K&N air filter PL-2415 for the Polaris Slingshot

K&N performance air filter, number PL-2415, will replace the disposable factory air filter of 2015 and 2016 Polaris Slingshot models

The Polaris Slingshot balances along a fine line with one foot, or in this case a wheel, in another world. The Slingshot has an open car-like cockpit and controls; yet with just one wheel in the rear it is hard to categorize the Slingshot. The result is an in-the-elements, wind-in-your-face, motorcycle-like experience, with a level of superb stability and handling that can’t be found on two wheels. Whether it can be called a motorcycle, or should be called a car, is open for debate. But no matter which side of the fence one stands on, the Polaris Slingshot’s bold innovative design cannot be argued.

K&N Replacement Air Filter for Polaris Slingshot

Whether the 2015 and 2016 Polaris Slingshot can be called a motorcycle, or should be called a car, is open for debate; however there is no debate about the superior performance offered by K&N

What can be argued is that the Polaris Slingshot, which is powered by a 2.4L General Motors derived DOHC inline-4, costs as much or more than many compact cars on the road. With the power, technology, and price tag that comes with a Polaris Slingshot, it is hard to believe that it's equipped with a low-tech disposable air filter. Luckily, K&N performance filters can remedy this problem with the K&N 2015-2016 Polaris Slingshot replacement performance air filter. Instead of paper K&N replacement air filters are designed with a high-flow cotton filtration medium pleated and sandwiched between layers of coated wire mesh. Because K&N oiled cotton air filters breathe easier than typical paper filters, a K&N air filter is able to provide superior airflow resulting in superior performance.
