How did Aegis come about in the first place?
All good ideas come from a good story. Ours is pretty good…
We’ve been outdoorsmen our whole lives… camping, riding, hunting, fishing… the whole deal. And through the years, we’ve come to not only appreciate the beauty of nature but also the wonderful friendships we’ve made along the way through our outdoor experiences.
In 2011, we were out on one of our many yearly camping trips. Our whole gang was there — a crew that had been coming year after year to the same place at the same time of year. Danny, the patriarch of our gang (and world-class sculptor and inventor) was chatting with our buddy, Rich, who had just come back from a ride in his side-by-side.
“How was the ride, Rich?” Danny asked.
“Man… it was great, except for the dust. It’s out of control in these things. You spend all this money on a vehicle like this and you can’t go for a ride without getting covered in dirt. Shoot… my wife won’t even ride with me anymore because of how dusty she gets. It just drives her nuts. I’m sure my dog would say the same thing if he could talk…” Rich responded.
“Well, Rich, why don’t you let me figure out a way to take care of that dust problem for you? I think I have an idea,” Danny said.
“Really? You think you could come up with something?” Rich asked. With that, the inventor went to work. And the Aegis Air Spoiler was born.
Of course, the story wouldn’t be complete without returning to Rich and his experience. Here, in Rich’s own words, is what he thinks…
“I had always struggled with the right combination of windshields, full or half, then the rear window, some sort of netting or a full enclosure, just anything to assist in the control of the overwhelming amount of dust that accumulated in the cab of my RZR. Not only was the dust horrible in the cab, but the smell of exhaust fumes that filled the cab, and then my gear in the back was constantly covered with dirt to the point that some items were unusable.
My wife didn’t enjoy riding with me anymore due to the circulating dust that came underneath the UTV, in and around the sides, and the billowing of dirt that fogged in from behind. It didn’t matter what speed we would go, the dust just consumed us.
I had spent a lot of money trying to fix the problem and nothing really helped. Well, that all changed within minutes of my first ride with the Aegis Air Spoiler. I couldn’t believe it! It really is amazing how well the spoiler works.
Danny said he could fix the problem for me and did he ever! He made me an Aegis Air Spoiler and I instantly fell in love. I had spent a lot of money trying to fix the problem and nothing really helped. Well, that all changed within minutes of my first ride with the Aegis Air Spoiler. I couldn’t believe it!
It really is amazing how well the spoiler works circulating dust out of the cab and out of the back of the bed of the UTV. The bed remains clean and free of layers of dust throughout your ride. I can keep my gear clean and usable, and the best part is my wife now rides with me again! She doesn’t get the dirty feel in her eyes, hair and mouth. I really recommend this product. It’s strong, low profile, and installs in minutes. This is a must have!!”
We think Rich is right.
