Desert Molding Concepts, Inc. (DMC) entered into a development program with R2C Performance Products some months ago with the goal to bring the most efficient highest quality filter to the RZR market. If you are not familiar with R2C, you soon will be. R2C has quietly been making in roads to the off road arena working directly with race teams to develop a highly efficient low restriction dry filter element that is nothing short of amazing. Not only is it amazing, it is also completely serviceable, so it could quite possibly be the last filter you ever buy for your ride. Results of testing the factory Polaris RZR XP 1000 air filter proved an efficiency of only 98%. In comparison, the R2C exceeds 99.97% this is even more efficient than what is currently being offered to the off road industry by any other company. The parent company to R2C has a 65 year history of severe duty filtration in several arenas including the military. This extensive knowledge is now being applied to motorsports with phenomenal result.
1. Engine protection is unmatched by any other filter currently being offered
2. Designed to shed dust cake while in use (which mitigates restriction rise)
3. Excellent initial restriction performance
3. Dry element with no messy cleaning or oiling
4. Completely serviceable
After DMC’s review of the stock RZR XP 1000 air filter and box there were two concerns that they wanted to address. The stock air filter is a slip fit radial seal design much like you would see for an on road application (not great for an offroad application). So, DMC added a large flange and clamping surface to the R2C filter for a positive connection to the intake tube.
Also the stock RZR XP 1000 air filter is completely dependent on the lid of the air box to keep it in place. The clamps for the air box lid are weak at best, can easily bend out of shape, and if not installed correctly can cause a potential problem (lose the lid and you lose the filter). So, DMC added a stud to the end of the filter much like you see on ATV’s to positively support the end of the filter and completely eliminate the possibility of the filter being dislodged (even if the lid is lost).
So if you’re looking for a highly efficient easy to service air filter for your Polaris RZR XP 1000, then look no further!
