Pro Armor GForce Pro Seats

When the Polaris RZR PRO XP was released back in 2019, one of the first things we noticed, and were thrilled about, were the new OEM seats! The level of comfort was miles ahead of the old seats that Polaris continues to put in the non PRO XP RZR models, and the new seats offer much better support for people of all sizes. Then the four seat PRO XP 4 was released, and they introduced the rad fold-flat rear seats.
For someone like me, a photographer that likes to carry around stupid amounts of equipment, the rear seat cargo configuration was a game changer. The feature offers up a ton of room with a flat floor, while making it so I don’t have to stack Pelican cases on the nice seats—avoiding ugly rub marks or rips in the seat material. The only downsides are that you have to store the rear seat backs when removed, and buying aftermarket seats was out of the question if you wanted to retain folding seats.
Pro Armor is first-to-market with a solution to that last issue, at least, with the GForce Pro suspension seats. Available in all black, blue highlights like you see here, or red highlights, they allow you to bring a little bit more color into the cockpit, assuming you want blue or red. The intense blue on the seats doesn’t quite match the Zenith Blue that’s on our Matte Titanium Metallic PRO XP 4 Ultimate. Ultimately however, this isn’t that big of a deal unless you are super OCD. I’m pretty OCD, and I think the seats still look pretty dang good in the car.
The GForce Pro seats offer a ton more cushion than the stock seats, and have a good amount of bolstering to hold you in place without making it difficult to climb in and out of the seat. The go-fast in me will always prefer the unbelievably secure feeling of a containment seat, but these are supremely comfortable for cruising with friends on the weekends. The only thing I’d comment somewhat negatively about is the length of the rear seat bottom. It’s not uncomfortable but it feels a bit short, however I believe that’s just a design limitation of the seat being able to fold over forward and fit into the footwell.
The seats are constructed from a durable marine grade vinyl, and are said to have UV protection to stay looking fresh for a long time. The seats install just like the stock units—the fronts pop in and out with the lever under the front, the rear seat bottoms swap out with bolts while the rear seat backs slot in at the bottom and clip in with a latch mechanism behind the headrest. If you’re looking for a little added comfort and style for your RZR PRO XP 4, the Pro Armor GForce Pro seats aren’t a bad way to do it!
