Safe Riding Gear

Always wear helmet, eye protection, gloves, long-sleeve shirt, long pants, over-the-ankle boots and your seat belt at all times when operating your Polaris GENERAL. Protective gear reduces the chance of injury.

Rider Comfort
Under certain operating conditions, heat generated by the engine and exhaust system can elevate temperatures in the rider cab area. The condition occurs most frequently when a vehicle is being operated in high ambient temperatures at low speeds and/or high load conditions for an extended period of time. The use of certain windshields, roofs and/or cab systems may contribute to this condition by restricting airflow. Any discomfort due to heat buildup in this area can be minimized by wearing proper riding apparel and by varying speeds to increase airflow. 

Safe Riding Gear

Helmet
Wearing a helmet can prevent a severe head injury. Whenever riding your GENERAL, always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards. 

Approved helmets in the USA and Canada bear a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) label.

Approved helmets in Europe, Asia and Oceania bear the ECE 22.05 label. The ECE mark consists of a circle surrounding the letter E, followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted approval. The approval number and serial number also will be displayed on the label.

Eye Protection
Do not depend on eyeglasses or sunglasses for eye protection. Whenever riding your GENERAL, always wear shatterproof goggles or use a shatterproof helmet face shield. Polaris recommends wearing approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8, Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eye wear is kept clean.

Gloves
Wear gloves for comfort and for protection from the sun, cold weather and other elements. 

Boots
Wear sturdy over-the-ankle boots for support and protection. Never ride a Polaris vehicle with bare feet or sandals. 

Clothing
Wear long sleeves and long pants to protect your arms and legs.
