Corbin Introduces Fleetliner Saddlebags for Polaris Slingshot
Hollister, CA – Corbin’s Fleetliner bags were specifically designed for the Slingshot to emulate the visuals of the bike and integrate perfectly. Notice how the lines and details of the stock bodywork have been incorporated into the design of the bags and they give a more balanced aesthetic. These new Fleetliner bags offer a whopping 104 liters of storage with both bags combined. For those not yet committed to the metric system, that equates to over three and a half cubic feet!

Fleetliner saddlebags are specially engineered for each vehicle so they fit the profile perfectly, like pieces of a puzzle. This enables the bags to carry the weight of the contents closer to the centerline and maintain a good center of gravity. Another benefit of Corbin’s design and mounting system is a smaller overall width for less wind resistance. You won’t even notice they’re back there when riding and they remain stable at all speeds.

Because the Slingshot doesn’t lean in corners, Corbin was able to make these bags larger than their typical Fleetliner bags… approximately 50 liters per side (left saddlebag holds more than the right saddlebag for shock clearance). Since all of the saddlebag capacity runs inboard, you must take care when running a larger tire/wheel combo. The Corbin R&D team left enough clearance for a 305 series tire which is more than you can put on a stock rim. If you go with an aftermarket wheel, be sure the offset is correct so you won’t face a rubbing problem with the tire on the saddlebags.

Fleetliner doors secure with a double latch to assure they won’t pop open accidentally and the latch release is lockable to secure your gear. In addition to the large body area of the bags, Corbin built a pouch into the doors to keep smaller items easily at hand. Doors are made with thermoformed ABS for durability and a clean finish.
Both bags come fully lined to protect your cargo and are fully sealed to guard your valuables in bad weather weather. Installation on the Slingshot is fairly simple and Corbin supplies all required mounting brackets. Saddlebags are constructed of our roto-molded polyurethane material and come to you prepainted. Saddlebag bodies and brackets all come painted in wrinkle black to blend with the Slingshot chassis and lower plastics. Saddlebag doors come color coordinated to your OEM paint.
Included with the saddlebag set is our rear fender / splash guard that is an integral part of the setup. The fender component is a heavy duty ABS material in a mock Carbon-Fiber pattern to give it a sporty look. Corbin’s fender works with the license plate light transferred from you stock fender. The Corbin fender installation is a required component of the saddlebags.

Installation is relatively simple and does not require welding or chassis modification. One of the stock plastic underbody panels will need to be modified during installation. (Drilling and cutting template supplied) All Corbin brackets bolt to stock locations on the Polaris chassis.

Corbin Introduces Sport Bucket Seats for New Polaris Slingshot

Hollister, CA – Corbin designed their new Sport Bucket Seats for the Polaris Slingshot on platforms that work on the existing Polaris seat frame and slider. Instead of building up complete racing style seats with shoulder bolsters, Corbin opted more for a Sport Bucket style with thigh and side bolsters, but keeps your shoulders free. Not only does this look more appropriate inside the Slingshot, but it maximizes cabin space and doesn’t make you feel cramped.

Corbin used their expertise in seat design to provide seat and back panels that cradle your body ergonomically. This gives you excellent, long range support that eliminates hot spots. They also made the thigh bolsters with a softer angle so they add more seating area for more square inches of body contact. This helps hold your body in place yet not “confined” while giving additional comfort value. 

Corbin designed their new Sport Bucket seats to accommodate a rider wearing a helmet without have your head tilt forward. They provide just enough extra room to
allow for the helmet, but still provide the needed support and whiplash protection. This equates to approximately 1.5 inches if you’re wondering.

 

On top Corbin uses genuine leather seating with a wide range of color and texture options. Leather will breathe with your body and break in along with Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam for a personalized fit. Corbin’s Slingshot seats include a new specialty Slingshot Corbin logo embroidered into the headrest area.

 

Corbin’s Sport Bucket seats also have the option of electric heaters built in. These seats feature a heating unit in both the seat base AND the seat back. You’ll be amazed at how well this works to make your whole body feel warmer on those chilly morning rides. Our heater units are full self -contained within the seat and come pre-installed. Corbin includes a wiring pigtail that integrates with your Slingshot’s harness and runs up to the dash to plug into our included heater switches. Installation requires only standard hand tools and a little patience.

Speaking of heat, have you noticed how hot the seats get if you leave your Slingshot sitting in the sun for a little while? Corbin includes a fabric sunshade with every seat. The stretchy material pulls over the seat to give some shade while you’re out and about. When you get back, just pull the cover off and stow it away in the handy storage pouch built into the back of the headrests.
