Keep the elements at bay with new roof
If you’re looking at UTV upgrades, one of the first parts you should consider is a new UTV roof. Apart from being required in many different classes of UTV racing, a roof is an indispensable component if you’re looking to outfit your ride for all weather conditions; get the right roof and windshield and you’ve got all the wind, dust, rain, and sun protection you should ever need. Many aftermarket cargo racks and baskets also require a roof panel for proper mounting, so installing one might just pave the way for future upgrades.
Most UTV Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) offer their own UTV roof options for models within their own catalogs, but the aftermarket can be a great place to turn to as well. Here are some of the best UTV roof options in the industry.

SuperATV Plastic Roof for Polaris Ranger
Looking for an alternative to Polaris’s own plastic roof panels? SuperATV is a well-known and trusted brand, and the company’s Ranger plastic roofs are exemplary of the sort of quality we’ve come to expect. This UTV roof design is available for both two-sear and four-seat Polaris Ranger models, from the 2015-’16 Ranger XP 570 to the 2014+ Ranger XP 900 Crew, and many more besides. It features durable 6mm plastic construction, and it will accommodate most windshield and mirror options out there. Perhaps best of all, it’s the perfect base for a roof rack, basket, and any auxiliary lighting you might want to install. Beyond the Ranger, SuperATV also makes a plastic roof for various Polaris RZR models.
Kolpin UTV PRO Series Roof
If it’s a Sport UTV like the Polaris RZR you’re shopping roofs for, we wouldn’t shy away from recommending the Kolpin PRO Series plastic roof. When acceleration and handling are everything, a lightweight roof is essential, and this roof panel utilizes heavy-duty, roto-molded linear low-density polyethylene to give you all the strength you need without too much of a weight penalty, at a very agreeable price. That’s a win-win-win. The Kolpin UTV Pro Series roof is available for Polaris Ranger, Polaris RZR, and Arctic Cat Wildcat models.
Kolpin 3-Piece UTV Roof
What we love most about Kolpin’s plastic UTV roof is its flexible three-piece design, which allows it to be matched to a vast range of UTV models, including most Polaris Rangers from 2009, and machines from the likes of Yamaha Rhino and Kawasaki Teryx. That sort of flexibility is rare in the powersports world, where there are myriad different model lines with unique dimensions. Granted, the three-piece design makes Kolpin’s 3-piece UTV roof a bit less-than-ideal if you plan on mounting a roof rack or cargo basket, many of which require a broad, flat surface. But if it’s protection from the elements you’re after, and you don’t want to shell out for a specially designed model-specific plastic UTV roof, the Kolpin three-piece plastic roof is an outstanding option.
Seizmik Soft Top with Rear Panel
If you don’t need a rigid roof panel to mount accessories, and a simple soft top will do, we love this Seizmik soft top with rear panel. Seizmik makes this soft top/rear panel combination for a wide array of Polaris Ranger and Yamaha Rhino UTVs. It’s a simple design with a back panel featuring a large rear window, for even more protection from the elements, and it’s made from durable, UV-resistant denier nylon with a PVC coating. It’s also a breeze to install, and goes on tight and secure thanks to adhesive-backed velcro and a clever Quickfit tightening system – no distracting flapping in the wind.
Can-Am Commander/Maverick Bimini Soft Roof
One popular Sport UTV model we haven’t mentioned yet is the Can-Am Maverick, and for that model, the OEM soft top beats just about anything else on the market. This part, which is very nicely priced and also compatible with the Can-Am Commander Utility UTV, is UV-resistant and water-repellent for excellent protection, thanks to 600-denier polyester with official Can-Am branding. It secures quickly and easily using a set of velcro straps, and it’s even compatible with Can-Am’s Light Rack. And the best part? The light weight of the soft UTV roof doesn’t substantially raise the Can-Am Maverick’s mass or center-of-gravity, so performance is minimally affected.
SuperATV Dark Tinted UTV Roof
Let more sun in with a tinted polycarbonate UTV roof, like this option from SuperATV. SuperATV makes its dark tinted roof for the Polaris RZR, Can-Am Maverick, Kawasaki Teryx, Honda Pioneer, Polaris Ranger, Polaris General and more. This SuperATV roof upgrade blocks out rain and falling hazards with its durable, impact-resistant polycarbonate, without totally blocking out the sun. It’s available with or without a spoiler designed into the trailing edge, so you can select the design that best suits your taste and know that either way, you’re getting a strong, high-quality, rattle-free UTV roof.
ECOTRIC Black Aluminum Roof Top
If you need the utmost strength and protection but can’t afford too much of a bump in weight, aluminum is the ticket. This aluminum UTV roof for two-seat models of the Polaris RZR 900 (2015-’19), RZR 1000 (2014-’19), and Turbo (2014-’19) makes our list because it offers all that at an outstanding price point, with strong 2mm-thick aluminum featuring a durable black powdercoat for protection against the elements. It also adds less to the overall height than a comparable plastic UTV roof, meaning you can retain your RZR’s excellent roof clearance out on the trail, and an integrated spoiler gives your RZR a sharp, sporty appearance.
