectly. Significantly improves the riding experience on sunny warm days.

Looks great
This top is awesome and I like that I will be riding more during the hot summer days with this shade blocking the sun! The roof frame will block the passenger side mirror slightly but you can still manage. Overall a good look for my Slingshot "S"!!!!

Love It
Top came in a crate - Very well packed - went on so easy, just follow the video. Mines a 2017 Sunset Red, color close enough. (tough color to match) - So glad I order it

Solid top and great customer support
Top showed up very well packed. Definitely leaves you with a great feeling of how this company looks at quality control. Upon putting the top on, I had some problems lining it up. In messing with it, I managed to strip out some brackets. Talked with Slingmods, they put me in touch with Bullet Speed the very next day. They gave me some advice on lining up and were so good to send me a replacement bracket kit. Upon reinstalling, the roof went on as designed and all is good. Highly suggest this company and this top.

Great and easy top
Easy installation (leave all screws loose as suggested until the end). Some reviews say that it makes cockpit quieter, but that has not been our experience. We have Baker rear luggage racks (available from Slingmods) with Givi cases mounted on the back. We had to angle the mounting plates for the Givi cases to parallel the angles of the top’s v-back and the back lines of the Slingshot. Actually looks better now with the angled cases, we think. Good materials and construction. We are happy.
