ASSAULT INDUSTRIES’ POLARIS RZR TURBO S
The team at Assault Industries are true UTV enthusiasts who do a lot of driving—for fun and product development. Along the way, they find out where popular machines need improving. When a machine’s rough edges are exposed, Assault works on ways to increase comfort, convenience or reliability. Assault Industries’ Polaris RZR Turbo S includes accessories that polish all the stock machine’s rough edges and some that boost its performance and style.
COVERING THE COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE BASICS
The Polaris RZR Turbo S is a high-end sport model that comes from the dealer with all the engine and suspension performance most drivers could ask for, and without many basic comfort and convenience features. Assault solved the machine’s lack of side mirrors with its Sidewinder billet-aluminum convex side mirrors. The rugged aluminum mirrors feature a wide field of view, replaceable bezels that are available in a variety of colors and impact-resistant mounts. Assault’s Bomber convex center mirror completes the rearward visibility. When sunlight becomes blinding, Assault’s Ghost, tinted, see-through, polycarbonate sun visors block harsh light without blocking forward visibility. Like automotive sun visors, they stow out of the way when not in use.
HARD SHELL, SOFT INTERIOR
Assault’s Tank door skins provide complete protection from dirt entering the cab, and they mount to the original door frame, so Assault’s door-mounted hydration/storage bags mount easily. With Assault’s UTV storage bag, the Turbo S has all the covered storage it needs for long rides.
Simpson Racing’s Pro Sport seats offer more comfort and support than the stock seats, and they’re customizable to complement your machine’s look. Rugged Radios’ RRP660 two-person system makes it easy for the riders in the RZR to talk to each other or people in other vehicles. Not all Turbo S models come with a roof, so Assault added a custom Cagewrx Competition cage and roof for more protection and comfort. A Baja Designs dome light offers much-needed light in the cab after dark.
Baja Designs also provided extra lighting for safe night driving, including XL Pro and S2 Pro driving lights and OnX6 light bars. The front-turn Fang light set, third brake light, turn signals and horn were sourced from XTC Power Products. A blue LED buggy whip makes the Turbo S more visible day or night.
ITP Coyote tires on KMC Grenade beadlock wheels provide all-terrain traction and the reliability needed for multi-day adventures. A 32-inch spare can be mounted to the Assault Adventure spare-tire and accessory rack. The Adventure rack lifts to free up bed space and offers attachment points for a variety of accessories, like Rotopax Road & Trail storage containers. Assault’s Stealth Lucent front bumper and Hellfire grille toughen the front of the Turbo S.
MORE POWER JUST TO HAVE IT
With 168 horsepower stock, the Turbo S is a rocket, but more power never hurts, especially with the added weight of accessories and supplies. Evolution Powersports reprogrammed the ECU, added a silicone charge tube, “Vent to Atmosphere” blow-off valve and Magnum exhaust. K&N’s Performance air-intake system provides unrestricted breathing and a cleanable, reusable filter for the turbo engine. Evolution Powersports can take the Turbo S to 204 horsepower!
Eibach Pro-UTV Stage 2 springs and shock-absorbing Walker Links sway bar links give the suspension on the Turbo S a more forgiving ride and better control at high speeds. Factory UTV’s Polaris RZR XP Turbo S Ultimate 3/8-inch UHMW kit protects the A-arms, underside, and trailing arms from rocks and roost. With its many upgrades, the Assault Industries RZR Turbo S deserved a distinctive look, so the machine got a custom Assault wrap from Hybrid Wraps. The result is a faster, tougher and far more comfortable machine to rack up miles in.
